If I ever feel the urge to lose myself in hours of mindless fun, I turn to my dangerous duo: Google and Pinterest. And when I really feel like pushing myself over the edge? I throw two of my favorite words into the Google Images search engine: White Rooms. Holy moly. Wake me up when supper is ready, because I’ll be dreaming in shades of white.
Those of you who’ve had the chance romp around my construction site, either in person or on LTHL, will clearly notice that not a single white room exists in my house. Some 5 years ago when I had my very first house fresh out of college, I gave a white room a whirl…and it was dreadful. Painfully plain. Ridiculously sterile.
Now older, wiser and a bit more knowledgeable in the world of home decor, my mind is already in overdrive thinking of all the fun I could have with a white room, take 2…in my next house. I’m not moving quite yet, but when I do, rest assured inspiration will be pulled from my arsenal of white room obsessions.
Note: While I do love the look, I have a very hard time coping with painted hardwoods. Unless they are stained beyond repair and simply refinishing wouldn’t do much good, I couldn’t bring myself to touch such pretty planks with a paintbrush. Am I alone on this?
