Think About It Thursday: Why Do We Love Black and White

I don’t know about you, but I love color.  I love pops of blues and greens, maybe sprinkle in some pink.  I envy a room with crisp whites and bundles of colorful joy in little nooks and crannies – just enough to make you swoon.  However, I also am obsessed with the lack of color and all colors combined (i.e. black and white).  What is it with these colors, or I suppose I should call them shades, that makes people go crazy?

Home Room

After packing up all of my crap and hauling it out, I realized my room looked pretty good. Sad isn’t it? It looks good when I’m not living there anymore. But, I’m over it. I took a bunch of pictures and thought I would share
