corners in the bedroom

I thought today I would post a few photos of the corners in our bedroom.

It may look a little dreamy in some of these photos...
but let me tell you, it's not dreamy very often :)))

It is my little dumping ground for all things homeless.

The only reason it is cleaned up now is that my sister was just here
visiting and the same boxes of paperwork that were stacked in here last month when she visited
were finally sorted through and put away before she arrived on Friday.
I couldn't have her thinking I'm a pig, now could I???

For the life of me, 
I can't figure out why this room has be the one I clutter up.

I don't have a home office and if I don't keep important tasks in front of me where I can 
 fall over see them daily,
I find fun things to do instead of addressing them.

Okay---enough about my 'slob-ishness'

and back to 'dreamy'

as always---there has to be dried peonies

 and roses

a favorite necklace

on a favorite lampshade

of course-
more peonies


the little shawl is one my daughter got me at an estate sale
love it!

 as for the stack of boxes...
they are finally filed away and neatly stored.
Now------was that so hard???

Photography is perfect, you show what you want to show us, even when the mess is just around. Your sister should come often, then the problem is over ;-).

The bedroom is beautiful and of course you have decorated the room with flowers!!

Sending hugs, Ingrid

Oh how i love to see corners of your home. It is dreamy beautiful. Looks like photos from a Rachel Ashwell book!

June it looks very dreamy to me all those lovely pastel colours and lace are just the thing you need to have a good nights sleep.
Love Jill xx

Custom Comforts said...

Lovely and dreamy. I totally understand about the pile ups. For me it comes from having such a small house or could it be that I just have too much stuff. Trying so hard to pare down and keep only what I really need and love.
Your bedroom looks like a haven and wonderful place for a nice afternoon nap. Just beautiful - as expected.

La Vie Quotidienne said...

It is always such a joy to read one of your posts...they never disappoint, this one is particularly lovely. I didn't know that peonies could be dried, probably because I can't grow them ~ these are so pretty.

deb said...

looks like the perfect sanctuary ♥
your home is absolutely gorgeous!

Kate said...


Dreamy and gorgeous it all is. Thank you for always sharing such beauty and inspiration. I never tire of looking at your wonder. Much love to you this Fall season. xoxo Kate

Vicky said...

What a gorgeous bedroom, love it! Your home is so beautiful..!!

Victoria said...

You have beautiful, dreamy, romantic corners there June! I bet your stacks of paper even manage to look lovely somehow:)

Trisha said...

Hi June!

I just bet that the stack of boxes is dreamy too! Everything I have ever seen from you is! Hope you are having a wonderful fall!


Katherine said...

Nothing moves me to straighten up the catch-all corner like company coming does. I laugh every time at the simplicity of how quickly it gets sorted.

The bedroom looks very dreamy - and you likely sleep better without reminder notes beside you.


Barbara said...

I'd think I was in a dream if I was sleeping in that room, June! Lovely and feminine.
I am, at last, now at the age where I don't collect anymore. Too much crowding already, no need for more. Cant bear to part with what I have!
Hope you and yours have been well, and that your visit with your sister was wonderful. I love it when mine comes.
Hugs and sorry I don't visit more often.

Thank goodness for the art of the closely cropped shot! Haha! In life, it's what you choose to focus on that counts! Your corners are just so beautiful. I love the lace on the lampshade. So pretty!

Julie Marie said...

Dreamy really is the perfect word to describe it all sweet friend... I love all of your soft, romantic touches... and of course, must have roses and peonies... your shawl from your daughter is just gorgeous... do you wear it sometimes... or just display it?... I would wear it and daydream all day long in it... much love, xoxo Julie Marie

Heaven's Walk said...

It wouldn't matter if you still had those boxes stacked up in that room, June. Your guest room is just beautiful! I love the soft, ethereal look you've given it. I have those same floral pillows (and duvet). :) I didn't know that peonies would dry so beautifully! I'm going to remember that next spring. ♥

Dreamy is right! What a beautiful, romantic bedroom.

Tricia said...

It looks absolutely beautiful in there, June! It's hard for me to believe that you could have anything slobbish around you. I LOVE that bed and all your pretty dried flowers. xo

suziqu's thread works said...

Isn't it amazing that we need a visit and an overnight or more stay by friends or family to get us into those corners to tidy up?
I doubt very much your sister would even notice a stack of papers in there when everything just takes your eye - so much beauty and romance in there highlighted by those magnificent peonies and other soft roses. Your lacey shawl draped there just add to the romantic atmosphere.
Sending you much love dear friend,

debi said...

June, seeing photos of your dreamy home always makes me want to redecorate mine. *sigh* As always, beautiful.

joanne said...

is it possible for something to be too beautiful? You are close to the line on this one...just lovely, lovely. Oh, June how I treasure your glimpses into life in your part of the world. How I envy your decorating eye!

Junebug said...

I get so excited when I see you have a new post. I love all the photos but still can't figure out your peonies. I've tried for the last two years to dry mine, but they sure don't look lovely like yours. Mine even stink!!! You have the touch little June. Here's hoping you have a lovely dreamy week. Big June!

Geli said...

