It is my pleasure today to join a group of my blogger friends who are sharing our Spring bedroom touches.
Our master bedroom is, as is much of our house, definitely a work in progress and is constantly changing. If someone were to ask what my decor style is, I honestly don’t know how I would respond … maybe vintage, mixed with new, mixed with farmhouse, mixed with French Country, mixed with thrifted decor?
Our current master bedroom set up is vintage French Provincial furniture from most likely the late 60’s or early 70’s. It belonged to my grandparents so it is special to me. I’ve added a couple of additional French Provincial pieces I scored off Marketplace or Craigslist, and painted all of them with Annie Sloan old white chalk paint and edged them with dark and black wax. The hardware got a Tarn-X bath and presto, our Master bedroom furniture was refreshed. Everything is accented with gold or brass, so when my husband and I “gave each other” our new Samsung Frame TV for Christmas, the frame of the TV tied in perfectly with all the vintage brass accents.
I love how these pieces allow me to change the room with the seasons. During the holidays I played up the gold and added pops of red and now that Spring time is here, I’m going to accentuate the lightness of the paint color, highlight the gold and brass with other vintage gold accents and bring on the florals!
I think Monet wrote this quote for me: “I must have flowers, always and always..”
When I think Spring, my mind naturally goes to flowers. I’m a bit of a flower junky anyway so that’s an easy touch for me. Truth be told I usually have either faux or fresh flowers in my bedroom year round. But this go-round some white hydrangeas in a vintage white pitcher fits the bill. The top of our dresser is always a great place to add seasonal accents, which I guess will always include florals, right?
The Scent of Spring … perfect ambiance.
Smells are everything to me. I have a super-duper sense of smell. My family all knows that if you don’t know what to get me for a gift, get me a candle or anything scent-related. I always enjoy florals, not food smells I tell them. Food smells ONLY during the holidays I say, LOL. I adore this Anthropologie candle on my grandmother’s vintage mirror tray, and it smells like Spring time or heaven, whichever you prefer, as you enter the room!
We had the headboard from my grandparents’ set in the room for a while, but it never really quite fit because of our elevated adjustable bed, so we went a while without a headboard. One day I was surfing Craigslist and found this ornamental steel piece for $40. I wasn’t sure what it would look like but when we got it home and held it up on the wall over our bed, it just fit. I took it out in the backyard and sprayed it my favorite Vintage Gold” Rustoleum spray paint and then we attached it to the wall. A make-shift headboard was realized. It’s a little over the top, but with all the ornate gold in this French Provincial room, I decided to just go for it, and well, it worked!
Beautiful linens are a must!
Linens are always a great way to “Spring” up a bedroom for sure. I usually have a white comforter on our bed. My friends always gasp at me having white linens (especially with dogs) but I love white washable linens (keyword – “washable”). You can SEE when they are dirty and they can be washed and bleached if needed, that’s why I like white!
Last summer I was “influenced” by Shalia at The Spoiled Home to purchase a set of Cariloha® Resort 400-Thread-Count Viscose sheets. All I can say is “oh my goodness gracious” – no matter what is on top of the bed, I will always have these sheets as my foundation. They are glorious! I change out bedspreads (that I fold down at the foot of the bed) throughout the year for different seasons and I purchased this Vue Signature Plush Decor Charlotte Coverletoff from Overstock. It’s currently out of stock, but the set includes the bedspread and 2 king shams and I love it, it definitely says Spring to me.
Who loves Rugs?
Another fun way to accentuate a season change are rugs. We have a hallway in our Master bedroom leading to the bathroom and I always have a runner in this hall. I chose a lighter shade of the My Texas House Lady Bird Runner and not only is it a fabulous runner, I think it looks so fresh and Spring like, not to mention it is of unbelievable quality and easy to clean. I hope to get the 9×12 soon for under the bed.
Spring time always makes my mind think of plants, and of course, what is a great refresh ANY time of the year – succulents! This beautiful succulent trimmed with pink edges screamed Spring to me so I put her by the window.
A pretty white tray on the bed with fresh flowers is always a wonderful touch as well.
These are the things that I use to bring Spring into our Master bedroom. Anything that makes you think about this wonderful time of year, whether that be plants, fresh flowers, light colors, or new growth, can help shake off the winter blues and get us all ready for the sunshine. I know I’m ready for sure.
