With the hot weather finally here, white feels right. You may want to don your tennis whites or white jeans daily because they make you feel so put together.
From wardrobe to decorative accessories, the crisp, cool, feel of white makes everything light and airy. Mix it with pops of orange and turquoise for an instant jolt or use it alone for simple serenity.

Jardins en Fleur's Alabaster Moorish Garden Stool suggest architectural elements in far off lands.

Looking to wear white too? Like giant pearls, these hand crafted resin beads on a leather cord make a statement. Available through Atlanta's Pieces.

Alabaster Grapes from Jardins en Fleur are a great decorative item that are making a comeback from the 1960's. The stem is made of wood, giving it a realistic look.

I have long thought this tiered table would make the perfect spot for my printer and extra paper. Don't you agree? Get yours from Serena and Lily.

Resembling a swirl of frozen yogurt, the Medium Spiral Vase from Jonathan Adler has an organic shape that looks good enough to eat.

White plates work with anything and always look great. These Neo Baroque Plates from West Elm have an interesting curved edge.

The Ivory Eel and Brass Mirror designed by Flair combines shiny brass with a textural skin for a catchy mod 70's look.

This delicate looking bird's nest orb was designed by Dutch designer Bertjan Pot for Moooi. I have always loved its ethereal quality. From The Conran Shop.

A beautiful wavy marble bowl from Made Goods would look great on an entry table.

The new Piedmont Tall 4 Drawer Chest from Bungalow 5 has clean lines and a Swedish meets mid century sensibility. The shelf at the bottom is a great addition to have an open storage option.

Love the wavy marble bowl. So organic it reminds me of a delicate piece of coral. Thanks for bringing it to my attention.
