Not Sure About the All-White Trend? This Room Will Change Your Mind

At first thought, an all-white room might not seem very compelling. But with a thoughtful arrangement, monochrome can be as chic as designs come. This peaceful boudoir by stylist Amy Kim is a perfect example, where an unabashed use of the blank slate shade is seen on everything from the walls, to the bedspread, to the picture frames. What gives this room weight despite its airiness is its simple yet pleasing top-to-bottom symmetry. Balancing dual artwork and light fixtures above the bed — which is perfectly topped with a contrasting pillow and a textural throw — gives the eye something to focus on amid all the cohesion.

If you're looking to try this trend, a pair of matching lamps like these is a great place to start:
