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

  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.
    hugs,

  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.

  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.

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

  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!

A HOUSE ON A LAKE

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.

Farmhouse Style In My Kitchen

Wow! Farmhouse style has really taken off, hasn't it? I love it just as much as many of you out there. One of the great things about it is that it's fairly easy to add  to your decor and it can be relatively inexpensive too.
Here are a few recent finds for my kitchen that I think give it a little more of that farmhouse feeling. 

Now this one is pretty obvious considering it has the word "FARM" right on it  : ) This came from a little shop I went to while we were on vacation  and it really inspired me to add a few more farmhouse style accessories.


I have admired these vintage scales forever and I finally found one on Ebay  that I thought would look great in my kitchen and was also a reasonable price. Boy, some of them are really pricey!



Any good farmhouse has to have a rooster, right? A quick little project I did was add blue grain sack stripes to this white wooden rooster. I think he is pretty proud of them!


Of course mason jars and pretty little flowers bring on th…
