Now that the days are shorter and we are heading into winter, I am focused on making my bedroom cozier. To break the monotony of working at the dining table, I will often read the papers and catch up online in bed. Sometimes I work up there to get away from the dogs and family and constant distractions.
However, my bedroom is a bit of a mishmash. We have a gorgeous sleigh bed, a 2 seater couch that desperately needs to be recovered, some side tables, and a jute rug with Oriental rugs I’ve inherited from my family layered on top. It kind of works, but not really.
The bureau above as a bedside table and the grey drapes are my favorite bits in this room. My flea market chandelier would be good too over our bed, it would help with the lighting. But what I love most about this room is that it’s chic and a tad masculine. I tend to go overboard with scalloping and monograms, etc. which does not thrill my husband. This would be a good compromise.
