My love White on White decor

My love of the white on white theme first evolved when I purchased my first home. Being a relatively small apartment in the the Adelaide CBD the decor was neutral with brilliant white walls, blinds and kitchen. I immediately decorated within my almost non-existent budget with a can of white paint and a tin of Dulux Whisper White. I painted all my photo frames, side tables, you name it – if it could be painted, I painted it white. It was so serene and peaceful, the perfect retreat from my demanding job at the time. As soon as I would walk through the door of number 43, I was calm and at ease.

My white colour scheme was skewed after Nick and I married, we bought my parents home, after mum and dad had purchased a new home by the beach. We jumped a the chance of having more space and an extensively renovated home, Dad has a similar love for cream as I have for white. I now live in a home that is cream, the carpet is cream (nightmare!), the bespoke living room cabinets are cream (fortunately a milky cream), the walls are cream (a very 90s yellow sponged cream). And as I am sure I don’t need to tell lovers of white, cream is a poor excuse for white!

A favourite blog is The Design Files, by Melbourne blogger Lucy Feagins. Lucy featured the new White by Kikki K store in her blog. My two loves together in one store. Design inspiration aplenty, clean fresh lines, just the motivation I need for our Summer painting – lovely! Finally after two and a half years I have made plans to reduce the cream, and inject some much needed white, well buttery white so it goes with the kitchen cabinets. This is much to Nick’s horror, as we will be getting out the paint brushes ourselves. Check out the lush White by Kikki K for your self.
