My favorite time of year -- summer. My bedroom fills with light and the sun streams in during the afternoon. Each day, I'll find Gracie cat-napping here soaking up the rays.
This is the only room that is a shade off-white in my house. I really love color and all other rooms are painted in warm colors including yellow, green and taupe (or hot chocolate, as I like to call it). That being said, I wouldn't mind having more rooms in white as I really like white rooms with white furnishings also. At the time I painted my house, I got around to all the rooms except this one and then realized that it didn't need to have a warm color so it works for me as is. It also helps when I do photography in here as I don't get all those color casts on my photos.
Yes, pink is still my favorite color and I've not grown tired yet of my Rachel Ashwell Shabby Chic bedroom. The cathedral ceiling adds a spaciousness and allows for more light to filter through the top window. With the floral theme, small touches of spring green are dotted throughout.
Touches of happy - that's what I decorate with.
The three cones are made with vintage and French style papers. Another lucky find at a garage sale by a home stager in my neighborhood last summer.
We have a pretty good flea market at a local community college each month. The boxed set was a purchase from a vendor selling new household decor at great prices.
Under this bedside table, I keep my stack of reading material. If you looked, you'd find lots of magazines and some books, plus a notebook or two and a pen. You never know when you might need to job down a thought or two after you've gone to bed!
Gracie loves our bedroom, too. It takes about an hour to get the sheets changed because she hops right up for a nap before I can complete it. She does look a bit sleepy, doesn't she? She and I will enjoy our light and airy bedroom for the rest of the summer. Once summer is over, we don't get the fabulous afternoon sun so much but it's the one thing I look forward to each year. And I know Gracie does too.
