As we eagerly await the 25cm of snow forecast for tomorrow (yes!), I'm thinking about all things white. Our house is painted in shades such as Old White and Cornforth White, neither of which are actually white. The living room (Old White) is greenish, and feels sludgy and dark as it only gets late afternoon/evening sun.
So, the time has come to paint it all white. Real white. Snow white. Like this beautiful house pictured above. Have you ever seen anything more beautiful? I love that the starkness of the white walls and floors is softened with the beaten up furniture, the tones and textures of marble, all those colourful pictures and textiles, and well-chosen lighting. Full of life. Perfect.
