Ah, January. Everything is fresh and new and…cold. Or wet, depending.
Here in Florida? It’s wet. It’s rained for days on end now, but I happen to like the rain! If I don’t have to go out in it. If I can stay inside and let the rain fall outside, I’m pretty happy!
And when it comes to the inside of my home, I’ve always wanted it to be cozy. I’ve wanted people who visit to immediately feel at home and safe and calm in our home – and I hope I’ve accomplished that so far! But here recently, I’ve been working on making one particular room in our home “cozy”. That room is the Master Bedroom.
We’ve had the same decor in our Master Bedroom since we got married. Everything has been shades of teals and browns. One day I’ll give y’all a tour of that decor. And teal and brown is fine – but I was ready for a change!
So I started thinking…how about shades of white and blue, with some yellow thrown in? Bright, cheerful, clean, cozy and not TOO girly (for the sake of my hubby, right?)
Well, as far as I’m concerned, the first step in making sure a Master Bedroom is cozy is taking care of the bed itself. I’m a pretty frugal chick, but I’ll be honest: one thing I don’t mind splurging on is bed linens. Why? Because you can’t put a value on a good night’s sleep! And in looking for some fantastic bedding, I knew I had to check out Parachute Home.
Look what I found!
Can’t you see yourself sinking into the middle of those?! Along with a few of these…
So crisp and clean. Are you sleepy yet?
Now, at our house, we do not exist at the same body temperature. Yours truly is normally cold, while my husband is normally hot, so I found something else that would remedy that issue perfectly!
Do you not LOVE the cream one on the far left?! Perfect to add to the bed (just on my side), or for a quick wrap-around on the couch!
And for that extra touch of cozy…
Just the ticket! There’s nothing quite like a candle to make you feel all warm inside…especially one like this…since we have no fireplace!
So now that I’ve figured out what the plan is for the Master Bedroom, I’ll move on to the guest bedroom, so our guests can feel just as cozy as we do!
