White Done Right (take two)

I can't quite get enough of rooms painted white that are jaw-dropping gorgeous. White walls just seem so much like something you have to deal with when you're a renter. They're a hassle, something you want to fix. But these spaces, with their unique design and eye-catching accents, wow the viewer as much as a dramatic room painted in lacquer navy or sunshine yellow. Look how much a hot pink rug or dazzling brass shower nozzle can glam up a white bathroom. Or how dark, rustic woods highlight the whites even more. I have a feeling you'll be seeing more and more "White Done Right" posts as this is quickly becoming one of my favorite looks in interiors.

  10. I love white walls with pops of fun colors throughout the room--turquoise, pink, yellow... We just painted our apartment a bone white, which looks like a creamy white on our walls. Absolutely gorgeous. I look forward to posting pics on my own blog soon!
