This book is a restored treasure, it speaks of Janet Parrella-van den Berg journey personally that is told through her love and connection to all things white and faded.

This combined with her own story of life, live, loss, damage and ultimately her renewed sense of value and identity is so beautifully brought together in this book – a true labor of love.
“I have received many enquiries about how to create that relaxed elegant look and feel that my interiors carry. Here are some principles you can apply to almost any interior environment: - Creating a colorful palette with tonal colors – which you often find in the same color swatch – are safe, yet can be perceived as bland when used together in the same room. However, using different shades of white give life, yields more reflected light and will stimulate more interest. I use white interiors as a background for accessories of different shades of whites, like the palest share of blue, grey or stone. Although all these colors are close to white, they are softer on the eye and warmer than a standard white paint” - By Janet Parrella-van den Berg.
“I started talking to Janet before I knew that she was the face of White & Faded and so I had been influenced by her and her love of interiors before our meeting. I also love interiors and my passion is to see space that has no love or life being transformed. It is not simply about the end result but the process to that place, but also not staying there. Moving items around the rooms and spaces whether they be small or the larger pieces of furniture, it’s all part of the evolution of the space, much like we are constantly evolving.” – By Kate Harpum
"This is a lovely book with lots of great photos and a a good story as well. I\u2019m glad to have it. The only reason why I gave it 4 stars and not 5 is because none of the photos brought any surprises. I was missing some artistic elements in the rooms that were portrayed. But overall it really is a lovely book to own. Thank you."
" I had seen the article on Janet\u2019s house a few years ago in 25 Beautiful Homes and her eye for detail and creating beautiful vintage rooms was evident and I had to have this book. Reading her story about her life and finding the courage to be creative and find herself is inspiring. \r\n"
