I do not have one white room in my house...white wood, but no white walls. I like/enjoy color, but there are times when white seems so orderly, clean, organized that I love it/want it/need it. White rooms just beg for someone to give them the 'white-glove' test, which is the crazy part -I want to live in that white-glove clean house - but I hate housework. That is precisely the reason I've never had, nor wanted a white room in my real world. I can't even keep a white t-shirt clean longer than ten minutes before I've rubbed up against something or dribbled salsa or soda on it.
Those who took a tour
of my backyard during Kelly's Korner Show Us Where You Live may have noticed that all of my plantings and flowers are white...with the exception of the pink Crepe Myrtle I planted this year - I'm already second guessing that choice. White gives me such a wonderful sense of calm - it's like stepping out of a smoke-filled room and taking a deep, clean breathe of fresh air. It's the same felling I get when I purchase a new purse and I
carefully place my basic necessities
in the pouches and zippered pockets - a place for everything, everything is in its place. No clutter. I wish I could get/keep my house clean - white-glove, new purse clean. For now I'll just have sit and look at magazines and try to find pictures of clean houses that make me feel calm.
Ok! Now that I've shared that weird
little tidbit, let me share a few of my favorite white rooms with you...courtesy of
I absolutely love these rooms!
Everything looks so clean. I doubt there is a ring around this tub.
Isn't she precious?
