My Favorite Room.....Junk Chic Cottage

8.30.2013



My name is Kris and I have my blog Junk Chic Cottage

I was thrilled and honored to have Kim ask me to be part of her Favorite Room Series.  It is so inspirational to see the new rooms Kim features.  

I truly love all the rooms in my home they are similar in cottage style but uniquely different from each other. If I had to pick a favorite,  I think  it would be my bedroom.  This room is my sanctuary where my husband and I go for peace and serenity at the end of a long day.

I love to use old vintage salvage pieces in my decor.  We took three vintage old doors and made them into our headboard. I love to have these pieces of history re loved back into my decor.

I use soft sheets and duvets for my bedding. I love to sink down into my bed at night and feel comfy.







I  love to surround myself with family heirlooms. This old darning basket was passed down from my great grandmother to my grandmother to my mom and now I have it. Back in the day you did not run to Kohl's or Target for a new pair of socks when they had holes, my great grandmother and grandmother would sew them and make them last.
Another heirloom I have is my mom's first set of suit cases she got as a High School graduation gift.  They were a dark blue and I painted them white.

Our bedroom gets a lot of natural light so I like to keep the decor light and airy.


I  added more romance to the bedroom with this old vintage chippy candle chandelier.  This candle chandelier is made from old wire fencing and  vintage insulators to hold the candles. Just adds some whimsy and romance.
I love the romantic feel of chandeliers in a room, especially in a bedroom. 

This is a jewelry holder that my husband made for me.  He took an old porch post and vintage door knobs and made them into this unique piece.  Now I have a great place for my jewelry.



I love this saying.  I feel I really have found the one for whom my soul loves.  I am married to a Fire Chief and he never complains about living in my white ruffle world.  He is a "mans man" and still allows for our home to reflect a softer romantic cottage decor.  He's a keeper.


I know you have met Bailey, Kim's dog, so I thought I would introduce you to our little dog Libby.  She is our 10 year old basset hound and even she is tan and white to match the decor!!


Well there you have it. One of my favorite rooms.  Thank you Kim for having me as a guest on your beautiful blog.
