1. Not sure where my last post went..:)..but I do wonder why Brenda doesn't respond to anyone's questions on here. It is a lovely bedroom, however.

  2. I was going to comment, but then realized, as I read through other comments and questions, Brenda never answers them. It really is a lovely room.

  3. I love the colours and the furniture in your bedroom. Thanks for the look!

  4. Like everywhere else in your home, your bedroom is so cozy and welcoming! No wonder you love to spend so much time in there! I did make my bedroom an oasis, and I'm so glad I did! I need a place to escape when the girls have friends over, and I need peace and quiet. It was worth every penny I spent on the renovation to create my master suite!

  5. What a sweet room, Brenda. I must confess my bedroom is one of the messiest rooms in my house. I know that I really need to get busy and straighten it out. It's so easy to just shut the door and not think about it until you have to clear the bed of something in order to go to bed! I do know it's important and have been doing little pieces as I can but there's still a lot more to organize. Thanks for this post which reminds me to keep at it.

  6. Your bedroom is so cozy and so ready to get comfortable in. Love your quilts, beautiful and wonderful "art". They do make a room!!!. I, like others, that have left comments would be interested to know what pillows you purchased. My DH and I have our own bedroom. (I snore,I guess)Ha, I know that, But DH has arthritic pain in his neck, so it's hard. without pain, to turn his head/neck,if he has to back up, when parking the car. His pillows seem to always go flat,so then his neck hurts. He has tried (LOTS) of pillows, two that cost ($100) on TV, bought the same brand in town, and we returned them after one night,(we left the plastic cover on) because it was not any better than the cheaper pillows. If you have any answers, I would appreciate hearing your opinion. Thanks Brenda, I love seeing you every day. Bonnie in WI oxoxox

  7. That shade of green is so restful and you know that I always love seeing your quilts. You have a great working / resting setup there…it truly is an oasis.

    I had to laugh when I clicked on to this post though. My youngest and his dog are here for awhile and after changing in to sweats and a bathrobe ( It got COLD here ) I had his dog and my cat still trying to decide how to get along…it was NOT an oasis moment ha ha! 🙂

  8. Your whole house is an oasis. Love how you decorate. I agree with you about the bedroom, it should be peaceful and relaxing. When we move, I do the living room and bedroom first. When neighbors come to welcome us I can invite them in to at least one room that is done. They are often amazed at how quickly the room is set up. Having the bedroom ready after long hours of cleaning and unpacking is delightful. Thanks Brenda for your openness in sharing your life. You are an inspiration.

  9. I love my bedroom also. I like to retire there early and read and watch TV. I need to get some new curtains for mine but haven't found what I like yet. Yours is so cozy and warm. Mine is Pink!!

  10. I agree about the bedside lamps. Ideally, sconces are the best for reading as their light is more direct, but that's not always feasible. I've never quite understood the point of small lamps on small bedside tables, unless one's intent isn't to read.

    Too many pillows does not float my boat. I don't want to have to take forever to make and unmake my bed, much less find a place for the pillows when they are not on the bed. I have three decorative pillows on the bed, and that's more than enough for me.

    A good mattress and a good pillow are two of the most important items in the home. No such thing as spending too much, if that's what it takes for comfort.

    I've always paid close attention to how our bedroom feels. In our last home it was my favorite room in the house. It was beautiful, with a four poster canopied bed, tray ceiling, velvet chaise, gorgeous chandelier, lots of light and room for a pretty vanity and armoire. Sometimes I miss it, but I'm happy with our small but functional room now too.

  11. I'm been considering a diffuser. What brand is yours? Are you happy with it? Does it leave a mist on your furniture? I have my mom's antique bedroom set and worry about moisture settling on the wood.



  12. Your bedroom is very pretty. I love the colors and the quilts make it look so inviting, warm and comfortable. If you don't use the desktop computer anymore and it's old, why keep it?

  13. What a cozy, inviting bedroom…I think it's the quilts I'm drawn to. You give me so many terrific ideas to make a house a home, no matter what size, XOXO

  14. Love your bedding and the idea of the votive candles in the muffin tin is so cute! Have a great weekend 🙂

  15. Very cozy and inviting. My parents bought us very expensive pillows a few years ago for Christmas. I would never pay that much, but I have really appreciated them. My shoulders ached at night at that has stopped because of the pillows. I find that certain things really matter as I get older, like a good pillow and good shoes. No longer can I wear cheap tennis shoes or flip flops.

    I have so many quilt tops started. I really need to get some finished so I can put them around my home.

  16. So funny…Just last night, as I was headed to bed, I thought out loud to myself (yes, I talk to myself quite often! Lol!)," I really need to put a little effort into my bedroom… I want it to be my sanctuary." And then this morning, there's your post! It always amazes me how the universe works!!! Thanks for sharing, Brenda. Enjoy your weekend! Donna

  17. Your bedroom is lovely! You have such an eye, especially for the right touches of color.

  18. I love your bedroom Brenda and the way you have made it comfortable and surrounded by things you love. I have to say it has inspired me. We will be moving to a smaller house in July and I fully intend to make my bedroom my oasis. Yes my husband and I have separate bedrooms because of snoring and apparently I fidget around!! I think I do, I have noticed that now having my own bed! So it works well for both of us. I have never thought of having plants in the bedroom. I love cactus so I may have a few of those around. I don't tell everyone we have separate bedrooms or you get that look! I am of an age now though that I just shouldn't care what others think. It looks as if the rain has stopped now after 2 solid days of downpours. Luckily none came in the house.

  19. I love how all the colors work together. I especially like the balance of the quilts with the mirror in the center. Whenever I have moved, I have always tackled the bedroom first. Also, it seems to be the room that I refresh the most. xoxo Su

  20. Hi Brenda,

    Do you mind sharing the brand names/model names of these pillows that are good for you? I am having trouble finding quality pillows. thanks

  21. I enjoy seeing your bedroom. I love that green that you used and your quilts makes me feel warm and happy. Could you share the name of the pillows you bought at Bath, Bed & Beyond? Didn't know they would exchange them if they didn't work? I have looked at them and they are so expensive and so many to choose from. Thanks Brenda.

  22. Thanks for this tour of your lovely bedroom. It helps me realize that we need to make some changes — taller lamps and better pillows to start with!
