Summer Decor in the Bedroom


Hello friends!  Do you change out your decor for Summer?  I love switching textiles and sometimes even rearranging furniture for different seasons.

I’ve been making a lot of changes in our bedroom and most importantly using colors and textures that contribute to a relaxing and peaceful haven. I’ve been wanting to add floral lampshades and new art to our bedroom and was thrilled that Minted sponsored my project.

summer decor with mintedDid you know that there are specific colors that work best if you are trying to create calm?  I’ve recently took a Sleep Course (loved it BTW, you can find more info HERE) and the author suggested using green, blue and pink in sleeping spaces.  You should also stay away from gray, purple, and brown. (She also tells you why.)

I chose a beautiful watercolor floral lampshade for the two lamps in our room.   I shared one of them when I wrote about decorating around government issued furniture (you can find that HERE.)bedroom with floral lampshade

The other lamp and pretty shade is sitting next to Daphne who is wearing all of my beads.  minted floral lampshadeI love how the shades complement other pops of pink like my DIY Anthropologie Curtain Tiebacks and the pink in my floral pillow.summer bedding

To keep the room from being too feminine (I know, it’s pretty girly!) I added some cool palm prints from Minted.  You can find them HERE.palm branch art

Now that I have a peaceful bedroom, a good sleep mask, and lavender oil close by; I sleep like a baby!  Make sure to check out my summer page full of DIYs, decorating tips, and printables for the season.

  1. I love your summery touches! And that watercolor-y lampshade is gorgeous! I’ve always loved minted’s artwork, but I’ve recently fallen in love with their home decor – especially their lampshades and curtains.

  2. I just wanted to point out and say thank you, I find it very complicated and hard to enter giveaways because too often there is an obstacle of steps one must complete ro the move on to 15 steps and 5 social site, which more than often get me blocked for liking to many or maxed out such as instagram and it hinders me from wanting to enter 9x out of 10….I usually close out the tab as soon as I see more than 4 steps…..so I wanted to personally thank you for not making us perform tasks, stunts, talents and extra just to complete to win a possible giveaway. Thanks for having the give away and GL to all who enter…..wish u best. Xo Stacie

  3. I am in love with that lampshade you got! I love color psychology and try to use it for all the rooms in my house! We just went with a light mint green color for our bedroom for relaxation. And that lampshade would actually be a perfect addition! Thanks for sharing 🙂
