Master Bedroom Changes

Hi Everyone,

I have made some changes to our master bedroom over the
last several months so I finally took some pictures to show you.

One of the changes that made a big difference was adding curtain panels.
Before we only had the faux wood blinds on the window.

I happened upon these curtains at Target and thought they were so pretty.
They weren't very expensive and the fabric is really nice.
I didn't even have to iron them!

They made a big difference in the feel of the room.
It's much more inviting and cozy now.

Another change was moving this chair from the family room
into the bedroom.
It replaces a wicker rocking chair and is much more comfortable.

It's nice to have a quiet place to sit in the bedroom and read
or watch something on my iPad.
It's my little getaway from the video games and sports which
seem to be a constant on our tv.

 We also bought new lamps.
The ones we had really did not provide enough light and
not that I'm getting older or anything (cough, cough) but
I'm finding that I need more light to see things well.

These are from Kirklands and I like that they have a
little more of a farmhouse feel to them.
I think they were $40 each so not too bad.

Another change is the rug.
The one that was here was getting pretty dirty and worn out
and it wasn't something you could easily clean.

I replaced it with this blue striped Dash and Albert rug.
I got this on clearance a few years ago and had
never found a good spot for it so I'm glad it worked out in here.

The rug goes well with my old quilt.
I've had this quilt for a very long time and still love it
so I decided to put it back on the bed.

Lately, some nights are very warm and others can be down right chilly.
I have some extra blankets nearby for those chilly nights.
Just never know when we might need one and I was a
girl scout so I must be prepared.  : )

That's it for the bedroom - for now!

Thanks so much for coming by!



  1. It looks very pretty, JoAnne. I love the blue and white-it looks fresh and clean and is charming. I think the curtains are just beautiful-they really do finish off the room. Good job-it looks just perfect. xo Diana

  2. Love what you've done! The curtains and the rug are just perfect. You are the master of mixing those blues.

    Love your picture on the sidebar. :)

  3. Great changes, JoAnne. I love how you have incorporated this sweet color of blue. It brightens everything up but doesn't overpower. Target has some wonderful curtains, I've bought them many times. I've always been pretty happy with just blinds but my husband pressures me to get curtains! I like a lighter feeling but you can achieve that with lighter fabric and blue is always sort of carefree.

    Great that char too. Makes me want to curl up with a good book!!

  4. Sp pretty I pinned it! Beautiful, serene room:)

  5. Very nice, it's so cozy. What color did you use on your walls? I really like that color.

  6. JoAnne it looks so pretty. Love the blue. I am thinking of adding blue to the new cottage we will move into soon. Very sweet.

  7. JoAnne, it all looks lovely. Love the rug, and I think curtains really soften any room! I'm excited because I am going to replace the carpet in our bedroom with wood. I'll need to be searching for a new rug. I got my basement one from Dash and Albert and have really liked it. Thanks for sharing with SYC.

  8. You did a beautiful job of updating your bedroom! I've decided to be on the lookout for curtains to put in our recently finished guest bedroom. I think a tad of color would look great on the sides of the window. That's great that you got that large Dash and Albert rug on clearance.

  9. Pretty and serene, your bedroom. I have that same lamp from Kirklands, but mine is more beige, and yours to me looks white. Maybe it's the light. To me the curtains the frame the painting, which is your window.

  10. Love how light and comfy your room looks.The curtains are a lovely addition to room, help to add finishing touch, fabric is so pretty and soft looking. always nice to do little gussying up in a room, make it feel refreshed in simple way.
    Know what you mean about needing more light to see,am probably about 20 or more yrs.older than you, will be 77 in July, but it happens.Love your new lamps.

    Enjoy rest of weekend

  11. Your bedroom looks very inviting, those curtains do make the room cosier and that chair looks like the perfect spot for some me-time.

  12. Beautiful, beautiful! Love the serene feel that comes with blue and white.

  13. I love this! The soft blue touches are soothing and makes this bedroom the perfect place to unwind! :)

    Thank you so much for sharing this at the Farmhouse Friday link party! Pinned and shared! :)

  14. My wife and I have been looking into simple looks for our bedroom as well. So we needed something that both could suit our taste. I prefer minimalism as I am quite busy most of the week, so I'd like to have as little to do once I get home, while my wife enjoys the light farmhouse look, similar to what you have going on here. I think after showing her this, it will definitely win me some husband brownie points!

Many of us dream of having a beach house but when you don't live anywhere near the ocean, a house on a lake might be a more realistic possibility. Lake houses or cabins tend to be a little more rustic and cozy, I think, and there's something to be said for being surrounded by tall trees, the sounds of nature, and possibly a few critters. Here are a few lake houses I found on Houzz.   Some small, some bigger, some more rustic than others. Take a look and let me know what you think.



Blue Kitchen Cabinets

Do you tend to be safe and go neutral  on the cabinetry in your kitchen? I sure do!
I adore the color blue, but I don't know if I would be brave enough to choose blue for my kitchen cabinets.
These inspiration pictures make me think that someday  I might be daring enough!
The blue on the cabinets above is so soft and pretty 
that I don't think I would tire of it.
This one is more of an aqua blue.
Doesn't it look cute with the bright accent colors?
And here is a very bold peacock blue.
It's beautiful but I think you would have to be
 very gutsy to choose this color.
Another soft, soothing blue.
Love this cheerful shade of blue especially with the
 wooden knobs and other wood elements.
source This is just a cutie pie little kitchenette maybe
for an apartment or guest cottage so I think
the decision would be a little easier.
(If one were lucky enough to have a guest cottage!)

I like this with the dark countertops, too.

This one has so many charming elem…


I have always loved  THE TALE OF PETER RABBIT . . .
 ~ he's such a cute bunny ~

. . . but he's so naughty . . .

Oh Peter, why can't you be a good little bunny
like Flopsy, Mopsy, and Cottontail?

Beatrix Potter wrote and illustrated The Tale of Peter Rabbit.
The book was first published in 1902.
It has certainly stood the test of time,
being a favorite of young children for decades.

Did you know that you can tour
 Beatrix Potter's home, Hill Top, near Cumbria, England?
Beatrix left Hill Top to the National Trust
and it has been kept just as it was then.


I wish you all the most happy and blessed Easter!
