  1. Very pretty and light. I especially love the painted secretary. We just took the twin pine sleigh beds out of one of the guest rooms this weekend! I am turning it into a beautiful closet (chandelier,chaise, and all ) very happy to do this, although feeling a little guilty getting rid of the beds, always liked them a lot. Not being used though. The colors in your bedroom are lovely and cheerful. Looking forward to your next ideas. I like the dark side chests, but can see your next ones will be nice too.

    1. Thanks so much, Jillian! And your closet sounds wonderful. Do not feel guilty at all! It’s your home. It should be exactly as you want it… ๐Ÿ™‚

    Great room! I want to thank you for having decent and real artwork in your bedroom…oftentimes people have great taste in furnishings but then it just falls apart at the end W their choice of artwork..again thx!!!

    1. Thanks, Jenn! Yes, the investment in artwork can be intimidating for many, but I like having nice pieces too… ๐Ÿ™‚

    I had the same problem when I changed my bedroom furniture. My French Country style bed, tall chest and armoire are a distressed cream color. I needed a bedside table and another small chest for near the door. The tall chest has a dark wood top so I choose darker tones to ground all the cream. the first piece I bought for a bedside table was too wide and too short. I moved it across the room and the dark wood/burgundy painted Bombay chest is perfect next to the bedroom door. I finally found a small one drawer cabinet to use as a nightstand. The curved front is a tie-in to the rest of the furniture. It has a medallion like dark gold design on the drawer and door. The most recent addition is a padded bench at the end of the bed. I knew it was the right pieces the minutes I saw it My headboard has an iron inset and the bench has an iron crosspiece between the cream painted legs and a linen top. A tall bed makes having a bench a major plus!

    Love this room! A question when one purchases a white or near white fabric headboard – does it get dirty from leaning against it when sitting in bed? Realize pillows help, but still heads can lean back and that has the potential for dirt/oil.

    I’d love to get a new white headboard, but I don’t want to spend a lot of time cleaning it. Again, beautiful headboard! Thanks – MMR

    1. Thanks, Margaret! That was certainly a concern of mine, but we do have big euro shams plus 2 sets of pillows each, so our heads don’t seem to touch the headboard. We’re also not the tallest people around… ๐Ÿ˜‰ I have a basic theory with home furnishings. I’d rather live with what I love for as long as it lasts, than buy something I don’t love and have it last forever. For this reason, I bought a fairly reasonable headboard and of course I hope it lasts a long time, but at least I will enjoy it more than the dark wood bed I had before.

    I don’t see a link to the pretty green and white pillow shams. Do you have a source for them? Thanks!

  6. Beautiful room! I love your pics, and personally, that green wall just brightens my mood! Love it =)

    1. Thank you, Diana! Yeah, every time I think about getting away from color, I remember how good it makes me feel… ๐Ÿ™‚

    Those sweet pea sheets are tdf. One thing: It’s probably my computer, but the headboard reads as grey to me.

    1. Thanks! I do love the sweet pea pattern and it makes me happy to wrap up in it… ๐Ÿ™‚ The headboard is definitely not grey, but it does have some tweedy flecks of beige in it.

    Oh I love your headboard it is beautiful and the secretary gorgeous … just everything about your room is wonderful

  9. Norma Rolader says:

    Absolutely gorgeous and and refreshing

  10. Love your new headboard, Lory! I have been thinking and looking online for vintage and new headboards/bed sets while we are waiting to move into our new-to-us home here in Texas… Hubby doesn’t know it yet, but I WILL be buying one eventually since our daughter has our cherry carved bed set, which was a queen. We moved up to a California king but think we may step down to a king with the new house and sell the former.

    Enjoy your new bed and I love the desk you have. Will be following your links… ๐Ÿ˜‰

  11. That secretary is especially pretty.

  12. I am in love with your floral bedding. Do you know if it is still available, and where I might find it? Beautiful room, thank you!

    1. Thank you! Yes, it is D. Porthault and they carry it at their namesake store and at Bergdorfs. The pattern is Pois de Senteur. Fair warning – it’s rather pricey.

      1. Thank you for preparing me, I might have fallen over! I think I will just have to enjoy it in your lovely pictures. Thank you again for the inspiration.

  13. I know I’m reading this after you’ve made other changes to your bedroom. I love the painted piece in the corner as well as a few other things you’ve kept. Glad the paintings above the bed are gone though ๐Ÿ˜‰
    Personally even after seeing your latest update to the bedroom in later posts, I’m still not not quite feeling the love for the dark side tables. (Maybe you now have changed them and I haven’t seen the post?)
    French country is my jam too! Love the style and it never goes out of style IMO.
