Summer Color and Whimsy in the Master

6.29.2015

Those of you who follow me regularly know I like to change up the bedding on all the beds pretty often. I just can't help it. I love bedding and trying out different looks. It's such an easy way to give the room a new look especially seasonally. Today I'm sharing a new look in the master for the summer with some fun color and whimsy.

This time of year I have to wait till late afternoon to take pictures in this room and then it is flooded with light.

While shopping at the Pottery Barn outlet several weeks ago they were setting this colorful duvet out on the shelves and I just had to check it out. It was also already a good price plus an extra 20% off that day.

I knew the colors would work well with my neutral walls and carpet plus it has the colors in it found in the rest of the house plus the addition of pink. I had picked up the outdoor pillow on a previous trip for the deck makeover and decided to use it here until I need it outside. I love a touch of whimsy in each room to keep things fun and not too stiff and boring.

I even have sandals that match. :)



A bucket of flowers certainly says summer.

Along with a shell.

In the chair I placed a green striped pillow from HomeGoods along with a pillow I already had. The striped one makes me think of an awning.

The striped one goes well with the green in the duvet and the green accents in our bathroom.



The colors in the bedding and pillow also go well with the lamps by the bed. Love when it all works together even though everything was purchased at different times.

So if you can don't stay stuck with the same bedding all the time. Just switch it up for a fresh new look. I actually stuck the comforter with my previous duvet still on it into this new one. Then all I have to do is remove this one when I'm ready.

That's what I call easy decorating.

Happy Monday!

  10. I hope you don't get like 10 of these messages, Google and I have been fighting to publish my comment!! :) I really enjoy watching how you change up your room for the seasons! Is the color of your coverlet ivory or flax? Also, where did you get your bedskirt? I like the way the stripes add subtle dimension to your bed.

    1. Shams are ivory and coverlet is more flax. Bed skirt is many years old from Pottery Barn.
