Simple bedroom refresh

Is is possible to do a simple refresh in the bedroom with just a few things?


Dreaming up a new look in a room is always so much fun. And when changing things- it doesn’t have to be a big change or cost a ton to create a whole new feeling. In the bedroom- I mainly wanted a few new linens and decor pieces to shake the look up a bit. But truth be told-  I almost always go to HomeGoods with just a loose agenda and see what catches my eye and lands in my cart.

And I have to say… I pretty much hit the bedding jackpot this time- with lots of stone washed linen and layers of neutrals on the shelves.

Like this gorgeous natural stone washed linen quilt in the most gorgeous taupe oatmeal color.  I love textured neutral pieces in the bedroom- they are perfect for layering on florals, tickings and other neutral colors. I also love the simple classic pattern this quilt has – it adds just the right amount of interest while staying classic and understated.

I also found these gorgeous barely blushing  linen shams. I layered them with a few floral shams as well as an old embroidered

 antique grain sack pillow that I had on hand.

I love how the red in the pillow picks up and mingles with that rosy blush.

And I couldn’t resist this blush stonewashed linen throw for an accent on the settee as well. The perfect shade and a perfect size for wrapping up in.

Of course, I had to pick up a couple fun things for the nightstand. – a vintage style galvanized fluted container was ideal for holding a few seasonal blooms.

I may have picked up several of these- and so perfectly priced under $5. And  an unexpected treasure- I also found this gorgeous French style caned back chair.

Washed gray wood, that gorgeous rattan and such a perfect scale for the bedroom.

I love how the chair adds another layer of interest to the bedroom while creating a spot to sit.

All in all- this bedroom look with the new pieces was under $350 at HomeGoods and each element is something that can be used and enjoyed again and again.
