Summer Decorating in My Farmhouse Bedroom

Summer is all about color and fun and I’ve been attempting to infuse these two elements into my home room by room. Although I love white I have to admit I’m enjoying a few jolts of color. As part of today’s “Fun in the Sun” blog hop with 10 other bloggers, I decided to share my farmhouse bedroom with you, all decorated for summer! At the end of this post, you’ll find the links to the other participating bloggers for even more summer inspiration. And tomorrow … come back and link up your own summer projects AND enter to win $250 in cash!! Without further adieu, here’s my little ole farmhouse bedroom …

Summer Farmhouse BedroomA few days ago I posted photos of this bedroom and sadly realized it was too blah for the summer.

That’s when I ordered the new Laura Ashley quilt from Joss and Main you see here.

 

Cottage Style Summer Farmhouse BedroomI love all its fun color and of course, I love that its all flowery and girly!

 

Cottage Furniture in Farmhouse BedroomThe 5-drawer dresser was an antique store find.

It wasn’t in the best of shape so I painted it white.

 

Cottage Style Farmhouse BedroomThis bed used to be a 4-post Shaker style bed. I got tired of it and had hubby cut the posts down.

I added finials to each post and then painted the whole thing white. I like it so much better now.

 

Laura Ashley Quilt with Shabby Chic PillowsSince I love white, I had to add a few shabby chic style white pillows.

Plus I think when you pair color with white, it makes the color stand out even more.

 

Cottage Style Furniture in a Farmhouse Bedroom Decorated for SummerOn the other side of the room, I have another antique store dresser.

This one was already painted white when we bought it.

 

Aqua Vignette for Summer BedroomA simple aqua vignette decorates the dresser top.

 

Antiques Sign in Farmhouse BedroomI found the Antiques banner a few weeks ago, thinking I knew where it would hang.

But it didn’t look quite right when I placed it at the bottom of the stairway.

 

Farmhouse Bedroom Decorated for SummerAs I was decorating my farmhouse bedroom for summer, it dawned on me to grab the Antiques banner.

It fit this space just right! I knew I’d find a home for it eventually.

The mirror in the corner was hung on an old farm door that used to be my friend’s coffee table.

 

Summer Farmhouse Bedroom in Blue and WhiteIn the summer, I like to keep the windows open as much as possible. It has to get pretty hot and humid before I’ll turn the air conditioning on. I made the floor-length curtains from white muslin fabric and added pom-pom trim to the valance.

 

Summer Decorating in a Farmhouse BedroomYou might remember that the board above my bed used to say Sweet Dreams.

 

Painted Barn Board with Botanical Print BannerI grew weary of it so I painted over the text and hung my botanical print banner.

 

DIY Botanical Print BannerI simply tore pages of sheet music and printed off botanical drawings.

Then I stretched a piece of twine from end to end on the painted barn board.

 

Barn Board with Botanical PrintsThen I hung each botanical print on the twine with a wooden clothespin.

Now I can simply swap out the artwork depending on the season.

 

Farmhouse Bedroom with Raspberry Colored LampOne more new addition to my farmhouse bedroom is the adorable raspberry-colored lamp.

I love it!!  I found it by chance at Target a few days ago and knew it would look cute in here.

 

Farmhouse Bedroom Makeover for SummerI made quite a few changes in this bedroom, but I didn’t really spend a lot of money.

I used stuff I already had and what I did buy was on sale … except for that cute little lamp!

You can see more of my summer changes at my Summer Home Tour!

  28. JaneEllen says:

    Your room looks like heaven, if I died sleeping in that room I’d be very content. Your room is so soft, welcoming and serene. Everything you’ve done in that room is perfect. The quilt, everything, you’ve inspired me so much, I’ll be borrowing some of your ideas, love that lamp and banner, all of it. I want to make a banner for a big wood gate hubs made for me last year. I like to change out the items on it, keep it very cottage looking. Time to paint the room, going to be coral on walls and apple green for some of furniture and frames. Your room really influenced me to start on our room. We have a good sized waterfall chif-a-robe I want to paint apple green. It’s been white since I bought it in KY but time for a change. Whenever our daughter comes over with her girls they like to go in our room, say it looks so nice for a nap, is kind of old fashioned looking with the furniture.
    Happy summer days to enjoy with your family.

  29. What a cute bedroom! I love how the painted dresser makes all of it’s curviness pop!

  30. What a beautiful bedroom! So calm and relaxing – perfect for summer! Such fabulous little touches – love the clip board above the bed.
