Consider White or Light Walls….

The smartest thing I did when we moved into this house was to have all my Living Room, Dining Room and Kitchen painted Snowbound {SW 7004} by Sherwin Williams.  Doing this has made decorating so easy and really made our home feel simple and clean!

fanafterI tell people all day long when I work at Total Bliss that “the hardest thing about Chalk Paint® is picking a color!”  I do my very best to assist every customer to ensure that they are picking the best color for what ever item in their home they are painting.  For most, this precious can is a significant investment of time and money.  Who doesn’t want to feel good about how their project looks in your home when they are done??

It seems the biggest factor involved in so many decisions is their current wall color….not to mention the fact that many have a different color in every room of their house!  I’ve been there….I know!!

I do believe that outdated wall colors are crippling us in updating our homes and accessorizing them when deciding to paint furniture for these rooms.

Do you dream of painting your bed a fun bright color like this fabulous turquoise? It is so much more of a wow factor against these white walls! Not to mention all the other colors brought into the room are so much easier and appealing when they are not competing with a dark wall color.

If you really must have a color on a wall…consider painting just one wall like they did in this room.  Imagine if all the walls were painted red in this room….it would just be too much!

Another great thing White Walls do is bring the outside in!

This is my favorite room in our house….our sunroom.  White walls, off white slipcovered furniture and a few pops of color.

My point is …. if you are really struggling with bringing it all together in your home, painting your walls a very light color, and even white can really make a HUGE difference and make things much easier!

CONSIDER IT….Just sayin’!

I’d love to know if any readers have gone to white walls! If so, is it working for you??
