In Creole, we call white Salisant.. like something that gets dirty easily. Well, it does not always have to be that way.
White can be beautiful, it represents cleanliness, tranquility, elegance, purity, refresh, renew and all that good stuff. White can be sexy too! I want to celebrate white because I feel like many people are afraid to use it in their space. Don't be afraid. Go for it!
You can take baby steps to white, you don't have to go in deep and paint everything white and get everything white initially. Start small within your comfort and then, little by little stretch yourself and step out your comfort zone with a white accessory here and there. P.S. If you are a D.I.Y kind of person then painting an entire room white is easy cause no one will see your mistakes and it will still look good. Be careful though, there are so many shades of white paint be sure to get something that suits you.
