I Have A Blue Christmas in the Master Bedroom

Whenever I hear Blue Christmas, it reminds me of that song by Elvis.

You know the one, “I’ll Have A Blue Christmas Without You” …

That being said, I have a blue Christmas in the Master Bedroom this year.

I did not use the Winter Birds bedding this year.

I thought I would do something different and I did.

A New Cozy Space

I am joining The Scoop Party for the Cozy Room Tour.

So, today, I am presenting a “new cozy space” of mine.

~ ~ a space that was formerly an area designated as a second guest room/craft area.

What makes a space cozy for me???…

A place where I can curl up and enjoy a great cup of tea ~

~ ~ especially from this tea set that I purchased in France.

With the glow of a great scented candle, a wonderful magazine . .

~ ~ and a very soft throw (from France) close by..

Some pretties to surround you ~ ~

And a basket to house your favorite magazines ~

And a view that gives you a great sense of peace.

That can also be seen in the reflection of a mirror in the room.

Are you wondering what I did in this room?

Here is what the area looked like before:

The craft area is still there; however, the bed is not.

A family member needed a bed . . so off it went.

Here is my reveal of the newly appointed space.

A friend no longer needed this beautiful Lee Sofa ~ ~

~ ~ it had unfortunately faded from a taupe to a peach tone, obviously a flaw in the fabric.

We have a “pay if forward” attitude between us and since this space was empty ~ ~

~ ~ I was more than happy to receive this sofa.

With the exception of my “french treasures” ~ ~

~ ~ I “shopped the house” for this area.

Soft, comfy pillows a must in a cozy area.

I went searching for pillows in my “stash” that would coordinate with the sofa ~ ~

~ ~ I then realized I had the perfect ones..the ones I used for my Fall Porch decor.

I then remembered that I had a vintage paint by numbers painting stashed away . .

~ ~ that contained the perfect colors for the sitting area.

I was originally planning on placing the vintage French toy chest in another area ~

~ ~ but it seems to work well here and the storage is a bonus.

You can see part of my Martha Stewart Craft Furniture in this picture..

The pair of chairs I brought into this room were in the foyer ~ ~

~ ~ the Antique French buffet took up most of the space there.

I am now debating on whether to paint these chairs . .

The pillows in the chairs were in the media room and discovered them perfect for the chairs.

I was able to bring the two tables on each side of the sofa from various places in the house ~

~ ~ One of the tables was replaced by my antique French Commode from France.

My intentions in decorating are to create rooms that are warm and cozy ~ ~

~ ~ for family and friends to feel comfortable and welcome.

Thanks for visiting my new cozy space!
