Neutral Retreat

There is something soothing about clean, neutral spaces, like the ones below, and, while I am not sure I could live with such an absence of color on a daily basis, these rooms seem like perfect places for some rest and recuperation.

The white clapboard walls, in the rooms above, convey a sense of a slower-paced life, a feeling that practically begs you to breathe easier. The bedroom below feels more urban than the other spaces, but it still has the same relaxing appearance.

What do you think of these very neutral rooms? Could you live in one all the time or would you prefer such a space only for a temporary escape?

Inspiration Board {Seersucker Summer}

Nothing says summer quite like seersucker; along with linen, it is a quintessential fabric of the season, worn to help battle the heat and humidity of the warmest days. For a summer wedding, a color palette of blue, white, and yellow paired with seersucker elements is perfectly suited for staying cool in the hot, hot sun.
