My Downstairs Bedroom

As you know, a year and a half ago I switched bedrooms with my sister Mandy. I was a bit sad to leave my upstairs nest, but for the six months previous I had been camping out in Mandy's room anyway (Because of allergies and the heat didn't doesn't really work upstairs, I wasn't sleeping very well upstairs).

It didn't take us very long to shift furniture, paint walls and swap light fixtures. But I didn't really give much thought to furniture arrangement and making the room mine. Finally this summer I knew how I wanted to re-arrange things. And I love it! 

 Kerri is in her usual spot!

She loves propping her paws up on the footboard!

 This bedroom doesn't have quite as much cozy character as upstairs, but I love That there is at lest one piece of slanty ceiling! That is actually the bottom of the stairs going up.

I wasn't sure at first if I would bring my coat rack down, but I was really sad not too! I decided I would just find a place. And am so glad I did! It is so handy for my knitting bags, purses and sweaters.

I love how much light I get all throughout the day. Much sunnier then upstairs!

And a panoramic view!


  1. It looks so cosy, you have a beautiful room.

    1. Oh thank you! It doesn't seem as cosy as upstairs, but with the furniture arranged this way it is much cosier.

  2. I just found your blog and read only the last few posts. Your home is amazing. I love the bathroom and love the fact you haven't changed anything (as they would do on HGTV.) The tile is awesome! Your bedroom is so cozy, but what catches my eye is the doll on the dresser. I'd love to see it close up. I'm thinking it's like one of my first little dolls to sew for in the 1940's. I still have her and the cardboard trunk she came in, from Santa. I'm 80 years old now, and she sleeps with her dolly friend in a doll bed on a blanket chest in my bedroom.

    1. Thank you for stopping by! I will have to do a post on my little doll. She is all composition with stationary legs and arms that move. I too, sewed her a dress as she came without any!
