Bedroom retreats...


How wonderful to be able to create a luxurious sitting area within the master bedroom. A perfect place to escape and relax. My bedroom has enough space to add a chair in the corner - a comfortable sitting area to enjoy some quiet times!

Wow, those rooms have such a great feel to them! Our bedroom is just awful right now, but it's not being prioritized, we need to finish the main rooms first. I'm desperate for a new bed, headboard, mattress, end tables... The list goes on.. Great inspirational post! :)

Lovely Amanda - love the colours in these pictures.

Things That Inspire said...

The first picture has aspects of my dream bedroom. A big tall window, luxurious curtains (with blackout lining) - two comfortable chairs (good for curling up in and reading) with a nice ottoman and side table. Perfection.

They're all lovely. We're lucky enough to have a little couch and table in ours. I sit there sometimes and do my makeup while listening to the radio.

Mmmm...such a luxury to have the space to put a chair and, maybe a table, in your bedroom...I can just about do it. I love the first one and the yellow one AND I could just about live with the pink I'm not really a pink girl, I'm afraid, but these images are quite soft. XXXX

Many thanks!!

Delightful boudoir images Amanda! The chair & footstool in #5 are perfect, I only have a teen-tiny little chair in our b/r, totally unsuitable for lounging on. But this has given me some wonderful inspiration to change that & soon. Thank you!

those drapes in the first image as beautiful!!! I have one small lounge chair in my room. It is somewhat of a tight fit but I really wanted a chair by the window to read and drink my tea while listening to the rain or watching snow fall.
It's comforting....and a must have.

All lovely rooms. I like the green bench in the second photo - so fresh and pretty. Oh, and that pink wallpaper in the last. I love a soft, barely-coloured bedroom but these brighter colours are so pretty.

What a marvelous post! I have a black kitchen - I love the photo of the dark kitchen.
