My Romantic Bedroom

I completed the long dreaded "cleaning of the closets" job in the master bedroom.   I am so glad to have that behind me......whew!     It is so nice to open my closet and know exactly where to hang up my current out fit.   Before,  I just hung it wherever there was an place that I could crowd it!
 After cleaning the closets,   I decided to fluff up the bedroom a little,,,,nothing major.     It was a no cost project as I just shopped the house.

I added a copper mirror left over from our daughters wedding reception to the mantle.    I brought in a pair of poodle dog lamps that were in the family room.   I put the lit garland up last Christmas,  so I just left it up since it's almost time to decorate for Christmas!     

The nights are getting cooler,  so I added a vintage comforter to the bed.

I brought in two blue pillows from the living room.....

This one is my favorite.....they lived happily ever after.    I had it on the sofa in the family room.

I found this Always Kiss Me Goodnight sign in the back of my closet when I cleaned it out.

The shoes and picture were on the mantle,  so I moved them to the chesser when I put the new vignette on the mantle.    The poodles were in the cabinet on the side of the fireplace in the family room.

All I did to my cross was give it a good cleaning.

I moved the chair that was at my desk to the living room and brought a chair in from the sun room to replace it.     I had bought a new chair at a yard sale a couple of  weeks ago  (for $3...can't wait to show you the makeover it got)  and that chair went into the sun  room where this one was. 

Here are my two closets all clean and tidy!

What do I do with all those pillows on the bed at night?

They go on the the chair.....

The rest of the pillows go on the trunk at the end of the bed.

  I have the bed all turned back and ready for bedtime!


  1. Everything looks lovely! Cute sign and love the lacey nighty!

  2. Oh- I need to do my closets again! That is a big job and well-done, Penny. Love that you have your lights up from last year...a step ahead of the game! Hope you have a romantic Sunday morning! xo Diana

  3. You must have a ton of dusting to do on a regular basis! So lovely and you must have the best husband ever to survive all the frills and lace! Now THAT is what I call love!!! You lucky girl!

  4. SO feminine. My present husband would tolerate it..and does. Rose strewn wallpaper..lots of roses around the house..but the family room, not at all. Definitely not a femine room. And that is where he is much of the time. However he doesn't seem to mind one bit, my lace and flowers. I love your feminine home..and here's the thing, Penny, your husband must be so ultra secure in his manhood that he doesn't give a fig how you decorate as long as YOU ARE HAPPY. I consider you, as Rose does, one lucky woman!

  5. Your bedroom is very pretty and "girlie" and your husband doesn't mind??!! My husband will tolerate some laces and roses and most of my "victorian" stuff. But I try to make it comfortable for him too :)

  6. Penny,
    You have one of the most romantic looking bedrooms that I have ever come across!! So pretty and you know how jealous I am of your firplace in the bedroom!! Stunning!!


  7. What a romantic bedroom! Love all the lace. A fireplace in the bedroom would be a real addition. Thanks for sharing, Penny.
