Summer Country Bedroom

Hello everyone!

Now that is officially Spring, I thought I would share with you some changes I made to my bedroom that give it a Summer feeling.  I know it's not Summer yet, but hey, my bedroom is ready for it!  In fact, it's pretty much ready for it year round, since this is my favorite style of bedroom.   

Some of you also asked what I did in my bedroom after removing some items to use in other rooms.  I will show you that as well.

For me, a summer country bedroom must have the following:  

(fluffy white bedding)


Since I pulled my European sized shams off the bed to place on the sofa, the standard ones from the sofa moved to my bed!  Easy peasy!


(chippy painted furniture)


(Chair and ottoman or somewhere to relax and read)


(pretty casual flowers) 


(checked drapes or some other country pattern in the room somewhere)


And you can't go wrong with a basket with extra pillows and blankets at the foot of the bed.


So, that is my summer country bedroom (in the Spring)!  

What is your favorite style of bedroom?

Thanks for stopping by.

It looks nice and fresh for Spring! I love white bedding too. That's good that you could just swap the sofa pillows with the ones on the bed. I love it when things work out nicely like that. :) Have a great weekend!

I love a Restoration Hardware or Ralph Lauren inspired bedroom. Warm and Inviting is what I go for. I love the white and lightness of yours.

I do love your white bedding...My little Molly would make little prints I'm afraid.

You entire house is magazine lovely and I would be happy to just move in.

In the meantime I'm happy with my frilly blue bedroom and ruffled curtains.

Your bedroom is so pretty and cozy...love the white bedding!! I just got some white curtains from Ikea to put in our bedroom. I want them to puddle on the floor, but am afraid that my little puppy will chew on them...so I might have to hem them or wait until she gets out of her puppy stage to put them up.

It looks cool and comfy - perfect for summer! I don't know if I have a favorite style bedroom, but I do wish I had white fluffy bedding!

Vickie @ Ranger 911 said...

Your bedroom is lovely, Kelly! My favorite style would be....a finished bedroom! So many projects yet to finish.

You can never go wrong with an all-white bed, especially in summer. This looks like a cloud1

Your bedroom is very pretty, Kelly and so nice and light for Spring. Your reading chair looks like a nice cozy spot too. I wish we could have a white duvet but our chocolate Lab always ends up there. I make do with white sheets and try and chase her off the ecru coverlet.

For me, a bedroom should be serene. I tend to lean toward neutrals for bedrooms. I adore your chippy dresser, and your bedding says 'come lay down...NOW!'

Oh how pretty! I love the chippy table and chair. This makes me want to go beat up my furniture a bit :)
