Getting Bedroom Ideas...

Now that I've been changing up my living space, I want to do the same in my bedroom. I've started, but I'm looking for a bit of inspiration before I proceed. 

So off I go to Pinterest to see what I can find. Red and blue, country or cottage, is what I'm looking for.

I love all the colors I've been painting around here the last few seasons. But I'm missing my reds and blues. Getting a little tired of the turquoise blue. May have to go darker. 

Well, like they say, it's a woman's prerogative to change her mind.

I can see that painting is in my near future...

Now, I ask of this not gorgeous Pinspiration?

Now is this pretty stinkin' cute or what? And I thought I was clever with the linens in the kitchen window...

I do believe if I owned that tall bed, I might fall out of it in the middle of the night and break my silly neck.

Love, love, love this!

I don't think the paisley pillows are "me," but I'm not gonna argue with Sarah Richardson!

Well, well, well...

When what should I run across on Pinterest but this. Anyone remember this? It was back in Texas. I already have that very quilt up over my bed right now. But there is no link, because as you know after I moved here I lost 1500 posts, and this was one of them.

Sideboard look familiar? Was red, now orange. Probably going back to red...

I adore this color palette. But I don't know... I tend to go for a deeper darker blue.

Maybe more the color palette above? 

We all know I can't go out and buy stuff to completely change it. I've got to shop the closets. So we'll see what I can come up with.

Got any favorites?

  1. I'm so glad you're going back to your reds..........I love navy too.. Changed my summer quilt to a lighter shade of blue but still have my quilt with vivid red, navy, gold and white.. Found it at Walmart many years ago.

    Failed to mention that I hope Charlie will be okay and that the "bump" doesn't come back. We don't ever want our fur babies to be sick or have anything wrong with them.

    I have been moving furniture in my living room several times. Each time I say it's going to stay that way until Christmas...........but it doesn't. I'm sure there will be changes again after Halloween.

    Will be waiting to see and get ideas from what you will be doing to change colors in your home.

  2. I forgot to mention Charlie in my last comment too... I really do hope that thing doesn't come back. Poor baby :(

    I like all the pictures, but I think the second one and the eighth one are my favorites :)


  3. Brenda, I just ordered a red and white ohio star quilt from and it is gorgeous! Reasonable too, $135.00 for a queen size! I'm making a red ticking stripe dust ruffle and shams to go with it and I already have white quilted shams. I think its gonna look good!

  4. Brenda, I think if you have that red love in you, it will always come through! I have never seen that photo, you should put your name on it and then repin it so we can bring it back out! You are very talented! I am always chasing red/blue/green and can't say which I love the most.

  5. Hi Brenda! Oh, I love red and you do too so go for it! I love that quilt and I remember your Texas home. Sorry those posts were lost. How's little Charlie's head today?
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

    1. He's fine. Poor little guy, when I would go to touch it he'd run.

  6. I think the one with the blue and white pillows, white and blue pillows, and the red pattern bedding is my favorite.

    When I first saw the one with your old room, my first thought was that it looks just like something Brenda would do, and low and behold, I scroll and read that it was your room!

  7. Brenda I so loved those old posts and the garden pics. in Texas. I'm so ready for the wood floor in my bedroom to be stained so I can finally put my bed skirt and pretty bedding on and hang up my pictures.

  8. Yes, yes, yes I love your inspiration pics!

  9. Brenda
    I remember your room as I was following you way back when....
    I love photo #1, #5, and #6. No doubt you will come up with
    some great stuff hiding in your closets!

  10. If you go back to your reds, what will you do with the tiles that you put on your kitchen walls? I love the red also. I really like pic #1 with the red and greys.

    1. It will remain. I worked too hard on that to change it. It will blend right in. I will have many colors. There's no "color police" telling me how many I can choose to use!

  11. That's funny that you ran across your own photos when looking for inspiration. I have always thought that you are so good with using color, composition and layering.

  12. Brenda,
    That bedding is so cheerful and pretty. Love that first quilt too. Oh la la that is awesome.

  13. My favorites are #2...#6..and your bedroom in Texas!

  14. I'm going to miss your orange. Your rooms looked not only well designed but so very happy as well. I'm sorry to say I'm not a red lover. Red only comes out at Christmas and. tire of it easily.

    1. There will still be orange, Kari! It's not going away.

  15. I love your inspiration pictures! It's going to be so fun to do a make over! I have to say that the first photo (of the quilt) is my quilt in the magazine. I made the sample for It's Sew Emma. I am so glad it made it into your group of photos!

    1. Oh my goodness, I think that quilt is just the most beautiful thing!

  17. I really like the very last color pallet that you posted today. I remember your bedroom from Texas too. I have followed you for along time. I am a true lover of the reds. When you started to paint all the other colors in your apartment, I wondered how long it would be before you brought some more red back in. Don't get me wrong, the other colors are pretty (I am a lover of colors) but I can't let go of my reds either. Please keep us posted, I really enjoy watching the changes in your home. We live in a small bungalow and it is painted a brighter yellow, with the trim on the house some of it red, some of it orange & I have dark blue shutters on each window. Sounds weird, but I get a lot of compliments on it. We should each enjoy & love where we live. Keep up the good work!

  18. I like the all!! You know me, the redder, the better! ;-)

  19. Number 8 it is! I posted that same photo a few years ago as the inspiration photo for our guest room. The room didn't turn out like the photo, but I still am drawn to that look. I need red in my house, too, and that's why I had to paint over the orange kitchen walls. Have fun dreaming up a new look!

  20. madly adore no.1.. might have to replicate that for my room this late fall/winter..

  21. I love # 8! But then when fall came I'd probably want it a little cozier. However, can you imagine # 8 with sun shining on snow outside the window? Lovely!

  22. I love red. The more the better!

  23. Looking forward to seeing what you do, Brenda! Lately, I am finding myself attracted to red again! I have some pieces to paint and now to find the right shade of red!

  24. Ralph Lauren stripped sheets is so me. But heck, I'd take just about any of them.

  25. I have been wanting to see pictures of your home; and I am glad you are painting. I like the last set because they seem to have more statement than the other. I think I would tire of the first because the patterns do not go all over the piece.

  26. I wish I had my cannon ball bed back. I sold it six years ago. It would go in a small room I use as an office. It was full sized.

  27. Blue, yellow and red is perfection to me.

  28. Right before you lost your posts, I had been ill and spent a few days rereading your blog from the very beginning and enjoying your photos. I was in total shock when that happened. I was glad I had had one last look, but wish I had saved your pics to my computer. I may have saved some, I need to go back and check.

  29. I just love the second to last color... So bright and cheery!

  30. Brenda, looking at your old bedroom and how many pretty things makes me sad, you have had to give up some many things in your life! r
