With the myriad of colors available, why white? White – the ideal background for fine art, for architectural accent both interior and exterior. It is unique in that it does not compete with any other color. It can be either the star or the supporting actor. Anything that sits next to it will be comfortable. White can alter itself depending on the changing light in the room. Whites have personality, from warm to cool, from vibrant to sharp edged, from traditional and gracious to young and modern.
” For those colors which you wish to be beautiful, always first prepare a pure white ground.” Leonardo Da Vince
From Vintage, Classic & Traditional…..
To Modern, Sleek, & Edgy….
From Fabrics & Textiles……
and Everyday Items…..
and on animals……
White is everywhere.
Offering white rooms for inspiration, enjoyment or contemplation……..the rooms I feature here have white walls, furniture and in many cases, white textiles. There are a few that have a punch of color, but limitedly. This approach differs from rooms with white walls, but bold or dramatic furniture, art and textiles. I will do a post on that soon. I also did not do white kitchens, but will post that separately as well. I hope you enjoy.
What do you think? Do you like all white? There are many designers and color consultants that feel this is the only way to go, particularly in kitchens and baths. I like it, but have an eclectic approach to design, and feel it may not be everybodies cup ‘o tea. You have heard me say this in many of my posts, and it is one of the reasons I blog…..design and decor should reflect your joys, interests and own personal style. It should reflect you authentically. Although you may need the assistance of a designer at times in putting together a cohesive approach to achieving this, it should always remain your end goal.
The first day of spring……and the sun came out!!!! Thanks for stopping by. Laters, charisse
