The houses on blogs and Instagram that are stark white with neutral tones are gorgeous. They feel so light and clean and sophisticated. Like grownups live there.
But every time I go try to purposefully reproduce that look, I instead end up purchasing things like this from Urban Outfitters (with free shipping):
And then after I complete the purchase, I say "oh, shoot, I was going for the white-on-white look!" If you check out my Pinterest boards, you will see that I do in fact love color. I need to remember that.
