{Day 21: White Room}

White walls, white drapes. It's the look I think I want for our living room once the new sectional arrives.

There's still plenty of color in this room from the furniture and accessories. I like the contrast of the thin black picture frames against the wall & with the wide white matte inside, as well as the dark floor lamp. The medium tones are represented nicely by the window shade, basket on the chair, and small chest.

But which white to choose? It's tricky to get a white that's not too yellow and yet not too cold. This room, with white walls & white drapes is painted Swiss Coffee.

I think painting the walls white will help keep the visual noise down when all the kids' colorful toys are pulled out. It will also help us to appreciate the beauty of nature just outside our windows. 

However, the open concept is going to pose some challenges for actually putting paint on the walls. High ceilings and several different zones: entry, living room, kitchen, dining area, stairwell to lower level kind of makes the color we have look better and better. If only I knew what it was called...

Do you have a favorite white paint? What is it called and who makes it? Please let me know in the comments.
