So I know you are all dying to know what I did to the house while hubby was gone for a week. Well… I didn’t do anything dramatic, (except clean, which trust me, at that point, was pretty dramatic) but I did re-do our master bedroom for summer. After a trip to IKEA while I was in Atlanta for the weekend, I came home with a full bedroom worth of new textiles for summer to give our room a lighter feel.
When transitioning to summer in my home, I focus on making our spaces lighter and airy. We have pretty dark walls in most of our rooms so I try to use textiles and fabrics to brighten up my spaces.
Before: (Terrible photo, I know, this was one of those last minute “dang it, I forgot to take a before” photos.) This look is great for winter but I wanted to brighten things up for summer. You can’t see in this photo, but we had tan black-out curtains.
I have loved this duvet cover for a long time, I’m so glad I could finally make it work in our room. I also changed out tan curtains for white. It is a lot brighter in the mornings but maybe that will help me drag myself out of bed!
I still need to change the lamp shades to white, but over all I’m super happy about our summer look!
What changes do you make in your house for summer?
