Tell The Truth Thursday

Welcome to “Tell The Truth Thursday” where the question that has been posted in my right side bar gets answered by me and you! Did you prepare your post and are you ready to drop your URL into the Linky so that we all can follow? Grab the thumb above linking it back to this blog posting and let’s get started…

The question this week is :

    How does your ideal bedroom look? What kind of furniture, window treatments, knick knacks, colors, etc. would you use?

I previously wrote a post called White…Plus which boldly states my taste in a nutshell. I love white decorations. There are drawbacks to keeping everything clean and white unless you live alone – which I do not. However, if rules such as “no shoes in the house” or “no eating while sitting on the bed” are put into place, the whites stay white.

I like rooms that are not cluttered with “stuff” and that includes furniture, but bedrooms have to have beds. When living in Texas, we went to the annual Parade of Houses in Plano. On one such occasion, I fell madly in love with the swinging bed. I have searched and searched the internet for something that looked like it, but the closest I’ve come is a round bed and a thin porch swing bed.

With those two beds fresh on your mind, imagine the bed below (without the canopy) swinging and you will have a good vision of my ideal bed.

Of course, I would want all the linens to be white!

For the decorations you would have to conjure of an image of shabby, elegant country. Easy! I know, they don’t really mix, but in my head they go great together.

I love how it exudes a relaxing and clean atmosphere. It is just so peaceful….reminds me of an ocean breeze on a perfect spring day.

Oh! Don’t forget the lighting…yeah, a bit extravagant, but this is just daydreaming.

My ideal bedroom would have deep gem tones like red and purple. I would want Asian themed furniture, like my bed close to the ground and very streamline. The furniture would be black or a deep cherry. I would have the walls painted a fairly neutral color with a bold accent wall, probably where the headboard would be. Lots of art and little Buddhas and such. Other than the colors, I would like everything else to be very Zen. I don't have any pictures, though.

I love the idea of white on white on white on white but with 3 kids, a dog and a husband that is so not gonna happen in my house. I have gone the opposite direction and my bedroom is like a cave.

Hi RedHead Riter,
I posted Bedrooms & Pillow Talk and then realized I had hit publish on my blog without adding my post title. I had to delete the post and create a new one hence the date of the post is now Friday instead of Thursday.
Please delete the post from my blog that goes nowhere when you click on it… I am sorry for the mistake! I love this prompt.
Have a great weekend!
