Still in the Bedroom and I'm Not Coming Out!

Good morning! Remember when you used to yell this at your Mom because you were mad about something and just stuck yourself in your room for the day? You were going to show them! Well, I think we should still be able to do it as adults!

Come in and I'll show you another angle of our bedroom...







On the far wall I framed some of my son's art portfolio. I love framing the children's work!
My son attends an Art college in New York City, lives there and loves it!




Best for last!

Here's my bedroom chaise. I'm a couch person-I must be looking for rest all over my house (and rarely seem to get it!) From here, I can watch TV in the armoire or teach my daughter how to crochet Barbie blankets. It's also a great spot for reading or just gazing out the window. The kids kind of know it's my spot. If I can't find one of them around the house, they have stolen away to here!

I bought the red luxe (but cheap!) blanket at Target, it is just so comfy!

Oh, yes, from my chaise I can see my collection of exercise videotapes I should be using...I lay there and count them and read their titles...I actually think about putting them in the VCR...and that's about it! Hee-hee!

It's too comfortable a spot from which to move!

The chaise looks so inviting! And such a lovely big window! How wonderful that that your son goes to art school in NY.

A chaise lounge is on my "wish list" - yours is gorgeous & I can see why it's a favourite spot! Your sons art work is wonderful.

I think I could cosy up on that lounge for a week and read books!
Perfect piece of furniture for a bedroom. Gx

I LOVE this lounge! Oh how I would love to have one too, and if I did have one, my family would have to use a crowbar to pry me off it! lol I had to laugh about you laying there reading the titles of the work out video's. Yep, that's how far I get with them too! Now lift and stretch! Bend and stretch! Argh..

I love your chaise and it is in a perfect spot....I have the same red throw from Target and just love it. In fact, I have about 3 of Target throws and like them all.
Thanks for coming by to visit today...
