Summer Style Quilt

Hello Friends!
I've started on my shopping quest to add aqua blues and ended up finding
a summer quilt for the guest room. I will have much more to share soon.
Stay tuned!
 The guest room was recently painted this cheerful aqua blue.
 I found the white and aqua leaf print quilt at Marshalls for $29.99. Love it!
Sometimes adding one little item to a room can really update it for the season.
Have a wonderful weekend!

You're right, it just takes one thing. I really do like that quilt. It brightens up the bed. You've got just the right touch.

Great quilt, Melissa! I've been looking for one for my room and the guest bedroom, but haven't seen anything I like. I like this one you found and it would probably work in my guest room!

So pretty and calming! Can't wait to see the rest! I've had fun at Marshall's, Home Goods, TJ Maxx! :) I have to keep reminding myself that I will have access to the stores and don't need to buy anything until we get to the base! :)

Tardevil said...

Looking good, Melissa! The quilt works so well in there.

I love the quilt. I love the whole room. I was wondering if that is a queen bed. I would love one for my room. I have a cal king. I also love the wall color!

Hi Melissa!
I haven't been around much lately! I like your quilt! It looks marvelous!
I just got a "coverlet" for our bed. I'm using it as my bed cover- no more quilts because of the style of my bed.
Now everywhere I go I'm looking at coverlets!
