Painting everything white

Lots of white. Over the past couple of weeks I've painted my way around the house. Kitchen, family room, master bath ceiling, Nicole's room got a major overhaul. I've got a few more rooms to tackle but today it was our powder room.

It's amazing what a change fresh new paint makes. I forgot to take a before picture, but here's the back wall after some repairs and starting to cut in the white. The accessories in the powder room are all the same but the room feels totally different white. I didn't like the old yellow as soon as it hit the walls. There's no natural light and it looked darker then it did in our south facing kitchen that has plenty of windows. It was left over paint so I lived with it for too long. The white is such a fresh and clean change. The yellow was blah, the white ~ We're Loving it. Course, now I really want to change those hideous melamine vanity doors...

I grew up with white walls everywhere. That is until my parents decided to go pastels in their last house. I rebelled by painting my room avocado green.

Now hubby and I have a town home, and we got to visit several in the division when we were looking. All but ours had white walls and barely anything in them. Ours had yellow walls through most of the house and brown in a few others. It was such a refreshing change.

But now that I've lived with yellow for 3 years I think I could handle white again, just not everywhere.

White is such a fresh and clean choice for a bathroom! It's amazing how the color of paint can make a room feel brighter and larger and the same is true for the exterior of a house.

It's fun to see a glimpse into your home decorating ideas :)

I love white walls - they make everything else in the room the focus instead. Love what you've done!

White...so simple and refreshing. I love white walls because pictures just pop right out.

It's funny. You're going white, and I'm going with color. Fresh paint really makes a difference.
