There is much more to it than that. 1) it has been the default look by decorators 2) young homeowners see it as contemporary and updated (perhaps remembering their mom's all white or all black appliances of the early 90's. 3) it has been the default editorial look in almost every mid to high-end home magazine for a decade or more. 4) from a practical side it provides a neutral background for contemporary or funky eclectic to MCM furniture and decorating. 5) it gave...

Not last week. We had up to 25 mile and hour winds and some rain from a front that was passing through. Temps varied in the 70's but didn't drop much at night which was nice.

That navy tie is nice....
Plus he was having fun with Valerie
