White is no longer a particularly popular wall color, as reflected in the latest trends in interior design. Many people have come to the conclusion -- an accurate one -- that white has been used so often as a background color that it's become a bit of a bore.At the same time, however, I think it's silly to make decisions about an interior solely in accordance with what happens to be in or out at a given moment. In the case of white walls the fact remains that no other color works so well as a backdrop for objects or other colors.

Labor Day has come and gone, but there's no need to pack away all that white. Not only can you still wear it, you can use the color to give your decor a lift. Fashion designers from Derek Lam to J. Mendel stocked their fall 2012 collections with crisp winter whites. And interior designers agree: All year round, white is hot. Patrick Sutton, a Baltimore interior designer and owner of Patrick Sutton Home in Harbor East, has long extolled the virtues of decorating with white. "It's been one of my favorite colors for my whole career," he says.

Frank and Lara Faulkner welcome visitors through the back entrance of their Locust Point rowhouse because parking is more convenient there and the area is a neighborhood gathering spot. "Our front is the back [of the house]," Frank Faulkner says, laughing. The contradiction bears a simple explanation. A wide alley behind Woodall Street adjoins both the Amoco station on Key Highway and a large, grassy area where neighbors meet for picnics and parties. And from the alley, homeowners often greet company by the gates of their manicured back yards.

The snowball stand on Route 99. Lake Kittamqundi at dawn. Sheep. Bulls. State Sen. James Clark, grinning, wearing a wide-brimmed hat and holding an ear of corn. These are among the images of Howard County displayed on the walls of the Columbia Foundation's conference center in the American City Building on Wincopin Circle. The 53 photographs, some color and some black and white, were taken by Carol Cathcart and Joan Forester, Howard County residents and longtime friends. They were first displayed this month and were featured during LakeFest, the free weekend-long arts and music festival.

Hans and Linda Underwood wait at the end of the front walk to their Abingdon home, escorting visitors to their foyer entrance with ITS natural hardwood flooring. Inside, the openness of a winding oak staircase leads to a loft and a home office that features a cherry wood wraparound desk. "We need more wall space," Linda says, laughing. Hanging frescos from Italy, framed prints from Greece and family photos adorn every available space. Linda, 52, and her husband, Hans, 54, a technology consultant at Loyola College, purchased their Harford County home in 1997 after living in Heidelberg, Germany, for 19 years.

You can go for blocks around in any direction in this staid enclave of tidy brick Georgian Colonials and no pig.But here on the porch of the home of Denise Tomlinson and her husband Paul Gorman stands a 250-pound cement hog, surveying the garden and smiling a Mona Lisa-type smile."

Something is causing a stir in the kitchen: a -- of spice in the form of color. Just as herbs and spices bring out the subtle flavors of a dish, so color can add a welcome zest to what is the heart of many homes.In the kitchen, color can be the same catalyst it is in other rooms. It adds personality, style and feelings of comfort and warmth that may not make cooking easier, but might make it more fun.In recent years, color hasn't been much of a story in kitchens. White has been the dominant choice in cabinets, interpreted in traditional styling or modern frameless fronts unadorned even with hardware.

MIAMI BEACH -- Guests at the Leslie Hotel in the Art Deco District in Miami Beach must think they have been dumped in the middle of a rainbow gone a little haywire.Beds are dressed in hot pink dust ruffles. Purple and turquoise spreads are accented with huge pink pillows. Headboards may be yellow, orange or purple, but they aren't real -- they're painted on the wall.Windows sport wide bands of color and are adorned with mini-blinds in different colors; yellow next to orange cozying up to pink.

We recently installed French doors leading to an enclosed porch that serves year-round as a space for relaxation and casual dining. We're thinking of refurnishing the porch, which has plain wood flooring. What sort of pieces and finishes would make the room cheerful and easy to maintain?Wicker and rattan, in combination with sisal area rugs, represents one popular design direction you might consider pursuing. It results in a laid-back, semi-outdoorsy look that could be just right for your situation.

Jonathan Leshnoff's office at Towson University couldn't be much more colorless -- unadorned white walls; dark, standard furnishings; a portable keyboard against one wall reinforcing the stark dominance of black and white in the room. But it's here that the composer creates the colorful, emotionally active music that is bringing him more and more national attention. A case in point is Leshnoff's new Violin Concerto, a meaty mix of drama and poetry, energy and repose, that vividly exploits the coloristic possibilities of the solo instrument and the orchestra.
