Oh, I've been searching for hours for the picture and article to go with what I am about to tell you, but no luck. I'll have to wing it.
In light of my most recent post I had to share a quote I read from the owner of an all-white apartment. The apartment had a great view over Manhattan. So in order to showcase the view the owners decided to go for a pure white decorating scheme.
And it was white. And meticulous. There was not another colour in the mix. And there were no personal accessories.
I've never seen it's equal.
When asked why they had no books around, one of the owners answered,
"We already know how to read..."
To top it off, they had 11 TVs, including one in the hall outside the toilet.
I guess they don't need books because their design philosophy speaks volumes...
