{décor inspiration : the perfect mix of art and life}

. . . and it has been a while since there has been décor that so inspired -- not since the display cabinets, in fact, has there been anything that made one take a second look -- that is, until recently happening upon the story behind tom develan's inspiration for his own spaces: "general whiteness punctuated with dabs of color" and
"the perfect balance of color and whiteness, of scribbles and negative space, of spontaneity and mindfulness"; and it all began with a photograph by horst p. horst of artist's cy twombly's home, and ended with the perfect mix of art and life . . .

This has always been one of my favourite spaces. I love those huge windows and ceiling height book shelves. To. Die. For.

Stunning! I love rooms which are predominantly white but have some pretty colour in just the right doses. Really lovely!

You've misspelled the name of the designer. It's Tom Delavan, not "develan" as you posted.
