I hope you had a wonderful weekend and I'm happy to be part of a Bloggers Home Tour put together by Summer at She Leaves a Little Sparkle where we are talking about "Tips for Brightening your Home" Welcome all of you who are coming from CC and Mike's wonderful blog where I love her photography skills!
I'm using this opportunity to share a few photos from my youngest daughter Brenna's room. She had cleaned it so nicely one day(which being 16 years old is a feat in itself) and I had these lovely blue lace leaf hydrangeas blooming that I thought would look so pretty, so I grabbed my camera before all the clutter reappeared!
Her room sits on the sunny side of our house and has white walls along with mostly white furniture....which in my opinion always brightens everything:-) The blue and white striped bedding adds some color along with these beautiful blooms.
I think fresh flowers brighten not only your home, but your mood as well and I love to add them everywhere in my house especially in the Summer months.
On the wall opposite her bed sits this white slip covered chair with a pillow for another pop of color in the room and we put ruffled sheer curtain panels which allow lots of light to be able to spill inside.
I added slip covered sofas in the living room a few years ago and was amazed at how much brighter this space became.
My last tip is adding ironstone to cupboards and shelves for a clean and bright look
I hope I helped give you some ideas on brightening even a small area of your home that you were having trouble with and I hope you take the time to stop by Kellie's beautiful blog Gratefully Vintage
