All White Everything: Decorating With White

Sometimes less is more when it comes to color. If modern trends like neon and chevron don’t get you excited, perhaps an all-white motif is the answer. The upside: white rooms are a clean slate allowing you to add a dash of color or subtly show your wild side with a cheetah rug.

If you like the look, don’t shy away from white because you’re scared of spills. If you have laundry detergent, a rag, and a blender you can take care of almost any blemish on your white couch. Here’s how:

  1. Mix one scoop of laundry detergent with one cup of water in your blender. Mix until it looks like whipped cream. (Afterwards, don’t forget to clean your blender! Here’s how: Clean Your Blender)

  2. After it’s mixed, use your rag to apply the mixture to the areas of the couch that need cleaning.

  3. Dip your second rag in clean water, wring it out, and then go over the soapy areas. Blot the area until the soap residue is gone.

  4. Let your white couch completely dry before sitting on it again.

Do you think less is more? Or does white pale in comparison to color?
