My Romantic Bedroom

Today I am sharing my bedroom-and yes, I do share it with my husband. I have had some people tell me that it is just too pretty for most men but I guess I am lucky because my husband doesn't complain.  When we were first moving into this house I was worried because our previous bedroom was much bigger and I was worried that the large scale of this furniture wouldn't look good, or even fit in such a small room. But just like most everything else in this house it all fit perfectly. I am really pleased with how the bedroom looks. I painted it this lovely blue (which has a lot of purple in it actually) and I think it is peaceful, calming, and a wonderful place to drift to sleep.
When my husband and I were first married we bought this bed . It was oak and for many years stayed that color.  I love it now that it is white!  I want to get a  hanging roses applique to put in the medallion area.

I found these curtains at Goodwill--for one side anyway, and had to buy the other side at Target.  I love them!

I have had several people think I painted the chandelier on the wall, but it is a vinyl sticker I got on Etsy. The photo is of my husband and I on our wedding day.


 My Mother got me that cute little bunny at a garage sale and the teddy bear is from my days as a teddy bear artist.  For several years I was really involved in my teddy bear making!  I even was published in a teddy bear magazine.  I want to make a pretty fabric flower or something to cover the broken spot in my antique wicker chair.

My vanity is another Goodwill find. Paid $15 for it. Of course it looks much prettier now than when I bought it!

I love the baby portraits of the boys in this room. The color is perfect!

We got the amoire with the bed--it was also oak. Its a great place to hide the TV!


Thanks for coming on a little tour of my romantic bedroom.

Your bed room is beautiful. Most men really could care less how their home is decorated, as long as the wife is happy, the home is happy.
