This bedroom from the Ralph Lauren Home collection is a perfect marriage of all the things I love in a bedroom.
- Dark walls: I love that cocooning feeling of being in a room (especially a bedroom) with dark walls. My own bedroom is an old Martha Stewart Shade called Monks Cloth. A soft gray-brown that is just dreamy. The walls here are probably a charcoal, maybe even black. Oh, so perfect!
- White sheets: I'm not against colored linens - decorative patterns on duvets, or even the occasional mix-match, but there is something so wonderful about having crisp, clean, lavender scented 1100 thread count white sateen sheets on a bed.
- Cashmere: If you can afford it - here's where you splurge. We spend 24 years of our approximate 80 in bed, so you might as well be comfortable. A cashmere throw, or in this case a cashmere throw AND a cashmere coverlet fit the bill perfectly!
- Candlelight: 'nuff said.
- Adequate lighting: Love that lamp - perfect for a lazy day of reading, or blogging.
So there, you have it. My style in a photo - clean, sophisticated, and personal. If you're up for the challenge, play along! Check back in tomorrow for a few shots of our newly blooming garden! I'm so excited!
