Oh oh, the home decorating bug is biting!!!

Hi all,
I don't know about you , but I know that spring is approaching when my mind starts
to meander into the home decorating realm!

I love it though, because decorating is probably my biggest passion. Even over art!
Of course I think of decorating as a kind of art too, so I get to combine both of my passions in one full swoop :)
I've been wanting to repaint my master bedroom for a while now and I am determined that it will happen this year! I'm keeping to the same color scheme of cream, but I want to paint the walls in broad vertical stripes. Alternating each stripe with a flat finish of cream paint and then a semigloss stripe of cream paint.
Subtle but elegant.

There's just something that I find soothing about a white bedroom, maybe it's the purity of it or the crispness. And when the sunshine streams in onto the cream colored walls, it is just sooooo beautiful and romantic.

Of course if I could have the view of the above photo then I would probably never leave my room no matter what the color!

Throw in a glamorous crystal chandelier and maybe a gold
carved mirror and voila, the perfect bedroom!

A girl can dream, can't she?

talk to you soon,

Oh, yes, I love white in a bedroom. It is just so crisp, clean and soothing. My mind is so busy, it just calms me right down. I want that bedroom with a view of the beach - yes!! Cindy

Of course a girl can dream, Deborah! I'll be along with you. Spring does it for me too and I want to go even lighter in my decorating colors and get Spring Fever big time. I love all the photos you shared... I'm afraid to go look at my own boring bedroom now... I feel a change coming on!
Happy day!

Lovely. I actually thought you were showing us pics of your bedroom and I thought " oh but it's so lovely as it is". :) I love to decorate and create vignettes all over the house and usually do when the seasons change (hence The Seasonal Cottage) but painting walls - that's another story. For some reason I hate to paint walls - would much rather paint canvas ;) thanks for sharing!

Hi, I’m a new blogger you can find here at, and your site is very related to mine; I thought it would be beneficial for both of us to do a blogroll link exchange. Please let me know if you’re interested!
