White No More

After two years of debating, wishing, and waffling, we finally did it.

Our apartment walls are completely white. They're not even a slight off-white, they're white, white, white. Almost blinding white. We've added colorful paintings, Chinese scrolls, plants, and shelves, but the walls are still overwhelmingly white. Not anymore.

We found an awesome picture in a do-it-yourself magazine this summer of an apartment with white walls, wooden trim, and a cool accent color. We decided to copy the picture in our apartment. Now two of our living room walls are painted.

A whole winter spent inside seems less gloomy now that we're surrounded by cheerful colorful walls.

Yeah, my team leaders tried this in Hengyang when I was there, but it was impossible due to the crumbly nature of the wall plaster. They eventually hired someone to do it for them for their baby's room :)
Looks very un-Chinese! haha

Un-Chinese is great when it comes to my apartment. Our apartments are new so the walls haven't gained their crumbly nature.
