Summer has been so hot so far, I just felt the need for less and cooler, at least in the look of things. White always looks cool, so I've added a little to the Living room. For an airy appearance, I also removed the ottoman and area rug. More open space makes a small room look larger and for some reason more airy and cooler.
The white sofa and chair, along with white lamps give a cooler look for starters. I just needed to add more.
A white tablerunner breaks up the dark wood of the coffee table. For an uncluttered look, I left the floral arrangement, but I removed the tray holding the stack of books and replaced the 3 candlesticks with just one hurricane.
A throw adds some white to this side of the room and enhances the white of the shells in the table vignette.
Even the white in the little lamb pictures adds a cooler look.
A lighter look for the Dining table also.
A few white tulips and some creamy magnolia flowers brighten the floral arrangement.
I also replaced the darker table runner with one I made with some extra fabric that matches the living room pillows.
This didn't do a thing to lower the temps outside, but it does look cooler inside.
