What I'm Craving


both images found ::here::

I have been thinking a lot about how I want our home to look. We have a ton of painting to do, scraping of ceilings, new lighting, and other projects. I am ready for a fresh start. A crisp clean pallet to work from. As much as I love color I feel the need for clean nice white walls in all the main living spaces. I like the idea of adding color with art & furniture. In the bedrooms I'd like to keep it light too. I'm ready for this change. What are your thoughts? Is white too stark or a nice clean pallet to work with?

Summie- I LOVE the idea of white walls and hanging art for color. I always cave in and paint my walls, though. Since you are so artistic you should have no trouble filling your walls with color.!:) Try it out and see what you think. I want to see pictures!:) Lori

I love the idea of adding color with accessories...it's what I do also. Nice neutral walls...it opens up spaces and gives you clean lines. You know what to do...good luck getting it done!!!

i have always been a color girl, but lately have been feeling this very thing! we painted a neutral "tan" in the LR and hallways because i felt it would go with everything and thought white seemed to stark. now i am wishing we had gone with a white or cream as it would feel so much lighter and fresher, i think.

go for it!

I think white walls make for a fresh look as long as the colors you pull in are BOLD. It makes everything nice and cheery, and then if you feel like a change, you can change out the accessories, which is much easier than painting!

Hi Summer,

I too have been craving the white wall look. I'm slowly converting my rooms to white walls. I really like the freshness of that look. I think you should go for it!

I love the look that you are after, although I would not do it for myself. I don't have one single white wall in my house. Oh, maybe one, lol! I like color, lots of color. Gotta go for it Summer!! Make it what you love!
