While some choose to decorate with bold and bright hues, others lean on white to define their space. White is crisp, clean, and extremely powerful. Often underestimated. That is, until it has its chance to shine. Get inspired by the many breathtaking sides that this rich and creamy color can offer to a home.
Carrère describes her apartment's aesthetic as a reaction to the visual overstimulation she experiences as a photographer and studio owner. "I was just feeling fed up with color," she says. "I felt that I needed a Zen place just for myself." So, determined to fashion her home into a creative refuge, she bought some cans of white paint.
A fresh coat of your favorite shade does wonders. For her apartment, Carrere painted end tables, shelves, and frames to fit her aesthetic- and budget. (Even exhausted thrift-shop pieces look better in white!)
When Carrère first moved, there were five different types of flooring throughout the apartment. She discovered that limiting her palette to white lent continuity to her surfaces- and also saved her the expense of replacing them!
