Vision for my bedroom

I don't know about you but my bedroom seems to be an afterthought as far as decorating and keeping it clean. I hope to change this. We have lived in our new house for over a year now and I still haven't painted over the old dingy antique cream color in there. I have been pinning a few images of what I envision for the space. I am still thinking white or light gray blue walls just because I need the room I sleep in to be very calm and restful. Maybe by talking about it and recording some images here it will help me get on the ball and make some changes. Cheap changes too. Like paint and using art/frames that I already have. The biggest cost I see having would be investing in a beautiful rug and maybe a chair.

 I love the above photo because of the whimsical sticks framing the bed. It's very impractical though, and my husband would hate it. The pillows are fluffy and inviting and the antique mirror is so pretty. This bedroom appeals to my grandma side.

 I love the circular gold mirror in this photo. It is classy and adds a little shine to the space. The black chair keeps the space grounded. I have a corner in my room that a chair like this would work perfectly in. An upholstered chair would be better in my opinion though. Also the wall color is spot on. Love this.

 This rug is so fun! It looks fluffy and so soft to step onto. I would love a huge rug like this under my bed but I bet it would cost an arm and a leg. I have two of each so maybe I could sacrifice one limb...

 This room is elegant and restful but a little boring? It needs a pop of color in the form of an accent pillow or something. Maybe some artwork or a brighter rug like the one below? I like the overall feel of this room though. It is clean restful and has some cozy elements.

I love this rug. If anyone wants to buy me one. That is all.

All of these pins can be found on my pinterest page. Follow me here

Happy Friday!

My Blogging Hiatus is Over

I'm ready to pick blogging back up.  I'm at a place in my life where I think I can handle some consistent blogging. Just to catch you all up on a few things that have happened in the past few years:

I now have two little boys: Sammy who is 3 and James who is 1.

We moved from North Carolina back to Tennessee

I stay at home with my little guys and I wouldn't have it any other way

I've been painting a lot in between naps, meals, cleaning, cooking, and playing superheroes

I feel like I'm in such a good place right now as far as my role as a mother and wife and also an artist.

I am still just one person with lots of dreams, ups and downs,  and more laundry than I would like to admit.

Here are some recent pictures of my world.
