For those not ready to go all out, a few well-placed airy linens in the kitchen and bathrooms also possess a summery, ethereal air about them. Fog Linen and Schoolhouse Electric both offer 100 percent linen and cotton tea towels, dinner napkins, and place mats with subtle patterns and muted colors. “The addition of homespun linens made of natural fibers brings the simplest form of Mother Earth into your home in a functional way,” says Weidenbaum.
Green is good Incorporating greenery is the simplest and easiest way to make your home feel like summer is officially upon us. If you dont have a green thumb, fret not. “Picking a eucalyptus branch and placing it in a simple glass jar can transform a space in an instant,” Weidenbaum says. “This hassle-free plant can last you many more days than store-bought flowers, and its simplicity makes it the go-to centerpiece for your next summer dinner party.”
Venetian plaster walls and antique beams give this new Atlanta home the sense of history that figures so prominently in elegant Southern style. Gracefully turned-wood furnishings including a fainting lounge (what more Southern than that?) join posh but soothing fabrics to increase the elegance. Window treatments are important in the South, and these full panels hang ceiling to floor. But the palette of dreamy cream and taupe with accents of blue and chocolate ensures that all is easy on the eye, an imperative for true elegance.
