inspiration for bed rest

"you may concentrate on appearances all through the rest of your house, but in the bedroom comfort should be supreme. i think that bedrooms should also be very intimate rooms-they should express your personal preferences in every way...of all the rooms in the house your bedroom is yours. "
~ dorothy draper

"for without the private world of retreat man becomes virtually an unbalanced creature."
~ eleanor mcmillen brown

"the desire for symmetry, for balance, for rhythm is one of the most inveterate of human instincts. "
~ edith wharton


happy friday ~ i hope you have a relaxing, balanced weekend!

I LOVED the happy pictures this post brings! especailly the mirror refelcting the green outside- though I find it an impractical idea- but what a beautiful picture it makes!

They all look dreamy, but that last photo is my dream of the perfect bedroom.

vineeta ~ yes keeping that headboard clean would be a chore, but might be worth it for all the lovely reflections you could get.

patricia ~ you have such excellent taste! that room is so well balanced & thought-out.
