I like the classic look of an all white bed in any season.
Nothing can outshine the beauty of fresh white vintage linens.
I first showed the master bedroom dressed in white for winter.
But the whole mood and look of a bedroom can be altered with just a change of a bed cover.
And a few perky details.
Here was the master bedroom of spring.
I was going for a more elegant tone when I used this embroidered cover in neutrals.
A simple woven lampshade at the bedside table worked well for that mood.
But what I really like is the vintage glass base. I think I am somewhat "lampshade challenged" because I have the hardest time finding a shade that I like that actually fits. It's an ongoing quest since I almost never buy a new lamp with a shade. I always prefer vintage, and the shade you get, if at all, is a crap shoot. Or just plain cr*p!
My summer solution is a very simple one. I draped a plain shade with a large crocheted doily. Easy to change for yet a different look when the mood strikes me, as it always does. And fancier than the plain white shade which wasn't quite holding it's own.
A vintage tissue holder brings in a bit more "frou" for a time too.
Dotted Swiss chiffon and lace.
Some older season mix and matched cottage prints by RL keep things casual for now.
Rachel and Ralph blend well for a cheery mix, don't you think?.
As the season changes, I'll want more of a change too.
Good thing it's so easy to do!
Does your bedroom change much with the season?
I can feel one coming on again already!
Back to school week for a lot of us.
I hope it's a good one for you!
