How To: Decorate with Summer Whites

During the Fall and Winter months, colors in our environment tend to fade as trees lose their leaves and day light hours get shorter and shorter. Thankfully, Summer is the antithesis to all that dreariness and we are absolutely basking in all the vibrancy that Mother Nature has to offer. The sun sets are golden, the flowers are lush and the foliage looks as though someone turned the saturation into overdrive.

With all this color outside, we love the look of crisp white décor as the perfect offset. For some inspiration, we have some suggestions for ways to design with the season in mind.

A Clean and Crisp Bedroom

Pair crisp white sheets with pieces that offer a beachy vibe such as linen, rustic wood and rattan or vines. Bonus points for adding a gorgeous wild bouquet.

Keep the color story simple and seasonal with blond woods, white touches and soft water blue highlights. Mixing and matching chairs would work splendidly as well. Go casual!

Last but certainly not least, during the warmer months we strive to spend as much time outdoors as possible. Deck out your patio with Summer whites that are perfect for lounging and dining. Add a lantern and stay out after the sun sets as the fireflies twinkle away.
