Lovely! I would love to see a bigger photo of the custom build daybed cum sofa on left wall. That must be such a cozy space to hang out with a book.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to Is Belgian Style the New Shabby Chic?
Check out Benjamin Moore's Linen White paint (seen here). This paint color is a great way to get started on a Belgian makeover. Incorporate vintage textiles. The window treatments here look like they are made from vintage French flour sacks. These sacks are also great for upholstery and throw pillows.
Mike Dietrich added this to Decorating With Antiques: Luxurious Linens
This farmhouse-style living room sports a pair of stylish chairs upholstered in antique linen. I think the only way I could sacrifice my old French sheet to the upholsterer is if it got torn or damaged. Then I’d be delighted to find this new use for it.
Kimberly Collins Jermain added this to What to Know Before You Paint Your Walls White
But for homes that hug the shoreline with ocean views in winter (where the climate has more extreme seasonal temperature shifts, like Maine), white intensifies the chill of the inhospitable sea beyond the windowpanes. One client opted for heavy drapes pulled all winter to shield her family from the million-dollar view, and the moodiness that comes with looking out to a forbidding ocean. Transference, the idea that we feel cold when we see something cold, explains why we identify colors by their coldness or warmth. White is considered the coldest color (in a range of blues, grays and greens), because it reminds us of ice and snow. What we see is what we expect to see (this is a truism of vision and explains why we feel tricked by a magician’s illusions), and color that is associated with something known to be hot or cold can make us feel it.White can still be a solution for a year-round shoreside house where the climate has extreme differences in air temperature and an ever-fascinating view. Select a creamy white that has a small amount of yellow-orange pigment, like California Paints’ DE6141 Salt Box, framing the coolness outside by bringing the architecture forward and visually keeping the ocean at bay. In the summer, when the family is outside more than inside, the soft vanilla will retain its cool in the evening when beachgoers return to relax.
