I’m so excited to show you the updates to our bedroom. I’ve been adding color and pattern slowly to the room. I still love my fairly neutral palette, but the blues and pinks go so well with what I had already in the room. I started with a neutral bedspread and neutral curtains, so the new patterns work perfectly in here. I love the way the sunlight fills our bedroom! There are 4 large windows, so it’s light and bright.
This post is sponsored by Soft Surroundings. They sent me this beautiful leopard print coverlet. It’s so soft, and cozy. You can see it’s a bit oversized for our bed, but that’s because I got the king size for our queen bed. That way there’s no fighting for cover in the middle of the night. You can find it HERE.
There are leopard pillow shams that go with the coverlet. You can find them HERE. I loved the leopard print shams, but wanted something different for my pillow shams. Instead of going with the matching shams, I decided to go with the Califa euros instead, also from Soft Surroundings. They are in the same color family, but clearly are a different pattern. I love the way the new patterns really gave my room a fresh post- Christmas look, perfect for the start of a new year. They even worked with my blue linen bolster that I already had and my blue rug, CLICK HERE.
On the bed tray, I’ve displayed my Wedgwood vintage teapot. This pattern is Queensware lavender grapevine. I found it at a thrift store and couldn’t resist! Vintage English teapots are a weakness of mine. Just look how beautiful the blue details are. This was all they had (no cups) but I didn’t care.
Here is the close-up of the fabric on the Califa euro pillow. It reminds me of some old curtains my mom had in her bedroom that were probably from the 50’s. The pattern really spoke to me. I was a bit obsessed with it. I had to have it.
The pillow below is another pattern in the room, but since each pattern has a limited color palette, they all work together.
Next to the bed, I had a display of some other vintage dishes I couldn’t resist. This set did not come with a teapot, or perhaps the teapot didn’t survive years of use. Still the color on the cups really spoke to me, so again, I couldn’t pass them up. I’ve pared down my dishes a lot this year, but this set made the cut. I am sure you can see why!
Here’s another view of the room. The painting was on another wall, and I removed a candle sconce that was here. I find that these small changes keep me from being bored with the room. The pink pillows are made from antique Turkish rugs. These are all small changes, but they add up. When I started the room was completely neutral with no rugs or curtains.
I thought these vintage pillows were so unique and a fabulous addition to the room.
Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate your time so much. I want to show you the updated guest quarters and some other changes to our house, so keep an eye out for those, coming soon.
Happy New Year, Anita! Isn’t it so gratifying to refresh our décor after Christmas? Your bedroom is lovely! Unfortunately, I checked the blue colorway in that Soft Surroundings coverlet, but it is sold out ;-( Such a chic update to your bedding. Love your style!
Love the subtle blue hues for a quick ‘refresh’ to your Master Bedroom!
Those prints are awesome!

This is beautiful Anita! And I love how it has been a gradual transition. The teapot is exquisite – it is so nice to see these items on display!

I love the softness you’ve added with the curtain, rugs and pillows. It’s definitely a year-round room and quite lovely.
Very refreshing… beautiful room! I’m not much of a fan of “farmhouse” and it’s all I seem to find, yet, I do like the soft subtle colors and the clean, not minimalist, lines! You have quite the eye for texture, color and balance in a room… I’m enjoying following you and look forward to your posts!

So pretty! I miss that floral plaque you used to have above your bed! I just ordered a new blanket – always a King size for our Queen bed, same with the comforter. Cuts down on the amount of pulling blankies back and forth,haha!

The bit of blue adds so much to your master bedroom. Lavender touches are always lovely and timeless. Looking forward to following along with you again this year. I learn so much from my blog buddies!
What color paint did you use on your bedroom walls? Love the neutral color! Thank you in Advance ?
It’s sherwin williams agreeable gray Nancy.
Hi, I’m new to your site…love your decor. I’m going through the different articles and love seeing all the beautiful decorating. I love the large chair with ottoman that I’ve seen in several of your articles. Please tell me where I can find one. Thanks in advance.
where I live, the winter is very cold. Is there no duvet on your bed or have you put it in the basket? If not, where do you guard? Because my bed is never so nice straight. Bes regards. Éva
Eva, we never use the duvet on the bed because it is too hot here! But I do like to keep one on the bed when it is made for looks.
Beautiful room! Where is your bed from?
It’s from Charles P. Rogers, from about 20 years ago. I’m not sure they still sell it.
I love your window treatments. I’ve recently painted my whole house Alabaster by SW. I’m in the market for bamboo shades. I noticed the color you used with your gray walls, because you said it had a hint of gray in them. What color would you suggest for my bedroom? I have Kirsch bamboo shades in my living room. But the windows are very high because the ceiling is 20Ft. Do the shades need to all match? I also have them on the windows in the stair well and the landing upstairs.
Hi Anita – I missed the boat on all of the Soft Surroundings furniture/decor which they still feature as props in their clothing catalogs. I love the Dominique buffet lamp – any idea where to still get? I also love the neutral bedspread in your bedroom – can you recommend where to find? Thank you!
Oh no Joanne! I sadly don’t have a source for the lamp. As for the bedspread, I found some similar ones on Amazon, but these are not linen. Here’s the affiliate link Cedar Hill Farmhouse on Amazon.
I also found a high end version at Pine Cone Hill HERE
