To Dream, Perhaps to Slumber
One of the greatest joys of internet surfing is finding instant eye candy for decorating. I have a small bedroom that is now used as the "catch-all" for whatever passes near its doorway. Determined to make better use of the space, I have looked at so many sites for ideas. Keeping it as a bedroom, albeit one of "chosen" treasures only, feels right. According to Country Living, the "sleeping chamber" shown here is reminiscent of the 18th century. Its countenance is so peaceful. There is one small "tweaking" for my personal taste. I think mirrors need to be "unencumbered." So, the hanging decoration would need to be placed elsewhere. The cottage quilt, the soft shams, and the plates' arched arrangement invite the guest to get comfortable....perhaps to dream....perchance to slumber. Two more inspirations have caught my fancy as well. I will be sharing those over the weekend. One is "boho chic." Another brings a beautiful canopy to dress up a simple Wabi-Sabi space. Stay tuned!!! There are decisions to be made before spring decides to unpack for a few months' stay, strewing her charms everywhere!
