White & Natural - Get The Look





Re-create this look


Natural Style


The combination of white with natural tones screams of summer.
Think beach, sand dunes, coral and shells.
Sandy tones remind us of happy days at the beach.
If you are looking to create a warm, casual seaside holiday feel 
- then this is a great combination.
Mix white paint with natural textures
 such as driftwood, seagrass, warm wood tones, white washed floorboards,
natural fibres and chalked finishes
to create a light, airy relaxed oasis.  



 When it comes to fashion it works just as well. 
I am a big fan of natural fabrics like linen and cotton.
They might be a pain to iron 
but nothing beats a crisp, white linen shirt on a hot's summer's day!


 


When wearing white and neutral tones you can afford to go a bit bolder
with your accessories.
Oversized glasses, statement bags and designer shoes can all play their part.

Hi Melissa,

How's the house coming?!!!! I adore all that you posted and I think I recognize the photo too of a cottage in Canadian House and Home magazine and think it is a cottage on the lake just 20 minutes north of us. What could be more serene and beachy than white and natural.
LOVE!
