Happy tax day, everyone. I spent the morning running around to make copies, buy envelopes and then go to the post office, but it's done now, thank goodness.
Today I am very happy to be able to share our spring bedroom mini fix up with you. After looking at multiple thrift shops and retail stores, a new quilt was finally located at Marshalls last week. With the knowledge of how hot and miserable our summers almost always are, the goal was to fine one with a light, cool effect. The finalist has shades of blue, green and white in a paisley design, a personal favorite.
In addition to the bed itself, areas on the dresser and dressing table also got lightened up for the season. Here is a lunch-box style container bought in Austin last winter:
On the dressing table, a cloth-covered box from Pottery Barn Teen holds a green paper parasol, faux succulents and paper butterfly box, all from earlier thrift shop expeditions. It would be great to have live plants indoors, but the cats always try to eat them, so it's hopeless.
Our house is light years away from being spring clean or decorated, but perhaps sharing these small steps of the total effort as I chip away at them will keep me motivated. Are you making seasonal changes to lighten up your living spaces? Do you use different colors, textures or all that and more?
I hope your week is off to a good start!
