Guest Picks: A Happy Bedroom
Esperanza Quilt - $228
I love the big florals and that most of the comforter is still white.
Italian Campaign Canopy Bed - $1,698
This has always been one of my favorite beds. It is kind of feminine, but it can also be quite masculine. I like its lines.
Green Street Shelves - $798
I read tons of books, so a bookshelf in my room to hold my current and fave reads would be nice. Of course, it would also give me more space to put pretty things too.
Genova Side Table - $298
I like the mix of the wood base and the marble top. It is a nice informal-formal mix.
Menlo Lamp - $148
Put this on my bedside table for late night reading. It is a sleek-looking light.
Jack Club Chair - $2,698
I love having a comfy reading/rocking chair in the bedroom, and this club chair would be my dream. I envision many late nights reading in this with a quilt draped over my legs.
Live Love Pillow - $68
This pillow is especially sweet, and I would place it on a chair in the room.
Thursday Evening By Claire Desjardins
I love these types of paintings, and I would love for this to be placed off-center over my bed.
Spindle Sconce, Cream - $110
Put these on the wall, please, because this vintage lighting is so cool. Just add some taper candles to them.
Ocean Locker Unit - $1,800
I have always wanted to use lockers as a dresser in my bedroom because it is unexpected. I especially like this turquoise color.
Awash Rug - $2,998
With all the colors already going on in this room, I thought a subtle rug would be needed. I love the worn-in feeling of this one.
Spindle Candlestick, Brown/Cream/Aqua - $44
Add this to the bedside table, along with a little clock and some books. I like the chippy patina of this candlestick holder. Candles make a room more romantic.
Brass Crisscross Swing Curtain Rod - $39
This bendable rod is cool because you just swing it open and close it when you want privacy.
Pintuck Crochet Curtain - $89
I love simple white curtains as much as I love white walls. This one is kind of really sweet and girly. The details are really subtle.
Antique Green Pie Safe Cabinet - $750
Add this to another side of the bed. I like this because I can hide more books inside or even store a few pillows.
Dairy Crates - $105
I like having crates or baskets in my bedroom to store additional quilts and afghans for those especially cold nights. Vintage crates are my favorite.
Kite Kilim Floor Pouf - $249
The kilim pattern is so hip! I would put this right by my leather reading chair to prop up my feet as I relax. It could also be used as a bedside table.
Metal Floor Mirror - $349
This simple full-length mirror is so beautiful. I like that the mirror is so large and can be the focal point, but there is still a little frame around it that makes it stand out from the wall.
