instagram of my clothes getting packed today
My daughter sends me an email (wherein she's freaking out) because I have painted my interior head to toe white. I am also painting my wood furniture white. my advice to her is simply "give up"....i know what my dream is all about.....but thaaanks dear just the same.
This all white interior concept is not a new vision I just came up with yesterday. It's been maybe 10 years since I worked with several designers on many homes (i've written about it many times on this blog) where we painted the entire space in a pure head to toe white and then decorated with a bright or even pastel color accents. Using bed linens, rugs, plants flowers and art on walls. Bright color accents in a global marketplace are not hard to find.

Do you see?......Very good. Do you remember back in 2008 when I blogged "Things I learned about color by osmosis".....well color has always been something I can figure out rather well. Thank goodness because colors make people happy. This has been proven by science.
art goes on the white walls rather well.
Here are more examples (by Polly Wreford photography) of the use of color in an all white room.
these colors are some of the hopefuls at the top of my most wanted list.
sfgirlbybay "summer color"
you see how simple adding color to all white rooms really is?
or maybe you don't see that. it's OK.
18 months ago I turned my vintage couch to solid turquoise. In 2014 Costal Living Magazine declared Turquoise "Color of the year 2014" see? that's the way it goes when design worlds collide. When sfgirlbybay blogged the turquoise couch (a few weeks ago) and calls it "summer color" well.... um... we have summer (and blue pools) year round in the desert ....and everything is gonna be quite allright.
well i must run now. my to do list is quite large. no time to blog. i hope everyone out there gets the colors they truly dreamed of and really like. i still have more white furniture painting to do so in the words of Kate Spade:
more proof if you really need it:
an artists new york home (white space with colors) via sfgirl
bolivian blankets (you see?) via my pinterest
more examples on my pinterest boards
