My two posts on white: White Kitchen Cabinets and The Best Trim Colours—Not Cloud White are still the most read on my site! Why is white so big? Perhaps because it’s so easy to transform the feeling of a space just by changing art, pillows and objects—and the wall colour!
Putting the staircase opposite the front door added drama but ran the risk of blocking a view. The architects engineered the dramatic stair to be as thin as possible, using oak treads to dampen sound and instill warmth.

A 19th-century gilded chair mitigates the contemporary look of the bedroom sitting area, which is oriented around an existing fireplace reclad in Carrara marble.

In this dining room, all you’d have to do to change the feeling is paint the walls above the wainscoting. This is the perfect solution to NOT having your decor boss you around!
How great are these beachy bunk beds? The built in shelves are perfect for books and a glass of water!
I’m styling a kitchen this week for an interior designer that is having it photographed. I fell in love with this silver bowl on a pedestal with the grass and grapes! Maybe I could figure out a way to incorporate this look into that kitchen (stay tuned for photos).
I just love this room with the zebra rug, forced flowering branches, and organic elements such as the stumps and green glass on the bookshelves!
See the white roman shades? I did white linen roman’s for a client last year and when the south/west sun came shining through them, they had a yellow cast to them! Has anyone else ever had that happen?
Here the windows have so much architectural detail that they don’t need drapery! Love the white coral and Ralph Lauren hurricane lanterns on the coffee table!
Just a little white-on-white patio off the living room, next to the water to finish off your Sunday with a glass of wine!!
