If you have never thought of white as a complex color, think again. Shades of White explores the versatility of this timeless color in the home setting. With breathtaking photos of rooms whose only common denominator is the thoughtful use of the color white, the book is broken out into four styles: rustic, classic, vintage, and modern.
More of an idea book than a how-to, Shades of White is fun to flip through and imagine playing with the elements that appeal to you most, mixed in to your own style and home.
Things that piqued my interest were the gallery wall of vintage mirrors in a cozy bathroom on page 18, a display of knick knacks and found objects mounted straight to a white-painted brick wall on page 94, and the splash of robin’s egg blue cabinets and island against bright white walls on page 145.
Those overwhelmed by the variety of whites will appreciate the catalog of paint colors from different companies and painting tips at the back of the book.
