The crickets have been chirping WAY too long over here at The Laundry Can Wait, and I miss you.
What better way to return than with a decorating post - featuring one of my favorite rooms.
I decorated my bedroom to feel like a hotel, believe it or not.
As a SAHM, I NEVER get away. So, I wanted to create the essence that I was getting away after all - being pampered with room service, continental breakfasts and such.
Because a girl can dream, right?
So, welcome to my bedroom. I've also shared the tips that I feel made this room work.
1. Add the illusion of windows.
Who said you can't put curtains on a wall with no windows?? Go for it!
2. Less is more.
I maximized the space I had by displaying LESS. Adding a BUNCH doesn't always deliver a PUNCH. I liked understating the dresser by simply propping up a piece that I loved.
3. Add a statement piece that lends glamour and draws in your focus.
I found this VINTAGE sunburst mirror at a garage sale, with no intention of displaying it above my headboard. But I sampled it there and loved it!
4. Choose longer curtain panels.
Hanging drapery at a high level creates the illusion of a taller ceiling, as well as dramatic elegance.
5. Old is NEW again.
This is the SAME bed Joey had BEFORE we got married 9.5 years ago,
the SAME bedding we picked out for our first married Christmas, and the SAME dresser and side tables we purchased from Mathis Brothers with our GARAGE SALE money 8 years ago, too. Nothing in this room is really new, save for the sheets and added lighting, which I scored for SUCH a good price.
You don't have to buy brand new furniture. Simply distress or dress up what you already have.
Thanks for touring my bedroom.
Now get out of here so I can mess it back up and fold the laundry.
Because THIS time, the laundry CAN'T wait. ;)
