Domino Magazine had a fantastic feature in their Aug 2007 issue with designer Windsor Smith and her beautiful Monterey colonial home located in Los Angeles. The home showcased modern looks with touches of color. Originally when she was looking at the home, it had more of an old-world flair in which she couldn't wait to transform it into a style of her own. "l love that European sensibility where the kids move into an ancestral home and inject it with their modern lifestyle,"She tells Domino that the dining room in most peoples homes are often the most underutilized space in a house. She decorates based on how a particular family uses their home rather than, decorating rooms based on their intended purpose. She opened up her own kitchen by getting rid of a maid's room, giving the kitchen a larger space to work with. The kitchen features an extra-long dining table with Chinese Chippendale white painted chairs. The checkerboard floors brings in depth and detail in an all white palette. She combines brushed silver industrial lamps overhead the table, and bright florals for a touch of color. She is not afraid of using punchy forbidden colors that most people shy away from. Her secret is to use white to create a balance in an overall scheme. Windsor Smith shows us how an all white palette can look extravagant.
