White or Bright

We're in desperate need of some new bedroom furniture, the dresser and desk I've had since college just aren't cutting it anymore. Rather than go the Ikea route, I'd like to find some vintage pieces that could use a good coat of paint. The only question is what color?

White:

High St. Market


Or Bright:

What do you think?

P.S I should add that the walls are neutral and the bedding Matouk's classic Newport.

  1. Oh how fun! Of course I want to say bright, but how large is your room? Would white make it look bigger? Either way, LOVE the idea of giving a new paint job to some good quality furniture! :) Hope your week is off to a great start Lindsay! xoxo

  2. I love the bright white paint... I just bought some nightstands from a flea market and am thinking about giving them a face lift with some dark gray paint -- also neutral, but a little more punch!

  5. I love both the look of white AND bright furniture, but lately I have been more enamored with a bright punch of color in a piece. I would go with a nice Tiffany blue/aqua-ish color. It is pretty and fun without being too loud. A timeless touch! Good luck! XOXO...

  8. While I'm normally a dedicated white activist - I'm going to go with go BRIGHT! You use so much color in your posts - it seems so much more fitting to go bright! : )

  9. Hi Lindsay, adoring your blog =)
    I think either could work wonderfully, but for a neutral wall and lovely white linens, a bright colour could give it such a great pop for your bedroom =) Megan
