LoftLife did a post on white lacquer a few days ago and it's right on target for me. I want shiny right now! Gleaming floors & furniture, throw in some linen and wood for texture... These photos sort of sum up some of the elements.
And again with the black & white. Sorry. I'll try for more colour soon.
