Vintage Chenille Bedspreads

Nothing says summer/beach house like a retro chenille blanket. I admit some are a bit goofy and over the top but a white version paired with a stripe bedskirt like the image above feels restrained bohemian. I found a few vintage versions on etsy.com that I thought were pretty cute. The pink bedspread is hard to resist (i own a few similar) but to get the look above you really need to stick with white. Maybe the color versions could go in a kids’ room? At the way bottom I found an affordable diamond pattern bedspread at L.L.Bean. Scour ebay, etsy, or thrift stores for more.

White on White Popcorn Tufts, $65 catnapcottage.etsy.com.

Flower Hair Pins from Handle & Spout

I love a flower pin tucked into my bun in the springtime. A flower makes me feel so feminine and maybe a bit french. Made of silk taffeta and tulle from handlespout.com.
