The past few days have been pretty steamy ones. As Charleston temperatures soar, we tend to retreat inside for relief. So when it comes to decor, we have the cool color white in the forefront of our minds. Here are a few design ideas inspired by the color white that remind us of airy, chill spaces that make for perfect havens from the hot and humid outdoors.
