Do you have a safe haven? Is there one place in the entire world that you
feel absolutely safe, cared for and loved? For many of us, that place is in
our own homes and it is for me as well. But I have another safe haven where
I love to be and that place is at my Mother's house.
This is the bedroom that she completely redecorated for me when I went up
to visit her in Canada this fall. She is one amazing lady!
Come on in!
My Mom spent many long hours redoing this room and selecting just the right
pieces to make this bedroom a real haven for me when I visited. The pretty
hand painted nightstand is new. Above it is a beautiful picture from the
Victorian Trading Company and above the bed is another piece from them as
well. You can get your family name embroidered on a lace doily and have it
framed. It turned out just beautiful!
A vintage Jessica McClintock lace dress graces the wall.
It was found at a favorite antique store.
She made sure that I had all of the comforts of home including this gorgeous
pintuck comforter set. I can still feel it wrapped around me...so comfortable!
The pillows were glorious! They were memory foam pillows and were
probably the most comfortable pillows I've ever slept on!
A lovely warm throw and a picture book made
me feel right at home. This book is about Alphonse Mucha,
an art nouveau artist who is really popular.
Don't you just love this wrought iron settee? It is quite heavy and Mom
found it at Pier One. I love how the lush aqua cushion picks up the aqua
in the lady print on the wall to the left.
The gorgeous rose print above the settee was found at a thrift store and
she kept the original color of the frame to tie in with the dark walls.
This is the window seat where I spent many moments looking out my
home town below. It's always so good to be home with family...
The late afternoon sun has left the room in a dusky glow and it's the perfect
time for curling up and reflecting on how lucky I am to have such an
amazing woman for my Mother. She always makes it good to go home again...
