I know a lot of you like to change out your things for the seasons. I don’t generally do that because you have to store so much stuff when it’s not in use. But when you find things on sale, then you do crazy things. I really didn’t intend to buy anything, but at Round Top some of the vendors mark things down at the end of the show so they don’t have to take it all home. Well it worked for me.
So here’s what my room looked like a few short weeks ago.
And here’s my change for the summer. It’s a cheery toile with lavender and a chartreuse green.
It’s fun to add some color to the house. I know I used to have very loud color all over my house, then I went all neutral. And now I’m slowly adding some pattern ever so slowly here and there. I actually bought this for the mountains, but I’m enjoying the change in here.
At the same booth I found these sweet lavender and green pillows. They just said ‘summer’ to me, so I grabbed them also.
Here is what these chairs usually look like.
Oh yes change is good.
The other linens are in my closet, so I can change it all back whenever I want.

Your linens are beautiful!!! Your bedroom is gorgeous. I went to Roundtop for the first time this Spring. I wish I could have stayed for the last days, because I heard that is when there are a lot of good bargains. Have a great weekend!!!

Beautiful!…I love the lavender and green….I just saw a potting bench painted a beautiful shade of orchid and she used apple green accents…love that color combination.

Yes change is good, even if simply moving pieces about as you do often enough changing the mood seasonally.
Your touch of colour adds all the rightness to what’s to come through summer days.
Always a beautiful visit here….love your floors as well, such a grounding place of starting point in your room.

I love changing out fabrics seasonally! In my home I change bed covers, window coverings, and throw pillows. It is inexpensive and very satisfying. It is like going away on vacation.
I quilt looks so pretty and pillows are also so pretty and perk up the space for summer. I love the new lamps and shades also. I was listening to the podcast and you were talking about bed linens , do you have any suggestion on where to get look for linen bedding, looking for bed skirt for my queen bed. You have me sold on wanting to try linen.

Love the summer look. I like color in my rooms. I use whites with yellow, pinks and switch out to deeper reds and toile for the winter months.
