The idea of the absence of colour in my surroundings is a fairly new urge. Until recently, I have embraced colour in the home the way a woman in NYC embraces Black. Recently though, it has become obvious that natural organic elements look best surrounded by a neutral palette. I have discovered about 50 shades of white and have dismissed the grey all together. The textures of leather, sisal, wood, plaster, fur, burlap, linen, and lace, all come forward and play a more important role in my home. Texture and history jump off the page in these settings. Try out this new simple neutral rustic charm and French Nordic palette for yourself , and let me know what you think!
