Acerca de


"Veteran design writer Linda O'Keeffe looks at the color's usage in architecture, art, and interiors, providing visually striking examples and reflections from well-known talents past and present. White enthusiasts Vicente Wolf and Jennifer Post are represented, as is minimalist master John Pawson. . . . There are surprising designs from decorators famous for their use of bold color, such as Benjamin Noriega-Ortiz, Kelly Wearstler, and Jonathan Adler, who managed to maintain his trademark exuberance in a nearly all-white contemporary-rococo Manhattan bedroom. In the end, O'Keeffe celebrates all neutrals--from ivory to ecru--even devoting a chapter to defending that often-maligned shade, beige." --"Architectural Digest"

"A sleek coffee-table volume by Linda O'Keeffe, a longtime observer of design who was the creative director of Metropolitan Home magazine for 16 years. Citing Sir Isaac Newton's 17th century experiment that confirmed white light to be a combination of all the colors in the spectrum, O'Keefe explores the subtleties of white -- and traces its historic and cultural roots -- in interiors, architecture, and art. For her, white is the universal, timeless color, versatile enough to transcend the moment." --"The New York Times Style Magazine"

"Years ago, visiting Richard Meier & Partners Architects, I was impressed by a wall of paint swatches, all of them white or, to be more exact, all of them whites, for they displayed an unexpected range. This stylish and refreshing book creates a similar effect by showing ivory, marble, pearls, porcelain, plaster, and paper alongside white furnishings, fabrics, and interiors." --Stanley Abercrombie, " Interior Design" Magazine
