We moved in a year ago now and we've been using old, white sheets that were comfy but just didn't seem to be us. My hubby and I love our room and we've even upgraded our bed, however, it looked ever so plain. With the summer season here, I felt we needed to redesign our room. With my busy schedule though, I desperately needed something doable but gorgeous! And so, I present to you Tips to update your Bedroom Decor and incorporate a classy, summery look in a timely fashion.

My hubby is a fan of simple elegance, which is what I strove to obtain, infused with my love of colors.

5 Tips to Update Your Bedroom Decor with a classy, Summery Look
1) Don't go overboard. You want simple looks that look and feel great. Clutter does not do it.
2) Clean the room. Mmmhmm, with all the junk that was previously on our night stands, it was a disgusting mess.
3) Change up your comforter. I chose a brand new Handstitched Cotton Voile Lightweight Comforter from Midnight Velvet. That was a huge part in transformer the room. I chose a lightweight comforter that's perfect for the season and had colors that would freshen up the room. You can sign up for Midnight Violet's free catalog for all their styles. Best of all, the hand-stitched look gave a homey and welcoming feel.
4) Sometimes, the simple things go a long way. I chose very simple but classy designs that would contribute to the homey feel of the room. I wanted the room to be relaxing and warm, so I added matching fragrance oil/reed diffusers to both of our night stands. It gave off relaxing scents and added to the look of the room.
5) Good curtains are a must; curtains that look good are a bonus. I chose a heavier material that would provide good coverage when it was time for bed but still could be opened to let in the sunshine during the day. The silver, velvety material again had a homey and warm feel to it and matched well with our wall color and overall theme of the room.

This was the overall look, beautiful, isn't it? And quite inviting if I might say so myself. The vertical rows of voile "crinkle" punctuated with hand-stitched pintucks really gave the comforter a homely, welcoming feel. The underside is soft and light against the skin and a must in the hot summer weather. This particular comforter is cotton with polyester fill and is awesome because it can be machine washed! Available colors include Aqua, Pink, and Tangerine. I certainly love my pop of colors, however I don't think the hubby would've appreciated a pink comforter!
