I thought with just a tweak of exchanging the matelassé shams would really bring a spring touch to the bedroom. This large expanse of the headboard lends itself to decorating for any season.
Once the Christmas items are removed, the white matelassé pillows shams leave the bed rather plain, but still looking fresh.
Last fall, I purchased Shabby Chic pillow shams on sale at Target. The great thing about these shams is that they are two sided. Most pillow shams are only one sided. Because these shams don't have a slit in the middle of the back, both sides can be changed.
A soft bouquet of roses leaves a very tranquil look to the shams on one side.
They add a bit of spring to the bed.
The front side is a collection of patchwork shabby fabrics. Although soothing also, they add a bit more punch of color.
So, let's await the winter thaw and look forward to spring.
I like the way the shams pull color in from the mosaic oval tray on the trunk in front of the bed.
One simple change switches out one season for the next.
