Sleeping with Rachel ;-)



I have been waiting
for our weather to turn cold...


so I could put my new Rachel Ashwell comforter
on the bed...

you didn't think I meant something else did you?


I love the soft pink rosy design,
so cheery...


and as luck would have it,
I already had this sheet set that matched the ruffles
on the comforter...
(that is also the reverse side pattern)


and I thought I would share my new bedroom wall color,
it is Gloaming by Martha Stewart...

since gloaming is a poet word
for twilight or dusk,
I thought it was a nice bedroom color...

I should really never read the names on cards,
they can turn love to hate
and vice versa...

and here is a link to the old color...


I like the soft blushy tone,
it's so relaxing...


I have had this vanity for a couple years
and it's been on my "to paint list"...

with the lighter wall color my "to paint list"
has grown...

I am lovin' it...


on the headboard 
wispy remnants of summer...

just pinch and sniff
to be propelled back to a summers day
and insure sweet dreams...



my bedside standards...
a vase for flowers
and this little hand dish to hold trinkets from the day...

Today I am joining...

and

Thanks for stopping by...

I love both colors. The blush glowing is softer but lavender is nice too. You are so lucky to have a girly house

Hi Bella
I like the new colour of your bedroom, that, the vintage decor and chandy over the bed make it look like a place for sweet dreams.
Of course the lavender on the headboard would contribute it's relaxing properties...who would want to even get out of bed in the morning? :-)

Cindy said...

what a sweet soft color in your beautiful romantic bedroom. All the colors in your house are amazing... and the sprig of lavender near the bed is a wondeful idea, i think i'll just copy that one, and grab some lavender from my garden today!

Hi Bella, what a beautiful bedroom. My living room, hall and guest room are all done in the same color! It is a very soothing color. I love your bed linen. I enjoy collecting vintage pillow cases and sheets, anything with roses. Rose pink is my favorite. Have a lovely evening! Delisa :)
