White House Wow! Decorating with Whites

White décor has ruled the past few Reinhard roosts. Here’s why it works for them: It’s the perfect subtle backdrop for quirky found objects and artwork. It marries varying textures, shapes, and building materials of the past with those of today. Uniform white linens (sheets, quilts, and towels) need only be bleached and washed, and can then be put in any room or bath in the house. A collection of disparate shaped chairs becomes uniform with a coat of white paint. Slipcovers make white furniture practical. Mr. Clean Magic Erasers and Simple Green All-Purpose Cleaner treat most anything that taints the all-white look.
