When it comes to white interiors it’s no secret that I am a fan them, but when it comes to white interiors this place is W.H.I.T.E. And don’t get me wrong I say that with only the most obsessive and loving tone in my voice. The home which is a collaborative effort from Chris and Megan at CM Studio has lost all sense of color but the combo of textures gives it just as much depth as any color palette out there.
So, I am doing this new thing – it’s called, “get your ass out of bed at 7am and spend 45 minutes doing something for your self other than snoozing through 5 alarms then rushing off to the office”. The first couple of days consisted of wishful attempts but today I got up and out of bed, waltzed to the kitchen in a stumbling slumber, made myself a cup of coffee and then sat down in my breakfast nook and started writing this post. It took me 2.5 minutes to get my laptop open and get through these first few sentences (baby steps) but YOU GUYS, taking a little bit of time to do something for yourself in the morning feels good and I am very into it.
If you know me then you know that color is typically not my thing. It’s not that I hate it, hate using it, or am a part time closeted goth. It is just that with what I do everyday as a prop stylist and editorial director (could I sound more annoying?) I am constantly using color in either shoots, trend-driven stories or, propping (yep, just sounded more annoying). And while I absolutely have so much fun playing with it during my day job, when I come home at the end of the day I often love having things a bit more neutral in my place.

Once again a palette of black, white, and wood has my heart – go figure. I either hate color (in my own home) or there is something so simple and classic about this palette, that unlike everything else I am into which quickly trends or fades out this feels timeless enough that I don’t get sick of it. This classic townhouse in NY belongs to Tom Delavan, the editor for T Magazine and former editor of Domino, (no wonder it is so good).
