All kinds of whites.
White is boring and visually undefined. Yawn.
Color -- rich, glorious, emotionally-charged -- has an impact that stuffy old whitey never can.

I am always amazed at the reluctance of people to use color in their homes. What's the worst that could happen? You waste a day painting...and...okay...another day repainting. But honestly! Isn't a little risk worth having surroundings that rejoice in saturated, lovely color?
And paint is cheap! So...DO IT!
