White is the go to color when it comes to home interior design; however, as many homeowners know, an all white bathroom can quickly become boring.

First and foremost, you are going to need to take the color of your walls into account. Even in an all white bathroom, the walls do not have to be painted a stark white color. The color white is actually available in a number of different hues, from frost to cream. You might wish to consider painting the ceiling the same shade as the walls to create the cozy feeling of being in a “cocoon”. Likewise, you can use a Venetian plaster treatment on the walls of your bathroom to create an element of visual interest.

Well chosen, soft furnishings are going to be a necessity for your all white bathroom.

You could even look for rugs that are constructed from woven bamboo to introduce more texture into your bathroom.
