White Country Living Room

Use a variety of white shades to add interest to a festive room.

Subtle pattern and piles of pillows and throws keep an all-white living room from feeling static. In artist Heather Shaw's space, a striped ottoman and floral chair break up the scheme. To keep the look relaxed (and kids at ease) use washable sofa and chair slipcovers. White lights and decorations on the tree add low-key sparkle.
