A New Canvas...

...of pure white...

...with sparks of pink and turquoise...

...and red, as red as the soles of Christian Louboutin boots...

I used to believe that interior walls should be painted strong colors (preferably something from Farrow & Ball)...But lately I've been thinking that white-on-white sets off flea-market finds most beautifully. What do you think?

I've been gathering up plates today for my plate wall. Thank you for all your suggestions! (And Tina Tarnoff's brilliant link to the ultimate plate wall.) I ordered a set of Thomas Paul's silhouette dessert plates and found several gorgeous orange saucers at the flea market. I'm thinking about mixing in a few vintage Chinese enamel plates. And of course blue and white china...

PS: The photos are, yet again, by James Merrell. I'm so in love with his website, packed with inspiration.

I think white sets off objects, people and their clothes beautifully throughout a house, but somehow a bedroom wants a soft colour, lots of white linens and fragrant flowers of any hue.
