Fleeting Summer…How to Make it Linger

posted by Stephanie R. Richards

 

To see the Summer Sky
Is Poetry, though never in a Book it lie -
True Poems flee.       ~Emily Dickinson

 

The last weekend of summer is upon us but who really wants to see it go?  The weather has been extraordinary, warm and enveloping with cooling breezes. It seemed well crafted, from hydrating rain to the bright night skies, illuminating moons and twinkling stars. It has been simply wonderful.
To savor this feeling and to pay homage to the season it seems appropriate to bring in flecks of the outdoors.  We are inspired as we  look for visuals for a client’s beach home.  The “beach-y”  sun bleached look is the spring board for this blog post, a neutral palette with organic elements, texture, with pops of life, fresh color, living things, flowers, fruit, nature.
Lime washed brick, sisal rugs, reclaimed wood boards, plants in ceramic containers, crisp linen all help to evoke lasting summer. This look is simple, clean and classic.  It can be the neutral foundation for any season.
We are approaching a transitional period, now is the perfect time to let go and embrace this calming style.
