“Many think that white is

the absence of colour.


It is not.


It is the inclusion of all colour.


White is every other colour that exists, combined.
”

—Neale Donald Walsh

The pure simplicity of white is a versatile and ever-popular base for any environment.
 It has the ability to increase the feeling of space in a room.

Rooms —

white can be used in any room.
 Crisper, cooler whites will create a more lively atmosphere while warmer whites are cozy and welcoming.



Home Decor Styles —

any style, but very dominant in Coastal, Hamptons, Scandinavian, Shabby Chic and French Provencial.



Mood —

warm or cool tones for Creative and Wanderlust and warmer tones for Nostalgic and Serene, cool tones for Energizing.



Sanctuary Tips —

very suitable for a sanctuary space, although best to stick to the warmer tones to create a restful feel as cooler, starker whites can be quite energizing.
