I did some earlier posts on colors that are popular for the Spring 2013 season but one color (or lack there of) that never goes out of style is white.  It’s clean and crisp and provides the perfect back drop to let all of your other color loves pop!

It may not be practical to turn your whole home into a visual display of lily white but there are a few key pieces that can help you achieve the look on a smaller scale.

#1.  White Slipcovers

This is a scary piece to incorporate if you have kids, or pets, or wear shoes or like to sit but opting for fabrics that are more forgiving, like white denim as opposed to white linen, can help make this a reasonable choice for your home and family.

#2.  White Dining Table

If you’re a DIY’r this is a project you may have already considered more than once, right?  I have!  Painting your table white or bringing a white table into your dining space gives you endless decorating and redecorating possibilities.  From changing out the table linens to adding a fresh vase of flowers…there’s not much you can’t do with a white table this Spring.

#3.  White Accent Lamps

Another easy to do DIY project.  Start with a white or clear base and a white lamp shade.  Add white ruffle lace or any other white embellishment to give your white accent lamps a custom look for Spring.

#4.  White Coffee Table

I am unintentionally promoting my love of DIY in this post but really…a repurposed door, a pallet, a new white coat of paint on a thrift shop find.  Freshen up your living space and get creative at the same time this Spring!  Besides, a white coffee table looks even better after you’ve stained it up with coffee rings and scuff marks.

#5. White Drapes

Framing your windows with white drapes can make the whole room look larger; that and they filter in the Spring sunlight in such a pretty way!  No matter what colors you having going on now, adding white drapes will instantly make your room feel fresher and ready to welcome in the warmer weather.

#6.  White Flowers

Put them everywhere!  Arrangements around the house lighten the mood and help bring the outdoors inside…there’s nothing that says Spring like flowers!  My favorite…white tulips.  If you haven’t had enough of DIY in this post…try making the flowers yourself!
