Why does painting with white walls scare me so (and have me so intrigued)? It looks so dang good everytime I see it! Like here for instance... and that striped rug! And those candlesticks! Color looks so great when backed with white. Which is precisely how I feel about food. Food never looks better then when it's on a white plate. But, I gotta say, I don't carry that philosophy into my home. We've got a lot of color happenin' here. My next house? WHITE. White, I tell you! Anyway, enjoy.
