Seriously Cool Bedrooms!

There are so many beautiful interior design blogs with posts about bedrooms, like those over at Claudia's blog, The Paris Apartment in One of a Kind Love Affair, To Sleep, Perchance to Dream, and The Art of the Unmade Bed, and over at Trouvais in her post More Bella Notte.

I had to join in the fun and share some pretty bedrooms I found too,
but with a twist... ones with beds that look like tents, and those with canopies and a cozy nook to curl up with a good book.
I hope they are inspiring and peaceful. Sweet Dreams!

"The Holiday" and Bedroom Tents

I'm watching one of my favorite movies, "The Holiday"
and dreaming of pretty cottages with cozy rooms.

Some of the cutest scenes from the movie are with the little girls,
Sophie and Olivia, when they want to show Amanda their room:
"Guess what? We have a tent in our playroom. Do you want to see it?"

"This is an exceptionally great room!"

"Come inside! Lay down... lay down. It's cozy."

"Who cut out all these beautiful stars?
"We did, the three Musketeers."

Next post, I'll share some more "seriously cool" rooms!

Gray and Burgundy Today

The wintery cold feeling of silver and gray
can be warmed up with rose and burgundy
in hopes you will have a very pretty day.

Strolling Along and Longing for a Stroll

When I was young I couldn't wait for my life
to hurry up and happen so I could get there,
where ever it was I thought I wanted to be.
At some point, all of that changed.
I don't remember when it happened,
but now I wish life would slow down.
Time seems to slip by out of my grasp
and I long for a meaningful stroll
instead of just strolling along.

Inspiration for my post came about after reading
Pamela's blog is so beautiful and well written...
one I simply can't live without.
Thank you Pamela for inspiring us every day.
