I’ve been swooning over white room palettes on Pinterest lately.
They’re just so clean and crisp. . .and they seem so bright and cheery.
And yet every time I convince myself that I want a room to be white. . . I can’t ever quite follow through.
And yet, I want to love white too.
We had a white couch which caused me to immediately paint my living room because I couldn’t stand the neutral-ness of a white couch and tan wall. And then we sold that couch less than a year later, I just couldn’t hack it.
The Nester wrote a great post on going white slowly in their previous home and it worked wonderfully, but I’m still nervous.
Our kitchen is quasi white but again, the thought of painting my walls white is not appealing.
I also often think, ‘If only I had hardwood/laminate flooring, then I would be happy with going white.’ This could be true, as in I’m over compensating with color on the walls so as to draw your eye away from our hideous flooring but I don’t know that new flooring will cause a complete change of heart.
What do you think? Is there a trend that you love but just aren’t sure that you’ll love it in your home?
Have you ‘gone white’ and loved it? Hated it?
