If there is one color that is under-rated in the modern home when it comes to décor and accessories, it is white. As much as we use the color extensively to shape the backdrop of our homes, when it comes to furniture, white takes a backseat almost instantly. There are plenty of reasons for it. For starters, you with most modern residences featuring white walls, many believe that using décor in white only increases a sense of monotony and make things a touch too boring. Then there is the feeling among many of us that white décor requires far too much effort in terms of care and maintenance. But for those willing to look beyond these reasons, white is a choice that is both stylish and currently trendy.
