My Pretty Bedroom

I had so much fun joining in Show Us Your Life Friday at Kelly's Korner last week that I have decided to join in again with a tour of our master bedroom.  

Green, pink and cream has always been my favourite bedroom colour combination, and this room was already painted in these colours when we moved in last March. (The previous owners had fabulous taste!)

The master bedroom is in the original part of our 1915 house and has a 12 foot high ceiling and lovely old-fashioned windows that open outwards.  Are these called dormer windows?  Although you can't see in these pictures because of the bright light, the top row of panes is tinted pink.  

The green coverlet came from Laura Ashley a few years ago and the quilt cover, which is difficult to see, is green and pink on a white background - light and fresh and pretty for our Australian spring.

I don't like a lot of clutter in a bedroom, nor do I like bedroom televisions or other technology.  There is so much stress in our lives these days that I think it is worth making bedrooms as peaceful and restful as possible.  Anything I bring into my bedroom has to earn its place.

Our dressing table and bedside tables belonged to my husband's grandparents who married in the 1930s and I think they date from that period.  The cover on the dressing table is a scarf that belonged to my grandmother.  The silver picture frame was given to us by some Melbourne friends at our farewell party and I still haven't put a picture of us in it yet!

You can find some bedroom pictures that I took just after we moved in here
Thank you for visiting.  I hope you have a lovely weekend.
