design crush

13 April 2011
i confessed in january a developing love of interior design that might just be rivaling my interest in fashion. my interest continues to grow, due in large part to some of the amazing blogs i've come to visit regularly, like bijou and boheme and haute design. i promise not to lose focus of fashion, but i hope you'll give me leeway to explore other beautiful art forms, like design, from time to time.

i have a serious crush on whitewashed spaces and i'm seriously considering painting all of my dark wood furniture a bright white. i love how clean, open, and bright mostly-white rooms feel and i'm drawn to french design whether it's contemporary elegance or a country home.

do you think these spaces are as beautiful as i do?

Those pictures are FABULOUS - and I couldn't agree more with your two blog mentions! My eye was particularly drawn towards the upholstered bed with the three silk honeysuckle pillows - AMAZ! I admit that my style tends to be a little "louder" than these whitewashed rooms, but I would die to have a little getaway home on the beach or in the country to decorate JUST like this! Adore =) xoxo

I definitely love the harmony of white and the other tones in the rooms. White seems to make even the subtlest bits of texture stand out... so beautiful!

Alllll these images are absolutely gorgeous. It's funny, white as default in interior design makes me nuts - but white as a CHOICE, deliberately deciding to have white walls, furniture and decor, is so so elegant. Love it!!

I LOVE all of your pictures! They look like they should be in a Park Ave. apartment in Manhattan!

Sophie said...

I absolutely LOVE whitewashed spaces, and our first apartment was evenly split-our bedroom was all white, John's study was all espresso colored wood and our kitchen was full of light birch!

I'm also developing a huge interest in interior design and I'm trying to incorporate it in my blog. I love white interiors. In my opinion there's nothing more elegant than a white interior with minimalist furniture and wooden floors. Oh, and I'm seriously thinking of changing our wenge living-room furniture.;) Ada

Yes, they are beautiful. I love white, creamy and light spaces, couldn't have it otherwise and these are phenomenal, beautiful!
