We love white in any season, but especially in summer when it’s a wardrobe essential (if not a uniform). In the home, summer whites are crisp and radiant (think pure white slipcovers or just-laundered bedsheets). They’re essential for everyday living—just like a breath of fresh air! Here are some of our favorite fresh summer whites picks: Be a light sleeper. Switch up your bedding with a white matelassé coverlet or quilt. It’s a simple move that will lift your spirits and lighten the overall feel of your bedroom. Make yours modern. An heirloom-inspired bed like Quincy takes a modern turn when painted white. Hand-embroidered Giorgina bedding adds charm. Turn the table. With the look of a flea market find, the Vienna round pedestal table in Brie (a perfect weathered finish!) is well crafted and liltingly lovely. Come into bloom. This enduring White Hydrangea watergarden captures the beauty and spirit of our favorite fluffy blooms—and looks gorgeous all year long. Go coastal. The base of our whitewashed Seneca lamp is covered with hand-woven natural seagrass for an easy, breezy, beachy attitude. Cover up. A white cotton denim slipcover lightens any mood. Here our classic Bennett sofa gets a relaxing “makeover” in the blink of an eye. Update a classic. We simplified the traditional Windsor chair for our Ethan Allen | Disney collection. White paint makes the Steamboat chair even more modern. *For more beautiful inspiration, check out our Muses book here.
