today's mood: WHITE

"God paints in many colours;
but He never paints so gorgeously,
I had almost said so gaudily,
as when He paints in white."
-- G. K. Chesterton


What is it about a new year,
a blank slate,
an open calendar,
and fresh hope
that energize us at OG so much
this time of year?

Maybe it's this blanket of snow
or these short days,
but I am in the mood for
the purity of white right now.

White has such a sexy innocence.

A refined simplicity.
An understated elegance.

Years ago, white walls and interior design
were not friendly with each  other,
but now!

Now white is fresh and modern
and sooooo cool again.

It's not just for summer either,
and it's most definitely
not just for
playing it safe.

Consider the myriad shades of white
and how they work so well together.
Do you ever pair white and ecru?
It's a combo made in heaven.


“White covers a multitude of sins.”
-- Jonathan Milne
A group of white objects massed
can be dramatic and fabulous.
And if you are lucky enough to have
dark hair (ha!), I bet white looks
stunning on you.

Did you know that white affects us physically?

According to Kate Smith of Sensational Color,
    *Aids mental clarity
    *Encourages us to clear clutter or obstacles
*Evokes purification of thoughts or actions
 *Enables fresh beginnings

Let's clear the clutter.
Let's purify the thoughts.
Let's welcome new beginnings!


Think of a white flag...
a truce!
I know you are feelin white by now.
Even lies are better when they're white.
Whatever. Not a good example.

White is clean, not just the absence of color,
and is an emblem of the divine.

It is the color of light,
and I am sending out some
to you right this moment.
