One of my favorite places

I think it goes without saying that our bedrooms are a quiet place of refuge and solace at the end of a long (or short) day and I find mine to be both peaceful and soothing. Bedrooms have become an important part of the structure of our homes because it is where we dress, sleep, read, share private time, steal a quiet moment and watch television (I had to give in to my husband on this one) so it would make sense that we decorate our haven to suit our personality and style. I prefer shabby chic over any other expression of style but when it came to our bedroom, I had to be fair to my husband and true to myself. We chose warm, neutral tones and I insisted that White play a very important role in the overall palette of design. Come on in for a visit.......


As with everything, it is a work-in-progress. The bed needs to be sanded and painted (none other than white) and I still need to add some architectural features such as crown molding and shelving to the wall opposite this picture. I love to spend time in my bedroom just dreaming about ideas and ways to change things around.


My dresser (whose former life was a buffet) was a steal at a monthly yard sale in my area for $200. It is solid Mahogany, painted white of course, sturdy and true to its vintage existence. I absolutely love the separators in the drawers that once served as storage for fine silver in someones beloved dining room. The frame above it was $10.00 at the same yard sale and I just couldn't resist. My husband even likes this piece and let me tell you, that is saying a lot!
It may see the likes of a coat or two of white paint one day, but for now, I am happy with the rather antiqued patina it has and I think it contrasts nicely with the off-white mirrors I have displayed in the middle of it.
I like to remind my husband to stay on his side of the bed with these beauties I picked up at a "clearance sale" when a little boutique near my work was closing.
My mother sent me this sweet 3-tiered serving piece for petite fours and finger sandwiches. Well I think it dishes up my baubles much nicer than any dinner party I could ever throw.... Hope you enjoyed my little tour of the place that I call home....


Sweet Dreams,


Debbie Kay

Dear Friend,
Oh how I loved your beautiful bedroom! The white side board is just yummy, I want to paint our bedroom furniture too, but my hubby has asked me not too! :( The dresser and nite stands were very pricy and he would just be so sad if I painted them! (Got them years ago, vintage inspired pieces).
See, it is just better to get stuff cheap then you can cut loose and do what ever you want with it and no one cares!
The picture frame over the side board is just awesome too, you did a wonderful job!
Hugs, Donna Lynn

You have a real flair for decorating. Glad I stopped by!
