The recently redecorated living space defines a new direction for the first floor of Raymond's and Jennifer's home. Although Jennifer has always redesigned the look of their rooms every 4-5 years, this time around comes with a different perspective. "Now that [the kids] are all moved out and it is just my husband and I, I finally have had the ability to have fun with the house," Jennifer explains. "I have always redecorated every couple years, but this time has been my favorite. I can finally get rid of the clutter and stuff and find chic, fun pieces I know won't get a ball thrown through them."

White works for minimalists and maximalists. Clean, crisp white is a go-to color for minimalists, for obvious reasons, but it can work just as well for those who prefer a warm, cozy, collected style. A coat of white paint on the walls gives the eye a place to rest when there are multiple layers of accessories and textiles, making the overall vibe of the space feel fresh rather than cluttered. - edith_winters
