Its the hottest part of the year right now, and everyone’s looking for a little refreshment. Today our summer series aims to bring you a fresh idea collection featuring the Paisley Fraîche duvet and throw pillow. Perfect for summer, this cool feminine pattern of lime green paisleys with lilac accents is hand printed on soft washed cotton. This is a pretty, but not fussy pattern – perfect for cottage decor or a “get away from it all” bedroom suite.
Paisley Fraîche Reversible Duvet
What’s that quote? Something like, “A woman reserves the right to change her mind”? Well, I know I like to change my mind, and to decorate and redecorate often. A reversible duvet makes that so simple! I think the reverse side of this piece is every bit as pretty as the “main” side.
Whether you like bed sheets soft or crisp, they have to be cotton. Here is a selection of some wonderful available sheeting that will complement your white, green and lavender duvet. Just looking at these beauties makes me want to snuggle down in bed and go to sleep! (I should, however, stay awake and finish this post! :))
Creative Wall Treatment
Now, if you have time for a little DIY, I’ve a couple ideas in this post that you might like to try your hand at. First, a beautiful high end look wall treatment: check out this hand stamped wall tutorial at This Old House.com… I think you’ll find the process simple and intuitive. You could even invite a couple friends over for a stamping party!
Interesting lighting in a room can really set the space apart. Lighting is so functional, we often don’t expect it to be special. It can be, however… I’ve pulled a few options for your Paisley Fraîche look; all simple, clean lines with a punch of something snazzy. Which one would you go for?
A bouquet of these wonderful floral inspired throw pillows will perfectly accent your Paisley Fraîche duvet. Pick from highly textured rose pillow covers from West Elm and the Homecentric, and add a crisp cotton pillow cover from the Paisley Fraîche collection as well.
