Examples of How to Acheive the No Color Look

Traditional Home magazine, October 2009, featured among others, Eva Quateman's home. She indicated she wanted to have a no color home using ivory, white black and gold. She sees gold as I see red, at times, as a neutral more than a color. The photographer for this layout was Werner Straube.

                            In the living room, she designed the mirrored fireplace screen.

The living room is eclectic but yet so traditional. One sees so few truly traditional looking homes any more that that it does my heart good to see this room.

The Chinese screens bring in that Asian touch. Every room should have something Asian in it no matter how small it might be. The fabric on the couch makes the room glamourus.

One recamier is found in the living room and another one is in the master bedroom.

If you look to the left you can see through the dining room into the library and one of the bookcases inside. The table base is Lucite.

She carried out the black and white look through out the breakfast room, kitchen and sitting room.

You can get a glimpse of the couch in the sitting room below in the right hand corner.
