Bedroom Rose Bliss

I often cut my roses and bring them indoors to enjoy, the fact is the more you cut them, the more flowers you'll get on the bush, so why not? One of the places I love them in is our bedroom. Their fragrance is especially strong inside a room and permeates the whole space. They are natural air-fresheners.

Hope you enjoyed the little tour of our bedroom, I've painted the furniture white, changed drawers' knobs to glass ones(on bedside cabinets), put appliques/embellishments on wherever possible. The only thing I haven't painted is the bed. I like it the way it is, it's brass coloured, I didn't think it'd look good white , so I left it alone. In fact the white bedding was the starting point to all the other furniture painted white. Many people think white looks too sterile and cold, but I have lived with white beddings for many years and have no desire to change the colour scheme because it's been such a soothing and restful colour which I don't get tired of so quickly. I simply love it!

Here the roses were St.Cecilia (the lighter pinks), Louise Odier, Radio Times and Pink Simplicity (all medium pinks), they were so deliciously scented I nearly ate them.

I love what you've done with your bedroom, the white is so peaceful. What beautiful windows, the lace is so pretty. You're so blessed to have the roses - they add so much to the room! Blessings, Victoria Lynn

Wow! Your bedroom is simply gorgeous! I too have been madly painting furniture white much to the disgust of a lot of my visitors...they just don't get it...poor them. Your beautiful roses go so nicely with the white. How could you go wrong using roses to add a touch of colour? I now have a lovely white cupboard in my bedroom that we have just finished doing up. White seems to lift my spirit. Your bed does look right leaving it the brassy look....yum!
Have fun playing house as you always do. Happiness to you, Angela.

I love your bedroom! It should be in a magazine!

I use a lot of white in my home. Its very small, so the light colors and clean lines work well.

And white is such a nice backdrop for other colors. So easy to change looks with the seasons.
