A Summery Bedroom

Hello everyone!

Well, I did it again.  I changed a few things in my bedroom.  The reason?  Well, since my walls are white and my draperies are neutral, and the bedding is white, it's just so darn easy to do!  I could come up with just about any color scheme I wanted to in here and just by changing a few pillows and accessories it wouldn't cost much.  So, that's what I did in my bedroom for the summer.

This time I added some cherry and pink.  I don't want anything fussy just simple cottage style with a summery feel.  I think I got it.




A simple change of pillow shams with a cherry paisley design  got me off to the right start.


I also added a vintage grain sack with a red stripe to the bench.




On one side table, I added some cherry blossom branches to a pitcher and some books with prayer beads on top.











On the other side table, a simple white crock filled with white hydrangeas.



Adjacent to the bed, is a chair and ottoman covered in a ruffled blanket and some simple pillows.



It feels very summery in here now.



Have a great Memorial Day weekend!

  I hope that you can all take time out of your fun weekend plans to remember those that made the ultimate sacrifice for our country too.

Thanks for stopping by!

Kelly! Looks so inviting! Very calming! Looks great! I like the screen over your bed! Great idea!

Very summery!

I don't have any fresh flowers in our bedroom - the only room without. My side of the bed has a stool that doesn't have space and Steve complains when I "decorate" his side of the bed.

And, Lulu's crate prohibits my having a bench at the foot of the bed. I miss it.

I think you got it just right too! I love the subtle touches of pink. Are those faux cherry blossom branches? They look very real, so I was just wondering. You always have a knack of picking out the perfect looking blooms and arranging them so beautifully. Love your bedroom!

Oh-Kelly- That is so very pretty. What I like about it is that it is summery and bright but doesn't feel overly feminine. It is just perfect for the room! xo Diana
