"Sweet Summer Dreams".....

Monday, July 11, 2011

Bedrooms should always be the "ultimate retrea"t...but during the warm weather months sometimes our indoor spaces are somewhat forgotten about.
With just a few decorating changes to our "Summertime Bedrooms" we can change all that....& create rooms that we can't wait to spend a few hours in on a hot afternoon or retreat to at the end of a long day at the lake.

For me it is all about "classics"....here are my suggestions...

*add fabrics that are crisp & cool, such as fresh white cottons & striped tickings

* touches of anything that speaks of the water....shells, boats, coral, fishing paraphernalia, etc.

*shades of blues, greens & of course red....

* items that remind us of vacations spent at grandma's lake cabin,.... or a friend's beach cottage, patchwork quilts, embroidered pillowcases, & charming old one-of-a-kind lamps

* & lots of books....classics, mysteries & of course a few old paperback romance novels....

Most importantly though, our summer bedrooms should be ones where not only the past is represented, but ones that allow us time each day to make new memories. Create spaces where children & adults alike can play board games, read books & fill journals with entries of lazy summers spent together with family & friends....not to mention fall asleep to the sound of crickets & the hum of the fan.
