Making White Stand Out, Shabby Chic Design Can Be Color Too!

The conversation comes up so much with many of my friends and acquaintances, "Interior Wall Color" and so many end up just settling with white. I could never understand when I watch many episodes of House Hunters on HGTV why so many actually make a decision based on the color of the walls, it's just paint. In our minds it seems so permanent but you can completely change a room with a few hours of painting and instead of making that shabby design pop with bits of color through accessories, why not make the white stand out with wall color that will make everybody rave.....
The wonderful thing about paint, and we all know this, if you don't like it change it. I have learned over the years to take risks on color and I may not even like the color but once it's on the wall 95% of the time I love it. It's so hard for us to think of going bold, why, because bold isn't beautiful, isn't romantic, isn't the norm of the Shabby Chic Design.....take a look at some of these beautiful rooms that I'm sure will be getting pinned, and it's not because they are not appealing to the eyes....
It shouldn't be difficult to go for it and paint over those white walls, but the most difficult part is there are so many colors. Get me in a paint store and I can spend hours looking at color, I love color and of course it's always easier to pick colors for everybody else so don't get me wrong it's sometimes still difficult for me to pick just one. Color brings much more happiness, warmth, and romance into a home, and it doesn't matter if it's bold or light, it's color......and it's just paint.
