Fridays at Home: Bedroom Eyes

3rd February 2012

I’m feeling a bit under the weather today, and it’s super duper gloomy outside, so there is nothing going on at my house. That doesn’t mean we shouldn’t have Fridays at Home, though, right? I can think of no better way to spend a Friday than in something comfy with some soup, the pup, a good book, and maybe a re-viewing of this week’s Downton Abbey…and pictures of beautiful, comforting spaces I’d love to relax in.

In the meantime, I’ll leave you some of the spaces I’ve found on Pinterest lately that make me drool a little bit.

I love decorating with maps. If I could I’d have maps in every room. This one is particularly beautiful, and that looks like a perfect reading chair for the corner of a bedroom.

Do I even need to tell you why I love this room? That bed! Those suitcases! That amazing light fixture. I love everything about this space, and I want to get tucked under those covers stat.

For years when I first began dreaming of having my own space, I wanted to buy a giant map and use it as a headboard. That was, until, I grew up a little and realized just how expensive those kinds of maps are. I still want it, though. A girl can dream…

I’m not wild about the zebra rug, but honestly I love this space. Those lacquered walls with that gold sofa/chaise thingie are amazing. It looks incredibly decadent, doesn’t it? Another perfect seating space for your boudoir.

When it comes to my bedroom, I love decadence. Everyone thought I was nuts when I wanted to paint my bedroom Ralph Lauren brown, but I knew it would look elegant and feel really secluded. Three years later, and I wouldn’t change a thing. It’s my own little haven with a sofa for watching TV, reading, or taking naps (and occasionally piling up laundry).

Do you have a corner of your house that makes you feel super relaxed? Or do you need to do some redecorating to carve out some space for yourself?
