Peaceful Sanctuary

Early in our marriage my hero and I agreed that we would not place a television in our bedroom.  We hoped the room would be a private refuge from the world and a place of peace and harmony.  We have done a pretty good job keeping our agreement. It is the only room in the house, outside of Saturday morning snuggles, that is Princess free which means we are free to display glass…without constant worry. Come on in…

One of my favorites collections…quilts! I think they lend a cozy element to any room.

The perfect place to curl up and read. A little patriotic touch with the pillows…plus a nod to my half British hero. Isn’t the antique Tibetan Cabinet beautiful?

Probably my most favorite furniture piece in the house is this antique Chinese Chicken coop…completely cleaned and restored as a wardrobe.

Before we had a Princess room, we had a guest room. It was decorated lovingly with English Victorian furniture and antique perfume bottles…not the safest element in a toddler’s bedroom. It makes a crowded but lovely display…safely away from busy little fingers.

When my hero and I were dating we were delighted to discover our mutual love of glassware.  This is a small sample of our merged collections…and a few recent purchases.  I love the afternoon light through this window.  It has often stopped me in my tracks with the beauty.

I am still speechless about the above picture. I blinked and this happened.

  2. Your bedroom is beautiful. It’s not easy to create a multi-cultural design and have it turn out this perfect. I think my favorite are the two chairs. You have done something here to be very proud of. Now you can relax and enjoy your summer with this adorable little sweetie pie.
    Happy Summer!

  6. Nooooo, she’s getting big too quickly. It’s scary how time happens even when we’re not watching. One thing I would watch all the time though is that beautiful display of glass. What a lovely collection you both have.
