Blue Roses On The Bed

I love fabric with blue roses. I have not had much finding it as of late so I was so happy when I found this comforter at Goodwill!

I have white comforters that I like on the bed, but have been thinking I want to add some pattern to the bedroom.  I was really happy to find this.

It is a Laura Ashley comforter and the fabric is just perfect!

I figured as long as I am taking pictures in the bedroom I would take a few more. I kept taking Phoebe off the bed to take pictures and she just kept jumping back on.

She loves the new comforter!

I haven't done hardly anything to change our bedroom since we moved here a couple years ago. One of the first blog posts I ever did was on our bedroom and it continues to be one of my most viewed posts :)

"Aren't we done yet Mom?"

One thing I hope to do this summer is stencil the wall behind the bed like I did here. That would add just the right amount of needed pattern I think.

To end this post I wanted to share this picture of Duke. This is where he sits everyday at 2:30--it is like he can tell time--and he waits for the kids to come home from school.

What a good boy he is.

Hope your week is going well--thanks for visiting!

It's a lovely comforter! What sort of white paint did you use on your furniture? I often wonder about that.

Your bedroom is so pretty. Love that white cabinet. I like how you've been adding in some blue here and there.

Your comforter is so pretty with the soft blue flowers. Blue is one of my favorite colors and everything looks so lovely and shabby chic. Beautiful bedroom and your pet pics are so cute!

Sandy your beautiful blue and white bedroom is perfect... love, love,love!!

I had to laugh... my two dogs stand guard at the window waiting for my daughter to come home and then my husband. The funny thing is, my husband works away for days at a time and the dogs only wait on the day he is due home. They must have a sixth sense or something.

Hi Sandy, I´ve absolutely loved this bedroom since I started following your blog (in fact I pinned it as main inspiration for my dream home!) and now I think the blue roses comforter is a perfect detail to complete the look... I absolutely adore it.
Both your blog and Janae´s are a delight for the eyes of romantic ladies like me!
Have a nice day,

I have blue roses on the bed too and blue walls in the bedroom. Love the soothing blue and white. Here's the post where I revealed the sort of completed room (hey, we live here, it's not ever perfect!)

Fran said...

Your bedroom is amazing. Thank you for sharing it with us. And your dog just touched my heart. Our 3 fur babies wait by the window on the couch for us to come home. I am a stay at home mom and so they hate it when I leave. They are like, " mom, you are not suppose to go." LOL silly dogs.
