A New Cozy Corner

I just repainted my bedroom and I love the peaceful calm colors we chose. We have a small bedroom having switched with our older girls, giving them our old master which was at the front of our house and not private with teens coming and going. We have loved being in the far back of the house where it is quiet and cozy.

All I did in here was paint. Linen White by Behr. Other than that most was already in the house.

I did pick up these two chicken paintings on clearance. They matched the color scheme well. An antique child's dry sink is my nightstand.

The paintings have a saying, "The rooster crows, but the hen delivers the goods." So true. I love to climb in bed early with my laptop or a good book and just unwind.

 We wanted something natural over the bed so I fell in love with this Smith and Hawken wreath from Target.

I have to admit my hubby as usual arranges everything and he took a garage sale chair and made a cute vignette with an old rag doll and a thrifted candle lamp. The bedding and everything else I already had. This room can be dark but this color has brightened the space and I just say, "ahh" when I walk in here.

My room is indeed cozy, but we love it and keeping things minimal helps this space to be relaxing and cozy.
My little candle lamp is set on a timer and each night it clicks on at dusk and there is always a warm glow in the corner of my room.


  1. Your bedroom does indeed look cozy and comfortable! I love to climb into bed early too to read and watch tv. :)

  2. Hi Elaine - I love your bedroom - so calm and cozy. I love your new header too. It's past time to update mine. J

  3. What a neat idea to put the candle light on a timer! Your bedroom is cozy as can be.

  5. Elaine- That looks so so nice. That is one of my favorite paint colors, too, and I have used it often. Your hubby does a good job of arranging things- xo Diana

  14. I love your room, I have begun to appreciate white walls in the past few years and find them not only calming, but a good foil for the brighter colors I like to add to my rooms. What a great idea to put a little candle lamp on a timer!

  15. Elaine, it is beautiful, calm, and cozy room. I love Behr paint and this is a great color. xo, Olive

  16. I climb in bed, along with the pupsters, grab my laptop, and head to Pinterest. I have Criminal Minds or SVU reruns on TV in the background. Course I don't have that "hunka hunka burnin love" alongside me like you do. Eh, at this point in my life, I like the dogs.

  17. I've got similar blanket beaters (don't know their real name!) on my kitchen wall. Love them!

    Love your bedroom!

  21. I love how cozy your bedroom looks. It's perfect! Have you ever thought about a career in interior design? You would do great!

  22. Great new header look! And where did you get those amazing chicken paintings? Your home looks beautiful.

  23. Morning Elaine,
    Your bedroom does look lovely and cozy. Love the idea of the glow of the candle in the corner, what a great idea that it is on a timer to
    go on and off at the same time daily.
    Sometimes it is fun just to move to another room, a nice change. One year when we couldn't go on vacation, and
    since we had an empty nest..I moved us to the guest bedroom for a few weeks and we used our newly renovated bathroom, which we had never used before and we ate out or got take out some of the time, and it was such a nice change, and sorta felt like we were on vacation............so a nice stay-

    Glad you are enjoying your new room so much...........what a sweet blessing.

    Have a great day hon,
    blessings, Nellie

  24. The bedroom looks beautiful! Definitley cozy I would love to be in there most of the time myself..

  25. How I love your restful bedroom. The light is so soft and inviting. Your chickens, plaids, hearts and the lovely wreath are all such wonderful touches.
    Have a peaceful day, my friend.

  30. What a wonderful space! And I like the linen color of the walls. I am thinking of repainting my walls in three rooms, and this might be a definite candidate. Thanks for sharing the name with us.

    I love your chicken and rooster and all of the other touches that make your bedroom such a cozy oasis.
