I open my eyes. Sun rays are gradually penetrating the tulle window curtains. They are shimmering like little sparks in the creases of white linen. Snow dancers making their solo for a second. I smile.

When I sit by the table, the smell of morning coffee still lingers in the air.

It provides a perfect background for grey, pastel beige, powder pink or light blue. White embellished with gold is an exquisite match. The crowning of minimalist subtlety.
