Enjoying the Morning Light


I love my master bedroom. It's located on the southeast side of the house and gets the best morning light. In the winter time the light is softer - have you ever noticed that?

There is no TV in this room. That has always been our rule and I'm glad for it.


This room is not perfect. You can't tell in the picture but our dresser is totally scratched up. Our lab was very scared in a storm once and jumped on top of it. Paul says that's part of the story of our lives. I like that point of view.


A chair to sit and put your socks on. I bought this little cutie in downtown Edmond a few years ago. It was yellow and I painted it.

A well made bed. We have a comforter that matches the pillows also but I just enjoy this matellase so much that the comforter rarely comes out.

A few days ago Kim at Daisy Cottage asked us if we make the bed. I have to! The world doesn't feel put together unless the bed's made.

We don't have a tv in our room either. You've got great colors and I love your sock chair!

First of all, what a pretty room. I love it. We have a TV in our room and I hate it. Thank you for your comment about my dogs smiling... that was one of the nicest things anyone has said. Are you out from the ice storm?

I love your bedroom. The bookshelves are so wonderful! I love the lightness of your room too. Very serene.
Hugs,

I love the chair and the built in book case. We have lots of attic space behind our room that I would like to do something like that with.

Hi Stacey,
Your MB is really beautifully done.
Love the soothing wall color and the iron piece.

Hope your weekend is going well. ~Melissa :)

That chair has beautiful detail on it. I always make the bed. Sometimes it's close to noon before it's done. But I can't stand to get into an unmade bed. Isn't that silly? Your bedroom is really well put together. Your Paul sounds like a gem.

Your bedroom looks very serene & restful. I'm impressed that there's no TV! My husband would die if there wasn't a TV in our bedroom, LOL!

I love how you decorated your master bedroom...so warm and inviting! I can't believe your lab jumped up on your dresser...poor thing! I'm not sure who I feel worse for...your or your dog! :)

I always enjoy seeing people's personality coming out in their home decors. Your bedroom is beautifully decorated, and I like the story of your dog in the storm...I say scratches add character. We do not have a television in our bedroom either. We both like it that way. By the way, the "Nothing Bundt Cakes" bakery is in Grapevine, TX.

Love your room....the red accents are gorgeous!

That is so true about scratches adding character...I just have to continue to remember that! My wood floors are getting very scratched from Gertie's nails...even when I have them clipped. She and the cat love to chase each other around the house and it's so funny to watch, but sometimes I get upset because I think I can never have a perfect wood floor. Between dogs, cats, and boys, it's impossible!

I wouldn't have it any other way though :-)

What a well put together room. Your little "sock" chair is so cute. What a great idea to paint it red. But I have a TV in my room and I wouldn't live without it. I guess that's why it's - to each it's own.... Robyn

Your bedroom is very pretty and clean!! I agree with you on the bed being made. The red chair is so pretty.

We have a tv in our bedroom. I don't like it. I like to read before I go to bed...in the quiet! I used to make the bed every day and trying to get back in the habit.

Bo said...

Hi Stacey...your bed chamber (fancy, huh?) looks so restful...and you've poofed the bed pillows perfectly! ;-) Bo

What a sweet way to look at the scratches on your dresser. Of course I like shabby chic & garden cottage decorating so scratches are charming to me. Chips, dings, scratches they give a sense of history.

Your bedroom is beautiful, morning light is my favorite, one of the reasons I can't bear to "sleep in". I am in love with that red chair!

Jill said...

Stacey,
I love your beautiful blog...I can't believe I haven't dropped in before! I'm slippin'.

Your bedroom is beautiful. I just love red! I LOVE the pillows and I caught a little peek of a very cute curtain.

I will add you to my blog roll...looks like we have a a bit in common!

Helen said...

My favorite is the chair you painted ... it's lovely. I do have a television in my bedroom but I don't share my bed with anyone so it's kind of nice to have HGTV going softly with timer set for 60 minutes...I never even know when it turns itself off. And I have the sweetest decorating dreams.

You have a very pretty bedroom. I wish we didn't have a tv in ours! Twyla

Karol said...

Stacey,

Gorgeous MB! I feel the exact same way about my bed being made. I love that red chair, too.

Karol :0)

Amber said...

beautiful room! We don't have a tv in our bedroom either. We used to, but always ended up apart and watching our own thing. We spend alot more time together now that we only have one tv!!

Sweetie said...

Your bedroom is beautiful. It's so bright and cheery. I really like your husband's way of thinking. I make my bed as soon as my feet hit the floor!
Hugs,
Sweetie

If my beds aren't made I feel like the whole house is messed up.Love your room.

Nancy said...

Stacey, I love your bedroom! The bed is gorgeous with those pillows! I can see why I like your style so much...it is much like mine! Love the color combination you use! Blessings, Nancy

Ms. Tee said...

Your bedroom is just gorgeous! :) And the lighting is so cheerful. I agree with your husband, I like furniture that has a story behind it, too. :) My favorite is that sweet little chair!

Stacey,

Pretty room! Love the colors! I have never missed a day of making my bed....can't start the day without the bed made! Funny how we are. No TV in the bedroom for me. They say, whoever "they" are, bedrooms should be for sleeping and intimacy only. Remove tv's, computers, bills etc :)
