In Defense of White Walls

 

Whew... I'm wiped out! I've been in the middle of a painting frenzy lately and slowly our house is turning white (err... "Bohemian Lace"... how fitting). There's something so calming and crisp about white walls and I love that they make the perfect blank slate for interesting accents and layered textures. Initially, when we first rented our new house, it was a drab shade of "renters beige". Even though painting is forbidden in our lease (please don't hate me landlady, I promise it'll be so much more open and we'll paint it back to beige when we leave), I knew I'd have to give the walls a couple of coats of fresh white to even begin to feel settled into our space. Here's to white walls and making them our own!
