Jam and Bread

My bedroom is very special to me. I tend to luxuriate in there. I knit in bed. I read in bed. I drink tea in bed. I eat jam and bread in bed. Sometimes, on rainy Saturdays or Sundays, my husband and I just spend salubrious hours, cosied right in beneath the duvets. Right now it is a very soothing green colour. I know it needs to be painted but I loathe the thought of actually doing it. I just lurve this bedroom with the gingham headboard and the ever so lovely wallpaper. Tranquil.

My problem is I love too many styles. And colours. And patterns.

I wish I could pinpoint the look I really want. But, alas, I cannot.

Blues, greens and pinky reds are definitely some of my very favourites.



How sweet is this spot blanket? And the lovely, lovely flowery sheets? Divine!

See how I just love it all? How I cannot make up my mind? Too many choices I tell you!

And just look at that scrummy pale blue pillowslip? And let us not forget that perpetual problem of the husband. Where are the boundaries there?

I love my bedroom too! It's a real 'escape'!
Yours sounds a very peaceful and soothing place to be. ;-)

I know what you mean, I love so many looks that it's hard to know which one to go for. When I decorated my bedroom 5 years ago I went for the boudoir, expensive hotel look. I loved it, in pale ivory and blush. I had lots of scrummy pillows to dive into and it was heaven, and luxurious. The only heavenly escape from three young sons. The problem was my husband. He complained about all the pillows all the time and it drove me mad! I can't decide what look to go for next! xxx

These are all lovely rooms. I'm trying to make our bedroom into a lovely peaceful haven and I'm getting there - just have to train my fiancee to stop leaving his dirty socks on the floor!

Pomona said...

The duty of a husband is to agree wholeheartedly with you at all times on matters of interior decoration - and take the bins out. Mine still struggles with which way the cushions go and which quilt goes where - the training has to be ongoing really, but as long as he washes the car and does the dirty jobs I am prepared to tolerate certain areas of incompetence! Maybe the answer is to buy a guesthouse then you can have each bedroom in a different style and sleep in whichever one is empty!

Ooh what a decision.....I'm in that exactly the same position myself....loads of ideas, colours, styles, fabrics etc, etc, BUT just like you I too have a hubby who has no idea on style to start.He's a straight laced cockney who can't be doing with frills, flowers, pretties and pillows/ cushions!!!! He does put up with them all bless him but it is hard work .....I don't think he'll ever get it really!
Will look forward to seeing your piccies of your end result...

It's not just me then! I have been having the same problem. I keep changing my mind about which scheme to go for in our bedroom. Luckily it will be one of the last rooms to be decorated so I still have time to decide. Roses will have to feature somewhere I think...
Good luck with your selection!

Your style is right up my ally! Love your blog! ;) Come by and visit me sometime.

I'm like you and like so many styles too. I love all white but then I love colour as well. Light blues and greens and reds are my favs at the momnet though. We currently have a pink room, courtesy of the previous owner which I guess I could do all shabby chic but then there's the hubby to think of.
Eventually our room is going to be pale green with white funiture and trims and blues and greens in the soft furnishings. Something we'll both like.

A husband being described as a perpetual problem design wise - made me laugh out loud.

Can't you just have a bit of everything in each room of the house and then you feel happy.

I find myself going through my magazines and my eyes fall upon a certain couple of rooms each time. It's telling me what my style is ever so subtly. :)

Those pictures are all lovely, but I have to say honestly; I think your bedroom is the best :O)

Ahhhh the bedroom --- my very favorite place in the world! Thanks for sharing all the lovely photos -- great ideas. And you know, I think the lily of the valley wallpaper is the very same as the one I have in our master bath -- only in the pale yellow background. We put it there over 10 years ago, and I still love it.
Merry Christmas Tina!
