Last weekend I did something I have never done before. It was a challenge, and I didn’t think too much about it or I wouldn’t have gone through with it. After years of experience with bold and interesting colors, I did the craziest thing I could think of.
I painted my living room white.
I have to blame it on the heat we’ve been going through lately. Los Angeles doesn’t get real hot; we have maybe four weeks a year of 90 degree weather so on the whole, air conditioning or even fans aren’t really worth it, in my opinion. You have to use all that energy, and then where am I going to store a fan for the other 48 weeks of the year? Truth be told, I’m just really cheap and I hate going to Target. Anyway, the warm caramelly color of my living room was making me feel like I was living in a clay oven, so in a feverish fit I pulled out the white paint I usually reserve for mixing and just did it.
I figure I can always paint it back.
