More About This Book

Overview

White is one of the most popular shade in the contemporary palette — immaculate, fresh, and serene, the perfect backdrop for a modern interior. A white-painted room provides an effective starting point for many different decorative interiors, and it has become a classic backdrop to an international style that relies on clean lines, texture, and uncomplicated styling, while traditional homes in hot and humid climates tend to use the reflective, cool qualities of white to provide calming and peaceful retreats. Outdoors, white stucco and plaster, pale concrete, and bleached hardwoods are used to brilliant effect.

Living with White explores the materials and finishes being used by architects and designers across the world. A contemporary, modernist beach house on Florida's Emerald Coast rises out of shimmering white sands; and airy cubist building in the heart of Miami is sheltered by a high white wall, behind which lush planting blurs the division between inside and out; a farmhouse near Cape Town relies on bare natural surfaces, texture and white to create a fascinating blend of modern and Indonesian style, and on a tiny island in the Aegean, traditional white plaster is used on the floors, walls, and high vaulted ceiling of a converted winery.

Specially photographed in Europe, Africa, and America, Living with White shows how one scheme can be used in so many ways to create stylish yet individual homes.
