Fresh Spring/ Summer Styling

Happy Monday Everyone.

Now that we are officially well into Spring I wanted to freshen up our Guest Bedroom to suit the warmer months ahead. I am adoring soft pastel hues of sage and blush together at the moment paired with white and grey base shades. It feels fresh and soft for Spring/ Summer and gave me a chance to redecorate (woohoo.) I always get asked where I source product from so I thought I would also share a ‘shop the look’ section and highlight the importance of using colour to get your bedroom summer ready. As always I use a wide range of accessible and affordable products from known retailers- this makes redecorating easy and enjoyable.

Most stylists use a hero piece when creating a room design. It is usually a throw, or lamp, or rug, or a particular linen to wow the eye, but I wanted to use ‘colour’ as my statement in this space. I have used it in a variety of different ways and at different price points to create an overall harmonised vibe when walking into our Guest Bedroom. Bringing some natural oak furniture and leather into the surroundings also helped to add texture and warmth among the soft pastel hues.

Below is a ‘shop the look’ concept with all of these great summer hero products from your local Vicinity Centre, find your nearest here.

As you can see from the above shopping list there are options to invest in some products or alternatives to shop on a budget. If you like to style on a budget there is always the option to easily replace the higher priced items for something cheaper (I personally like a mix of both!) and this will not necessarily alter the look of the overall room. For example- Instead of using a real Sheepskin, you may choose a Faux Blush Sheepskin found at Kmart, and if you would like an alternative quilt cover option you can purchase the White Waffle Quilt Cover found at Target. As long as the colours are adhered to, the products can be slightly altered to suit your budget. This is another reason why I loved using ‘colour’ as my summer hero instead of one particular ‘wow’ item.

KMART ‘Madera’ Lamp $20 || MYER ‘Smith & Co’ Candle $26.21 || ADAIRS ‘Basque’ Pink Vase $24.95 || MYER ‘The Aromatherapy Company’ Hand Cream $14.96

I loved redecorating this room and am really pleased with the outcome. It’s such a nice change to have some pastels in our home and to pack away the dark, moody shades. Also, feel free to recreate this Spring/ Summer look in your own home and don’t forget to show me your images I love seeing pictures of my designs bought to life in your home so tag away friends.

Much Love,

T xx
