{ Daisies,checks & striped summery bedroom }

I know this won't be a surprise for most of you that have been reading my blog for a while now ,but I changed up our bedroom again!! I don't know what it is about this bedroom,but I just love the space & let's be honest it's my most favorite room in our house to decorate!! I was pretty much over the bright & bold art deco style I did for our spring bedroom look ,so I switched it up using daisies, stripes & checks!! I know that sounds like a cluster of prints, accessories & textiles haha! I promise the room turned out to be so calming & still has a hint of masculinity from the bedding ,but crisp & bright!


The light in our bedroom is amazing, sometimes too bright!! We have two windows, but the one behind the bed wasn't centered so if you're OCD like me, that's an ISSUE!! We decided to hang the grommet linen curtains to offset the window & also  as a focal point to the bed!! After three years & pry the easiest solution , I still love it!! The bedding is from +IKEA USA $40!

Side Note: This is a duvet set & when I got it home I realized it's reversible!! One side is check & the other stripes! I'll be doing a post on how it holds up in a later post!!


This vintage cedar lined chest was a thrift my mom found & restored for us for our now home! It's one of my favorite pieces!!




I ended up spray painting the ' His & Her' signs with a silver metallic paint. I loved the white ,but wanted a little industrial feel instead of just shabby chic!




Remember a few days ago I blogged about this cute DIY $10 Daisy wreath?? Well, here is where I really made it for!! I love the tan, aqua/green ,white & yellow color scheme! I stepped a little out of my comfort zone with this, but in the end LOVE IT especially for summer!! To read how I made this  simple/ summery daisy wreath click here -->DIY $10 Daisy Wreath

The Mr. & Mrs. pillow is from +HomeGoods 


See how I transformed our side table bins from plain white to cute striped bins here ---> DIY Striped Dollar Store bins!


I have to mention these little vintage plates..my mom picked them up for me a few weekends back while thriftying & I'm obsessed!! I switched out our silver beaded place-mats for these more neutral rustic ones. I love how they look with the daisies & the little plates!


I'm going to touch base on a little secret about these rugs..they're over 6 years old & still going strong!! I go through rugs like crazy in our house, but these have held up SO well! I'm surprised because high pile rugs usually become matted & just dirty, but not these & this week I'll be sharing how I keep them looking like new with a simple DIY!


 

I hope you all enjoyed this  neutral ,yet summery inspired bedroom scheme!

Have a happy & healthy week everyone!
