A white loft


A rather tardy start to the week - but all for a good cause. I've been busy, busy with projects around the house. One of which is finally painting the main rooms in shades of white and the palest grey. Finding the perfect white paint can be quite a challenge - so many different undertones that can change the whole way the light is cast in a space. Researching inspirational white spaces I found this beautiful loft in Chinatown, New York. 

The home serves as the live/work space of stylist Laurent Laborie and his partner Carl, an artist. Light, airy and full of personal charm. I think my favourite thing were these beautifully styled floating white shelves.






And an unexpected burst of colour!

Ooo you are right, it sure is tasty. I'm a fan of the purple kitchen, too, which is odd for me as I'm not normally a purple kinda guy!

I'm not a purple person but it totally works in that kitchen. I recently painted my kitchen a dark gray and I love it!
