white out

The white heat embers of summer make me long for doses of white.

White as a texture - reminds me of white coral
found on etsy here.
White is a relief.
White candles. One or many.
White marble mosaics.

White towels. White, clear sparkling cool water.
White objects provide a certain cool factor.
White slipcovers.
White washed floors.
White vanities.
White bowls.
White tees.
White shirts.
White ice.

Is it me, or is it the heat that is inspiring a white out here?

Enjoying summer one day at a time. Love the sight of freshly washed linnens, towls and sheets on the washing lines on a summer day.

Love all of your cool whites. I use a lot of white-it's just so easy! Then bursts of color here and there make it fun! Stay cool in your summer whites.

Love all of your cool whites. They are so easy to work with and beg for splashes of color. Enjoy all of your summer whites!

Yes, this is going to be one of those weeks where I wish Tricia Foley could turn it all white for me!

It is supposed to be hot here today...first time this summer, and I may be wishing for some cool white myself at the end of the day. Beautiful collection of images, it shows that white doesn't have to be boring! Janell

I agree Patricia, the whites of the beach, coral, seashells, linen, and flowers all add to the cooling of the season of heat!

Yesterday in this heat wave I was wondering why I dont have more white clothing. Oh! Because I have a toddler lol!

A breath of icy, fresh air - all this white is perfect for this hot summer's day. Hope you stay cool as a white, winter's day...

I have always loved the look of white on white. Those mosaics and the tile wall are amazing. How pretty.

I just last week changed my bedding to a white coverlet (with some green accent pillows) and when I walk into our bedroom it looks crisp and summery & happy!

Debra said...

PvE~ Have left two comments~ but alas blogger appears to be picky this morning. Perhaps now this one will be a GO! Love the cooling summer whites!

White is so elegant. I am always a white person first and foremost, and in summer especially white linen is a great pleasure.

I wish white jeans were more flattering- they dont look so great on me. Maybe I need to go shopping to find the right pair of white jeans :)
