Romantic Bedroom Inspiration....
There's a reason I named my blog Rose Garden Romantic and my Flickr account Seaside Rose Garden. I love the sea. I adore roses because they remind me of my sweet mama's garden. And I'm a hopeless romantic. So it's no surprise that when it comes to decorating, those are my favorite themes! We moved into the house we are renting 4 years ago and I still have not decorated my master bedroom! Since we have always moved often, I don't do a lot to the houses I live in. But since we've lived here 4 years now and there's no sign of that changing anytime soon, I've decided to stop staring at those ugly dark green walls in my bedroom everyday when I wake up. I want to wake up to something beautiful and cheerful. So this weekend we are off to buy some paint! I have made a fun little collage for inspiration for my room's new look.
It's going to be a use what you have makeover for the most part. I already have a cottage style white bed, a vintage white dresser and a large mirror just like the one you see in the above photo. But the one in the photo is from Pottery Barn and costs hundreds of dollars. I got mine for $15 dollars from the Goodwill and painted it white! I even have a pretty barkcloth floral print pillow similar to the one on the bed. All I really need (o.k. want!) is a pretty chandelier, pretty bedding and some paint. I am terrible at making decisions and choosing paint colors is so hard. Wish me luck!

Hi Michelle, I know your bedroom will look just beautiful when it is all finished :) You already have a good start on some of the things, and in time, you will find the others that you wish/want :) Just pick a paint color that is soft in tone and will work best for you.

Have a great weekend, warmest, Brenda

I hope your inspiration pieces. I hope you post after pics! You can't beat a soft color in my opinion. However I am sure whatever you pick it will be gorgeous.

Hi Sister! Wish I was there to help you paint - such fun! I've lately been wanting to paint a room in a misty sea blue. Mmmm - how peaceful and therapeutic that would be! Good luck - I can't wait to see how beautiful it turns out. :)

Hi sweet Michelle,
I love your pretty collage and I know you will do a wonderful job choosing your paint colors! I can hardly wait to see your makeover. I know you will be able to find all that you want. How wonderful you found a mirror at Goodwill for $15 and painted it white. My husband found one there too, for $12, I think, and he painted it white. It looks so much better! Love, Paula
