I am a morning person. I like to get up early and workout, turn on the Today show (I tried GMA for a week, it just didn’t work out), and browse through my favorite blogs with coffee all before 8 a.m.! Apparently that is the old me. Currently I am a night owl, up until 3 a.m. researching items for the blog and reading often mindless articles. Believe it or not, you can’t be a morning person or a night owl if you don’t somehow manage to get decent sleep. Well you technically could, but I have seen how those people prematurely age and no amount of La Mer can save them! No thank you!
I am going to try to re-establish my early to rise routine again, which means I need to start going early to bed. Those who receive The Potted Boxwood fresh in your email each morning will likely still be in bed while reading this post. It is to you I apologize, for these images will make you want to do anything but get out of bed. Below you will find some beautiful bedrooms that create a sanctuary of sweet dreams and sleeping in.
P.S. Every bed has white sheets, yet none of these rooms look plain. Just a thought for all my non-must-use-white-linens-believers.
Early to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise.
One of my favorite bedrooms by Phoebe Howard. I love it’s soft simplicity and personality. I didn’t realize until I put together this post how much I adore canopy beds, but only when they are done right. Photo source: Phoebe Howard
A gorgeous white bed with red trim to accent the heavily wallpapered backdrop. I especially enjoy how the rug breaks it up. Photo source: Savvy Home Blog
I love how Charlotte Moss makes this bed the ultimate centerpiece!
Sister Parish designed this soft and timeless bedroom. What a serene and heavenly space.
I can’t get enough of this Southampton home designed by Kirsten Fitzgibbons and Kelli Ford. The purple monogramed pillows add a wonderful pop of color to the white room. More to come on this colorful home later in the week! Photo source: Veranda
Moving on to more monograms. I love the green, white, and blue combination in this bedroom. Not to mention the butterfly detail on the walls and pillow. Lovely!! Designer: Ruthie Sommers. Photo source: Town & Country on Chinoiserie Chic
If I had to start a fan page, it would probably be for Miles Redd (and Mark D. Sikes)- Please don’t worry I am not that creepy! His work is just so inspiring, fresh, and total perfection. This gorgeous room is no exception! His execution of color, patters, and texture is flawless. Just look at the floors and the wallpaper, and look how well it works together! Genius!
Out of all the pictures today, I want to be in this room. It is just so pretty, inviting, and elegant. Designer: Unknown (any thoughts?). Photo source: Pinterest
I am honestly stunned at myself for how many beds I have chosen with curtained canopies. I really do love the use of fabric and in a bedroom. It is the perfect way to frame a bed. Designed by Albert Hadley and Harry Heissmann. Photo source: House Beautiful
This is simply fabulous. I would like a leopard ottoman at the end of my bed!
I really do like this room, I just have mixed emotions towards a mirrored wall in a bedroom. It undoubtedly opens up the room, but something about it feels…unsettling? provocative? Photo source: The Enchanted Home
An excellent bedroom featured in Elle Decor. I love the upholstered top of the canopy bed. Why not stare up at a pretty fabric?
Who doesn’t want to sleep under a canopy bed of white voile? Especially in the summer, this bedroom by Jim Howard is perfect for an afternoon nap in the breeze. Hopefully you can squeeze one in today! Photo source: House Beautiful
