Winter Master Bedroom

Hello Dear Readers!

As soon as the Christmas trees came down, I fluffed the Great Room for Winter Decor,

doing the usual of changing out pillows on the chairs and sofa and transitioning

the mantel from Christmas to a mantel of Winter decor and adding accessories

that will create a cozy ambience for winter.

Being that we are currently in a rental home, a.k.a. The Berry Patch House,

I am careful  not to purchase new things, unless they fit the requirement of versatility

throughout the house and do I really need it!

So as far as pillows go, I reached into my stash and gathered pillows for cozy winter decor.

In the meantime, rather than putting away the “Christmas” pillows  from the Great Room,

I shuffled them to another room. Love how you can use pillows for more than one season

and in other rooms too!

So where did they land?

Spring Upper Porch ~ 2016

I have been patiently waiting for the all clear of the pollen season to be over,

so that I could start on refreshing the porches for Spring.

Today, I present the upper back porch. One of the three porches that we use the most.

My friend Martha who relocated to the Lone Star State had this beautiful flower pot

that I inherited which is the inspiration piece for my Spring decor for the porch.

The Upper Porch Dressed for the Holidays with Chinoiserie

It was supposed to be a birthday and Valentine’s Day gift,

an outdoor rug that I saw in the Frontgate catalog

that I fell in love with!

I ordered it and they said it was on back order.

OK . . . I can wait, but it took 9 months! . . . . But have to say, it was worth the wait.

Fall Porch 2015 and A Giveaway

I know that Fall is approaching when I see the beautiful mums in the garden centers

and even the grocery stores. As soon as they appear, I have this need to buy some

to begin decorating one of my porches.

The porch you see from all of the rooms on the main floor.

Master Bedroom Fall Makeover

The Master Bedroom Fall Makeover was the first on my list for transitioning into Fall.

Could it be because it’s the easiest one for me? Or could it be that this room

is not as visible to others . . . and the thought of changing things out for Fall

when it is still warm and the leaves have not turned colors may be rushing it a bit.

How To Makeover a Winter Bedroom to Spring

The news lately is all about how awful the winter storms are . . .

Places like Boston with record breaking snowfalls and here this week we are dealing with a winter storm

with mainly ice . . . hate ice, would rather have snow!

While hunkered down in the house with a driveway like an ice skating rink,

I decided to make over my bedroom from Winter to Spring,

as I am officially tired of Winter and do not want to embrace it anymore!!

Vintage Wash Stand

The wash stand was also formerly in the guest room! . . . It is a “well traveled” piece.
