I have a love-hate relationship with the color white. Is it even a color? For so long, I thought of it as THE ABSENCE OF COLOR, and a complete lack of personality when it comes to design. However lately, I’ve been finding an appreciation for white and the way it can really ground a room and give it crisp clean lines. And in fact, the white parts of my house actually bring out the colored pieces, more so than if everything in the room was brightly colored.
I’m the kinda girl that’s more likely do decorate in color… and accent in white!
So lately I’ve been noticing things in my house that I used to really like, but I’m bored with them. Here are some examples:
Using some white spray paint leftover from another project, we’ve given these random items a fresh clean coat of matte white! It doesn’t get any easier that that!
And I’m loving my new-found appreciation for this extremely neutral ‘color.’ It’s so crisp, clean and modern!
I’m diggin the white too lately. Bought myself some white spraypaint when I was home visiting Waverly, since you can’t legally buy it in Chicago city limits. We’ll see where it takes me!
I am the same as you with getting bored with things in the house. I have NSS (never satisfied syndrom) I love stuff for awhile then get bored. It totally helps to change the color or move things around. Love your blog.
