Who has more Savoir Faire?

It is nothing new now for a designer to pose for their own advertising, sort of helps sometimes to put a face behind the name. Posing naked is nothing new also. YSL first did when launching his new men’s fragrance in the early 70’s and now we have Marc Jacobs going down the same path.

Who has more savoir faire?

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!
