We're big believers in the power of a nice coat of white paint to clean up or brighten an otherwise dingy space. We painted our dirty, funky floors white to tide us over until we can replace them, but after staring at this warehouse space for the last few days, we're starting to abandon our dreams of cork in favor of keeping the white.
Artist Stephen Antonakos and his wife, Naomi Spector, "whited" out their New York warehouse space and it couldn't look cleaner, brighter or more modern. Citing Greek influences and wanting to keep the space minimalist in order to compliment Stephen's light-based sculptures and installations, the couple has kept the entire space white for the past 40 years.
We like that they've warmed up the rooms with natural wood accents and featured their small collections in simple ways; it keeps the white from feeling too sterile.
While we don't really go in for all white spaces that often, there's something about the simplicity of the home that intrigues us....and we're drooling over those amazing floors.
