Breezy Bedrooms

As we are entering summer here in South Africa (although it seems someone forgot to tell the weatherman since I am typing this in the pouring rain!) I thought it appropriate to post some pictures of summery, breezy, light and airy bedrooms. Bedrooms that open up to the elements, often with bare floorboards, decorated in whites or pastels. They speak to me of morning lie-ins, doors and windows wide open, letting in the wonderful sunshine, or lazy afternoon naps escaping the searing heat of the day.


Till next time

  1. Makes me want to go back to bed! Instead I'm off to the bowling alley for a birthday party with 14 6-year-olds :) Hope you're having a relaxing weekend, Sharon!! I also hope the sun comes out for you :)

  2. Oh, how I wish I could visit Cape Town, I guess it's on my bucket list at this point. Love every image you've posted, Sharon. Life is good...

  3. my dream is to have french doors off the master's such a gorgeous look and makes for an easier way out to the pool or inside to shower...gorgeous pics!!

  4. WOW...every room is peaceful and soo lovely. I like them ALL.

  5. All such beautiful rooms and did you notice something? Where you can see out the windows all these bedrooms have amazing views!

    It's cold where we are and we have the wood stove going so I'll spend summer with you on here dreaming if you don't mind!

  6. You always find such lovely pictures. Thank you

  7. All of these rooms evoke such a soothing feeling - I love them! I am pinning the second one as an ideal beachhouse bedroom! Beautiful, Sharon. :)

  8. Hi I feel like nap but my bed is full of washing!! And no where near as calming as these rooms... All beautiful.

  9. Lovely images. Very peaceful, perfect for a bedroom!

  10. These are lovely. I really like the idea of having French windows in a bedroom to let in some air during the summer. The beds are very well dressed too, I really like some of the bespoke mattress covers and throws.
