Butterflies, Birds & Bold Bedding!

“In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins”
1 John‬ ‭4‬:‭10

Ever have places that are a “must stop” when you’re shopping? We have an outdoor mall that is my favorite in Birmingham, and I like to go there as often as I can!  Doesn’t a girl love to just look around?!  Last December, while Butch and I were Christmas shopping, we walked into one of my usuals when I am there….Pottery Barn.  It is imperative that I check out the tablescapes and the new products every time I am close to one!  As I was perusing the store, I couldn’t help but notice their new and oh-so-colorful summer bedding!  Changing out the bedding seasonally is not something I normally do, but this was a fun tropical pattern with turquoise, rust, and golds…absolutely perfect for our master bedroom!  So, when late spring came along, so did the new bedding! One thing I love about the colors is that they are appropriate for spring and summer! The pattern is called Fauna and it definitely adds a bit of whimsy!  You all know how much I love color…the birds and butterflies are alive in beautiful bright hues! You can see that my walls are peacock blue/turquoise – so the pattern is perfect! I have always loved pillows but as I have gotten older I don’t enjoy putting them on and taking them off nearly as much! This bedding is just fun, and not so serious! As an interior decorator (now retired) I had the best workroom and fabricator that designed and made this silk pillow.  It is a braiding technique and it is unique! You know that in the South we are fond of monograms, so it was a must for the bed!  I often used monogrammed pillows for clients!
 The bedding complements my eclectic Schonbek lamps! I unfolded the duvet to show more of its pattern!  A matelasse coverlet always covers the bed! A view through the iron footboard! Thank you for taking time out of your everyday living to visit with us!  We enjoy all of your comments!

    Pam, I love your duvet! It is fun! The wall color and your bedding go together so perfect it looks like you painted your walls after you bought the bedding! Are your drapes turquoise or a blue? They are pretty.

    • Janet, thank you! The drapes are also turquoise! I love the drama of the turquoise walls and window treatments! I knew the bedding would work and it was fun! Have a great week!
      Blessings, Pam

    I’m with you on removing and replacing pillows every day. We’ve had too many years of doing it, and we’re tired of it. Ha! Your summer bedding is gorgeous, and I’m thinking you have a new motivation for removing your pillows. 😉 The bedding is perfect with your wall color, and I adore those lamps! Thanks for sharing your decorative style, Pam.

    I have always been tempted to try changing out my bedding seasonally. I love that you went for it with such a bold pattern. I may have to try it myself!

    Thanks for linking up with Tuesday Talk! I’m thrilled to have you!

    • Thank you so much for hosting Christina! I love color, and would encourage you to go for the change-it’s so refreshing! I hope you have a wonder-filled week and thank you for your kind words! I am going to check out your blog now! Blessings!

    I love this bedding! I haven’t been in Pier 1 in so long but I have always wanted a house decorated with all their great stuff. The color of your room is simply divine! I wouldn’t want to change this in the Fall and Winter!

    The last 10 years I have been creating a butterfly garden area in my backyard. The very instant I saw your bedding I jumped over to Pottery Barn and bought the same for our bedroom. I love them and so do my grandchildren, who are learning the names of all the birds and insects. Thank you so much!

    • Carmen, thanks so much for your gracious comments! Your butterfly area in your back yard sounds so fascinating! I am so glad you and your grandchildren are enjoying the bedding! Wishing you the best year in 2016! Blessings!
