Painted Floors

I just love the look of a white painted floor.  I'm sure you are in shock over that one!
I'm also sure that most of my in-real-life friends wouldn't agree with me.
I love white.  Have for a loooong looooooong time.  When I was in High School I asked for, and received, a subscription to 'Victoria' magazine.  One of the issues featured and all-white garden.
I was in love!  I wanted to do that too.  But since it was not my garden but my Mom's I didn't.
I did get a white rose bush for Christmas one year but I didn't take the best care of it and it didn't flourish like it could have.  I loved the idea of an all-white wedding, but for various reasons I never pursued it.
But wait.... I was talking about floors wasn't I?!!  Oops!

This room belongs to Tracy at French Larkspur.
Every time she posts pics of her decor I just swoon.  I love it!  And I think the biggest difference between her stuff and other white decor that I love is the floors.  Her floor is painted white.  Someday I am going to have a white painted floor.  Somewhere.  Even if it's only in my sewing room someday.  You see, my husband likes wood.  I like wood too, I just like mine with a beautiful, gorgeous coat of white paint!  But getting my main floors painted white will probably be too much of a stretch.  And I'm fine with that - I like my natural hardwood pretty well :)

I really don't remember where I got this one and the one below.  I'm thinking probably Remodelista.
Glad for Pinterest now to eliminate this problem.  But I still have all these cool photos saved on my computer.  ( you know I really like what they used those old bed springs for.  Might have to be on the lookout for old bed springs!  What a cool inspiration board.  And I just know my hubby would be SO impressed)

Love the industrial look, the white floor, the glass domes over the delectable desserts...
What's NOT to love!?!  I want to go to this resaurant.  Too bad I don't know where it is...

Totally off topic but Sis this one is for you.  It's not the original photo I had in mind but the graveled area and grassed center is the idea I thought you should use when you get to the landscaping stage!!!!!
Just my opinion though, so don't feel pressured. :)

I'm going to end up with a painted floor in the upstairs bathroom for a while, and I don't mind a bit. So much better than carpet! It's not white, but gray, though.

And I like the circle-we may get to landscaping sometime in the next , oh, 20 years!! :)

I love white too! I want to paint my cabinets white, but haven't gotten the nerve yet. Since my husband thinks it's a little crazy, it's all me :) and that's a little scary!

I like the look of white in other people's houses but between having 3 boys, hating to clean, and not being very good about keeping things clean, it's not a safe idea for me to have anything white at my house. I'm a beige, dark brown girl :o) The color of mud, lol.

I never thought so before but white floors are so sheek and clean, especially brand new painted!

I too like white painted floors, but I also happen to know for a fact that white floors show every speck of dirt and hair that falls to the ground... so unless you like to run a swifter or sweeper alot... it is hard to keep them looking nice. Just a thought... course that same thought comes from the girl with extremely dark trim that shows all traces of dust =)

I have been toying with the idea of ripping out the carpets in the RV we are remodeling and then painting the floors. Like the idea of white, but then my creative side would have to draw all over it, too! Check us out at www.rvingthedream.blogspot.com if you get a chance.

When I was much younger, I happened upon a gray house that was totally surrounded by different types of rocks and bluish bushes. No grass or green anywhere except the adjoining properties. I fell in love with that gray house, though I have never duplicated it myself.

As always, thanks for sharing.
