White Walls

I’ve never been a fan of white walls, they always seem institutional and cold to me.  Plus super easy to get dirty, especially with two bouncing boys around.  Nope, white walls have never been my cup of tea.

Until now.

Now these white walls are something else, something a bit special.  These white walls are a canvas on which our family will paint our lives.  We will colour them, hang pictures on them, live between them.  The layers of plaster that I have watched go on, each one bringing our house a little closer to completion, have given me a whole new appreciation of what it is to build a house, to make a home.  Watching rough boards become sharp edges, understanding how much work and effort it takes to create an oh-so-simple white wall.

I don’t think I’ll ever be able to take these walls for granted, whatever colour they are.

    I love a white wall. That being said, I don’t have many in my house – just the office and the craft room. Oh the things you can do with a white wall!

      Unfortunately in our house white walls only serve as places for child related smeg to collect, at least a painted colour hides it a bit! But I am thinking muted shades, relaxing on the eye. Colour post coming up I think!
