All the doors and windows are flung open to the light and cool air of a summer morning. There's nothing more energizing than this early part of the day. A little later the doors and shutters will be closed against the heat. And it will be considerable, at around ninety eight degrees by afternoon.
We wait all year for this particular angle of light to flood the rooms. It brings out all the subtle textures of a country house in summer.
I love the natural feel of a bundle of weeds, an old weathered washboard, and a stack of wicker baskets.
White linens soften the look of a room full of collected objects and furniture.
A smaller dining table gives us more breathing space for the summer.
Bucket, bench, and basket weave screen.
The new white paint on this door reflects the light so much better too.
Favorite objects line the top of this old cupboard.
(That vintage folding table gets lots of use!)
Cookbooks and a zinc tub on top of an old painted American primitive cupboard.
I haven't changed up my sideboard in quite awhile. Oh well! So much more to do this time of year. . . .
Hope you're loving June!
