Summer is all about color and fun and I’ve been attempting to infuse these two elements into my home room by room. Although I love white I have to admit I’m enjoying a few jolts of color. As part of today’s “Fun in the Sun” blog hop with 10 other bloggers, I decided to share my farmhouse bedroom with you, all decorated for summer! At the end of this post, you’ll find the links to the other participating bloggers for even more summer inspiration. And tomorrow … come back and link up your own summer projects AND enter to win $250 in cash!! Without further adieu, here’s my little ole farmhouse bedroom …
A few days ago I posted photos of this bedroom and sadly realized it was too blah for the summer.
That’s when I ordered the new Laura Ashley quilt from Joss and Main you see here.
It wasn’t in the best of shape so I painted it white.
I added finials to each post and then painted the whole thing white. I like it so much better now.
Plus I think when you pair color with white, it makes the color stand out even more.
This one was already painted white when we bought it.
But it didn’t look quite right when I placed it at the bottom of the stairway.
It fit this space just right! I knew I’d find a home for it eventually.
The mirror in the corner was hung on an old farm door that used to be my friend’s coffee table.
In the summer, I like to keep the windows open as much as possible. It has to get pretty hot and humid before I’ll turn the air conditioning on. I made the floor-length curtains from white muslin fabric and added pom-pom trim to the valance.
I grew weary of it so I painted over the text and hung my botanical print banner.
Then I stretched a piece of twine from end to end on the painted barn board.
Now I can simply swap out the artwork depending on the season.
I love it!! I found it by chance at Target a few days ago and knew it would look cute in here.
I used stuff I already had and what I did buy was on sale … except for that cute little lamp!
