Inspiration for a Bedroom Makeover

A friend of mine sent a picture of a bedroom she thought I would like. 
I liked it immediately!  
Traditional Home Magazine
I was mostly inspired by the bedding and the 
soothing colors I felt from this room.  
My bed also has a high arch in 
and I intend to dress both sides of the 
bed with lamps and a picture or two!

This is opposite the bed and I loved the idea of 
the sitting chairs and the aqua accents.
(No fireplace...sigh.....)

We have to back up a bit here so I can show you the color and the position of the bed.  I had a golden toned paint on the walls and my bed centered between the two windows.

My friend and I discussed the layout and agreed the 
bed should move to the longer wall.  
I'm so glad I did this because it feels so much larger now.
This is a quick layout of the room.  

The right side shares a small walkway between 
two doors that I wanted to decorate.
I shopped my house and found this mirror and the coloring seemed like a good fit.  My friend and I had decided a mirror would help reflect light back from the windows and it would be nice to give this wall a finished look.  
(I just painted (Balanced Beige) and didn't even get the wall plate back on!)

I had some pictures stashed away (and never had used) that I showed her and we agreed on a plan for their layout.

My friend sends me her ideas and 
if I like them I try them!
(Isn't it great to have a friend like that)

And here it is!
(Brings to life a wall I was ignoring)

I've only just begun, but you can see I've gotten a few things underway and having so much fun doing it.

This is a rough draft.  I'm still waiting on draperies, lamps and some more bedding pieces.

I'll show my final design as soon as I get all of my 
things for it!
By the way...guess who my friend is!

(Drum roll>>>>>>>>please)

We communicate through e-mails since she's in
Michigan and I'm in New Mexico!

Thank you so much for stopping by!

I haven't posted anything lately so, I thought I would do a little Valentine's Day setting.

 A sweet for the sweety!

 The bird plates and charger I got at Pier plates are Fiesta, flatware Napolian Bee from Horchows, the crystal I have had for years and the glitter placemats I bought at a local discount store.
Thanks for stopping by and always love your comments!

The Mantel Came Together

I am forever changing something and this week it is my mantel. I am trying to find just that right look!
I received these two ginger jars/urns last week and have been working with them for the mantel but, wasn't really comfortable with what I had done.
Then a friend,  Liz @infusewithliz sent me a picture she had seen at Nell Hill's of a mantel she thought I might work with.
Isn't this beautiful? 
Of course,  my fireplace or room looks nothing like this....{{sigh}}
Of well, now on to show you what I ended up doing.  
The 2nd. picture is what I had done before seeing this.

The one following is the design I decided to go with,  I like the pop of white!
What do you think?

One more quest I have completed! 
That is until I find that small pedestal to try under the middle white pot, I know I have one someplace....oh....could it be upstairs or maybe the attic..... oh,  I need to stop this!!
Thanks for stopping by!
