mid-week inspiration: fresh white paint

Is there anything better than a fresh coat of white paint? I've been helping with a project where we decided to paint everything a beautiful benjamin moore white. The effect was unbelievable. The home's character instantly changed! Everything felt simple, clean, and new.  White paint has that magic, doesn't it? It still amazes me how much it can change things. Generally speaking, favorite whites are Swiss Coffee, Ancestral, White Chocolate, and White Dove. But you never know how different whites will act in different spaces/lights. So remember- sample, sample, sample and then repeat!   Tomorrow, we will look at some beautiful examples of white walls and how they provide a beautiful canvas to decorate off of. But for today, lets go outside! Enjoy these beautiful white homes. The best ones, in my opinion, are painted with a white with some depth (you don't want it too stark!). I also like when the trim is painted darker gray,black, brown or in a limestone/cream color. Remember just because its white doesn't mean it has to be plain!
