Everyone wants a safe home, but for some among us, behind closed doors there is actually a lot of darkness. That darkness takes the form of family violence and in particular violence against women. Forget the stereotypes, this issue may well be found in areas of social deprivation but make no mistake, it is also there in the smartest suburbs around.
On an extremely personal note, my first husband used to boast and I quote, “that I abuse you everyday but because I do it with words, nobody can see what I do.” So believe me when I say, that even in the most painful of times, there is light waiting to be found and hope at the end of the tunnel. That is why for me, the fact that White Ribbon day is represented by a white ribbon, is so important. www.whiteribbon.org.au
I love white, it is the colour of purity, healing and hope. White light contains within its beautiful spectrum all the colours of the world. Cool whites and warm whites, from polar bears to angel wings, the expression of white in decor is simply endless in its possibilities. It can form a blank canvas on which to express your individuality or create a serene space to hold your new born child.
At Colourfied, we wish everyone can find their way to let the white light in.
