Making A Few Changes In The Master

I have been going through the house adding a little tangerine here and there.  It is such a happy color and has really brightened things up.  Of course, the master needed a little refreshing too.

 I really kept it pretty simple.  I added some new chocolate, tangerine and pumpkin colored pillows.

  I added a fabulous dog figurine I found on the clearance aisle to my vignette.  He looks so stately and grand I just had to have him.

Swapping out pillows is still my favorite way to change things up.

How do you change things up for summer.  Are you into bright happy colors, or do you like to keep it neutral?

  1. I like it very much Marty. It looks like a very cozy and welcoming space. Easy to relax in. Mine is very light and shabby chic but I am actually looking for new fabric to give it a bit of a refresher.


  2. I love your new pop of orange. So stylish! Great look.

  3. Marty I love the tangerine colors you have added to your home. Your home is always gorgeously decorated.

  4. I haven't done much summer decorating at our house because we've been out of town and have been spending weekends at the mountain cottage. I did manage to paint the laundry room last week though!

  5. I love this, Marty, and tangerine is such a fresh color and very much trending right now. Did you make the pillows? For some reason summer means adding light blue to everything! Ha!

  6. Marty, what a fabulous way to change things up! I'm the same as you, I use pillows and curtains to change or freshen up a room's look. My project for this coming weekend is to sew up some bright colored pillows-a tangerine one I'm thinking and a navy blue one to go with it. Thanks for sharing.

  7. Love, love your bed and new arrangement with the sweet tangerine touches! Perfect Marty.

  8. I love the bedroom! I doubt that I'll ever have a room like that because it's so not my style. So why do I love it so much?
    Oh, and the bed are great. Thanks for posting.

  9. Loving the new tangerine color you are adding. I haven't added any summer touches to our home since I am packing for the big move at the end of August - it's nice to live vicariously through you Marty!!

  10. Looks beautiful, Marty. I love those pretty colors!

  11. It looks very pretty, Marty! I agree, pillows are an easy way to change things up. I tend to go for the more neutral lighter look for the summer months. I guess I psychologically think it is a "cooler" feeling that way.

  12. I love the pop of orange, tangerine. For along time I lived in Tennessee and of course college football team VOLs colors are orange so I grew tired of it. But now since moving to Florida I miss it and I am drawn to it. Your pop of Orange looks wonderful. Thanks for sharing,

  13. Love the tangerine orange! And I love the tray you used on your side table ... may need one of those on my nightstand!

  14. I love the pops of tangerine you added to your master Marty....those pillows are so pretty!! Such a happy color!

  15. I love the tangerine pillows, and they will easily transition into fall!

  16. Everything is so beautiful - love the tangerine! I also like putting pops of color here and there during the summer, otherwise everything seems to be too "washed out". When you decorate the basics with neutrals, like you do, you can add just about any color you want for extra punch!

  17. Pretty! Should we be placing our bets for how long it takes before you paint that cute little doggie gold? LOL

  18. Marty, Everything is perfect. Love the small doses of color in the room.

  19. Funny, I've been spiffy-ing up my master too - not in a decorative way like you fabulously did, but in a 'baby-ish" way ;-) You know what I mean Marty. :-)

  20. It just takes pretty pillows, right? Your master looks amazing!

  21. So pretty! I love that majestic headboard and the pattern on the pillows is so pretty...adds the perfect touch to your beautiful and chic bedroom :) Thanks for always inspiring, Marty! ~hugs, Poppy

  22. Love your new pillows Marty, they are really pretty, and that tangerine is such a nice color, they can take you right on into Fall as well..............
    Blessings, Nellie

  23. Love all the new pillows Marty. Your bedroom looks so pretty.

  24. Your bedroom is so beautiful and elegant Marty! I am loving your pillows so much!
    Summer is flying by in the blink of an eye.
    I heard you are getting pretty hot there...stay cool!
    Big Hugs friend,

  25. Marty, The tangerine color is wonderful in your room. With a neutral room it is easy to change the look with pretty pillows...very pretty!

  26. What a warm and cozy bedroom - love the pillows!! Hope you're having a great week ~

  27. Marty,
    I adore your pillows, dear friend!!!
    (Do tell. . .do you have a cabinet or closet for your pillow storage?)
    The vignette on the bed stand is elegantly done!
    Since our late Summers on the Prairie are usually brown out~of~doors,
    I keep it vibrant with the colors of Sunflowers indoors.
    Simplifies switching decor accessories for Autumn by adding golds and oranges later on.
    Thanks for sharing your lovely home decor!!!
    Inspiration abounds!!!

  28. Love the added color and pattern Marty! Your bedroom is lovely and peaceful. Thank you for sharing at What We Accomplished Wednesdays. Have a lovely week! ~Deborah
