Lake House Bedrooms (8)

Do you ever dream about how you would decorate a second home if you ever had the chance? I do.

For instance, I often dream about how I would decorate a beach house if I ever had the chance. Or a mountain cabin. Or a lake house. Or a guest cottage.

This is one of those day dreams I hope to see fulfilled. One of these days.

In the meantime, I oooh and ahhh over the ones I see online.
And in this case…the one I got to sleep in.

An Unexpected Gift

Lake Cottage Master Bedroom (2)

Last week, after all the wedding planning, company coming to town, long distance road trips and conference attending, we packed up the family and went to the lake for a few days.

We arrived in shifts and left in shifts, due to everyone’s conflicting schedules, but we managed to all be together at least part of the time.

Every time you’re able to get away with the family is a gift but the unexpected gift came as everyone began planning the trip back home.

We’ve been painting our youngest daughter’s bedroom and I’ve discovered I’m a bit out of practice.

In the 10 years we lived at our previous home I painted every room in the house 3 times. This bedroom is one of two rooms I’ve repainted in this house and the only room to see 3 colors. Pink, yellow and now gray.

Karianne was 8 when we moved in so pink was the perfect choice. Yellow came along in our early teen years and now, at almost 17, we’ve moving on to the more sophisticated gray.

Builder’s don’t think about curtains.

It’s my job to think about curtains and I’ve come to the conclusion that Builders don’t think about curtains. Ever. Are you surprised?

Have you ever lived in a home with arched windows in a bedroom? A bedroom facing East, South or West?
Have you ever had windows built so close to the fireplace that they must have been part the fireplace design?
Or maybe you have a kitchen window reminiscent of the one above?

Then I imagine you agree with me.

But I digress.

This post isn’t about Builders it about these adorable, simply elegant, curtains!

Upholstered Headboard & Pillows

New Upholstered Headboard, Pillows and a Window Treatment

Upholstered Headboard & Pillows

Upholstered Headboard & Pillows (2)I seem to be drawn to tufted furniture. There’s something quite romantic about it, don’t you think? My Pinterest boards seem to reflect a love of tufting as well.

While not all tufted furniture has a feminine quality, like my friend Jenni’s velvet headboard and footboard, I do think it adds a touch of romance to a room.

In fact, this romantic velvet headboard was our main inspiration as we began choosing the fabrics and trims for Jenni’s pillows and window treatment.

As a young mom, with my four little chickens gathered around me, all under one roof, I couldn’t even imagine sending my kids to middle school much less the thought that one of them might eventually move 1500 miles away.

But that’s what happened. A few months after my oldest daughter Courtney graduated from College she told us she was moving to California.

Wait. WAIT! Does this has anything to do with white pillows? Best read in the same voice as “Is this a kissing book?”  :) 

Well, I’ll tell you…
