8. White lights:
Have you ever thought about decorating with little white lights? Installed around a mirror or in a bed sky, they create a superb effect. You can also put them on the wall of a room by forming a word.

9. Color bands:
To add color to a room, especially if it is completely white, paint horizontal or vertical stripes on walls or doors. Opt for a color matching the decor, accessories, etc.
