White splendor...

For summer of just because...I'm thinking white! So, if you are familiar with Vicente Wolf, then you understand he is the no stranger to a neutral color palette. Thus, this renovated Greenwich Village apartment designed by Wolf and his associate David Rogal featured in Metropolitan Home magazine is perfect for those seeking "fresh, clean, and liveable" design inspiration.

Although the apartment was left intact as much as possible, Wolf and Rogal removed arched openings and several walls that prevented the "loftlike" feeling they were hoping to achieve with the design.

I love the simplicity of the fireplace and the gray-blue color palette displayed with textiles and paints through out...

The owner wanted a home that was comfortable and could stand the test of time. These ebony hardwood floors and white walls create a neutral backdrop to add and subtract color from, no matter the palette.

My favorite room...I love these chairs and the David Weeks pendant!

With the use of wall to wall mirrors at the vanity, stainless steel tiles and white walls...this master bath takes on a much grander feel!

What's not to love in this room...esp. with the French colonial desk converted to a night stand and a Jonathan Adler white lacquer cube. This large area rug helps ground the floating bed...what a great idea!
