Let’s face it, summer is here in sunny Florida and it has us wanting to cool things off with the color white.   Does this shade bore you?

Before you turn your nose up to dressing or dec­o­rating with lack of color, keep this in mind…Lack of color in dec­o­rating can be just as dra­matic as any bold hue—on the walls, with fur­ni­ture, even for your floors—white brightens a room, draws the eye out­wards, cre­ating the illu­sion of a larger space, and high­lights every­thing around it.

Most impor­tantly, white can lend itself to any taste or style, tra­di­tional, ultra-​​modern, or some­where in between. Here’s a tip: Warm whites instantly create a mood of com­fort and warmth in a room, as well as helps soften harsh lines, while bright whites give modern, min­i­malist spaces that extra-​​sharp zing.

This Crimped Alabaster Blouse from Anthro­pologie is so beau­ti­fully reflected in the Moroccan styles of both our Punched Metal Hanging Light, $299 by Wun­derley and our Ives Mirror, $2,500. (to see these and all other items visit www​.clay​tongray​home​.com)

As we’ve been flip­ping through our favorite mag­a­zines we have made notes of many of our favorite styles that reflect the design of many of our favorite pieces from CGH.

We love white!
