I love white – it is one of my favourite colours. Form and texture stand out in white – so here is my rhapsody to the pearly shades. (As usual on this blog – I try to recycle furniture rather than other people’s images. These are all my own).

The regal poise of a carved white lion with his steely glare.
White paperbacks with a carved white stone bookend
A pure white shell on an old wicker basket
