My belle chambre and favorite room in my home is my bedroom. For the spring, I have removed the heavier comforter and replaced it with a lighter traditional bedspread. I maintain a consistent color scheme of black, cream, and gray, so that I do not have to change the entire room each season. In the spring, the cream becomes the dominant color. As for the bedspread, I love the look of a traditional colonial style bed with a lovely bedspread. It is both simple and elegant. For my husband’s preference the decorator pillows are kept to a minimum.
I love mixing and matching pieces of furniture. For example, the side tables are not part of the bedroom suite for my particular bed. You may find it interesting some of the items that I keep at my bedside. For example, the highlighters, markers, and other writing utensils that I use with my kids and for jotting down ideas in my journal. I also have a few books that I like to look at from time to time as well as my favorite magazines.
It is important to keep the items organized, so that I can maintain the peace and calm of the room. Monthly, I change out the magazines and only keep my absolute favorites. Eventually the favorites are replace by newer favorites. Last summer, I discovered Life Beautiful, a Christian magazine. I highly recommend it. The magazine is both beautiful in imagery and content.
I hope that my belle chambre inspires some creative design in yours. Have a marvalous weekend!
