We're getting to that part of the summer where you stop being excited because it's warm outside and start being exhausted because it's really, really hot outside. How to deal? Well, you could immerse yourself in a pool somewhere, or pull down all the shades and crank the A/C and never leave your apartment. Or you could feast your eyes on these beautiful rooms, in some of the most beautiful shades of blue, and think soothing thoughts. Ahhhh.
