White makes for the perfect backdrop

While white may not be the most exciting color by itself, it can serve as the perfect backdrop for other colors. A white wall or shelf makes everything else in your decor stand out and pop, so it's ideal for creating a clean, minimal space to show off your favorite decorations.

Go for the background
White doesn't need to be the start of the show to play an important part. If you go for an all-white kitchen or living room, the possibilities are endless for an accent color. Try putting in elements of baby blue or even a bold, cherry red. Once your accent color is in front of its white background, your eyes will be utterly delighted. Using these accents with not only white walls, but also couches, chairs and tables, will increase this wonderful effect.

Embrace the Zen of white
Any room that's rendered entirely in white will make you feel totally calm. The clean, unaltered neutral of white radiates a pale glow that makes you feel at ease. Use this to your advantage - take a bedroom that doesn't get enough light and redo the walls, the sheets and even the furniture to get that distinct white glow. To maximize the light you do get, try to use light filtering blinds and shades by themselves or along with very thin curtains. You may even want to use mirrors instead of pictures on the wall to help increase the light in the room, noted Country Living magazine.

Big rooms can be perfect in white
If you've got a large room in your house that you just don't know what to do with, consider giving it a totally white overhaul. You'll make the space not only feel a little larger, but much more open and breathable. Get some new sheer shades or cellular shades in a bright white color to really make the space feel airy with the combination of natural light and bright paint.

House Beautiful magazine noted that a white room like this makes a perfect backdrop for lightly finished antique furniture. The pale tones of pine and other woods will make for a gentle air in your great white room that will set you and your guests at ease. Adding an oversized houseplant in a white glazed pot can add to the lively look.
