Summer Style: Beachy White Done Right

All-white sometimes gets a bad rap as being stark and harsh, but these rooms are anything but. Here, popsicles are not just tolerated, they're encouraged.  These are the easy, warm whites of summer.  

These rooms aren't aiming for perfection; instead, they embrace the rustic: whitewashed planks, chipped paint, and multiple shades of white layered together to create a room that can stand up to (gasp) living, sandy feet and all.
