My Dreamy bedroom!

I love pretty things! So when we moved to Florida, my hubby said it was a good time for me to have my ‘dream bedroom’! We found the Lady of Shallot print years ago and it has always been in my bedroom but moving to a new house gave me the opportunity to design a room around this painting!

These are my favorite linens...new from Lavender Fields ! Visit their online store! They have the MOST beautiful linens!

But this past week when I was at ‘my Thrift store’ the lady working in the linens was just hanging these up!

Aren’t they RETRO and FUN?!

Then another day, I found this embroidered pillowcase with a crochet edging!

So this morning I fluffed the pillows and took some photos!

my friend Sherry from Back 2 Vintage  says I have been ‘bitten by the vintage bug’ and I think this proves it!

Gorgeous linens Diane. They do look very retro. Love your room with that big gorgeous window of sunlight streaming in.

Kathy said...

Yes, I can see how two great minds think alike. Although the bed I pictured was a guest bed - still working on Springing up my bed - will share soon - hope - started another pillow and made a mistake - had to walk away - the outdoors is calling me too!

I love your beautiful bed linens! I always enjoy finding new sheets and pillows cases for my bed. New linens just give the whole room a brand new look! You can change the feeling of the room by simply changing out your linens from time to time! Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful day! xoxo Kim

I really like your bedding. They are preppy with the green and pink. Preppy is back, so you are way ahead of the curve! Have you seen the new House Beautiful Issue with the preppy colors in it? Your bedding could be in there! :D

I'm loving those linens. Those pillow cases with the flowers remind me of the flower stickers that were so popular back in the late 60's. I had them all over my room in every size and color. Thanks for sharing these with us.

Diane Writes said...

I love floral prints. They are so beautiful, calm and refreshing to look at.

I love your bedroom too. The wooden headboard and the view of the lush greeney is just so perfect.

Thank you for the comment you left in my blog too. I appreciate your visits. :)

Wishing you more happiness!

Hi Diane
I love vintage pillowcases and pillow shams. I have been buying them too and love them the most. I have used some of them to make dresses for my granddaughter and aprons a well...but you have reminded me I may need to thrift some more.
Yours are so very pretty...and your room is nice and bright..
Judi

Vicki said...

Susan said...

Being bitten by the Vintage bug does strange things. You will find your self wanting to stop in every thrift store you see, go to every yard sale, and have with drawals if you do not stop. But don't be afraid, it can be cured by simply buying something vintage. Well at least until the itch starts again. LOL

I love your linens!

Vintagesouthernlife said...

Beautiful vintage linens. Your bedroom is lovely.

Alicia@ eco friendly homemaking said...

Oh your bedroom is just beautiful!! I love the linens.

pamq said...

Love the new ruffled linens, but those vintage pillowcases are so cool!

I wish I would have had those in my bedroom when I was growing up!

Mind Movies 2.1 said...

Those linens are definitely lovely!

wow. very nice

Vee said...

Oh it looks vintage and c.o.z.y. Love it!

LindyLouMac said...

I love your bed linen, it would go well in our bedroom. What I do find interesting is that you sleep with the window behind the bed. This is not something I have ever considered, we always face the windows to enjoy the view when we wake up :)

Micki said...

I have the same taste in bed linen...Love it all!
Micki

Lallee said...

You have succeeded in creating that dreamy bedroom!

Joy said...

Beautiful linens. My Gma used to make those pretty stitched pillow cases too. You found a real prize at the GW. We had a beautiful day here in St. Louis and then today it is back in the low 50's and overcast..
