Did you hear that Benjamin Moore recently named their color of the year? And, it’s white. Simply White. When I think about how my own attitude toward white walls has changed over the last ten years, I’d say the choice is definitely on trend.
I used to feel like a room wasn’t finished if it still had white walls. I painted our first two houses tan everywhere and then took a leap and changed to gray in our last house. But, I already have four gallons of white paint sitting in my garage, waiting to go on the walls in our current home. I’ve learned that white doesn’t have to feel stark or unfinished. It can actually feel really warm, when you pair it with the right accessories. It also lets the little bit of color you might use elsewhere in the room really shine.
What do you think of the “color of the year”? Have you warmed up to white yet?
