White is hot this summer. I love white, and it never feels crisper than in the heat of summer. It is so effective at highlighting texture, form and showcasing the colors with it.
Here are some of my favorite uses of white.
This kitchen from Dwell magazine demonstrates how the texture of the wood and wood tile, really pop when paired with white.
House Beautiful, featured these beautiful white rooms, the bedroom is so soothing and inviting and the bath looks so clean.
Look at how the black of doors and the green of the trees pop in this photo from Home and Design.
In this room, also from Home & Design, white is mixed with soft blue, and chocolate brown is used to showcase the items in the builtin bookcases.
Do you want to have this look without committing to an entire room? Try adding a collection of white in one area of your home. I love this pottery from Etsy.

Summer is too short in Maine. I always take the time to freshen, and lighten the look of my house. I want to savor every moment.
Enjoy your summer. I am doing a wedding this weekend hope to have pictures to share soon.
