Everyone says that London has some of the most beautiful old architecture in the world but as i’ve been walking the streets of New York this week I have noticed the most stunning colour combinations gracing the city’s warehouse style buildings. Rarely in London do I see buildings with complimentary aesthetics sitting side by side and most usually march to their own merry tune!
These New York buildings are stacked up next to each other and adorned with subtle and elegant greys, blues, olives and taupes like someone has taken a giant Farrow and Ball brush and swept across Manhattan in a flurry of on-trend colour combinations. Even railing details, recessed windowsills and doors are highlighted in perfect symphony. Has anyone else ever noticed?
