Modern Country bedroom Inspiration....

Having had four littlies around for the last ten or so years, I was determined for our bedroom to be an absolute haven. Not from the littlies themselves so much, but from the stresses and strains of being in demand all day every day.

I wanted to make it a sanctuary for Mr Modern Country and I to sink into at the end of each day.  A place where we could brush the cares of the world aside and be together...

just me and him....

My perfect bed is......

 laden with pillows.....



a place to read.....



gorgeous even when unmade.....



a little bit glamourous....



good for a family midnight feast.....



surrounded by restful colours....



soft and snuggly.....



soporifically soothing....



my favourite place to be.....

Your bedroom is so beautiful! It was one of the first things that caught my eye when I first came upon your blog! I think bedrooms should be exactly what you described them to be!! You did an amazing job!!

I love the image of the family all cozy in bed together. When my kids were little they would often climb into bed with my husband and me. It made for some sweet cuddle time! thanks for sharing!!

Dear Sarah, Yes, I can well imagine your sinking into that wonderfully comfortable and exceptionally pretty bed at the end of a tiring day. Bliss!!

As for me, the antique brass bedstead is very Victorian but cannot, I regret to say, be relied upon for a good night's sleep. Time for a change?

My littlies are still very little but I dream of the day me and Mr MummysLife can have our own perfect sanctuary, and I think it will be much like the pictures you have.

Ah, a nice bedroom is essential. Ours is blue but we do have a few things left to sort out when it comes to decorating. We've only been in the house for three years! Lately we have work more on the childrens bedrooms since they are not little babies anymore.

Thanks for stopping by my blog.

Oh you have such a Beeeautiful room! It really looks like a total haven, away from all the bedlam and such soothing colours too!

Enjoyed all the other pictures too, great inspiration as thinking of re-decorating our bedroom soon!

Thanks for popping by my blog, Kitchen is brilliant isn't it?! I have tried a few recipes now, and they've all gone down really well here, especially the choc orange loaf cake, mmmm!!
Sending love, have a great weekend,

I know this is from a while back, but I love these photos! We still need to remodel our master bedroom and can't decide how. Thanks for the inspiration! I think we have VERY similar tastes in all home decor :) just love your blog!
