Spring Refresh for Sleeping Porch & Bedroom
This season I did a minor Spring refresh for sleeping porch & bedroom, just by adding in some beach inspired touches.
One of the things I get asked about all the time is how do I switch up my everyday decor for the seasons? To answer this question I refer back to my post on Hygge design because we believe you should live in the most comfortable environment possible. So how exactly did I do a Spring Refresh for Sleeping Porch & Bedroom this season?Are you just getting back from the beach or headed that way for spring break? This season I wanted to surround myself with one of my favorite places and color stories, the beach and keep that feeling going all summer long. I will admit I have a tendency to always gravitate to these colors and textures on a regular basis, it seems to be my comfort zone, especially in the warmer months.I also wanted to marry these to spaces together since they are adjacent to each other. This was easily done by keeping in the same color story and ordering two if the same quilt pattern. One of which I used as a the main bedding for the sleeping porch and the other is used at the foot of our master bed for additional covers. This is a great designer trick to bring two spaces together and make them feel immediately cohesive in nature. Plus you always have a backup or spare quilt for your bed as well in case something happens to one of them. I paired this Winston Porter Quilt with a solid turquoise quilted Oliver Comforter, dark denim Euro pillows, and ivory crochet rope pillows to invoke a beachy vibe. The crochet pillow has a very hammock swaying in the breeze feel to me, while the denim makes me think of wearing vintage clam diggers on the 4th of July.
*You could even add a hammock to you outdoor space, we love our Pawleys Island Hammock seriously the best hammock out there if you are looking!I also loved the way this iridescent light fixture also has a rope like feel as well, which also plays off the nautical rope idea, along with the crochet table runner underneath. In the background you can see a ivory tray with galvanized buckets all still perfect for that beach theme.I decided after the holidays that I rather liked having some green on our DIY shiplap shutters we built last season, you can see the tutorial here. It gave them a nice lush feeling and really added a freshness to the space. So to keep this feeling I decided this season I would add a some basic, green fern wreaths to the shutters. Keeping with the fresh tropical feeling I added a dendrobium orchid plant to one night stands for a clean look modern look. I added this sweet, jade hobnail planter to my side with some antique silk tea stained roses. Which can be changed out with fresh flowers throughout the season.
Now I will always have a basic silk set to fall back on when the live ones die off, because there is nothing worse than having dead flowers in your home. Don’t surround yourself with dead things, it is just bad karma in the law of attraction or Feng Shui, surround yourself with what you what to attract.As we move out onto the sleeping porch the view and breeze is clearly what this area is all about, so having the ceiling fan on low, and white outdoor curtains that blow in the wind is the perfect touch. The pallet bed is loaded up with tons of pillows and throw blankets to snuggle into as dusk creeps on to the horizon the tree frogs and crickets come out sing. That is when we light up a few aromatic candles surrounded in our driftwood collection on the fireplace to create and ambient scent in the air. I personally love the Yankee Candle Midsummer’s Night for the Porch it has a great outdoor smell. I mixed it with some fresh sea island cotton candles this season for fresh a beach scent.I also love having found pieces like the driftwood we got at a friends from around lake Hartwell on a fishing trip. So pick up. some trinkets while you are at the beach or local watering hole, they will invoke happy memories and also add to look of a beach theme. Also make sure you have some quirky little pieces too like my funny little snail planter. This little guy just makes me smile, and reminds to take it slow on the porch. I hope this tips and ideas have inspired you to do a little spring refresh to remind you of your favorite place this season. It can make a staycation in your own home feel just like a day at the beach if you add in a few touches that invoke that feeling.
