I love that seasonal decor doesn’t mean that we have to do a complete transformation. Most of the time, it’s those subtle changes that can speak to us of the four seasons. Right now, my bedroom, to me, speaks of summer with Shabby Chic white bedding, soft greens and blues…Those to me are the colors of summer. I’m going to share just a few subtle seasonal decor transitions in the Master bedroom that you too can do today!
I do love whole room makeovers. There are so many decor styles that I am attracted to. I’m actually seriously considering painting one of the bedrooms all white! Now, when we moved to our house EVERYTHING except for the floors and some doors was painted white. I went the total opposite. I painted every room a different color…Now, I’m more attracted to softer, subtle and serene colors. So, seasonal decor can be easy decor changes that you can make to refresh your rooms and to reflect the beauty of the changes in nature outside.
Here’s what the Bedroom looks like today:
Summer decor in the Master bedroom emphasizes what is summer to me – white fabrics and accents; soft colors of blue and green. These colors are as fresh as the greening of the world and as fresh as a clear blue sky.
Autumn to me means apples, ochres in nature, crisp air and warm sweaters. Just a little change.
First and Easy Change – Bed Comforter
If you’re like me, you have a few comforters around that you love. This one is a soft yellow that is a great background to the pillow changes that will more fully reflect the transformation.
Pillows, Pillows, Pillows
I just love pillows in every room and especially on the bed. They just make it look so pretty and inviting. I have learned to appreciate the value of a good nap! Nestling into the volume of pillows almost feels like cocooning!
When you stand back and look at the room you’ll want something with color to draw the eye. Then repeat that color to further bring the attention into the room.
With yellow as the base for the bed and the pillows your eye will then be drawn to the tabletops that will complement the room’s decor.
I just love having blankets at the bottom of the bed and on the seating in the room. Fall is all about coziness and blankets make you think of being warm and cozy when you’d like to be.
Every Room Should Have Fresh Flowers or Plants
I love fresh flowers. They cheer a room and give it a romantic ambiance. Plants add to the decor and add wonderful benefits.
Overall the look you’re going for is one that makes you smile. Add and delete any thing that to you distracts from that. The Master bedroom is your retreat. It is a place you want to spend time relaxing. Seasonal changes can add freshness and appeal to your room – especially when the curtains are drawn back and you see the marvelous changes occurring outdoors.
Do you like seasonal decor? If not, did I make you reconsider? What’s your favorite way to change, refresh or update a room’s decor?
