I asked some of my blogging friends if I could share their beautiful bedrooms with you. Kim's blog at Savvy Southern … [Read more...]

Christmas Bedroom: Holiday Decorating

Old Man Winter gifted our neighborhood with almost a foot of snow yesterday. The mini blizzard created an opportune moment for staying indoors and adding a bit more holiday decor to the rest of the house. My Christmas Home Tour was shared last week but I didn't include a Christmas bedroom, so today I'm sharing one of our under-the-eaves bedrooms.   My daughters slept in here when they were much younger, but there were two twin beds as … [Read more...]

Coastal Style Bedroom: Painting with Frog Tape®

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of FrogTape®. All opinions are 100% mine. My son moved out of the house about 2 years ago (and he just got married this weekend, I might add), but I haven't done much to his bedroom since he left. Until now, that is. I decided to freshen up the space with a fresh coat of paint and turn it into a coastal style bedroom for guests. The most frequent of our guests is my grandson who helped with some … [Read more...]

Summer Bedroom with Silk Pillowcases

When it's warm outside, I like to sleep with a cool pillowcase against my cheek. I tend to flip my pillow so my face always has the cool side of the casing. To help myself sleep like a baby during my favorite season of the year, I added silk pillowcases from OOSILK to my summer bedroom. I chose white silk cases to go with the vintage pillowcases I made last year. White looks crisp and clean in my cottage-style bedroom. I always enjoy … [Read more...]

Although a lot of my creative attention right now is focused on the dining room, I've also had a strong itch to freshen up the bedroom.

9 Metal Beds to Dream In

When my sister married and her new hubby carried her off to Michigan, I remember the white metal bed that graced their master bedroom. I wanted that bed. Badly. The desire stuck with me for many years and prompted me to purchase a white wrought iron daybed for my daughter Bridget when she graduated from her crib. Bridget has since grown up and moved out on her own (she's the daughter who recently had a baby), but my love for a beautiful metal bed … [Read more...]

Under the Eaves Farmhouse Bedroom

This past summer I ordered a dust ruffle from Joss and Main for one of the beds and would you believe I never bothered to put it on? Until today that is. The reason why I procrastinated is because I didn't feel like lugging the heavy mattress off the bed to put the skirt on. I finally buckled up and wrestled with that awkward mattress to get the dust ruffle on. While I was at it, I decided to change the bedding up a bit in our little farmhouse … [Read more...]
