White is Monday's color

If you know me, you know my favorite color is white. It calms me.

White is the color of purity.
White means kindness.
White is Monday's color.
White daisies are a symbol of loyal love. (That is so sweet - I did not know that!)

Strictly speaking, white is not a color, but the manifestation of the presence of all color - the complete energy of light. It stands for wholeness and completion. In many cultures it represents openness and truth. 

Put some white in your life when you want: 
  • to clear clutter and obstacles away
  • to start a fresh beginning
  • to bring about mental clarity

Friday night I was reminded of another reason why I love white:
Spiders and other crawling things are visible.
(Disclosure: Heather G. -  if you are reading this you will not want to see what I am going to show you next!)

Friday night I went in to my room to get ready for bed and when I turned on the light, THIS went running (and I mean running!) across my bed. Can I tell you how grateful I am for my white bedding that allowed me to see him? I was even more grateful that I was able to catch him. I promise you I would not have been able to sleep in that bed if I hadn't. As it was, I spent an hour vacuuming underneath and all around my bed - so hoping he didn't have a family anywhere near. Yikes.

This is a better image to leave you with ...
Happy Monday everyone!

White is very calming, I agree. Lovely images to make your case.

Oh my goodness Sherri - I wouldn't have been able to sleep at all. I've woken up a few times thinking that something is crawling on me - yikes! White is calming and I really don't have a ton of it in our house - we've got lots of color.

That is why I sleep in white sheets every night, makes me calm. They found a snake in our backyard last week and ever since then my husband has to water my plants.......totally understand. Thank you for the sweet comment. XO

I've been wanting to do a post on white rooms for awhile. These are some of the best white rooms I've seen! Great picks, sweetie!

White is my color, too. Especially in decor. In fact, I'm painting my night stands today... so excited!

White is alright with me. There is something very calm about white....that is until you see a spot or a spider!
