I have changed up my bedding for summer. I have a blanket wrapped around the mattress, and I use the lightweight green coverlet to cover up with.
I moved the red flower canvas above the bed. So this provided me, along with the green night stands/dressers, sort of a red and green color theme.
I didn’t iron anything, so there are wrinkles. But then, wrinkles are part of real life, aren’t they?
I have started to appreciate the varying shades of a particular color. For instance, the lamp bases are a darker red, and the other reds in the room are more of a tomato red.
There was a time when I tried to have the same color shade in a room, perfectly matched. I’ve changed my mind about that. I find I’m less regimented as I get older.
Note the varying green shades in the bedroom as well.
I moved my “to read and review” stacks of books over to the dresser on either side of the smaller wood and glass terrarium that I moved in here a few days ago.
I put the green bottles that were already there inside the terrarium. The larger green bottle has fairy lights in it that I plug in sometimes at night.
I added a grouping of white pitchers to the top of the red cupboard. I thought it gave a bit of femininity to the setting.
The red galvanized stand was moved to the bedroom for summer so the house plants can get more light.
And then I don’t have to open my front door to let light in for the house plants, which makes it a bit hot inside the living room due to the sun flowing in during summer.
So this is our summer bedroom.
Me and Charlie boy come back here in the evening after I shower. I read and brush him. Sometimes I hold my book with one hand and brush him with the other!
Then he snoozes at the end of the bed. My Charlie boy sure can snore.
