It must be spring …. First I have the urge to de-clutter and now I found myself looking through pictures of white rooms! White floors, white walls, white upholstery, white bathrooms ……. Longing to let in the spring sunshine, to lighten and brighten my home …..
Of course, I don’t have the time or energy to repaint my whole house on a whim, but passing moods like this longing for white, can definitely influence the re-do of a room or two.
My spring project is a bathroom, currently dark walls, I’m wondering if I’m brave enough to go from dark to white.
One thing holding me back is that the room, although not small, is north facing, with little natural light. Someone a long time ago told me very gravely that I should never decorate a dark room in light colours and vice versa …. hmmm….
I wonder if you’d agree with that idea. Have you used lots of white in your home, and if so, have you noticed that it works better in a room with big south facing windows, than in smaller darker parts of the house?
So do let me know what you think …. and if you all tell me it’s a good idea, then I may well just reach for the paintbrush ………
because , after all, what other reasons could possibly stop me ?!! …….
