With the dawn of a new year, it is always a perfect time to think of life as a fresh white sheet of paper, ready for new scribbles, drawings, thoughts and dreams. Technically a colour without colour, white represents virtue and purity (think of the time-honoured white wedding dress), cleanliness and hygiene (think of the butler’s immaculate white gloves). White is both simple and sophisticated, discreet and daring. White will heighten a sense of space (for example, it is the ideal colour for ceilings) and is particularly reflective. White is the ardent minimalist’s colour of choice and the perfect colour to showcase all other hues.
