I remember my pre-blogging days when I fulfilled my brain's daily needs for decor and color
by watching the shows on the Home & Garden channel.
I was addicted, even when I allowed myself to feel that my home was somehow
uncool for having white walls. The message was "color, color, color!"
I remember designers even sometimes making fun of homeowners for not feeling the need for color.
Then, and thank goodness for us, we started visiting blogs that featured homes from all over the world.
I discovered my love for French Country and Tuscan styles as well as
(who knew?) Gustavian and Nordic.
I started to see, like many of you, that white walls were not only acceptable
but also beautiful and that they offered a new view on what chic and fresh can be.
They gave me the validation I was secretly looking for.
I find the rooms in this Scandinavian home absolutely inviting,
with an air of elegance that seems to happen naturally.
I love the subtle touches of blue.
Only the walls in this last room are painted blue
(and let me say, what a beautiful shade of blue that is...very Gustavian!)
I adore the wood floors, white or natural. Very lovely, wouldn't you say?
So...for you....in favor of white, not at all, or somewhere in between?
