don't think there was ever a time that I didn't like white walls but I love them more as the years go by. I have learned to understand colour through design and I know that the reason I love white is so that I have a backdrop for the art that I really, really love.
Besides just liking white, it's important to understand the colour theory (oh, but that's for another post!) as well as what we want out of white. Is is expected to be self sufficient and carry the show or is simply be the meek and mild wallflower in the corner.

This is a match made in heaven. I've never met a wood that didn't love white. From shabby chic to the utterly elegant and then to the most eco friendly, white is the quintessential partner to wood.
