The Warm Whites of Autumn


 

I'm welcoming November with the warm whites of autumn. Ivory, ecru, creams, and parchments. Antique hues for the aging year.



White in the sober tones for an inward season.



An off white welcomes with a comfortable cheer. Never off putting. Ever approachable. 



A pearly white is worldly, and a bit lived in.



As though it's been washed and tumbled a thousand times, and earned its keep.



The quiet whites are so easy to live with. A good foundation for sup or sleep. 



To smooth the ruffles and twines of life.




Bringing beauty to the waning day. And softness to the deepest night.   



Hope there's plenty of cozy white in your November!
Ciao! for now!
