White Is Too A Color.

I am constantly obsessing about white. I try to break free, add color and still I come back to white. If you follow this blog regularly, you'll know I adore my Room & Board white, snuggle-up-and-read-all-day, Modern sofa (it's now called the Metro, but I believe it's the same comfy sofa!). I love the fact that it's all slip covered, and I can just toss 'em in the wash and it pops out looking brand new! I like a white base for most of my major pieces of furniture, too, because I can dress them up, and change up the rooms as often as I like, and accessorizing the white pieces offers the rooms a whole new look. I can dress up the Modern with some of these fun Amy Butler pillows, or maybe this one from UK-based Not On The High Street. But, still the room will be very white and very fresh.

Here's some more white on white inspiration. See, it is too a color.

I love white. All my walls are white. I try and try to add some color, but I never quite make it. I blogged about color this morning as my obsession with Black and White has gotten out of control.

I love my white slipcovered sofa and armchair too! And I have a 1 y/o daughter and a dog. People say I'm crazy for having the white. But I always tell them that's what bleach is for!
