Bedroom Fantasies....

Now it's not what you're thinking ladies!!!

My bedroom fantasy is to have a bedroom with clean crisp sheets and coordinating quilt... and so many pillows and cushions that have to be removed each night and replaced each morning....it's to have functional and aesthetic bedside tables.....it's to have a lamp in the corner so I can read at night....it's to have a serene place to sleep.....it's to have a place to hide from the kids!!

You know how you always have 'that room'....the one where you hide the piles of clean washing, where you shove boxes under the bed, where you cram a few things in the corner....and then you shut the door when guests are coming over....yeah well that room is our bedroom!

At the end of last year....just before Christmas mind you....hubby decided that the layout of the house would work better if we converted our lounge room into two bedrooms...one for miss 18 and one for miss 16....and if we moved our tv/lounge room into the garage so there was more room for guests at Christmas etc..

So with Christmas day looming every time one of the girls asked where to put something that didn't have a home the answer was inevitably our bedroom....which was okay for the first one or two boxes or tubs....but it soon turned into a disaster!! 

The bedroom door barely opens enough to squeeze on in, inevitably something comes crashing down as I try to scale into bed quietly so as not to wake hubby who has to get up early for work....let's just say it is so not working, or peaceful or pleasant!!

So what is a girl to do when her bedroom is out of control and she dreams of new linen....she creates a pinterest board that's what!!!!  Well a girl can dream can't she!!

Maybe 2016 should be the year of the bedroom makeover....!!!

Pop on over to my pinterest board and drool with me over gorgeous bedroom decor!!


Linking up with Essentially Jess for #IBOT


  1. Awesome - I once knew a girl whose life's ambition was to have a bedroom which consisted entirely of bed - just a massive, mattresses room full of pillows, cushions and blankets. I confess, I loved the idea! It's hard when the house piles up with the kids' stuff - we need to encourage them to start renting storage lockers!!! OK, I'm speaking from the point of view of my mother here, but still...!

  2. I love the pic of your dream bedroom. I'd love to give our bedroom a make over too. I hope 2016 is your "Year of the Bedroom Makevover"!! :-)

  3. I was just thinking the other day I'd love to get a new bedspread and some fancy pillows. One can dream, right?! :) #teamIBOT

  4. I have just made over our bedroom (yay for the January sales) but it's my husband that treats it like a dumping ground, can't win!

  5. Our bedroom has been a work in progress for about 5 years now. Oh how I'd love to turn it into a sanctuary with that pile of cushions you mentioned! One day!!
