SUMMER BEDROOM DECORATING REFRESH: OUR MASTER REVEAL

Welcome to my summer bedroom decorating refresh! I have been on pins and needles waiting to share this reveal with you! Last month, I shared my design board (see it here), showcasing all of the new elements I’d be bringing into our bedroom and I’m so thrilled with the final results – when a vision in my head comes to full fruition, it makes me so happy! We updated just a few simple pieces, and our bedroom has a whole new look and feel that we love so much. You can click here to see how our bedroom has evolved over the past couple of years.

Our new bed (see it here), took quite some time to arrive, so it pushed back my timeline getting everything pulled together. All I can say, is the wait was so well worth it. Keep reading for a closer look and more details on all of the new pieces – our chandelier, rug, bed and bedding – that has brought our summer bedroom decorating refresh to life!Beautiful summer decorated bedroom with blue and white striped bedding , upholstered bed with brass nailhead trim is chic and elegant.

OUR NEW BEDDING FROM MARK D. SIKES FOR ANNIE SELKE

Our new bedding is so incredibly luxurious and we’re loving the airy, summery look it brings to our bedroom. Mark D. Sikes is one of my all-time favorite designers, his style has a huge influence on my design choices and I often turn to his work for inspiration. When I was asked to partner together to feature his new line in collaboration with Annie Selke, I jumped at the chance! You can see their entire collection here – you’ll want everything, trust me!Beautiful summer decorated bedroom with blue and white striped and floral bedding , upholstered bed with brass nailhead trim is chic and elegant! Blue and white ginger jars and brass details complete this elegant bedroom.

You all know how much I love to mix my patterns and this bedding was so fun to play around with. I wanted our summer bedding look to be light and airy, with a coastal feel, and everything about this east-meets-west look is right up my design alley.

This is our first set of linen sheets, and I can honestly tell you they are heavenly to sleep on!Summer bedding with mixed prints - blue and white stripes and florals with mixed with red florals and block-print inspired lumbar pillow. Gorgeous upholstered headboard with brass nailhead trim.

Originally I was thinking of only a blue and white palette, but when I saw these gorgeous Fairfield linen chintz shams with their beautiful red, indigo and beige tones, and this stunning Brisbane block-print-inspired lumbar pillow, I wanted to mix them in with the blues I had in mind for some added contrast and visual interest. It’s such a gorgeous combination, I’m so in love!Gorgeous linen and quilted bedding with mixed prints, blue and white stripes and florals with mixed with red florals.There are so many beautiful details in these prints, their design is classic and elegant, and for me, there’s a nostalgia about them that I love as well. I grew up around a lot of blue and white prints and florals just like this, and these remind me of my home as a child. My mother was an impeccable decorator then, and still is today! She too, is a very big influence on me from a design standpoint. I’ve learned so much watching her do her magic!Gorgeous linen and quilted bedding with mixed prints, blue and white stripes and florals with mixed with red florals.

Our gorgeous Newbury quilt and shams with their nod to chinoiserie prints, play so well with the striped Montebello Asiatic Blue duvet and shams. I think this collection was designed just for me. Truly, it is all so perfect in our space and our bedroom feels like a chic but quaint little getaway somewhere far away…

OUR NEW UPHOLSTERED BED WITH BRASS NAILHEAD TRIM

I wanted our new bed to have the opposite effect of our previous one. We loved our bed before, but I was craving a brighter look and I figured since I was in the market for something new, it would have to be completely different. We went from a dark grey, tailored, more glamorous design, to something more feminine soft and pretty, but still with a tailored and glamorous feel to it. No compromising on style here. By the way, my hubby fully approves too ;)Traditional bedroom featuring a chic upholstered headboard with brass nailhead trim, brass lamps and starburst mirror. Summer bedding with a mix of blue and white stripes and red floral prints for a classic look.I absolutely love the brass nailheads (versus the silver we had before) on the headboard, and how they play up all of the other brass elements in our space. This bed pulls everything together and anchors the room without being too visually demanding, and I love the elegant lines of the beautiful headboard.

OUR CHANDELIER FROM CAPITOL LIGHTING BY HUDSON VALLEY LIGHTING

This light!! Seriously, I am so in love with my new Humphrey chandelier from Capitol Lighting by Hudson Valley Lighting. I could not have found a more perfect piece to create a dramatic, yet classic look in our bedroom (see it here). I purposely went with the largest size, 31 inches, for a little extra drama and statement-making impact – I think it fits the profile just perfectly. Bedroom refresh featuring a dramatic over-scale drum shade chandelier with elegant detailing and brass accents.The feminine lines compliment the headboard and I love how their shapes echo each other…notice how the shade and brass canopy both share those gorgeous lines too, which is one of my favorite details of this stunning piece.Beautiful summer decorated bedroom with blue and white striped bedding , upholstered bed with brass nailhead trim is chic and elegant.

A FEW DETAILS TO COMPLETE OUR LOOK

White coral sculptures, blue and white vases and jars, ivory lampshades (borrowed from our living room lamps) and upholstered stools accessorized with ivory and brass pieces help to pull our summer bedroom look together and complete the look.

To me, summer decorating should feel transportive, like you’re on a vacation somewhere. I even love to infuse that into my decorating at other times of the year too. This feels light and airy, but elegant and still warm and comforting too. Simple touches like fresh peonies and my blue and white pieces (staples in my decor) always do the trick for me.Elegant summer decorated bedroom with coastal inspired accessories, ginger jars, blue and white striped bedding.

OUR NEW NAVY AND IVORY STRIPED RUG

Our new navy and ivory striped rug is also from this new line by Mark D. Nikes and Annie Selke. It’s 10′ x 14′ and takes up almost the entire space in our small bedroom which actually it makes the bedroom feel larger, which I love.

Don’t be afraid to pair unexpected patterns together – you’d be surprised with the results! Here, I intentionally mixed the wide stripe of the rug with the smaller, varied stripe of the bedding. It’s all about creating contrast with this look!Gorgeous summer decorating in this bedroom featuring beautiful blue and white bedding mixed with red floras and block prints.

    Beautiful linens and rugs. Too bad they far above my budget. Love the chandelier also. The whole room is lovely and inviting. Wish I could change looks as often.

      Thank you so much! I’m very lucky as a blogger to get the chance to update my home so often! I know these are somewhat pricey and not for all budgets! I do have links to some similar bedding that are more affordable, all at the bottom of my post – hope that helps!
