An easy way to perk up your bedroom for spring and summer is with fresh new linens. I rarely use a complete matching set (it reminds me of 90’s “Bed-in-a-Bags”) but rather mix different kinds of shams, duvets, quilts and pillows. Here are a few schemes I pulled together that say “SUMMER” to me!
I am such a sucker for monogrammed things. I love finding amazing sourced for home accessories and children’s gear with unique, beautiful monograms. Nothing feels more personal than having bedding or napkins with your own monogram on them. While surfing Instagram I came across what may be the mecca for pretty monogrammed goods- The Loveliest Company in Dallas (the grouping of monograms above is from their account). Look at how adorable the shop itself is!
It says they are launching an e-commerce site this spring, which I can’t wait for!
I have been so all bout bold blues the past few months (perhaps because of the little boy?) and I had so much fun pulling together this cozy bedroom by letting my blue freak flag fly. I started with this amazing block print duvet from Kalyana Textiles and went all out from there. And take note, that amazing blue art comes HUGE. :)

As I’ve gotten older I’ve come to appreciate something I always though was a waste of money- good sheets and bedding. I’ve long been a discount store shopper when it came to sheets, but after getting my first set of high end sheets and seeing my bargain bin ones pill and wear terrible I became a convert. So when one of our favorite vendors, Annie Selke told us about her new bedding line, Annie Selke Luxe, and offered to send over some bedding to try I was psyched (and so was Oliver).
I saw this picture on Pinterest (via 1000 Layer Cake) and loved the combination of wood, white, blush and hints of navy. To me, this is a great take on bohemian decor. Sometimes bohemian style spaces get TOO overdone and leave me looking for incense burners and Grateful Dead posters hidden somewhere (which may be your thing, but isn’t mine). This feels like a fresh, clean slightly feminine take on that bohemian look.
So I tried to recreate it for you below! Combining some linen bedding, the same bed as above and a mix of leather, mongolian lamb, a handmade throw and brass I think it succeeds!
