In the Mood: January 2017

Happy New Year! With a new year, comes opportunity– a clean slate, if you will. A new year is filled with promise, possibility, and the chance to make of it what we choose. For me, there is no better color to represent the dawn of a new year– a blank canvas, than crisp, pure white. Few things are as chic as a neutral palette in a home and you can seldom go wrong with classic white in your wardrobe. I’ve pulled together some of my favorite images of white architectural details, interiors, and fashion, along with some of my favorite quotes to get us thinking about the opportunity that comes with having a clean slate as we welcome 2017.

I always find the beginning of the year to be incredibly energizing and motivating. I plan to spend the day focusing on my personal and professional goals for 2017 and getting into a positive frame of mind.  What will you do with your clean slate this year? Whatever your goals, I wish you each good health, happiness, and success in 2017!

  1. Thank you for creating a post that is all about my new Naples, Florida home color palate! Is there anything more relaxing to the soul and spirit then creamy whites and quartz crystals 🙂 ?
    Love and light,
    Peace, Prosperity and Pleasure!
