My Room With a View...

I think we all need a little restful place
as spot devoid of toys, children's books and little clothes
a place to sleep, to dream, to retreat.

I have been working on making my bedroom a little more restful
When we moved last year, I suddenly decided my bed should be white, so I drove the Mr mad
insisting I paint it before it was reassembled.

We are blessed with high ceilings in our house and when looking for what to furnish my windows with, I decided I liked the billowy look of curtains over blinds.

Recently I decided to mount them up high - I love, love this now, it adds more drama and substance to the room and shows off the high ceilings. Unfortunately now the curtains are too short and I will have to trim them in something. Preferably vintage, will have to keep an eye out of the right thing...

this is a little spot just for me - fabulous pear cushion from Moose and Bird, the other two are of my own design - you might recognise the vintage wattle fabric from this post.

We scavagned the ottoman off the roadside a few years ago.  It is in need of a proper covering.  I am thinking something like this would be perfect (image from Patch Andi)

hope your week is fabulous and a bit of creating is getting done

  1. It does look a restful place to be. Love the corner with all your lovely cushions...

  2. Its lovely Tracey , very calm & peaceful. Love the quilt, did you make it?

  3. Sigh .... your bedroom looks very restful. I know what you mean about a space to call your own (without toys, washing waiting to be folded, bills to pay, dishes to wash ....)
    Better get back to it~!

  4. What a lovely room, love the high curtains and that picture of the ottoman cover is gorgeous, what a great way to use patchwork.

  5. I like the idea of at least one room in the house being comfortable, tidy and MINE - and we are planning a reno so that MAY come true - very inspired by your space and ah, I saw that ottoman cover too - very special. You're doing well there my dear.
