I love subtle shades on interiors, especially white; it magically makes everything around happy, calm and put together. It is never boring but just in case you do get bored you have like a big huge white canvas at your disposal primed and prepped to go in and fill it with your artwork.
You can pair white with pastels, but like I said it is just a canvas and you can never go wrong with whatever color you pick for further additions. You can go rustic with woodwork for depth or accentuate with natural plants around or even play around with bold shades like gold and black and see what works best for you.
Be Bold, try White!! 😛 😉
