White Wednesday

Today while exploring blog-land, I landed upon this fun little inspirational "party". Every Wednesday, participants post decorating ideas using white (including silver, clear, cream and natural). This is such a pretty, calming, homey and vintage color to incorporate into your decorating. I am not a "use only the white family" kind of girl. I like to use it to, instead, make my other colors pop. Years ago when I was in school, I was taught to choose three main colors to use when docorating a room. Use the three colors in a pint, quart and gallon manner. In other words, choose one of the three colors to be your main color... the second color will be used less than the main and the third color is left to be your accent color. I used to be a pint of white for me, please! Now I find myself upping the dose to a quart or even more! However you use it, check out all the ideas each Wednesday at the Faded Charm Cottage, grab a sidebar button to spread the word and check out the many blogs that link up each Wednesday. Here's the collection of white that makes giddy. Won't you join us?
