Cooling things down


I've been drawn to more and more colder hue rooms lately; mainly turquoise. It's usually a staple color most summers and I can see why. It reflects a cool, refreshing glass of water and a chilling poolside you lay by in the sweltering heat.


All of these interiors are just glorious to me. The crispness and spaciousness of them all would be ideal to walk in after a day out in the sun. They're all a space to place your bare feat on and lounge for a while.


I think I could spend my whole day on this covered patio.

What color interiors have you cooling things down this summer?

I've been obsessed with cool whites lately. I'm planning my room for my new apartment next year, and it's mostly white and coral.

I absolutely agree. We recently repainted our bedroom in our new house and changed it from a dark brown to a cool, antiquey aqua hue. It's Valspar's Sparkling Lake. And we went with a greige for our bathroom walls. Both are so soothing to me.

I'm hosting a giveaway this week if you'd like to stop by my blog! :)

Turquoise and white is always easy on the eyes
and fresh looking. I'd settle for this color combo any day.

Love the colors. The photos are just so pretty and I am sure will inspire many people who see them. My daughter just did her room in a beautiful aqua with an aqua metallic overlay on one wall, and the other three walls in a gray...turned out so beautiful, clean, tropical, yet very warm and inviting. And, we painted our great-room in "Thunderstorm", which is a gray with a very slight green undertone, which is barely noticeable, and have all teal, mango, and honeydew accents...this time of the year is so inspirational.
