There's not a lot of natural light in the master bedroom, which is just fine for sleeping, but taking photos in here is a bit tricky.
Artificial light improves things somewhat, but also casts shadows that I don't notice while I'm propped up reading in bed!
I love Maria's Dreamy Whites serene French farmhouse style, for instance, but Joy's Savvy City Farmer rooms that appear in Romantic Prairie Style just give me a thrill!
I always incorporate the darker tones and touches of gold that are found in Joy's home, and have a higher number of "objays" that I use in vignettes. I'll probably never have just a lamp and a drink of water by the bed! Here's a look at my bedside table all straightened up and dusted off.
The tapestry is a reproduction souvenir I brought back from Venice.
The glass lamp, drinking glass, and perfume bottle are vintage.
I found this small original watercolor portrait at a fleamarket. The seller may have thought it was a print. It reminds me of a Dutch Master, and has a signature that turned up nothing in my cursory research. Isn't she fine?
Do you have any bedside treasure? Do tell!
I hope you're off to the start of a great new week!
Ciao! for now!
