Clean Crisp White

Since I got back to Philadelphia this fall I have been feeling as though my life is extremely cluttered. You all know I love my little apartment, but trying to keep it neat with all of my things in their places is harder than you can imagine. I am fantasizing about clean, sleek spaces where everything is in its place and there is absolutely no clutter. I want to cast off all of my decorative objets and feel as though I have absolutely nothing weighing me down! (only for a day or so though … you know how I love a good objet)

Ralph and Ricky Lauren’s apartment over looking the Reservoir in Central Park. For the man who loves to fill his stores with things … he is pretty simple here in NYC.

Their kitchen … no clutter. Isn’t it heavenly. So strange since modern kitchen is typically not my style!

I absolutely love the simple hits of green with their potted plants–the bare floor and the white slipcovers are tres chic!

This architect designed her apartment with storage in mind … an avid sailor, she treated this project like a ship, where everything has its place.

Check out that view. The room’s white interior allows it to simply melt away, and one’s eyes are drawn straight out the windows.

One of the things that I love about Darryl Carter is his ability to mix modern minimalism with historic architecture and great antiques.  The fireplace is so modern, and yet the house is an old farmhouse. Antique doesn’t always have to mean clutter … clutter is simply victorian.

I wish my bathroom were this neat. 

Whilst I am in graduate school, I don’t see the clutter subsiding. What with text books and notebooks, calendars and post it notes, my life these days is essentially a massive paper trail. So for now I will simply light a Votivo Clean Crisp White candle, WWB’s favorite, and close my eyes and envision myself in a minimalist, clutter free, and chic apartment.
