        The Stated Home added this to Sofa Secrets: All the Reasons to Love LinenMay 23, 2017

        Eco-friendliness. Linen has a reputation for being eco-friendly, and it’s well deserved. Flax is easy to grow without fertilizer or irrigation and it’s naturally resistant to diseases and insects, requiring little use of chemicals. (Compare this to cotton, which uses seven times more chemicals than linen.) Flax uses one-quarter the water that cotton does during processing and produces little waste, as every byproduct is put to use. Even better, linen possesses a natural resistance to bacteria, microflora and mildew, making it a great choice for those with allergies.

        Laura Gaskill added this to Decorating 101: How to Use White RightApr 12, 2016

        How to choose the right white paint. Why is it that the same white paint that makes one room look fresh and crisp can make another seem stark and cold? It all comes down to the light. By working with the natural light in your space, you can find a shade of white that enhances your room’s best qualities.Tips:Before painting a room white, identify its orientation to the sun. Use a clear white paint (neither too warm nor too cool) in rooms that face away from the noonday sun.If you have a north-facing room in an area like New England (with snowy winters), clear white will feel too chilly; try a warmer off-white instead.South-facing rooms (in the Northern Hemisphere; north-facing in the Southern Hemisphere) receive the most intense sun during the day; use a cool white with gray undertones to reduce glare.Guides: What to Know Before You Paint Your Walls WhiteHow to Pick the Right White PaintPaint color: Linen White, Benjamin Moore

        5. A wood stove. This living room has a more refined Belgian or Scandinavian sensibility, but the wood stove adds a practical warm and rustic touch. Is Belgian Style the New Shabby Chic?

        Kimberly Collins Jermain added this to What to Know Before You Paint Your Walls WhiteFeb 19, 2015

        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.

        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.

        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.
