If you go to bed tonight, wear a white pajama, for the ancient Greeks knew already it will ensure you nice dreams.
Thinking of white as a symbol, it’s interesting that we in the West believe it’s the right colour for brides to wear, whereas in for instance Vietnam and China, it’s the colour for mourning, and in India the colour to be worn by widows (brides wear red). ‘Our’ angels wear white dresses and also the ancient Persians believed all gods were dressed in white only. Holding a white flag is a universal symbol for truce, but being ‘white hot’ could mean you are in a state of intense anger.
Both in symbolism as well as visually, white creates contrast, that much is clear. Used in combination with other colouls, like red, makes them look brighter and really stand out. This is the reason I focussed on white as one of the colours during my last trip to India.
