White Can Be the Key to a Dramatic Room

Interior designer Vicente Wolf’s new book, Lifting the Curtain on Design, says simply, “White can do everything. Painting a room white simplifies the environment. It brings it to its essence.”

Wolf, who has spent most of his career trying to expand small places in New York City, relies on white strategically throughout an apartment. His approach could work in properties elsewhere.

“I almost always use different shades, different finishes. That’s what gives it depth. Even if you were to use the same color, it would read differently in different light,” Wolf says.

The color white emphasizes the furniture and the art in a room. “Let’s say you have 81/2-foot ceilings, flat walls and no detail at all,” Wolf says. “You put an 18th century chest in the room, and suddenly you have a different sense of architecture.”
