Summer Bed Linens

I change my bed linens as the season it was time to get out my summer linens for the master bedroom.

I have a shabby chic light weigh quilt on the bed for summer......

I like a more cluttered look on the bed in the fall and winter,   but for summer I like a clean and fresh uncluttered look.   

I changed out the slip cover on the chair next to the bed.   My slip cover is actually a long curtain panel that I just laid on the chair.

The master bath is thru the opening on this side of the room.....

The faux fireplace is on the other side of the bedroom.....

I did an earlier post with the details on my summer mantel.

   Click here if you missed that post......

I found these cream colored ferns at Michaels the other day.....80% off.    I have a trunk on this side of the bed and I created a design on the trunk with my new ferns.    
 The pillow is a new yard sale find from this week end.    I got three Laura Ashley pillows for $3.50 each......the round one is on the bed,   one is in the chair by the fireplace and the third one is here on the trunk.

The closets on are the north wall in the master bedroom and the black hole (tv) is hung on the wall.    

All my stationary,  printer paper,  office supplies, etc is stored in the secretary.     I can drop down the desk top and pull a chair over easily if I need to write out a birthday card.

The spring bedding is on the left....................................summer is on the right.  

 The bench at the end of the bed was moved to another area......where did it go?......where did the pillows and extra quilts go?

The extra quilt and pillows went under the table next to the bed........the bench,   well,   I'll show you  where it went later!

Where I Party......
