Spring Bedroom

This picture was in the most recent Pottery Barn catalog. Its nice to see something other than the dark wood that's dominated and I especially liked this picture because I have a similar sleigh bed though mine doesn't have those great turned feet. *jealous*

I also noted the mercury glass lamp peeking out of the pillows. I thought of the lamps I have in my own bedroom and while I love them they kind of blend in a little too much ...

Then, I thought of the lamps in my basement that I painted silver last year and decided to switch them. After changing out my heavier winter bedding for my lighter coverlet, here's the new result ...

The lamps somehow bring out the silvery shine of the Venetian glass mirror above the bed.

Its funny how sometimes a small (and free!) change can make such a difference. The white lamps also look better in our basement family room where they reflect the white of the fireplace.


  1. your bedroom fit for a catalog too! lovely...

  2. So glad I found your blog! Love the pictures
    of your house and how you have changed it.
    The bedroom is simply beautiful. Take a look
    at my blog if you get the chance.


  3. The silver lamps are just wonderful. Such a small change, but it really does make a big difference. Your room is just lovely. So fresh and crisp. Hugs, Marty

  4. I've been admiring those lamps in the PB catalog as well. Your coverlet on your bed is beautiful!

  5. Your bedroom looks beautiful, but changing the lamps does make a lovely subtle change for the season.

  6. You have a lovely bedroom and I think the silver leaf lamps work very well. I immediately thought they added to the mirror, and then read that you thought so to. Very pretty!

  7. Oh I love how those silver lamps look! I can see how they'd make a difference in the room.

  8. I love it, Melanie- it has such a fresh, modern look! I love how you took the inspiration and made it your own!

  9. They all complement each other well. Love the mix of textures.

  10. Ahhh I could dive into that bed right now! Love it. So fresh :)
