[ keeping it cool ]

WHEN THE temperature is hot, all you can think of is how to stay cool. And nothing says cool like white interiors. Like me, I'm sure many of you have embraced white slipcovers and know the comfort, freshness and easy-care that they provide (yes, I said easy-care). I know I'll be injecting lots of white into our apartment when we move in. Are you keeping it cool with white this summer?

Such great eye candy! I will putting as much white in my house as I can get away with, having two messy boys and one messy husband. :)

Yes, I'm all about using white. I live in the hot Arizona desert so it really helps keep me feeling cool. Most of my house is white now and I love it. Don't think I could do it if I had small children at home though.

I'm always a fan of white! Unfortunately, temps here are no where near hot, so keeping it cool hasn't been an issue. Sure wish you could send some of your sunshine and warmth my way!

I allll about slipcovers, mine isn't white but I'd sure love one. So crisp and airy and hello, bleach!

Love all the whites....but with my family that spill coffee and red wine mysteriously ....never can go with white! I'm keeping cool with a cold one or two!

I'm not normally a fan of slip-covers...but these are starting to turn me, I think!!

I love white slipcovers. I have a pair of chairs in black and white that I would love to have white covers made for. You're right, white slipcovers make a room cool down.

Although I adore all white, I could never do it in my house - would be destroyed in a nano second with all the kids and dog!! What a great look though!

I don't know about keeping cool (yikes am at "that" age) but I am definitely embracing the white. It is my favorite color... couldn't live without it!

I love the hardwood flooring in the "deer" room. It's so classic. I will be spending my weekend replacing the floors in my master bedroom.

I would love to have white slips, they do look cool and fresh. I know every one says they are easy to care for. I guess I need to bite the bullet and jump in the white pool!! Kathysue
