White is Alright with Me

The other day I was having a conversation with a friend who was expressing disdain for her white kitchen and once upon a time I had a white kitchen that I did not like just because it was white. What's up with that? But today, I am finding that I am drawn to white rooms with wood contrasts. Maybe it is like other things in life- an acquired taste??? Who knows- But I do find these examples striking.
