Color Cool Down!

I have a major design regret!  I wish that I had Summer exchange pieces to transform my home from Season to Season. I would love to  have slipcovers ready to go and natural woven or some fun hide rugs rolled and ready to bring out when the temp hits 80's!  It's been a muggy week of 90 degrees here in NJ and although my house is physically cool inside it could use that little extra something to have is visibly cool as well. I need to plan for next year to have some fun decor on hand so that when it heats up the room cools down. Here are some lovely rooms that I found. Take note of room color and texture and use of simple pieces mixed in. Enjoy and stay cool.

  1. Nothing is more summery than slipcovers!! So fresh, relaxed and practical. Stay cool and fabulous :)

  2. Fantastic! I admit, it's very hip to have seasonal slip covers. Once you have them it feels like a new home. Do it.....

  3. Gorgeous photos! Since I am not a designer, I never think about changing my decor with the seasons, although I do dream of rooms like these in my fantasy beach house!! Have a great rest of the week, Karolyn! xoxo

  4. Karolyn, I always enjoy your collection of images. These are so soothing and peaceful for summer. That bedroom-swoon! Hope yours is off to a great start. I'm finally on vacation from work and we leave for Portugal and Spain the first of July so life is good right now. Happy summer!

  5. I always knew i would love to have a "summer look" as well! When we do get to go to our beach house it is so refreshing to see that relaxed, slip covered look and you automatically relax! Loved every picture you shared! Have a great day!

  6. Love it and so agree about wanting to lighten up in the summer....guess thats why a beach house is awfully nice:) Love the examples you showed!
