Hello there! Thanks for popping over today to share in my latest obsession, my love of a white painted cottage. Give me light, bright and airy! Give me white! It’s not really a new obsession I suppose, but it’s one I try to put out of my mind for the fear I might actually take things to the next step and get out the paint brush. Ever since I painted the sun porch white, I’ve been completely over the moon happy with it and a little fixated on white spaces in general! I keep thinking about painting more rooms white. The funny thing about white is that it makes whatever color you put with it more colorful. The blues look bluer and the greens just greener, clearer! Love that! This is starting to sound like a laundry detergent commercial. Grin!
So today I’m sharing some new and old photos of the cottage doused in white. I cropped out those darker taupe walls and focused on showcasing the soft light moments of white. It’s a white painted cottage illusion I guess.

Sometimes I wish this is what it looked like in real life, but if you visit the cottage tour page you’ll see it’s a little, a lot, different. Lots of darker taupe walls and kitchen cupboards. We shall see.
