I'm loving the new mirror over the bed in place of the cheap starburst mirror.
I have had only the plantation shutters on the windows for fifteen years and deiced to add an ivory panel to each window for some softness. I love how the room feels cozier just by adding drapes.
I scored big time on these lamps from Restoration Hardware. Actually I scored even better on the shades.

This is his favorite picture of us taken about twenty years ago.
The other big change is the carpet. Goodbye shag. The shag had been chewed at the door to our bedroom by miss Bailey when she was a puppy and it had gotten loose at the bathroom door. I am so glad it's gone.
New white lamps were by the bed until I found the new ones from RH so I put these on the dresser. The lamps came with white shades, but they were just too white for the room so I bought new shades on clearance from Pottery Barn.

After repairing a gazillion nail holes in the walls I have only put one nail on this wall for the mirror so far.
Old magazine rack holds some design books.
The cow picture that hung here before has been replaced with this watercolor. Going for a more grown up look. :)
Brought back out my toile pillows from storage.
I added this little needlepoint pillow from the sitting room to this chair.
I had priced wood flooring like we have through out this level, but it would have been twice the price of the carpet and I really like how the carpet makes the room very quiet. I can tell the difference as soon as I step in here.
You can see how the room looked last summer here.
