i find myself being drawn to white spaces. everywhere i look i am seeing them and appreciating the clean simple lines. the lack of visual distraction. yet at the same time letting key pieces of furniture or accessories pop. to say that i am just appreciating and not envying would be a total lie.
so obviously i bought a gallon of pure white paint today and attacked my dining room. i’m not afraid to paint. and surprisingly (because i am sooooo critical of myself and my design choices!) have rarely regretted painting.
but with one coat up in the dining room….i am second guessing. first because there is no logical place to stop the white…meaning i might have to paint the dining room, kitchen, living room…and hall. so, the WHOLE HOUSE!. what was i thinking? and second, i think that while the white will brighten up the rooms and it’s sure better than the tan that i’ve been starting at for the last 6 years…but it might make me hate the color of my cabinets (maple) and BLACK appliances.
errrr….what was i thinking?!?!
thankfully greg has withheld judgment and critical comments.
in case you are wondering where i am for the next few weeks….i’m painting my entire house and possibly my appliances several colors until find the right one.
