beach cottage bedroom


Remember my bedroom looking like this? well, the dark colors were getting to me….I needed a summery, beachy look…I needed a breath of fresh air in there.  I was starting to feel claustrophobic! beddo

I love WHITE…it makes everything look clean…kinda how you notice how green grass is after a good rain! :) The bedding is from Ikea….I was inspired to use books as usual for my decor…and guess what? you turn them around and you get another layer of white-ish. :)  And who said you can’t hang plates in your bedroom…(hubby thinks he needs a fridge in there now).



I found this frame at a yard sale and wrote these words in each frame for instant beach charm! :)



you’re wondering what in the world those white things are hanging from the ceiling???…those are sheer curtains that I need to buy in longer lengths…so it will touch the floor.  I think it makes the room feel so……beachy! yes…no?

Hi Aubrey! I just found your blog today, and I'm pretty sure we are style soulmates :-)! I loved your bedroom re-do, and all the little touches you added to your vow renewal ceremony - just divine! (We just renewed our vows this Spring too) Anyway, nice to meet you. I look forward to following your journey to Germany!
