Bedroom Wish List…

This is our Bedroom at the moment. It is not ugly, I quite like it. It started off in a terrible way (re: prostitute red carpets and horrible purple/red paint).
One thing I am not keen on is the table on this side of the bed, a temporary measure, until I find something to put there. I have an old Singer sewing base with a wooden top on my side. Poor Mic has to have this. I don’t mind the taps either. They will go, but they remind us of the house’s past as the Doctors house. This was actually the Kitchen!

We have just put in our Wicker Roman blinds with warm white side curtains, which we love.
I plan to have some black and white prints like these to put in some of our old frames. That chest is beautiful. We have the white floors already.

An Armoire like this would be nice. Not the mirrored ones though. Ever since I seen ‘The Ring’, I can’t look into a mirror if it is dark!!! weird I know! It is strange what Pregnancy will do to you.
The jugs and chaise would be nice too.

Etsy.com
Some pattern in the form of cushions, especially this blue I think would go with the hints of blue in our Euro pillow covers.

You can see them here. I bought these when we were not long Married and they have kept their appeal all these years. They are my favourite, apparently Vietnamese Linen…whatever that means! I will make more of my putty linen button cushions too.

Modern Country
I don’t know how well white Hydrangeas would go growing inside. Maybe I will just do the cut flower form.

I love this photo. White floors, loads of white linen and hints of blue..bliss.

Min Lilla Veranda

Little hints of vintage always go down well in a bedroom. I adore this lamp shade and could imagine this as table lamps beside our bed. The urn is a nice touch.

Alicia Bock
I am definitely getting a print of this. Big white mat board in a slim black frame is all it needs.


French Dressing
This one won’t happen in the near future, but I have always wanted a Louis Chair or something just as ornate with putty coloured linen on the seat.

As soon as I have got our room into shape I will show you some photos. This is to remind me of what I truly want.

  • Ah, I’ve tried to stay away from building a bedroom wish list. I like our room – it’s just too dark. Eeek, like all of my house! That’s what I get for moving in in December and needing/wanting some warm cocoon!LOL!

  • Vicki,
    I really am enjoying doing our home. As you know it has been a project on going for some time now…but even more exciting as all of the big things are nearly done, so I am enjoying it more now.

  • Artie,
    Your home looks great! What you have done to it makes me want to curl up in that chair of yours and read a good book by the fire.

  • Dwellings and Decor,
    Thanks. The Art work above the bed is called ‘Live Art’, made with Magnolias and Willow and was done by my Sister who does these on commission. So if you want one I can pass on her details, just email me.

  • Ness, looks like a positively delicious scheme you have in mind. Your taste is mine – I love everything! That Alicia Bock print is pretty but I also discovered a photographer on Etsy called Nature Mandalas or something like that who also has pretty ethereal work. Sorry I don’t have the exact name – I will have to go search. Not as prolific as Bock but still lovely!

    P.S. Love those taps. How witty! Just leave ’em!

  • Hi Ness! Why ever would you replace Prostitute Red carpet!?! What a beautiful room! You have come leaps and bounds in your house projects. I love to see the transformation happen! I’ll cross my fingers for your chair to be gifted to you! Thanks for sharing, although my mind is racing with thoughts of the before carpet and paint!

  • Thanks Terri for the link. NatureMandalas was one of the first few shops I ever added in my Etsy favourites. I love the white horse photo.

  • Judith,
    You have no idea how hiddeous that room, actually the whole house was. Luckily we could see what it could be and completely looked past all of the horrid colour clashes and the swarm of little dolls, bears etc that were chocking our lovely house when we bought it. Thanks for the wrap, I wonder if it will ever be finished!!!!

  • I enjoyed my visit to your blog.

    I would love to go shopping where you do ~ that side board cabinet for $5 … what a bargin!

    Your house is beautiful and to add the French doors~ will be great.

    Those white, pale blue and anything French, are favourites of mine also.

    Hugs
    Carolyn
