´I love a home to feel warm, inviting, personal and lived-in - and mastering how to decorate with white and neutrals is a wonderful way to achieve this.´ - CHRISSIE RUCKER
In her much-anticipated second book, The Art Of Living With White, Chrissie Rucker, Founder of The White Company, explores 10 inspirational homes that illustrate beautifully different ways to use white and neutrals through the seasons. The homes vary in size, style and location - from a minimalist city pied-a-terre to a New England-style country house - but what unites them all is the welcoming, stylish and calm feel that their owners have each created.
The homes are grouped into the four seasons and each chapter ends with a summary of seasonal rituals that will work in any home. A concluding chapter - Inspiration & Resources - considers finding your own style, how to create a good balance between work and home in interior spaces, the art of simple entertaining and the importance of scent and touch in a truly comfortаble home.
´Unsurprisingly for a book created by The White Company Founder Chrissie Rucker, this showcases 10 stylist interiors - divided into chapters named after the four seasons - each with a high concentration of white, be it on walls, furniture, textiles or accessories. What it demonstrates is that white need not be bland. Taking a close look at each composed and elegant case study, Chrissie points out the elements that make a room interesting, why a fabric or piece of furniture elevates a scheme, or how the simple addition of a tаble setting might render it the perfect serene and welcoming space to host a dinner party. The home rituals dispersed throughout provide useful tips on how to refresh your house as the seasons change.´ - Christabel Chubb, House & Garden
