White Walls

06well-gustafson-slide-BN9R-jumboI'm absolutely obsessed with white paint right now. Obsessed. White and a particular brown-ish white. 

This is an interior from T Magazine. 

For lots and lots of white walls, check out Remodelista. I have their iPad app, which is fabulous.

  1. I’m feeling rather glum after looking at that first place. Didn’t you just buy a mid-century house? You should be looking for a matching set of avocado or mustard kitchen appliances.
    Better yet, baby blue or mamie pink.

  2. Loving the white too – my entire house is painted in Benjamin Moore Cloud White. It’s the perfect backdrop for any style/colour/texture of anything else. Works well with artwork too.

  3. “Not specifically about counter-tops, but I can’t help feeling that this is a “spite post.””
    It was overdue, I think.
    Speaking of white, I really like the Scandinavian design blogs in Susan Serra’s blogroll:

    The Scandinavians do amazing things with white while keeping it warm and friendly.

  4. I don’t like the big round light fixture over the table. It looks like an oversized wasp nest, which gives it an air of menace.

  5. I suspect it is–I’ve seen one before at an estate sale. Not even sure that’s legal. A quick google suggests there may be issues, at least in some locales.
    I’m going to blog Clutter’s Last Stand sometime soon. I know exactly what Don Aslett would say about that dead bird–junk, junk, junk.

  6. Speaking of houses, there’s one that I really ought to see in person, but the problem is that it’s a 1940 house that has been given the stainless and granite treatment in the kitchen (I can almost deal with that), but much less forgivably, they have done up the bathroom in oh so trendy brown and beige patterned tile (possibly travertine). It’s in our price range, it’s a very good location, but I’m having a hard time dealing with the fact that the owners did this to this house and expect to be paid for it. Worst of all, the FSBO ads they have been posting say that more renovations are in the works. Please, somebody, stop them before they kill again!

  7. Incandescent bulbs–tsk, tsk.
    I like the current fad for sparkly chandeliers , too, although I suspect that their presence in a kitchen signals “lots of take-out eaten here.”

  8. Jim the Realtor has a new video up of a house that may be a distant California relative of Laura’s house.
    http://www.bubbleinfo.com/2011/11/18/la-jolla-rambler/
    It was built 1969, it’s a foreclosure priced at $1.8 million and it’s over 4500 sq. ft. The windows, floors and era remind me of Laura’s house. There are a few unfortunate areas in the house on the video, but all in all, I think it’s an interesting example of medium-end finishes used effectively in a house of a very similar era to Laura’s.
