Monday Moodboard #12 - Shades of White
Winter is drawing to a close here in Australia and I really felt the need to play with shades of white. White is such an incredible colour. It's often associated with purity, fresh starts, a clean slate. However this colour has real depth. It can be clinical and stark like the white of a doctor's uniform; it can be crisp and fresh like new fallen snow; it can be rich and inviting like the cream on top of fresh milk or the golden ivory of silk sheets, or it can be warm like the coziness of a ball of wool or the scorching heat of sand on a hot day.
A lot of people crave a lot of white in their decor or wardrobe. It's uncomplicated and can soothe the senses in it's simplicity. I actually get quite unnerved by too much white in my own decor. As you know, I'm a huge colour lover and the lack of colour can be a little alarming to me! As a small child I actually had a recurring nightmare about the colour white! I kept dreaming of nothing but white and ripples upon the surface, like a big white pond of milk. I have no idea what it all meant, but it was quite menacing to my 6 year old brain!!
