I simply remember my favorite things…Friday Favs…I’m lovin’ my “beach cottage” bedroom

My dream house is a cottage by the sea.  When a smoke damage mishap meant we had to do a mini home renovation, I took the opportunity to give the house more of a cottage feel. That was my inspiration. Yesterday I showed you a peek at my living room.  Today, here’s a peek at the progress we are making on our bedroom.  There are still details to finish, curtains to hang, etc.  but so far…I’m lovin’ it!

DSC_0009We chose a soft beachy gray Miller paint for the walls throughout the main living area of the house as well as our bedroom.

In the bedroom we put beadboard 4 feet up the wall and added simple trim on top.

The bedding is by Ralph Lauren.  I  found it for a great price at Home Goods.

I painted, then sanded to “distress”, the frame of a mirror I already had.

We painted our pine armoire white as well.

The shell shadow boxes are from Ross.



Happy Friday Everyone!
