The Summer Bedroom

Good Morning!

Since the weather is changing so quickly here in Minnesota my thoughts have turned towards making the house more cozy.  Normally the first place I start is my bedroom.  Out goes the bright and airy spring and summer decor to be replaced with cozy reds. 

Mid-way through changing things up the realization that I had never shared this years look had me replacing everything and holding a quick photo shoot.

Lime green, lots of white and a touch of black were all that was needed to make the room bright and cheerful for the summer.

The  headboard shelf arrangement was keep very minimalistic.
(You can take a look here to see how I made the shelf)

The grouping in the middle gave the arrangement some height and a touch of green.  The artwork is a personal favorite, the hand painted number five is a completed project from the early days of blogging which I still love, and the tiny bell I borrowed from my daughters bell collection.

To finish off the arrangement I place two groupings of vintage clocks and two urns filled with faux ferns. 

Vintage clocks seem to be a staple in almost every arrangement I've done lately - - can't get enough!

The ferns introduced a nice texture, plus I like the contrast against the white.

Hope you enjoyed this impromptu post.  I'm hoping for some time this week to finish changing things up for fall and winter.  I'll be sure to share that also.

Have a great day,
