Shades of White    

The most frequent question I'm asked is about the white paint colours I'm using!

My customers and other people always like to know which are my whites....I collect all the white paint swatches from Ralph Lauren, Benjamin Moore and Annie Sloan Chalk Paint.

I obsess over all the subtle shades that will transform a space. In my 120 year old Barn which we converted to my store and with it’s wooden wide beams and tongue groove walls I chose pure whites as a canvas for the unique merchandise we sell to stand out on the tables and shelves.

Over the years I have found that I rely on certain essentials for our home in all shades of white, particularly paints and fabrics for a simple transformation. A coat of the right shade of white paint can change the room, a table, a chair or a fence.

In our home I chose soft and pure whites. Simple white slip covers on sofas and chairs are a signature detail for me: they create a sense of serenity, comfort and cleanliness all blended with antique Scandinavian armoires, mirrors, desks and tables painted in various whites.
