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!

  11. Hi Diane, I am working on getting this room has been a headache with waiting on drapes and then having to cancel an order and ordering others because of 2 month delay. Why do we put ourselves through all this? I know, for the love of getting it just right.

  12. Hi Betty, how's the bedroom coming along?
    I can't wait to see it finished. I hope life is treating you well. Did you get an iPad?

  13. Hi Linda, This redo has been a chore indeed. Ordering and then it would be 2 months so canceling and re-ordering! Maybe by the end of this month I will have it all! No, I haven't got me an iPad yet...was looking at the Galaxy the other day?

  20. Amir, BCAAs could be taken on an empty abdomen, or with meals.
    It just depends upon the purpose. Pre and post-workout it's greatest to get them on an vacant stomach to speed the price they'll get for your muscle tissues.

  22. Males who rest around are seen as "players" and that is seen positively amount males.

    Females who rest around are observed as "sluts". It seems sort of unfair, and seems like a double common.
