Simply white

I cannot get enough white. I think I have more design books on 'white' then for anything else. White feels clean. It makes me feel uncluttered. And when white is clean ... you know it is clean. I guess that says a lot about me. I need clean.
I love my white slipcovered furniture. It has lasted longer than anything else. I don't get tired of them and and I can change their look anytime I want with new pillows. And they wash (even bleach if necessary) beautifully. I went through a period where I thought I needed color ... and so I switched. But it didn't last long. It wasn't me. I changed back.

I also love the contrast between white and dark woods, or with pops of color. I prefer white bath towels, white sheets & white candles. I love a vase filled with all white flowers (preferably the same kind of flowers). I like white mouldings and prefer painted white kitchen cabinets. I love to dine on white china. I use white platters everywhere. I like a wide white mat around framed photos. And white Adirondack chairs are perfection. I have white pedestal cake plates in every shape and size (well, not every). White can be dressed up and it can be dressed down.

And I have the BEST white DOG named Milo!
Here he is ... at the local shelter ... when we first met him ...

Ummm what a LOVE he is! 
So for me, white is the color of choice. But for my clients ... rarely. Most people prefer color. And so I bring in white (I always bring in white!) in other ways. I bring in white with accessories, books, furniture and even dishes. Nothing pops color like white.

What is your favorite color?

My favorite color is green. Always has been. But not just any green. Christmas green has never been on the list and blueish greens are a no go. Asparagus or olive greens are currently my fav. But chartreuse is the be all end all for me!
