Neat and tidy are adjectives I would never used to describe myself. I fight against my messy tendencies but with so much to do in a day, I often lose the battle. It’s a terrible trait to have for a person who longs for a world of white in my home. Many find white spaces cold. I beg to differ. A white bedroom layered with texture and a kitchen lined in white panel cabinetry is the perfect complement to a vibrant life. I may not be able change my stripes, but one day I might be able to afford a live-in maid to keep my white rooms their brightest.
