If someone came to me a few years or even months ago and said “hey, you know what? Your house would look great with beautiful white walls!” I would probably respond :noooooo, thank you. No white. It reminds me of hospitals”. But never say never, right? I said yes to white walls this year!
I must admit that looking at some many beautiful houses with white walls is the main reason i changed my mind! So fresh and beautiful homes! With one very simple thing in common : white walls!
The second thing that helped me change my mind is that , unfortunately color companies over here do not have paint color samples to test the color on the wall before painting. Yes, the color might look great on the paper , but how it looks on the wall is a completely different story! I learned that the hard way!
And last , but not least, finding the perfect shade is not an easy thing! The easiest thing was to get myself a pure white color and start painting! I painted the bedroom, hallway and living-dining-kitchen area (yes, it’s one space for all of these).
What amazed me the most was how everything just popped up! Spectacular if you ask me! I guess a decorator or architect would not get so excited though! Our wall decor and furniture seem a bit different, they look more vivid. I think that is the word!
And, yes ofcourse our home is much brighter now! And you know what else? Our little guy is very careful with the walls, maybe because he helped me paint the house and he enjoys all of his hard work now! Except when he gets his crayons and tries to add his signature on his work! We love our gallery wall even more now!
