In a recent blog post about her love for white, Canadian House & Home Design Editor Kathryn Bala posted a picture of her loft that appeared in House & Home's January 2010 issue. I'm noticing how a few elements, such as the leather bound books, worn wing back chair, period portrait and ticking stripe pillows take this space in a formal, distinguished direction. Also love how she paired the round, modern bulbs with the zinc finish chandelier. Photography by Donna Griffith.
