This is where I get to say anything I feel like saying and you get to agree with me.

How to Cope .. When there is no Chocolate

A Whiter shade of Pale


Could you live in a home where the main color ... of Everything ... is white?
After this photo was taken, the pillow was removed .. there is Nothing on the coffee table now.
Would you be able to only live with 4 dishes and no stove or oven? Only a microwave and George Forman Grill?
I like the idea, I like the clean look but after maybe a week, I think colors would just naturally creep in .. don't you? Who wants to live in a petrie dish ? Who wants to have to remember Not to get it in color !! only White !
This article in the New York Times spoke in an admiring way of how this woman lives.
I think she lives in a cold and empty environment and spends more time making sure everything is white than she does in just enjoying having a nice home.
Maybe I am just reminded of hospital rooms and laboratories .. I like my warm yellow walls and my splashes of red toile and the Oriental rug that has all those warm and alive colors. I like my Pup, he comes in Brown.
This person even has a white dog.
I think that says it all.
What do you think?

Thank you to the New York Times for my morning inspiration !

I couldn't live like that. Maybe one night in a hotel with all white would work, but I love color! And even if I didn't...six dogs make all white a no go.
