These words are a direct quote from Jonathan Adler, featured in House Beautiful. In this house that he decorated for fashion designer Liz Lange he says; “We painted all the floors white, which is something I always love to do for instant happiness. Color is a great way to express playfulness. Throughout the house, we used turquoise, yellow, lime green, black and white, with nothing toned down. One of the nice things is that it’s a light-filled house, and the colors just crank that up to the next level.”
Turquoise always seems to look so great when paired with white and black. On an exterior of a house, any shade of turquoise all the way to a dark teal look fabulous with black and white.
Another white kitchen which is the next trend after espresso brown cabinets.
I’m trying to remember where I saw this graphic rug first but it’s everywhere now! Nate Berkus used one very similar in his apartment featured in Elle Decor Magazine.
It looks like all the doors on the main floor have been painted black! Beautiful, and certainly does a great job of breaking up all the WHITE walls!
In the master bedroom, the bed is draped with navy linen curtain panels suspended on Restoration Hardware‘s Estate Metal curtain hardware in oil-rubbed bronze. An easy look to copy in your own home! These drapes are available at IKEA, see the post I wrote about them here.
I love Jonathan Adler’s design aesthetic, and especially his 10 commandments for a happy chic home.
