The weather has been wacky this year, One day it is freezing out the next day you are pulling out shorts. So with the warmer weather here to stay, I decided to lighten up the master bedroom by changing out the bedding for a spring update.
Now I use duvet covers because they are easier to wash. Although I must say it is a hassle getting it back on. Anyway, this was the look I had during the fall. I was getting so tired of it.
During the holiday season, I switched out the duvet cover for the cream one. Then I put a floral comforter at the foot of the bed. It was ok but the beige dust ruffle really bothered me. It was time for a change. The beige dust ruffle was switched for the cream one. It looks more springlike.
I still needed the cream pillow shams. My other ones were old and I wanted something new. Plus the Amazon gift card was burning a hole in my pocket.
It feels great having the lighter monochromatic look. I am still using the blue throw. And the matching pillow covers. It will be changed out soon. First I want to sew some new pillow covers. I bought the material so long ago and really got sidetracked. As you all know one thing leads to another.
I like the neutral look. It feels so calming to me. I think the next step is to add more texture to make up for the lack of color. And an upcoming project is to do something with those lamps. I have only been planning that project for two years now.
One project that I am glad I did was to make the slipcover for the bench. Changing out the bedding for a spring update is good. Change is good. And if you do a little at a time it isn’t as stressful.
