There's something about white walls that puts me completely at ease. It gives the eye a place to rest, but also energizes the space by reflecting light. it's by far one of my favorite (lack thereof) colors, especially as we approach the chillier months here on the East Coast. Scandinavians have been onto this trend for awhile, and for good reason.
WHITE WALLS HAVE THE ABILITY TO CREATE AN AIRY MOOD IN ANY ROOM. THERE'S SOMETHING ABOUT THE LACK OF COLOR THAT ALLOWS THE MIND TO RELAX AND APPRECIATE THE MINUTE DETAILS IN A SPACE. A TOUCH OF BLACK CAN BRING CONTRAST AND INTEREST WHILE ESSENTIALLY TONING THE WHITE. (IMAGE CREDIT TO MODERN FINDINGS)
