Summer is just around the corner. It's (almost!) time to put away the flannelette until next winter in favour of crisp cottons and fresh colours. Check out the summertime bed linen refresh I popped together for each of my girls. First up, Madeline's bedroom...
Maddie's bedroom is the darkest room in our home. We will shortly be knocking out her exterior bedroom wall and installing a ranch slider which will lighten her room no end but in the mean time I lightened and brightened her space using white and pastel linen. Maddie has a bright aqua feature wall with pink, white and gold polka dot wall stickers from Vivid Wall Decals which she loves but in my good opinion makes her room darker. I suggested to her painting it out to match the rest of the room (our house is Resene White Pointer) but apparently that was not an option so I pulled together mainly white bed linen with subtle pops of colour that would lend themselves to her feature wall to help lighten and brighten her room.
The sheets are design 'Molly' by Paterson Rose. We've been using Paterson Rose sheets on our girls beds for years now so I can attest to their amazingness. Made from a high quality 100% cotton percale, they are incredibly crisp, smooth and wash and iron up beautifully. I just love printed sheets and the subtle aqua ticking detailing of this design is perfect. Available in cot size right up to queen size and come as sets including a flat sheet, fitted sheet and pillowcase(s).
The white and blush pink spot duvet cover is a design called 'Dotty' from Ezibuy. It's a stark contrast from her previous duvet which was a bright floral design by Designers Guild from Allium Interiors (which we still love and will alternate with). 'Dotty' is a lovely fresh design which isn't too young or old and will grow with her. It also has a delicate piping all the way around the outside of duvet cover and pillowcase which is a really lovely detail. Available single right through to super king. The blanket at the end of the bed is an amazing Austrian brand called David Fussenegger from Linens & More. The euro pillow is from Wallace Cotton.
The swan cushion and garland lights wound around the bed head are from K-Mart. The round aqua velvet cushion is from Linens & More. I sewed the bunting above the bed head using Forever Friends quilting fabric from Spotlight. I love the dreamcatchers, feathers and teepees for our little explorer.

It's fair to say our six year old was over the moon with her bedroom update when she came home from school! It's fresh yet cozy, ultra comfortable, and calming yet fun. I love it! Next up, Maisie's Bedroom...
