The blue room

I thought I would show you a couple more pictures of my blue bedroom. I know I've shown a few here and here. But I don't think I ever showed any when it was completely done. Maybe completely done is not really the right term - why don't we say 'done for now'. :)

This is the wall where my conservatory sits by the master chest. Too bad they wouldn't let me keep it on the front porch, but it looks pretty spiffy here in the bedroom. (I should have plugged in the lights - I left the white lights in after Christmas)

and this is the bay window after I finally got curtains up! Who knew bay windows were such a pain to dress? I still have one more bay window (in the breakfast room) but it won't be getting the 'one rod' treatment - I will figure out some way to do each window separate! It is really hard to get a good picture of a window. I tried with the blinds open and closed - this was the better of the bunch. (the conservatory is just out of the picture on the right)

I got a new quilt for the bed too. I wasn't really sure what I wanted - I was trying to keep it from being completely feminine and I saw a few things I thought might work, but even at sale prices they were a little too much for my budget. Then, one day I was walking through Target and saw this blue quilt. I had my paint sample in my purse and it was a perfect match! (it is a closer match than it appears in the pic) It looks more like I bought the quilt first then matched the paint (which I hear is the preferred way to do things, I'm always backwards) than the way I did which was to paint the room, then look for bed coverings!

We had a lot of rain yesterday and still have clouds today. I'm not sure if it is supposed to rain any more or not. Got a lot going on this week - in fact it looks like the next 5-6 weeks are going to be pretty busy. Hope I can keep up!

I love the vignette over the bed, soft and lovely, not too feminine. I love the look of bay windows, but HATE trying to outfit them with window treatments (that's why mine are naked except for blinds almost 3 yrs after our move).
