This is my bed. My bedroom is my resting place. My get away. My home within my home. I like it calm, neat, peaceful. I love low lighting and the scent of Archipelago's Madagascar filling the air. And yes, I am having a love affair with my sheets (thats a whole different post, ha ha).

So, as you might have guessed, this room was done on inspiration (mentioned above) and a budget-- my husband's favorite word since I quit my job to stay home with K. I'll detail the finds for you in the FYI below.

-For paint colors click here
-My headboard is from Ballard Designs (natural linen), $559
-I REALLY wanted the French Wing Upholstered Bed from Restoration Hardware, but at $2495, it wasn't in my budget
-Side tables are from Storehouse (which is no longer, sniff sniff)
-Urn lamps are from Homegoods
-Rug by the bed is from Southeastern Salvage for $30!!
-Linen chest is from Potterybarn outlet in Dawsonville, GA

-The bench that I am using as a footboard is from HomeGoods in Atlanta $149.99, I had a seamstress make the down linen cushion for me and the large roll pillow was $20 from TJMaxx that I had recovered in a linen table runner (Dwell) that I got on sale.

  1. We just moved into our new house and sadly my bedroom has not been touched. We have all the nice furniture, but need to find the bedding and decor. I want mine to be a space for "us".

  2. Great blog! Love the bench at the foot of your bed - what a bargain indeed! There are similar S&L-style quatrefoil patterned sheets at WalMart right now (if low thread count doesn't send shivers down your spine).

  3. Thanks girls! about that bench- they had 2 when I bought it and I SO WANTED BOTH, but at the time lived in a tiny bungalow in Atlanta and had ZERO room. I pictured them facing each other in a sitting area of sorts. Sigh. I'll just tell myself it would have been too much of a good thing, right?

  4. It looks amazing. I am in love with that bench too.

  5. Thanks for the info...I'm off to Marshall's for some S&L sheets!

  6. I love the sheets! And the entire room--the colors are lovely, so soothing.

  7. Just saw your feature on Kristin's site and couldn't wait to stop by to see more. You home is absolutely stunning. I'll share a link to your blog on my Facebook page.

  8. Found you via 6th glad I did!!! I've been on the hunt for a new duvet for AGES and yours is EXACTLY what I've been wanting...I ordered the king size and can't wait to get it on the bed!!! Lovely blog.

  9. @ karen- THANK YOU!! very sweet of you and thank you for reading!
    @Janis- how cook is that? That makes me soo happy!!! Can you email me pics when you get it on the bed? SO COOL!

  10. So, I love your room ,especially the comforter, mirror and the Moroccan poof! Great job!

  11. Your bedroom is so gorgeous! The paint color is amazing!


  12. wow love this! just came across your blog and can't wait to see more. You did a lovely job with the bedroom.

  13. I come to your blog by way of Kelly's Korner and I think we're twins. Except I lack your amazing decorating skills!!! But I do have a baby girl named Kendall and my name is Shelli with an i. I don't think I've ever met anyone who spells it the same way!!! Small world, huh?

  14. I am also from KK. Your house is lovely. I see that you had a lot of things recovered, does that get expensive??

  15. Seriously love it! Can you come decorate my house please?! You do a great job!

  16. LOVE this! This is what I have been envisioning for my bedroom but never could really explain it. Thank you for sharing! One of the most amazing bedrooms I have ever seen!

  17. Found you via Kelly's Korner! Breathtaking master bedroom. The photos are so inviting that I can literally envision myself curled up in the room with a good book (as opposed to sitting at my computer and staring at a desk full of work to be done)! :) I don't think you mentioned it- but where did you find the solid color euro shams on the bed? I need some in a similar color! Thanks!

  18. Hi Beth! Thank you for poppin in! The blue euro shams are a TJMaxx find but they are originally from so you might check and see if they still carry them! Wish I could be more help and thank you for your kind words!!! Happy Wednesday!! xoxo shel

  19. Thank you for all of the love everyone and thank you for reading!! xoxo

  20. from KK - did you say where your sheets are from?

  21. I've been looking at these drapery panels from Pottery Barn for some time. Just bought them after seeing them in your house. AND they're on sale right now!!! Thanks for sharing!

  22. I keep coming back to see your home and always notice something new! I'm using a similar drapery rod in our house too- the sleek west elm rods.

  23. So lovely!! I was just eyeing that same lamp at TJ Maxx (also marked down to $39) and it was calling my name! I just might have to redo my bedroom around it! Great work!

  24. Did you say where the wall sconces are from? Love them!

  25. are the urn lamps still available at your local homegoods store ?? i don't live anywhere near one...

  26. I have been looking at the pics of your bedroom and am always drawn to the duvet cover but am hesitant because I can't actually touch it :( How do you like it? Is it soft? Would you still recommend it? I'd appreciate any thoughts if you can spare the time. Love Your Blog!

  27. I ironiclly have the same duvet as you, I can't wait to post a picture, although it doesn't look as fansy in mine...working on that. Thanks for your wonderful pictures and awesome inspiration. !!
    P.S., I also have the same urn lamps in my down stairs...I always thought I had style now you've confirmed it ;)

  28. I wanna sit down and put my feet up on that little foot stool!! Your room looks amazing. those floors that you have, wow.

  29. I have the same color walls, but ivory bedding n bold pillows w/ a peacock damask pattern that I just found at Target! Wish I would have seen your blog before, love the bedding! Is the background of the duvet white or ivory??
