This past week I have been spending a good amount of time in bed due to a back injury. Thankfully I am on the road to recovery.
The time has given me the chance to really look at my bedroom. My bedroom is currently a white box. The walls are white. The bedding is white.The only contrast is the dark wood furniture.
I wanted to add in some color and interest for the summer.
So I turned to Pinterest.
I typed in “Beautiful Bedroom”.
Oh there truly were so many gorgeous spaces that caught my eye.
I found myself being drawn to a soft layered look.
But with a touch of color.
I love this room. The soft pastels with a punch of teal are lovely. I have thought about wallpapering the ceiling of my attic office in this Hygge & West “Daydream” print. It’s a popular choice.
Over and over I am always drawn to blue.
Toile and French boutis quilts are favorites too.
But this pink was so fun! I think perhaps it might be the stripes that caught my eye.
It’s a fun change versus a traditional pairing of gingham or buffalo check.
This overall look really caught my eye. The soft stripes and florals paired with blue and plenty of white checked off all my boxes.
Until I can locate similar elements for the space I decided to make due with what I had.
I had a pair of plain white euro shams in need of an update.
In my lace stash I found two large star shaped doilies. They were the same design just two different colors.
The Fashionista had a kantha quilt she wasn’t using. I unified the shams and doilies by dying them “Evening Blue”. The color picked up the blues in the quilt. I simply stitched the doily onto the sham.
The blue euro shams and kantha quilt were paired with two happy pink striped shams and a bright green throw pillow.
It’s a fun, temporary look for the summer while I search for true favorites.
Please visit these happy people also showcasing a sunny and bright look.
Have a beautiful weekend!
