Sweet Dreams

Ok, so you know I'm a southern girl.  I dress my daughter in too much pink and green, I adore my huge front porch and Steel Magnolias makes me cry every time.  But, some things that are almost inherently southern are just not my glass of sweet tea.  I am not in love with anything toile, chippy painted, or too precious (read scalloped, lace, floral).  And, I like to think I have good taste.  But, oh my master bedroom!  It absolutely makes me ashamed.  We have been in our new house over a year and it is still lacking. Short Southern Momma has me dreaming of the way my bedroom could be with her My Style Monday.

This is my some of my bedroom furniture and bedding (but in our old house). Kind of meh and depressing. 
I also still have nothing over my bed - sad, I know!

Here are some of the things I dream of...

So beautiful and serene and ready to be ruined by my kids and pets!

I love how this one looks masculine and posh at the same time.

And I am really loving the small love seat in front of the bed. 
What a great place to snuggle and watch a movie! 
But, I kind of hate the rug and the dreaded slipcover.

But honestly, this room could be toile from floor to ceiling and it would still be the best of all!!!
Who would care about bedding?

Have fabulous day and maybe go buy an accessory!


  1. Hmmmm....makes me think my bedroom is due for an update. I agree with you if your bedroom is overlooking the ocean, who cares about bedding! :)

    Stopped by from SITS.

  2. My bedroom is pitiful! Nothing in it but bed, dressers, and nightstands! I have nothing above my bed either, after looking at these pics I have a lot of work to do! *sigh*

    Dropping by from SITS, have a great day!

  3. Ohh a bedroom overlooking the ocean definitely outweighs the need for a makeover! I love that first bedroom, it's definitely something I would do!
