For years I have had the main rooms in my house painted a stony white color.
I did get comments from people (you know the ones) that say that they themselves "aren't afraid of color". Insinuating (poorly) that I was a scared little wimp that shivered at the thought of a red wall.
And then I started blogging and I realized that a lot of people out there in blogland also love my wall color. It's like it's popular now to have light gray, creamy white or stony white walls. At least in the decorating circles I visit.
I am stylish and didn't even know it.
But I have a love of vintage pieces that often are brighter colors, e.g., my Vintage Carnival Chalkware post. So I would never be able to do the all white look and keep my favorite vintage finds on display.
Maybe I'll find that my Keds are ultra stylish right now too? What about my mini-van?
So are you embracing lighter colored walls or do you enjoy the bolder colors?