Dear June!
Your bedroom is like you - very beautiful and dreamy!
Thanks for the wonderful photos!
I wish you a happy weekend!
With love,

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

You are an artist. If you think that corner is not always dreamy, but can convey to us that it is, you are an artist. Oh dear, how blessed we are to be able to practice ART! June, you and Jade are fabulous in the WHITE department! LOVE! Anita

Peacefully beautiful, very inspiring.


time worn interiors said...

Sigh! June you always take lovely photos. I always enjoy seeing photos of your home!

Deborah said...

June I love your "corners"
They are so soft,and so very beautiful.
I know what you nght-table is piled high (usually) with stuff. When things start to topple onto the floor, I know its time to clear it off again ;)
I love your dried peonies!
The roses are also perfect in here, and that shawl...what a gift!
Love ever inch in there, and my bedroom is my favourite room in our home ;)
A haven~
Love, smiles and warmest of hugs!

All my heart,
Deborah xoxoox

Lady Pamela said...

Thank you for inviting us into such a private space, June. I have never seen a round table like yours. Neat. I also like your lampshade. I have one that is too short for my lamp and the brass shows underneath. I will look for some crocheted lace to cover it. How did you attach it?

Fete et Fleur said...

Hi, June,

It is so ethereal and lovely! I have the same issue with my bedroom. I'm trying to stop the flow of stuff into it all the time. An office space would be wonderful.

The light in your house is so stunning. It makes ypur photos dreamy. I hope you post photos of your holiday home for inspiration.


Sandi said...

I can always count on your blog posts to cheer me up no matter what is going on. I love this room. Such beautiful touches. You inspire me so much!

Olive said...

Dear June, I can imagine this room beautiful even when cluttered a bit. You have that touch of elegance no matter what you do. Now me, I can clutter sans elegance. blessings, olive

Anne said...

June it looks amazing! Hard to believe it is ever a mess.But my home is never perfect either.Although you can't tell from photos we do live in our home and it is never perfect.

Diane said...

It looks absolutely dreamy to me. Beautiful shots, June.

Ivy and Elephants said...

Oh June, you could never be messy! You create beauty in every single corner. Love your romantic and dreamy style.

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

Good morning dear and lovely June!

Seeing your beautiful smile on my comments page is a blessing, ALWAYS! I cannot wait to see what you will share for the holidays. Your view of the world and style make my heart sing.

Enjoy your day my sweet friend! Anita

Rosemary said...

Vintage Home said...

oh my what a sweet spot! I love how we have messy areas that are so wonderfully beautiful! I am the queen of "forgetting" about a mess to do something fun!
Good lesson over here today! ...Our bedrooms are so important and yours is no exception! Thank you for sharing this sweet private spot!

Ann Marie said...

Good for you organizing!!

Your not alone. Most people use their bedroom as a dumping ground.. because it's one that people don't need to be gathering in! :)

Your photos look so crisp, clean, and beautiful. ~ As always.

LOVE-LOVE your lamp shade! ♥

Debbie said...

Where do I begin??? Gorgeous sums it up nicely. Everything in the room has your special touch, June. Whenever I come here, I'm inspired.
I see you got the RA pillow sham! I love mine.
Enjoy the weekend.

Susan EvelynAndRose said...

Clutter or not, this corner is heavenly! I adore your soft colors and dried flowers, June. What a restful place here. And I'm the same way about leaving 'to do' papers smack in my way to remind me to do them. My bureau is covered with such stacks. does feel good to tidy up, doesn't it? And your corner cleans up wondrously!

One Shabby Old House said...

All you have to do is throw a peony on a pile and it's pretty June!. You just showed us all that every corner in your home is simply beautiful!

My Little Home and Garden said...

Dreamy, indeed. One would never know it had been a cluttered spot without your "confession". It looks like a place to linger and think pleasant thoughts.


Cindy said...

Well, i guess that's one good thing about having someone over, it makes you clean up! Your room is so so pretty, but that's no surprise... and i love your necklace too. It's perfect hanging on your lace covered lampshade, what a great find or gift that was...


Madelief said...

Oh wow June,

Your bedroom looks dreamy indeed! I wish mine looked like that! Hope you had a lovely time with your sister.

Wishing you a happy week!

Sandi~A Cottage Muse said...

So beautiful June...and speaking of dreamy...I love your new header!

Carolyn said...

Hi June,
Your photos always look so dreamy and romantic ....can't believe you have a slobish bone in your body!

You probably have your garden all tucked in for the winter. I still have some bulbs to plant.

Take care,

Jody and Stan said...

Love your dreamy romantic room, June. I adore the soft colors and flowers everywhere. I have to dry some peonies next year. Yours are so beautiful. I'm loving your favorite necklace displayed on your vintage lampshade, and oh yes, your little shawl your daughter got you is precious. Going out now to buy some pink roses...

Mimi Sue said...

I love to have people come to visit because I get so much done getting ready for them! Your bedroom is beautiful and so very restful. Mimi

toves sammensurium said...

Dear June....this is the furthest from clutter I´ve seen in a long time for sure.It´s all wonderful,so cozy and romantic and I am pretending I didn´t read anything about clutter and I´ll believe it looks like this forever!!! And let me tell you this,if you even had an office that´s the place for clutter.I know,an expert to be called.But I keep on believing that tomorrow I´ll get control of that horrible room :))
Once again your pictures are so beautiful I am totally speechless!!!!!
Pure beauty!
Tovehugs :)))

Lady of the Woods said...
