BRILLIANT WHITES

Deciding what color to paint a room is often a task on its own. Can you remember how many times you've stood in front of a sea of color chips with a blank stare on your face not knowing which one to pick? I've certainly done it way too many times, especially when faced with the hard decision of choosing the 'perfect' white. That's why, as a contributor to My Colortopia blog, I chose to break down the myths about this terrific neutral and its many tonalities in a post for their Color 101 series. I invite you to take a peek and get the nitty-gritty on this popular color that will help you decide which one is the right one for your project. Besides white, the series also expands on other color families and gives you tips to help you make the right color choice. Enjoy!  

I have been sponsored by the Glidden® brand paint for PPG to write this post but the thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.

THE SKY IS THE LIMIT

Today, we embark on a make-believe trip over the Atlantito take a tour of this spectacular penthouse in Marseille, France. For interior designer Francois Champsaur the sky was literally the limit when he was comissioned to renovate the top floor apartment of an old storage building. His vision was to create an open-layout plan where light navigates the spacious rooms of this modern home. The designer has the amazing talent of playing with proportions and color incorporating pieces that make a dramatic statement — like that amazing oversized round mirror sitting on one corner of the living room. I mean WOW!

A PASSION FOR COLOR

Known for her passionate love affair with color, French interior designer Sarah Lavoine lets  us take a peek into this fabulous Parisian duplex she designed. With a black and white base color palette, Sarah introduced strokes of jewel tones to create a sexy design story. I'm sure she decided to paint the floors white to make these gorgeous colors pop and really come alive. Her masterful mix of furniture styles has the right proportion between old and new pieces. I'm in love!

COLOUR O'CLOCK

Why have a regular wall clock when you can have a colorful, ever-changing time piece on your wall? British designer Duncan Shotton creates "products that engage users emotionally, promote happiness and ensure people love what they’re doing, wherever they are and whoever they're there with." And the Colour O'Clock is no exception to his rule. It's a fun piece that changes color as time passes by. Love!

A UNIQUE SHIFT IN DESIGN

To keep in line with the color theme this week, today I got inspired by Umbra's new line of home accents. Umbra Shift is a collection that's fresh, functional and with a unique point of view. The design is minimalist yet very clever with the right touch of that amazing Nordic sensitivity. The whole collection is great but the Coiled Stool is one of my favorite pieces — I think it's super clever. You can take a peek at their e-catalogue here. Enjoy!

A NEUTRAL START

Having a neutral color base for your home will make it easier to introduce pops of color here and there. Just like in this dazzling Oslo home, a color palette of gray, black and white creates a perfect backdrop for the sprinkles of soft aqua and yellow they introduced in the kitchen and dining areas. The pseudo English style of the decor is the perfect complement to the industrial chic feel of the home.
