White Wash

Easter is over, and I needed yesterday to recover from a quick traveling weekend to Pinehurst, North Carolina. The weather was beautiful and I bought some wonderful finds from local decor shops (see post this Friday!). Because Easter is over, this also means that white is back!! The day after Easter is it’s own special holiday for me. It means white jeans are acceptable in places other than Florida, and I quickly do away with my indigo denim boredom.

When it comes to design, white is always a great canvas. It is also very tricky to perfect. I recently watched (multiple times)  Laura Slatkin’s interview on Quintessence. She described how she was at Lenny Kravitz’ home in Paris, and begged him for his white paint color. White is difficult, but when you get it right… it is so worth the clean, crisp, and classic ambience it exudes.

I hope you are “white” here with me! Happy Tuesday!

  1. Hi Christina,
    Beautiful post about my favorite color! There is nothing more beautiful than a white on white room. And if there’s a shot of chartreuse, I’ve died and gone to heaven!
