White and Neutral Decor
So here’s a dilemma for you. What happens when you’re nearing the finish line of a room makeover and decide hmmm, I think I like something completely and totally opposite? Shhhhh! Don’t tell The Boy! He might have another hernia. But yes, clutch the pearls, this has kinda happened to me. Well, not kinda…it really has happened. I’ve tried to hold it in. Deny it. But it just wants to burst out of me. I love decorating with neutrals! Egats! There, I said it!
While perusing Pinterest I started to notice it…the change. I was pinning spaces with a lot of neutrals…rooms with heavy texture, minimal color. I began to long for pure white walls. Crap, how did this happen?
I mean, there’s no turning back from where I’m at. And don’t get me wrong, I’m very happy with my home’s present state. But I can’t help but think, what would happen if I toned down the color? Would I love it more? Domaine referred to it as “French girl decorating” in one of their posts. Maybe that is the allure since French girls are always so sophisticated. Minimally put together perfectly. And I’m not sure how they do it, but they can make a gray sweatshirt and jeans look like runway material. Simple with feminine touches.
Here are some of the pretty white and neutral living rooms and bedrooms I’ve been pinning recently. Is it just me? What do you think? Meh or hells ya? Would you paint your walls pure white? Have any paint color suggestions?
