Even still...we do tend to associate white with summer. Doesn't white look great on tan skin? Yes, I still I have a 'thing' for being tan. Yes, I know the sun causes skin cancer. I'll never get over it. I'm not out laying in the sun slathered in baby oil all day either and I make my kids put sun block on.
But I still love it. (and for the record, I think most fake tans look ridiculous)
But I digress. (it's my nature to digress...but isn't the journey more fun when you take the digressions?)
Where was I? Summer...tans...oh yes, White...
Here are some lovely inspirational rooms of white decor. You'll know how I generally feel about white walls if you've been paying attention to my blog much. But I do see white rooms that I really like. I'm just in not much in favor of it when it's done only because there's no imagination on the part of the home-owner, apartment dweller, etc. (though to be fair, many many landlords won't let you paint - I had to have white walls in several of my prior apartments - did you know you can "wallpaper" with a mixture of starch and water using fabric? I did that in one of my apartments, it turned out much better than expected. I always try to pass that tip along to apartment dwellers who aren't allowed to paint).
I digressed again didn't I?
|I really really love this. I could have used this as an example of how to do pastel's well. There's just the little's hint of pink in the pillow on the chair. I adore the pale powder blue on the mirror edge. Just lovely.|
|one thing I will say about white rooms is that they can be so gosh darned cheerful don't you think? and my favorite flowers are on the table here...LOVE peonies.|
|I'm probably unduly influenced by the hermes throw blanket and the great lime green, but this room is very understated cool.|
|so much to love. all the accent colors work in perfect harmony. fabulous lamp, awesome lampshade, adorable pillows.|
|this is some crazy business. but it's some COOL crazy business.|
|you can't resist those yellow chairs and that electric blue, don't even try.|
|love love love|
|admittedly, i feel it needs a little pop of color, but i'm still drawn to the simplicity of it (and I kinda dig that grass centerpiece too)|
|love the chairs, but in think the black chandelier makes it.|
|how much is there to love here? mucho mucho (and isn't that yellow chair adorable?)|
