Bright pops of color on white walls is one of the top decorating trends for 2014! This white room is not classic but is alive with color. A white interior is completely versatile and it's decor can be very refreshing and relaxing but, at the same time, can also become monotonous. That’s why it’s good to have some color as well. You can either create a modern sophisticated feeling or make a energetic artistic impact. Your white walls can be your canvas for wonderful pops of color and texture. Think "art museum" and be a painter that begins with a blank canvas that he then turns into an art piece. New York’s museums and galleries, from The Met to The Whitney, and The Museum of Modern Art still remain, for the most part, stark white so the wonderful colors and artwork can be spotlighted.
As much as I love white, we all need a little color in our lives. This is why I love the idea of white interiors adorned with accents of a bright color or "islands of eccentricity" to quote Cat Weaver from GalleryIntell. Usually, the pop of color that is introduce in a white room becomes the focal point of that area. So think carefully before you get to work
One of my favorite interiors is a classic white room with bright colors. It is a great way to mix modern with antique.
Don’t think white walls have to be boring, they give you the opportunity to add color is different ways with colorful and busy rugs, patterns, pillows, accessories, furniture, e.t.c. If you are working to liven up a neutral room, one of the ways to add a splash of color is through artwork.
If you have a room that is predominately white, one of the neatest and most unique ways to decorate is through a pop of color. That’s because this decorating idea will draw the eye, create impact, and add something attractive to the space. Adding a pop of color has been a really fun way to liven and brighten a very neutral color palette of a room.
Black is such a good accent when using pops of color in an all white room.
You can start with hanging colorful art. Then bring the colors off the walls and onto your furnishings and floors.
On the white flooring you can throw down some bright color rugs and add on few well place pillows. This will create an airy, spacious and cheerful space.
Bright color patterns add surprise and a twist to regular decorating because it is so unexpected.

If you want to do something dramatic and beautiful in a neutral room, consider livening it up with splashes of color. There are different ways to do this, but make sure you always incorporate artwork. I love the art gallery style of this room.
Rooms can look fresh and modern with just the right amount of pops of color. A few smart pops of color make all the difference in a neutral room.
Remember it doesn't have to be just one pop. A variety of bright, primary colors can really liven up a room.
I can't stress enough that art is one of the best ways to make the space pop with color whether it is the only splash in the room or it works with other pieces of decor.
Your brights can be solid.....
.....or patterned like this sofa.
I love the open shelves with the variety of colored glassware.
Accessories like books and other collectibles can provide all the color a room needs
Pink and yellow your favorite colors this year? Next year it might be orchid and orange. The beauty of bringing color into your white interiors through pillows is that you can just swap them out for for other colors anytime you want.
The geometric patterns and bright pops of color are so energetic.
This is definitely a style to have fun with.
Fun splashes of color that work so well on the white backdrop, are tempered by the beautiful wooden seat.
