Savoir Blanc!

I love white! It is such a pure colour and I have always loved decorating with white. All white interiors give you the freedom of adding in splashes of colour that then become the focal point of the room whether it be a vase of flowers or a piece of art. In my formative years I wanted all white interiors, however I soon gave that up as everyday life crept in and suddenly you realise that all white just does not match your busy lifestyle.

So A few pieces of white have to suffice and one of the best ways to bring light and casual elegance into a room is with the white chair.

I think even outdoor white iron chairs from France (left in their original state) work just as well inside and out.

Sometimes old chairs just begged to be painted white and covered with a fabric that stands out.

One of my all time favourites are Chippendale chairs painted white.

And last but not least, the crème de la crème of white chairs, the white Eames chair and footstool and white Barcelona chairs (mixed with classic other pieces) of course!


  1. I love all white...one of the reasons I like staying in certain hotels are the all white, crisp linens.

    That Eames chair is incredibly sexy.

  2. I do like white, but you know me - love my colour too! A white base with strong pops of pattern and colour is all good for me.

  3. Where is that house in the first photo? If it is in Valley Village in the San Fernando Valley then I almost bought it 10 years ago!

  4. Jill, I too love Hotels for their crisp white linens and towels. The Eames chair in white is to die for!

    Will, yes you are the colurful one!

    Belle, not too sure where it is.

  5. Brilliant collection David, love a white eames. but the detail on the back of that other chair is amazing!

  6. Jules, For a white plastic chair it is pretty amazing!

  7. chair number 7, the elegant white and grey one. where did you find it? i agree to your statement about how to decorating with white chairs, im doing it now, and i'd really love to know where you found it! Please answer:( <3 - Sandra
