PARTIAL BEDROOM REVEAL.

It seems like it takes me so long to put all of the final touches on my new home when I move. I guess I am what my father would call persnickety. 

No matter how large or small my homes have been I have always wanted them to be somewhere that I love walking into and then feeling comfortable as I live there. 


This little apartment is no different and it often requires me to sit and look at a space to know exactly what I want to do. 

I have partially finished my bedroom, finished being a relative term as I know I will always be tweaking it. 

Today I thought I would share one corner of the space, as it is the most finished part of the room. 

I love when I walk into it and see this.


This room has wonderful light with its wonderful floor to ceiling window,

Over the bed I have hung an original oil painting along with four vintage butterfly prints.


I decided to use my brass lamps in here. I have had these lamps for about 40 years, but didn't use them in my last apartment. I'm happy to be using them again. 

I also continued the butterfly theme with the magazine holder. It's nice to have magazines by my bed for late night reading when I want some decor inspiration.


This old wicker chair is a wonderful place to sit and read or just gaze out of the window. My Betsy Wetsy doll that I got for Christmas 62 years ago sits there most of the time, but she doesn't begrudge me my time there too. 

I've draped one of my quilts over the back of the chair because I wanted a true cottage feel in this room.


I've simplified the shelf in this apartment with a plant, a plate, a christening gown, and a blue straw hat. 



Yes, my plants continue to multiply and I've got plans for the other wall in this room for more plant display. (I may need a twelve step program)


  1. Hi Laura your bedroom is looking great. What a treasure to have the doll for 62 years. Your vintage prints look pretty over the bed too.

    Hopefully you had more positive garden surprises.

  4. I'd love to find a christening gown similar to that one. It just adds something special to your room. I see your space as cozy and flea market style mixed with cottage style. A favorite look of mine. I know you enjoy the light from that window. Happy new home, Laura!

    1. Thanks, Brenda. I love hunting for the perfect pieces and getting them at very reasonable prices. The christening gown was in a box of antique linens I bought at auction a few years ago. I just love it.

  8. What a sweet spot you've created in your bedroom! I love the blues and whites. I had a tiny rental house a few years ago, and could just barely fit in my queen bed and a dresser... but I had the prettiest blue and white quilt on the bed, with the white low antique dresser, and a very similar white wicker chair in the corner with a quilt on the back (like yours!) and I LOVED that little bedroom! What a trip down memory lane when you mentioned your Betsy Wetsy doll. I had one too! That was my first baby doll and probably the only one I had when I was a little girl! What fun memories! I'm glad you're enjoying your new home and location too. xoxo Marilyn

    1. I think we are kindred souls. I think this is my favorite bedroom. It is so cozy. Betsy has always been with me. Like me she has aged.
