‘Change’…..it’s time for change again.
When the weather starts getting warmer I change all the linens and accessories in my bedroom. The room faces west and receives the hot afternoon sun so my summer bedroom gets the all-white treatment giving both a cooler look and feel.
Layers of white cotton linens on the bed give a ‘cool as cotton’ sensation. I made the duvet cover from 2 sheets that we (hubby and I) brought back from Venice while travelling through Europe many years ago. Hubby carried these king-sized sheets plus 2 cotton tablecloths in his knapsack for a month! (had to throw out some of his clothing to fit them in!!) The cotton chenille fringed bedspread is vintage and originates from the same era as my beloved orange lamps. The cushions from West Elm provide the pop of colour on the bed.
The bergere chair is slipcovered in white cotton and the art above the dresser is exchanged for a white mirror.
My otherwise contemporary home gets a shabby chic makeover in the bedroom. Bring on the summer!
You know I am obsessed with all things white!! Love this bedroom! Let’s swap!
Love white/grey stripes also! Calming all year.
wow this is so neat and tidy! My room’s a train wreck compared to this….
I like the simple window treatment and the greenery with its reflection. Whose art is on the walls?
I love it!!!
So pretty and so edited… where in the world do you keep all of your stuff? Boy, do I need to purge! Also interested in the artist(s)
I do the same thing! Switch up in the summer. Did it just last week with shams, summer quilt and even the lamp shades. Bright, fresh and white. Your room is lovely.
Would love to see photos of your summer ‘makeover’. Are they on your blog? Could not find them.
No. Not blogged…but you have me thinking. Perhaps I’ll post some. Thanks.
This looks beautiful! I had a white duvet for a week before my cat ruined it. =(
