1. Peach Shades

Enjoy the freshness of white in your most personal space with the equally calming shades of peach. Choose lighter tones to have a calming atmosphere in your bedroom with gold or brass accents.

It’s also a great alternative for a baby blue and pink wall color for your nursery or kid’s room that can easily be paired with pastel blue as accents that will surely layer out with your white furniture.

You can also add rattan hampers to add texture and color while staying within the color scheme.

2. Deep Blue

Pairing blue with your white furniture will add depth to your space and allow your furniture to stand out. Although, be aware that it’s a deeper hue and can make a small room look visually smaller.

It is recommended to have the dark color on medium to large rooms with a minimum of 9’ feet ceiling clearance. Blue and white is a great color combination in your office and study area where you need focus and creativity.

Black is a great accent color to the color combo and defines lines and forms with décor. Add patterned pillows and rugs among the colors blue, white, or black to add the perfect finishing touches.

3. Light Blue

Most people may think that this color only works in a coastal or beach house environment, but the truth is that it can still work nicely in any other decor settings.

Light blue can bring an airy and light feeling, and that’s why we love to use this color to paint the walls for any home with open space concepts.

4. Beige

Design is in the details and we can’t agree more. Choose a beige wall that goes cohesively with your light-colored furniture to showcase and emphasize gorgeous details.

The neutral color makes it possible to add busy details without overwhelming the look of your room. This color scheme and detailed interior give a welcoming vibe to large rooms such as living or great rooms.

It is easy on the eyes and you’ll love adding accent colors such as black or gray undertones. You can also go with other textures such as glossy silver trinkets or wicker add-ons.

5. Mellow Yellow

Yellow wall

Like beige, white with light yellow has a smooth transition of color especially if you are aiming for a minimalistic two-color scheme.

Choose the lighter tone for your yellow walls and you’ll see how you can still have a warm interior even with the minimalistic touch.

This cozy combination is great for your kitchen or living room where you want a lively ambiance using white furniture.

6. Brilliant Emerald

Emerald green wall

If you’re tired with the usual beige and brown combos, a shade of green can light up your mood and the great thing is that you can use any shade of green as wall color for your living room with white furniture.

A popular green color that we’ve been seeing in Instagram feeds is the brilliant emerald green. 

The tone brings a range of personalities depending on the lightness or darkness of the shade. The darker-toned emerald green works well with traditional styles such as Mid-Century themes where you’ll love white drapery to match your white furniture and green walls.

Need a quirkier twist? Add muted olive or electric green to have an inspiring personal space.

7. Light Gray

Neutral with neutral may seem boring, but the key is layering texture and patterns to your muted space. Add white tufted furniture with fur throw pillows and pair it with an exciting silver sputnik chandelier.

Light gray walls are great options whether you’re aiming for the classics or minimalist. The timeless combination works great on your living room and other formal areas.

8. Aegean Teal

If you’re zapped out of energy, the fresh color of the sea and coral is the perfect color choice to match up with the heavenly hue.

A blend of blue-green and gray, you’ll find the interesting undertones spark a zest of life but at the same time staying cool and serene.

It is just the perfect wall surround for a restful day or night.
