Tour of room #5, the bedrooms, of my “dream” house.  Most of the images posted are rooms that I’ve admired and thought that IF we ever moved or built (which is highly unlikely) I would do this (fill in the blank with whatever great design idea I have observed).

I like our bed and bed linens but I would like to change the paint color in this room.  It is currently painted a Martha Stewart “Tea” and it’s a little more green than I would like.

This is the dresser/TV area of the room.  As you can tell it’s a pretty small room, but we mostly just sleep here so it works.

In our house the master bedroom is the first room off the entry.  I have thought this an advantage most of the time…as a light sleeper I could hear our boys come in during their teen years and knew if they had honored their curfew or not!

I like the size of this room and the mix of periwinkle and apple green are very pretty.

I love the beams in this room.  I also like the toile wallpaper but I know Hubby would draw the line there.

One of our 3 bedrooms serves as an office and the remaining bedroom is our guest room.

This conveys the current “feel” of our study, very masculine since Hubby spends weekdays there. (Image via Nate Berkus)

This is all I would need (space wise) in the study.

Back to comfy beds that guarantee sleep, right?

Love the painted floors and the old, chippy wicker hamper and the red and white.

Very nice.  Sunny yellow paired with soothing blue, I feel relaxed already.

I hope to one day make room in the office for a day bed so that little Olivia (grand daughter #1) will have her very own bed when she visits grandma and grandpa.

This (above) youngsters’ room is very clever.  Space saving too!  Maybe this would be doable on one wall of our study.

I love the ceiling in this room but more than that I love the bookcase.  I could see swing arm lamps mounted inside the headboard area.  It’s a very cool idea, don’t you think?

Wood paneled walls are always cozy but the push out windows above the bed seals the deal for me.  Such a sun-filled room would certainly give anyone a good reason to wake up with a smile on their faces.

This is the beautiful, grown-up bedroom of the talented Brooke of Velvet and Linen.  So very French!

I really like the neutral palate and the wood walls.

This would make a great teen room with the mantle for a headboard.

Is your bedroom inviting and a place where you can get the rest you need?  Pleasant dreams.
