Guest Picks: 20 Bright White Accessories for Your Home
Look to crisp white for decorative accessories that add a sophisticated punctuation mark to a room
Emily A. Clark
Everyone is always talking about adding a "pop of color" to brighten the room, but white as an accent color is often overlooked and can be a great way to brighten a space. Paired with neutrals, white adds a fresh touch. Paired with dark furniture or walls, white accessories can make a bold statement. Here are 20 of my favorite bright white accessories for your home. — Emily from Emily A. Clark
White Lacquer Trellis Mirror - $560
The detail of this mirror would make it the perfect centerpiece in a foyer or over a powder room sink. I envision this against a dark wall.
Oval Ring Drum Shade Pendant, White - $399
I love the open, airy feel of this drum pendant. It's a showstopper without being too overbearing.
White & Silver Metallic Cow Hide - $489
A white cowhide mixed with a little silver adds instant cool to any space. I love the look of this layered over a natural area rug in a bedroom or cozy living room.
Jonathan Adler Charade Flower Frame - $58
Sweet little frames like this one are perfect for bedside tables or desks.
Relax Pillow Cover, White Cotton by Uptown Girl Embroidery - $45
White pillows don't have to be boring. I love a sofa filled with fluffy white pillows, and this one gives us all a good reminder to take time to enjoy the day.
Raylene Transitional Table Lamp - $133.20
A classic white lamp (or a pair of them) is a great addition to any room. I love the shape and size of this one for bedside tables.
Lady Slipper With Pot, White - $49.95
If you're not sure how to work white into your decor, a potted orchid is a good place to start. You don't need a green thumb for this one, and they look great on a coffee table, entry console, bathroom counter, etc.
Trento Canisters, White - $59.95
A pair of these modern canisters look great on bookshelves or mantels as decorative finials. They add a pop of white and height at the same time.
Ceramic Matters Thorn Vases - $79
These ceramic vases were inspired by the root ball and stem of a rose and are a modern take on a traditional style.
Bridge Architecture and Landscape Prints - $399
This neutral artwork in large white mattes and frames is an easy way to lighten up your space. White mattes pop against darker walls, especially when hung in groups.
Go-Cart White Rolling Table - $129
This little end table/cart is multifunctional and has a fun, industrial vibe. It would work great as a bedside or accent table, stacked with books.
My Lucky Four-Leaf Mirror, White - $69
This cute mirror is the perfect (small) size to hang in a group of three over a bed. Or I might use to create a larger statement over a console table.
Porcelain Labrador - $28
Here's a fun friend to accessorize — and add a pop of glossy white to — your bookshelves.
Faience Pedestal Bowl - $14
These simple little pedestal bowls are great for using around the house: on a coffee table, for jewelry, to hold keys, etc.
Retro-classic White Accent Chairs - $194.99
A classic pair of sleek, white, retro-style chairs at a great price add a modern touch to any room.

Scalloped cake plates look great displayed on open shelving in a kitchen or on bookshelves. These come in various sizes for easy stacking.
White & Silver Tray - $29.95
A simple white tray with pretty detailing is a perfect, stylish way to hold odds and ends on your coffee table.
Beaufort White Small Ginger Jar - $60
Ginger jars are the classic accessory, especially in white. I would use a pair on a mantel or dining table.
Urchin, White - $50
This pretty set of white urchins would add a whimsical touch sitting atop a stack of books or on shelves. Or fill a glass container with them for a pretty display.
