I've been wanting to paint everything white for quite some time now. I think I've done more posts about "white" than any other topic! I think it all started a couple of years ago when my husband and I started thinking about building. We looked for a lot and started putting together a house plan. Our dear builder was so extremely patient with us as we tried to sell our existing home so that we could get to building. The market just wasn't moving and since we didn't have a short sale, well, we were out of luck. Not many lookers and those that did look wanted short sale prices. So we shelved building a new home. But my dreams of a light, beachy, window-filled home are still floating around in my head.

I love how white unifies everything. You might think any color would do that. Not so much. I mean, an all blue room looks unified, in a way...but there is something about the "non-color" that makes a beautiful, clean palette for the rest of the colors you put in the room. For me, it gives breathing space. I look at these pictures and an unconscious "ahhhhh...." slips out of my mouth.

I so love all white, too. In fact, my white living room needs painting desperately, and I've been trying to think what color I should paint it, and you just helped me make up my mind. White again. I may even cover my love seats in white again, too. Thanks!

I love that Michael Luppino room. I like the crispness that the white creates, but I also the the brown from the floor and other wood in the room.
