The Power of White

May 15th, 2012

Though color is definitely making a comeback, I have always been (and always will be) a loyal lover of white. Some of my favorite designers, like Darryl Carter also wax poetic about the power of white. By using this hue you allow the intrinsic beauty of a furniture piece or decorative object to really come through, uninterrupted.

So when I came across Victoria’s serene Brooklyn apartment, I instantly fell in love. She embraces that same notion so elegantly in her pad. By eliminating the visual color distractions, she’s created a space where each piece is revered and showcased in all its glory.

Isn’t the effect positively calming, sophisticated, and elegant? All things I crave my home to always be!

I wholeheartedly agree. As a designer, I do appreciate colour in all forms, but there’s nothing I love more than pure, crisp white.

Major fan of white, cream, ivory… etc. They create a look that is clean, sophisticated and timeless. Those are attributes I want attributed to my personal style and my decorating style.

Side note: the framed shot of Cary Grant doesn’t hurt, either! Easily the best hair of any Hollywood male, ever.
