I have wanted to write about the Coven House in American Horror Story for quite some times, but what can be said of perfection?
As far as I can see they are:
--Start with an ornate space (moldings galore) and then paint everything white on white on white.
--Throw in some light grey, beige, tan, pale wood, etc. - just enough to make the white base feel layered and effortless.
--Select a few moments of dark wood to slash through the space.
--Bare minimum of furnishings (this is not a home of collectors). Keep the furniture spindly, classic, and feminine.
--Hang some old paintings on the wall in thick gilded frames to remind everyone that the home is old-school and classy-as-hell.
--Voila! Wear black at all times so you stand out in every room.
