Always in the mood for decorating with and wearing white, but especially lately. Not sure why, but after reading the psychology behind the colour white it could have something to do with the change of season, wanting to clear the clutter and get organised..

The Colour White Represents:

Innocence and Purity: White is the beginning of everything, before anything is muddied or thinking is 'coloured'.

New beginnings: White represents the clean slate, helping us through times of stress, and allowing us to put the past behind us and preparing us to move on.

Equality and unity: White represents the positive as well as the negative aspects of all colors. It contains an equal balance of all the colors of the spectrum.

Effects of White:

Impartial: White suggests fairness and neutrality because of the balance and equality of all the colors contained within it.

Rescuer: White rescues us from the dark.

Futuristic: Symbolizing a clean slate, we can envisage anything with white.

Efficient: White is clean and clinical, giving an impression of efficiency and organization.


 Are you in the mood for white?


  1. I had a huge need for white after the birth of my son and at that time we had white floors and I loved them.

  4. I love white. I love white walls-the best for showcasing art. I now like the necklace with the pearl cross. I will keep watching your etsy shop. I saw the pearl cross on a cord in your shop but I like it on the beads.

  5. Beautiful photography. Ilove white also

  6. I love this post! I'm not normally a white person as I like lots of colour but I use it for accent at times. I think I might find some white shells when I'm next at the beach after reading this!

    Best wishes,
