Thoughts on Design: ABSENCE OF COLOR

I came across this photo recently 

of a porch 

I did in a home in Easton. 

The homeowner has had a fascinating life. 

A Kenyan-born Brit, she spent years 

traveling with her late husband, an 


living in Cyprus, 

the Sultanate of Oman, Egypt. 

I was struck by the way the angle of the chairs echoes the rock path outside.

An envelope of white. Pale cement floor. Black wrought iron. Rich woods. 

Backdrop: nature. 

The pieces in the room, they are alive, 


The plaid of the chairs, 

linear curve of the camel stools, cedar legs of the driftwood table reaching out. 

Just the faintest rose of the pear.

There is such beauty in simplicity.
