I fell in love with the combination of white and all of it's personalities. I started collecting a few pieces of vintage linens, noticing some had aged with a soft creamy glow or blue gray cast. But weren't these still white? Little did I know that I would start on a journey of studying white and all of it's simple excentricities.

I noticed the interplay of "color" when a vintage linen piece was monogrammed in a thread shade similar but not exactly. Just a hint of difference.
