Sometimes one little find will make my day, like this sweet white on white embroidered table topper (four dollars). There are a couple more views of it below, but I also found a dreamy soft chenille coverlet in pale peach for my summer bed.
Small changes can make a big difference in a room, and I think that is never more true than with bed linens. I don't wait for a change in the season either. The cover gets changed often because all summer long a sheet and a feather light chenille like this coverlet is all we need. (You are also seeing the reverse of the new Laura Ashley pillow I recently showed in another post here, and below.)
The bed most recently looked like this, with a lightweight floral quilt.
And the bed is often covered in white, as in this sculptured chenille that I sold awhile back to someone who gave it to her ninety year old mother for her birthday.
(Yes, it was hard to let go of.)
The detail reminds me of my new linen topper! I love white mixed with pale soft colors for a bedroom in summer. . . .
The textures and swirls in the design keep the look soft, but interesting.
You can see a tiny bit of wear at the top, which is okay with me. But even in very worn condition, an old chenille can be stitched into other fun things.
Overall this one is in wonderful shape.
A good generous size with a nice drop too!
A chenille wardrobe for your bed is all you need to keep things looking fresh, and you can often find them at a good price. This one in very good condition from a thrift store was twenty dollars.
We still have plenty of summer ahead even though everyone is getting ready for school. August can be our hottest month here, but not yet! We're still getting the monsoons. A delicious rain last night.
Hope you're off to a great week, my friends!
