At first glance, white does not seem like a spring color. It seems to belong to spring’s predecessor, no question.
But white really is the color of spring cleaning. I’ve come to realize in recent years that, for the home, I do not like beige – I like the crisp, clean modernity of white. It’s hard to do well, to not it feel crisp but not icy – but it’s the perfect neutral. Maybe this has something to do with my Scandinavian design bent, or maybe it’s because I’ve lived in a series of houses with (yellowy, dingy) beige walls, carpets, floors, cabinets, everything. I want a fresh start! I want clean! I want to throw open the windows and let the sun shine in – on white walls! Or, at the very least, white trim! (can’t set the rental standard too high…more on that one of these days)
So here we are: a collection of mostly entirely house-centric white dominant photos. Because it’s time to lighten things up around here.
So…what did you think of Spring Colors Week? I had fun walking down Flickr favorite memory lane and finding a few new favorites, too.
Any spring cleaning or other seasonal fun on the weekend agenda?
