Hello friends! Spring is here and I can’t get enough of it! My tulips are peaking through the ground and let me tell you, it makes me want to celebrate. That’s appropriate because today I am so happy to be participating in the Celebrating Spring Home Tour hosted by Leen from Sand Dollar Lane. I’m going to be sharing with you my simple spring bedroom refresh.
If you’ve stopped over here from my friend Cindy from DIY Beautify, wasn’t her spring kitchen decor so pretty?! I’m definitely a fan!
My name is Kim. Welcome to my Cottage in the Mitten! The Mitten has always been my home and I love it! It’s a blessing to enjoy each season in all their glory.

To Make Or Not To Make
Are you a bed maker or a bed leaver?
Truth be told, I can’t leave my house without making my bed. Well, at least 90% of the time. I’m not sure why. I do like the feeling of an organized room, but maybe it’s because I was raised in a house where the beds were made every single morning. So, I guess I’m just a creature of habit.
Growing up, my sons were not a fan of the habit. They used to ask, “Why do we have to make our beds, everyday? Are the bed police coming to our house?”
My reply, “Yes, sons…yes, they are.”
A Simple Spring Refresh – The Bedding
With each season, I like switching things up in my bedroom. A few months ago, I showed you How To Create A Cozy Space For Winter. In my opinion, refreshing a bedroom is not like refreshing a large room. Therefore, little changes make a noticeable difference.
For my spring refresh, I snagged a new pair of pillow shams on sale. My winter shams matched the comforter and both were cream. I’m still using the same comforter, however, my new pillow shams are printed. They have the same colors as the drapes and are so cheerful. I love the way they coordinate.
Small change, big difference.
I love layering. I love mixing patterns. The quilts I used in my winter refresh were used again in this spring refresh. The difference? They are both two sided, so I flipped them over and used the other side. The colors on each one compliment my new shams perfectly.
I only used one throw pillow and it was one that a used a few years ago.
As much as I like mixing patterns on bedding and pillows, I love mixing different styles and sizes of vases together. I used some vases I already had and faux tulips that I purchased last year, to create this vignette. The mellow golden rod color just feels like spring to me.
Solid and stripes. A perfect combo.
The faux tulips I used are amazing quality. I’ve linked them in the pictures below.
I love to read. You will find that I have many different books in my room and I use them in my decor, as well. Next to the chair in my bedroom, where I like to read, I have a little side table. I added a ceramic bird for a little touch of spring.
If you didn’t know, birds coupled with the color blue, are some of my favorite decor items this spring. You can see more of both in My New Blue Spring Home Tour – Part 1 that I shared, last week.
Also, if you noticed, I do collect and read vintage books from my childhood. Collecting different series, has been a passion of mine for about the last fifteen years.
My Simple Spring Bedroom Refresh
Well, that’s my spring refresh. I added just a few touches to remind us that it is spring. Remember, you don’t have to spend alot to do a refresh. Moving things around from room to room can make a decor item seem like new!
I hope you have enjoyed it and make sure you come back again! My door in The Mitten is always open for guests!
Last but not least, next up on our tour is Kate from Southern Home and Hospitality. You will love all her Easter decorating ideas!
