Neutral bedroom with pink accents and a beachy vibe

When we think of summer, we think of a slower pace. Enjoying the weather from your front porch, afternoon walks, sleeping in just a bit later (one can only hope!), reading in bed. We want all of those places for relaxation, especially bedroom, to feel inviting, light, open, and carefree. We thought we’d pull together 3 pretty bedroom spaces that capture that casual, chic summer vibe. Here goes:

This season, she’s opting for soft, comfortable lines, warm colors and a playful attitude that works on every level.

Plain and simple: your bedroom should make you feel like a queen! It’s that place where you can be utterly yourself and even indulge — in that extra 10 minutes of sleep or with your extravagant lotion and skincare routine. Or whatever it is that makes you feel pampered! And is there anything more luxurious and regal than a canopy bed? We think not. But even if you aren’t in the market for a new bed, there are some ways you can create that lovely, luxurious cocoon feel.

Update Your Bedding for Summer

Dressing a bed for warm weather

Your needs for your home change greatly depending on the time of year. In the summer, we need cozy spaces with blankets and layers and plushness to combat the winter chill. And of course in the summer, we need the reverse. Crisp linens, gentle breezes, and breathable fabrics are so important in helping you get a good nights rest. So, in this post, we’d like to help you dress your bed for warm weather!

Spring Color Palette: Spa & Cream Bedroom

By |Bedding & Bath, Bedrooms, Decorating, Get the Look, Spring, Tips & Solutions|6 Comments

Spa and cream bedroom color palette

First and foremost, we believe a bedroom should be relaxing. This should be a space where you retreat, relax, and recover, so it’s important to make design choices that will help you achieve that relaxing feeling. For some people, that may mean a bright and cheery hue they love. Others, it may mean all white. For us, we just still can’t shake our love of spa. The perfect combination of gray, green, and blue, spa is our perfect color, so when designing the ultimate bedroom retreat, it was a no brainer.

For this bedroom, we put a slightly more modern twist on the space by using clean-lined furniture pieces (our Isabella Collection). We also stayed true to our color palette — everything is in either spa, cream, or a weathered wood finish. Having everything coordinate so perfectly makes the space feel serene and polished, perfect for when you want to relax.

A pair of our Mariette Table Lamps coordinate beautifully with this bedroom because of its simple but sculptural shape. This column shape has a more modern feel, which we really dig for this bedroom. For the overhead lighting, we used a Carriage House Chandelier in our Antique Silver finish. We love the way the shape of this chandelier echoes the trim pattern on our Isabella Collection.

For the final flourishes, we hung a pair of Memories Found Art over the bed. They work with our spa and cream color palette, and the silver frames complement our chandelier. And no room is complete without a couple of throw pillows. Here we used Savannah Burlap throw pillows in mineral.

Ask the Expert: Mark Williams on Bathroom Lighting

Bath lighting tips

Obviously, lighting is a pretty important factor in every room. But we say the bathroom is where lighting matters most. After all, it’s where you apply your makeup and where he shaves. It’s also where you see yourself in the mirror every morning and again in the evening before bedtime. At the sake of sounding vain, don’t you want that image to be its best? Well, then you really need the right lighting.
