Seeing in color: Still Alright With White

By karly at Design-Crisis

Every once in a while I catch myself totally aware of my love for a trend. I’ll be completely enraptured with a color or a style and will go ape-shit crazy hunting it down and buying it up well aware, albeit sadly, that the love affair will end in one or two short seasons.

I’ve been pretty whack-a-doodle crazy about white walls for a while. I keep waiting for it to pass, hesitant to paint yet another room in my house white, wondering what will come next. Well, apparently next up is white. Yep, 2 years into my love affair with crisp walls, I renewed my trend-vows when I stumbled upon the interiors of Nacho Polo. That’s Nacho Polo Spanish designer, not to be confused with Nacho the Polo player from Argentina, who’s hotty hotness was featured in this month’s Elle Decor.

Let’s see if you all are still smitten with white as well:

Ok, so this may be the meeting ground for every single trend of 2009 (hello bust and metallic gold tile) but you can’t fight me on the awesomeness of this space. You just can’t.

I am a fan of monochromatic texture. Especially if it’s white and anchored by a sexy black lamp at the end of the hallway.

There’s that bust again.

Prey tell, why would you paint your walls any other color with that sort of architectural detail and groovy view?

This must be the room we were seeing at the end of the white hallway. And this is a list of things I love: those chairs, that candelabra. Lovelovelove.

For those of you who need a little more pattern mixed in with your white (I’m guilty of this a-plenty) Nacho brings stripes to the game.

And what better color to accent your large scale soft core artwork? Yep, you got it.

    Hi Veronika, although I’m not a big fan of white, I LOVE the application here especially the white frames on the white walls. It almost resembles a relief sculpture. These spaces scream clean, fresh and pure. Thanks for sharing!

    I agree and look forward to your white on white pics, I’m all over that look at the moment.

    Loving this! I am a huge fan of white on white and think it’s fabulous to see it making a reapearance in the design world. Yay!

    Love white as well, but what really makes this is the moldings and textures – all in white. Beautiful.
