Adding a little something new, changing things around can make a room feel fresh. It didn’t take much tweaking to give our master bedroom a lift.
At West Elm, I found pillows in similar colors to ones already on the bed. Their geometric shaped pattern meshes nicely with others already there.
Remembering how in Vietnam beds had a runner at the foot I added this one which until now has been used as a table runner. At first, I had the charcoal gray side up,
but I couldn’t bear hiding the beautiful embroidery on the reverse side.
Moving pictures around is an easy way to redecorate. Some of my favorite Georgia O’Keeffe lithographs now hang in the bedroom, and I love having them be the first thing I see in the morning.
This gal wanted to be a part of the mix, too, and I see no reason why she can’t be. She kinda looks the way I feel some mornings when I wake up!
Across the room, a newly reupholstered chair and ottoman provide a favorite place to read in the afternoon or just sit and enjoy being surrounded by things that remind me of family and places I have been. On cool days, I light the fireplace, the warmth of which makes this a very cozy spot.
I have decided that the bedroom is a place that should always have a little bouquet of fresh flowers, and these just happen to repeat the color of the embroidered flower on the runner making the pink seem to belong.
While I’m tweaking, the bathroom cabinets are next. I’ve long wanted to change the center panel and found the easiest way to do it was with wall paper. All you have to do is cut a piece to fit and glue it in place. Nothing could be simpler, and it provides immediate change.
Well, that’s a day’s work, so now I’ll just sit back and enjoy the change. Tell me, how do you tweak your surroundings?
i so appreciate your visit and the comments you leave behind
