The other color we're thinking about is more the of absence of color. That's right, we're itching to go white. There are so many reasons to take the plunge. It makes the space brighter, it's incredibly modern and chic, and it's the ultimate neutral.

Our space is pretty new construction, and while it has some built-in character with tile mosaics in the kitchen and bathrooms, it could use a little more zing. That's especially true when you consider that we live in such a historic city.
I'm channeling one of these old-world flats for inspiration. We may not be able to put in herringbone floors, but we can have white molding on white walls.
