Before we’d even closed on the house, I went absolutely, 100% viably insane on Pinterest, madcap-pinning literally any interior that caught my eye with zero kind of organization whatsoever. Anything and everything I liked, even a little, got a tiny digital pin stuck in it—really I was trying to distill for myself what I liked and what I wanted our home to look like. (It turns out moving from one room to a house full of rooms is a little, um, daunting.)
Eventually, a direction started to make itself clear and it was easier to curate a more specific aesthetic, but that aesthetic still comes from an eclectic mix—from the traditional to the mid-century to the beach-shack-y.
The one thing that holds that mix together, though? White walls. I know I know I know it’s super trendy right now (Benjamin Moore even named white their color of the year…), but the saving grace is that, unlike bright orange accent walls, or graphic, painted chevrons, it’s also timeless. Trends may turn back toward color and pattern in the future (why tho?), but white will still—and always—feel classic. And fresh and clean and bright.
…See what I mean?
