Until We Meet Again

Though I'm personally parting from the look with my new home, I'll never get tired of looking at crisp white walls, deep warm woods, and accent colors that come from pillows and pictures alone. It's a classic formula, but it's one that will always be my fave.



In an attempt to stretch my own design aesthetic and challenge my sensibility, I've decided to live on the edge and paint my new walls dark gray. But as I thumb throw images like these this morning, a little string tugs at my reluctant heart. White, until we meet again...

I also have a crush on white walls. Can't imagine living without them now that I bathed the whole house in crisp white paint. Ooo, but I love seeing colourful walls in other homes :)

I applaud your moxie! Feel free to stop by my hood for your weekly dose of white. I'm afraid I won't be cutting ties anytime soon. Sigh.

Dark grey wall sound so romantic! Good luck! Hope to see photos of your finished product.

Rebecca, you will absolutely see pics of the new place once it's done! Perhaps in a little mag called Rue ;)

AGree on both counts - a classic look that I definitely can appreciate but not what I live with!

The good thing about paint is it's easy and relatively inexpensive to change. I can't wait to see the new look...certain it will be fabulous!!
