Cool and Refreshing – Vintage Chic

We’re all enjoying having a ‘proper’ summer this year with temperatures regularly soaring into the mid 20’s, and beyond, day and after day. We are lucky enough to live and work in glorious #Cornwall surrounded by water on three sides kindly giving us refreshing sea breezes to keep us on the move, and lucid! But finding innovative ways of keeping cool has become a British pastime; check out this U-tube clip of a horse enjoying a wallow in a giant paddling pool!

Creating a relaxing and #cool living environment in your home comes in many guises, from your paint palette, down to the type of flooring and furniture you feature. Choose light reflecting tones of white, pale greens, and cool blues for the walls to reduce heat retention, and beautiful natural stone, and ceramic tiled floors are perfect for refreshing hot and tired barefoot tootsies. Add minimal furniture in pretty #pastels, #vintage luxury linens and some #fresh cut flowers, and watch your heat stress levels reduce dramatically!
