There has been *some* perplexity about our decision to do white walls in the new house, which I totally understand. For years I would have felt the exact same way, like what a waste of color opportunity! But here's the thing. It's true what "they" say: white really is a great backdrop for color. Check out these rooms, pulled from my inspiration folder (and from various uncredited sources, sorry!). All have white walls, but none are lacking in the color department. Enjoy!
Some great rooms here, no?
