White on White

White on White

I seem to always return to White. It's a palette cleanser after the blues and greens of Summer, the golds of Autumn (remember I live in Canada) and the jewel tones of Winter. The secret is - and really, it's no secret - to use lots of form and texture when you go with an all-white palette. What is lost in colour, is compensated for in other ways. Tone-on-tone texture is the antidote to my love-hate relationship with colour. I stay up half the night installing everything in my cupboard that screams colour, only to wake up the next morning to restore said room to its quiet, neutral glory. C'mon. You do it too. Colour makes me anxious. And yet, it calls my name. So here are a few ways to compensate for your (my) colour issues. And, when you think about it, white is equitable. It's all colours, right?
