White out...

Country Living's February issue is all about white...a color I really love because you can mix and match so many other colors with it, if not all other colors.  The mag asks three designers to weigh in on white - you may know them: Rachel Ashwell, Darryl Carter and Suzanne Kasler.

Rachel thinks white can be cozy by using textures and soft furnishings, Darryl makes a great point and one I wholeheartedly agree with. He says "white makes old things seem current" - just take an old wooden table or chair, paint it white and dress it with fabulous fabric and 'pow'. Suzanne likes to use white as a foundation and says with white 'everything stays simplistic and strong.'  This is a wonderful issue and I thought I would post just one image from each designer.
