What a great concept!
I'm guilty of forgetting that white can work as a pop, and these examples really demonstrate the possibilities.
I'm especially fond of how well it works in the dark-blue panelled room.

I totally agree: if you space is too dark, too drearily beige, or way too busy white can help alleviate the problem. Beautiful examples here.

This is my favorite kind of Houzz feature--a warm, inviting space with a welcome entryway even in a small area, simple non-window treatment to maximize light, furniture in proportion and arranged for conversation and relaxation--no honking brown or black leather couches--yet comfy as can be. Even the large TV dilemma is solved--it doesn't dominate and sits on a styish piece to draw the eye away from the black TV when it's off.

I also enjoy seeing how creatives work in thrift and Craigslist finds without anything looking junky or cluttered. Many people posing decorating dilemmas about how to make their spaces cozier, warmer, yet uncluttered could learn a lot by studying this couples' space

P.S. Love the chalkboard behind the bed. Next saying above the bed: "parents of teens nightmare." :)

WOW I'm a contractor in Illinois ,where I live and work you need a permit to do anything that has to structural,plumbing, electrical, all major curb appeal . I always pull permits. I did a what was to be some small projects. The previous homeowner did a major addition, pulled permits but failed to call for inspections. I came in and found faulty electrical, plumbing, foundation issues that cost more than the house was worth. Some of the thing a home inspector would not of seen but some were out in plan sight as well. I could of designed and built a house for what it cost to repair the neglect on this house . Please follow up with the inspections that are required when you pull a building permit . This should have never happend , but it did . I have the pic's.

You never know when a permit is required. In Dewey Beach Delaware you even need a permit if you are having your house painted! They made my painter from Maryland buy a $100. License when he had about two hours of painting left to do! It's all about the dollar!
