Little Changes


When it comes to seasonal changes in the house, mine are minimal.  Maybe a few things get rearranged, but there are few, if any, new additions to the decor.  There is one exception….slipcovers.

Well, there you have it, very simple changes that give a room a whole new feeling.  The best thing about slipcovers is they can be washed, an added bonus after kids are here.

  1. This is such a beautiful room, Lulu! I think it’s neat that you can make such a big impact with the slipcovers. I’m a lot like this with our master bedroom, new quilt and curtains (or shopped from the house) and I have a whole new room!

  3. Either way looks so inviting, but it is amazing how much the change in slipcovers changes the look of the room. Oh, and I love those sweet figures on your end table in the Winter picture. laurie

  5. I love the fun you must have with changing the look of your room during the year. I’ve always wanted to make slipcovers but still remain a chicken about it. Oh, but, how I would love the look! I love both your summer and winter coverings! 🙂
    Blessings!
