I am a big proponent of changing looks for different seasons. One easy way to do that is with the textiles and soft goods in the house. In an earlier post, I discussed how pillows are a great, inexpensive decorating tool to change out with the seasons or to try a new trend.
But another great place to do this is with your bedding. I look I love for warmer months is the gathered bedspread, especially when they are done in light, flowing fabrics such as linen, cotton, or sheer organza.
Here I have gathered a few examples of this look.
This is a wonderfully cool and summery look in a semi-sheer fabric with a place to insert a duvet as well.
Here is a gathered bedspread with another light coverlet layered over it. I love the casual, slightly wrinkled look here.
These gathered bedspreads are paired with a gathered bedskirt so everything looks pretty and pulled together even when the spreads are turned down.
Of course, gathered bedspeads look fabulous when paired with canopies like these.
This is a gathered bedspread in my own house done in linen. I like it with the upholstered headboard.
This is also a gathered bedspread I did for a client's daughter done in white cotton with a contrasting welt around the top of the bed.
Flowing, gathered bedspreads in light, breathable fabrics just beckon you to come, plop down, and enjoy a nights rest in cool, crisp comfort.
