Close your eyes and imagine for a moment you’re in some kind of Narnia dream. But instead of walking through the wardrobe into a snowy, forest world, you actually step out onto a beach. Yes, you can see blue waters in the distance. But what overwhelms you most about this place is the brightness of it all: The sunny light and the white, white sandy shore. It’s quiet, except for the slight rushing of waves, and you’re warm (but not hot). Something about it is almost cozy. The whiteness wraps you up like a warm blanket and an open fireplace in the winter.
That dreamy-like state is what I’d love my home to feel like all year round. Below is some inspiration, and here’s some pinspiration, if you’re feeling the same way.
