This month’s Metropolitan Home (the last ever, maybe? It closes with its December issue) features a very nice house in Costa Mesa, California. It’s full of colour and pattern, but a closer look shows that the vast majority of these elements are entirely changeable: all the walls are white. This is a standard practice among designers and a good lesson in economy – if you’re going to spend vast amounts of money on the fabric of your building, make sure that it’s neutral enough so that you’ll never get sick of it, and just update everything else as you go along.
