It’s always fun to witness the roll out of the official color for the following year, but next year’s color is in a league of it’s very own! With “Simply White” named as Benjamin Moore’s 2016 Color of the Year, we’re eager to share a few designer tips for applying this dreamy color to your everyday lives and spaces!

Tip #1: Layer, layer, layer! White looks great as you continue to mix and layer. Don’t be afraid to mix shapes and textures, to keep your room from looking too “one note”.

Tip #2: Accent! Creating a “White Wonderland” room might not be the most realistic decision if you have kids and a dog running around, but white makes a great accent against playful wallpapers or darkly painted walls (think – chalkboard walls and wallpapered entryways!)

Tip #3: Keep it clean! Choose carefully the pieces you’re signing up to keep clean in your home. Side tables, wall accents and occasional chairs are less maintenance than area rugs and sofas, so choose wisely!

A few of our favorite white pieces here in the office, below. What are your faves?
