I'm redesigning my room, and I want it to be white. Everything white. Would that be a good idea? I like the modern looks where everything is clean and orderly and how there is one main colour coming from a notebook or computer like blue. And then there would be a glass coffee table in the middle? Has anyone tried this? I was thinking if I get annoyed of all that white, I could switch it easily, i.e. get different sheets, curtains, etc. so that only the walls would be white and change styles easily.

hmm, if you want something revolutionary, try this, paint all white, make 2 layers of curtain which 1 layer enables light (with different color) to enter while another don't. in the middle, a nice white marble coffee table. when the sun shines inside, the color of your curtain will determine your room's color.

Well, a white room would be really a great one. It would be very easy to decorate your room since any color would be great against a white background. You could easily decide on a color theme for your room. Like if you want most things red, blue or yellow or any color of your choice. Get a coffee table with a basic color that could match all the other things in the room.

Spidy 2222- Love the idea! So I can pull the curtain aside if I want that colour that day, or no colour at all.

Ruby Baccat- I was thinking maybe a glass coffetable?

The curtain idea is really good. I think the room could be really nice looking but the only thing that would make me hesitate from going this route would just be the maintenance and ease of marking up or accidentally staining any of the white furniture/walls, etc.. I guess if you found that happening however you could always change the colour really easily.

R Mc- I was thinking about that. Grey would be too sad, and any other colour would ruin the modern style. (Modern, not sharp) So maybe I'll just paint over it with white or put one of those 'peel-off, removable stickers' on. :)

I seriously laughed when I read that! I meant the stickers, not wallpapers. :D You know when white gets scratched or something, there's a mark? I might be able to just put one of those removable stickers on... not wallpapers. :)

Modern to means simple and straight-line design with a zen-like feel. Keep clutter to a minimal to give your room of spaciousness

We do a lot of modern stuff: our own home is done in white, black and a deep grey (purple undertones so that it is warm/cozy). We have a large white leather couch in our living room, and with 3 small children, I can tell you that white is much more forgiving for messes than you think. It's like having a black appliance after you've had white. The black ALWAYS shows the dust, where the eye doesn't pick up on varying shades of white as easily.

Having said that, we would also happily live in a white house (with wood floors for contrast) anyday. Just throw a different color pillow on the couch for whatever mood you're in, and it will change the feel of everything!
