simple white

After another night with no air conditioning, I thought I would focus on simple white things, because they give me the illusion of being cool.

a simple white shawl and a rustic stool.

a white chair for reading.

a white breakfast nook filled with white flowers

a white space for an afternoon nap on the porch.

at the end of a very hot day, a lovely white bedroom with large windows to bring in the ocean breezes and a ceiling fan to swirl them around you as you sleep.

and just in case you were thinking I'm not cool, my granddaughter told me she thinks I  am very cool and she is pretty sure her brother does, too. 

Ahhhhh!!! High praise from the perfect source.

I am feeling cooler already.

  7. Oh Laura! THANK YOU for your visit. It has been a long time. I've been off in the fashion side of Blog-ville and have neglected you. How are you? I have looked over the past couple of weeks on your posts. Too bad the a/c is on the fritz. I would be DYING!!!! These lovely whites are cooling and refreshing. (hug)

  8. The porch is beautiful and I'd love to sit there and watch the birds while sipping a cup of tea. (Although it's so hot here, it would probably have to be ICED tea!) Hope your a/c is up and running soon!!

  11. Hi Laura,
    My home is neutral with lots of white. I agree! It's cool, clean, calming.. and versatile. I love the patina in the first image. I'm trying to find a shutter with a similar feel to use in my family room. Beautiful images!

  12. Laure, what beautiful images you shared. My heart goes out to you with having no air right now. It is still hot and humid here. It is supposed to get somewhat better by Wednesday.
