White is one of my favourite colours in the home. When I picked out homeware for our wedding registry, white was a common theme. From kitchen to bathroom goodies (yes, even a bathroom mat!), I had white-something for most items. Of course there were other ‘me’ colours as well – sage, duck egg, grey, stone, ivory – but lots and lots of white. There’s something about white that is so classic and timeless – it never really goes out of fashion. When you’re starting out in your first home, you can kinda go trigger-happy with your purchases, but there are some good ol’ basics that have stood the test that time and are simply staple items in any home.
