I’ve been taking a lot of design notes lately for the new house – ideas for the kids rooms, the master bedroom, furniture placement, kitchen design, light fixtures, and on and on… Needless to say I’ve been flipping through a lot of magazines and logging too many hours on my Houzz app. When taking a look at my favourite pictures, I’ve noticed there’s a LOT of white.

All white interiors can take my breath away. I immediately grab my husband and throw the magazine at him, or text him the pic if he’s not home. He usually shakes his head or doesn’t respond. Men. And it’s not because he’s not into design, I think he’s better at it than I am, but he doesn’t think we could handle an all-white room.
Will it stay clean? Will it feel cold and lifeless? Will I be bored in it? Will I freak out everytime some child’s grubby little hands touch my white sofa? Will I hide all the markers and crayons? *le sigh* I suppose it’s not the most practical choice for a family with kids. But it looks lovely, doesn’t it?
