OBSESSED | the perfect backdrop

Hi there - 

After scrolling through a few of my Pinterest boards, I have come to the conclusion that I love white walls. Almost every room on my "aesthetic" board has white walls. Kitchens have white walls, living rooms, bedrooms, bathrooms - all rooms have white walls. Why white walls? Well, they create the perfect backdrop for any piece of furniture, any piece of art, and any style. White walls are great in ultra contemporary spaces, cozy traditional spaces, and everything in between. 

White doesn't have to be cold and stark. It can be warm and cozy. 

What better way to show off unique furniture and art then with a white backdrop? 

White works for masculine or feminine spaces 

This restaurant designed by Kellly Werstler perfectly illustrates how 
white walls are a great backdrop for any space. 

White cabinets + white backsplash + white ceiling + white dishes = clean, fresh, and beautiful 

But, wait! Before you start painting every room in your house a blinding bright white. The trick is to choose a soft off-white. 

Some of JMI's favorite Benjamin Moore whites:

Maritime White  

China White 

Remember, paint is the most cost effective way to give your house a makeover. Now start painting! 

Until next time,
