Your Sanctuary at Home

This is my bed. My bedroom is my resting place. My get away. My home within my home. I like it calm, neat, peaceful. I love low lighting and the scent of Archipelago's Madagascar filling the air. And yes, I am having a love affair with my sheets (thats a whole different post, ha ha).

So, as you might have guessed, this room was done on inspiration (mentioned above) and a budget-- my husband's favorite word since I quit my job to stay home with K. I'll detail the finds for you in the FYI below.

I'm pretty excited about this find from a few weeks ago. I mention Serena and Lily a lot. That is because I love everything they make. I mean, I'm obsessed. However, my bank account doesn't love S&L. I noticed that TJMaxx and Marshalls have had some of their bedding lately. Look for it when you are there. A set of their king size sheets retail price will set you back about $250. I found this price at TJMaxx ($69.99) much easier on my budget.

When I put the new linens on my bed, I changed out the rug beside it to this one below. Its an old fave from Pottery Barn Outlet that I purchased for $49.99. I like how it brings out the persimmon in the new linens.

-My headboard is from Ballard Designs (natural linen), $559
-I REALLY wanted the French Wing Upholstered Bed from Restoration Hardware, but at $2495, it wasn't in my budget
-My side tables, lucite lamps and chartreuse velvet chair (Mitchell Gold for SH) are from Storehouse (which is no longer, sniff sniff)
-The bench that I am using as a footboard is from HomeGoods in Atlanta $149.99, I had a seamstress make the down linen cushion for me and the large roll pillow was $20 from TJMaxx that I had recovered in a linen tablecloth (Dwell) that I got on sale.
-My white bee bedding is from Restoration Hardware Outlet in an outlet mall outside of Atlanta.
-The round mirror above my bed is from for $99
-The ikat throw pillows on my bed are from ($34 each, Debos shop)
-The pillow on my chartreuse green velvet chair is from a tiny shop from our travels to Chile.
-The water scene print above the chair is from HomeGoods, $49.99
-The drapery panels are from Potterybarn, Peyton Grommet Drape, 108", $109 per panel--I have these in every room of my house on the main floor.
