Happy Thursday! My kids have two days of school left before summer vacation and I am so ready! I’m looking forward to sleeping past 6, not packing lunches, and spending our days by the pool. Speaking of sleeping in, I recently made some summer bedroom changes that I want to share.
Summer Bedroom Changes: Bedding
I removed our beloved flannel sheets when it first started warming up, but I only recently changed out the duvet. I try to keep our windows open for as long as possible in the summer, so light bedding is a must. Removing the comforter from the duvet helps. We use a lightweight cotton blanket with the duvet and a quilt at the end of the bed for cooler nights. The shibori shams were made with a shibori kit.*** The duvet cover is the Pottery Barn Asher Duvet.
The nightstands are an IKEA hack that are inspired (blatantly copied) from Hearts and Sharts. The drawer pulls are vintage Etsy finds. I bought the lamps at goodwill and rewired them because they were weird. The larger mirrors are thrifted and the round one is from Home Goods. The rectangle one is haunted so it’s on my husband’s side of the bed. I’m pretty sure that if you look at it at night, there will be someone behind you. I’ve never had the courage. 😉
The curtains are vintage barkcloth and I love them so much despite them being high waters. They have aqua roses on them, which is pretty much the best thing ever. The wall color is Behr Peacock Tail and I’m so in love with it. It changes with the light. The other walls (including the slanted wall) are painted Benjamin Moore Wickham Gray.
In the corner, sits my dresser. I won’t tell you how often I smack my head on the slanted wall….
The other side of the room
This dresser will eventually go into the closet area. The closet area is a disaster so we won’t be seeing it today. It’s to the left of the long dresser. It’s currently empty.
I love the skylights in my bedroom so much. Eventually, a bergere chair will go here. It needs to be reupholstered, but I’m trying to work up my courage to start it. I just ordered new foam for the chair so maybe I’ll start it soon.
And looking back at the bed. A ceiling fan is a must in our house. I love the air, but even more, I need the noise. One day, I really want to replace that whole wall with windows to look out at the forest.
The view from my bed is of my vintage art collection. I add new pieces as I find them. I love wonky florals with moody backgrounds the best. Flowers always make me smile, but they seem especially appropriate in the summer.
