What Houzz contributors are saying:
Style up things you loveWhether it’s reading, fashion or sports, your favourite hobbies have associated paraphernalia, so get one or two pieces up on the wall or on show somewhere you’ll use and enjoy them. Love skateboarding? Get hold of some heavy-duty brackets and hang your board near the front door. If you like illustration, display a maquette, beautiful pencils and paintbrushes on a shelf by your best view or scribbling spot. The geometric bookshelves shown here are in keeping with the style of the crisp space, but add just the right touch of colour and character.
All-white’s all rightIf your view is saturated with a kaleidoscope of rolling green hills, blue water and clear skies, you can’t go wrong with a pure white palette inside. As you can see in this view-enhancing space, a ‘non-colour’ colour scheme offers a striking contrast to the bold hues and natural patterns outdoors, but the cool white backdrop enhances the serene, summery vibe inside too. No fuss, no frills, just clean white walls, low-slung snowy furniture and an off-white rug for a touch more texture.How to work cool, summer whites for easy living
