Just a quick post today to share how I "lightened up" our guest bedroom for the summer simply by changing the bed linens. I love the bedding that I have for this room - it is cream, pink, and green, and very prissy. You can see pictures of it here. However the comforter is very heavy! For summer I wanted something lighter in both color and weight. I decided to use a white quilt and a pale gray dust ruffle that I already had on hand. I also used white European shams and a blue throw pillow. All I purchased was a cute white pillow to use as the perfect finishing touch. I have had my eyes on a pair of white quilted regular pillow shams that would look awesome - if they are marked down soon I will add them in place of the pale blue/grey shams that I am using currently. But.... as much as I love shams and pillows I may just use them ALL. You can never have too many pillows.
I also chose not to change the pictures during this "quick change" for two reasons: 1) I love the pictures that are here and 2) Unnecessary nail holes drive me nuts!!! LOL
This picture was taken at night - I should retake it again with more natural light.
I love crisp white linens.
This is my new desk that I recently added to our guest room. It is an old sewing machine cabinet that has been painted and distressed. I think it is just adorable! I will share the "story" of this desk in my next post. Stay tuned!
Isn't it great how just a few simple changes can make a room feel so fresh and new without spending a lot of money? This room is perfect for the summer months!

Happy Summer! Have a great week!
