Summer at StoneGable means lots of company. The guest rooms here are often full and it’s important that they are fresh and ready for each guest. This summer I am in such a blue and white mood! I love how crisp and clean and fresh the color combination looks! So, I’m adding a little more blue and white to my summer guest room. Just a few changes make such a big difference! Come on in and if you packed an overnight bag stay awhile!
The biggest change I made in this guest room was to add a pair of blue and white curtains. I love their pretty motif!
These curtains are a soft cotton/linen blend. Perfect for summer!
I took down a pair of gray geometric curtains. The new blue and white pair make the room look brighter and let light gently filter in.
Most of our rooms, here at StoneGable have rattan shades. The shades add a layered look to the windows and work with every curtain and room in our home!
I also took off the down duvet. Duvets are wonderful in the winter, but can be a bit heavy in the summer! I replaced the duvet with a thinner quilt with blue squares!
Keeping it at the bottom of the bed instead of the closet makes it easy to reach for if my guests get a little chilly… and it makes a pretty bed!
All the beds at StoneGable have white quilts and shams on them. They are so easy to clean and work with any decor! It’s sorta a signature StoneGable look!
I’m keeping the pillows simple this summer. I love love love these reversible blue and white square pillows. And for the summer I paired them with these fun starfish pillows!
Another summery touch… flowers from my garden. The daisies are in full bloom right now as well as yarrow. StoneGable guest always comment about the flowers in their rooms!
The dresser in this guest room belonged to my son Christopher and he used it until he graduated from college. I painted it gray and white, added new glass pulls and gave it a new life! The blue shelf above the dresser came from a home that was 150 years old. I just love how it is chippy and authentic!
The small vintage mirror has hooks for some soft comfy robes.
Did you notice the wire basket lined with burlap? Pillows from the bed go in there! I keep a basket in every room for pillows so they don’t get tossed on the floor.
I think blue and white makes this room look charming. I just might keep the blue and white in the guest room all year round!
How about you? Do you decorate with blue and white?
