  1. Lory this is so beautiful! Of course, I love the touches of blue and all the texture. It’s amazing what you can find at Walmart!

      1. Just love the tranquil welcoming mood that you established . I’ve been a muted fan of yours for a long time Recently purchased a beach home and decorating a guest bedroom which has white wooden furniture with natural wood tops on dresser and plantation white shutter window treatment. I’m in need of ideas for the bed ensemble dressings. M E

        1. Thank you!! And that sounds like fun!! Sounds like you have a good start. I would just stick with neutrals and then you can always add pops with accent decor. Think linen, linen and more linen… 🙂 I’ll be updating some of our other bedrooms in the next couple of months, so you can stay tuned for more ideas.

    The saying “less is more” is more my style. I love decorators’ pictures but for the life of me I cannot figure out what to do with all the pillows on a bed when you have to go to sleep at night.
    I do like the new look in this room but I have also liked all of the others. It’s amazing the difference a few accessories can make. Keep inspiring us!

    1. So true about how a few changes can make a big difference! And thanks for the kind words… 🙂 Regarding the pillows, this is an area where hubby and I differ. He throws the pillows all over the place, while I pile them neatly on the ottoman bench.

        I love that you are gradually transitioning to a more relaxed style. We are more informal and I tried to work in a French Country feel but it wasn’t turning out the way I liked. I think I have put to much “French” and not enough “Country “! Using some of your suggestions will help me enhance a more vintage and time worn look. Reading your posts are like reading a good decor magazine such as Veranda! Stay warm!

        1. What a lovely thing to say, Cecilia! And yes, I’m leaning more and more relaxed by the day, while still maintaining a somewhat French feel… 🙂

  3. I like the new look. It looks and feels less formal and shall we say, delicate. This bedroom is very welcoming.

  4. Nice new look! I like everything but the bed skirt. I think it distracts from that gorgeous bed! I think your new decor direction in this room is perfect for a guest room/ office 😉

  5. The bedroom is beautiful. What color/brand of paint is the blue wall color?
