Sunlight and design frustrations ~


When I count all of my blessings one at the top of the list is that I am able to wake up so many mornings to the sun streaming through my bedroom windows in the most glorious way.


This room was designed by my husband. He tried to include everything that I wanted in a master bedroom suite: I wanted a a spacious room with a fireplace, french doors and a sitting area, and that is what I got.


The morning sun...well that was happenstance.


Natural light is such an integral part of a room and I don't think it is given enough significance. Throughout the day it can make enormous differences and the shifting light is what I find so difficult to deal with when picking out paint and fabric colors.

 But here it all came together for me and I am very, very happy with the results. 


When I go in this room it gives me hope for the living room project which I have been struggling with...trying to get the colors right and vacillating it seems everyday. In this room the natural light, which is the afternoon sun, has played a very important role. As much as I enjoy redecorating a room getting it to reach your expectations can sometimes be very frustrating, With this in mind the fact that I have finally found fabric to reupholster the canape is very satisfying...now for the rest.

Thank you for visiting, I hope you have a wonderful day.

  1. Your room is absolutely wonderful! What a precious gift from your husband. I love every part of your room but the sunlight shining in makes it even more beautiful. We are having some sunless, gray, winter-like days up my way - and then the sun breaks through and it seems all is well with the world!

  2. Thank you. It is one of my favorite spaces and on a cool winter night a fire in the fireplace makes it very cozy also.

    1. Thank you...he built it along with all of the rock walls in the garden...he jokingly called them 'Adrienne's Walls' in lieu of the emperor Hadrian.
