Cozy & Unique Bedrooms

As our weatherman here promises the hope of snow for this weekend (a rarity in Portland!) my thoughts are turning towards cozy comforters, beds piled with down pillows and a fluffy nest to warm up in! So, let’s pause from the holiday hustle and bustle and enjoy some inspiration for cozy & unique bedrooms!

    Pure lusciousness! I’m sure that I could enjoy every single one. But why oh why is it that the bedrooms here become storage spaces? Sigh. I really need to get a handle on this one day and soon if I ever hope to reach such heights as you’ve shared here.

    Hope that you get your snow~!

    Oh my goodness, these are soooo beautiful! Maybe if I print these out and put them on my inspiration board I can work on making my bedroom as beautiful as these are!

    We are in the market to change our bed linens. This gave me a lot of ideas to share with Bob. I’ll show him this post and see if any appeal to him!

    Those are so beautiful! I enjoyed all the different headboard ideas. Snuggling in between the sheets and under the comforter is one of my favorite times of the day!

    Ooo…snow! I’m a little envious. We have rain all day and then perhaps thunderstorms this afternoon. It’s been in the 40s and in 24 hours it shot up into the 60s. Tomorrow it’ll be cold again. Crazy weather.

    I do love the cozy bedrooms. There is nothing like a fluffy comforter and flannel sheets in the winter. It always makes getting out of bed in the morning so difficult!

    Those bedrooms are gorgeous. Perfect inspiration as hubby’s and my room needs a huge makeover. I want it so that hubby and I will never want to leave the room. Hard to do with four kids, but still.

    Thanks for these photos.

    I would feel so comfortable in each and everyone of these wonderous bedrooms. Sadly, mine becomes a catch-all for all of my “things”….some day I will get a handle on my “things”.

    The third picture just calls to me-
    I know this morning I sure didn’t want to get out of bed- it’s sooo foggy and cold here.
    The only thing keeping me going these last few cold foggy days- is knowing that I have about a week of warm weather ahead of me-
    { but sad to miss what will be going on around here- but I’m sure to have lots of wonderful thing to catch up on when I get back :}
    Have a wonderful week-

    Thanks for the great giveaway! I can’t wait to see fabulous artwork on my wall! I’ve been lurking and entering an occasional giveaway but I never thought I would win! Thank you, thank you!

  10. Julia

    Gorgeous bedrooms! I’d like to curl up in a few of them myself this morning. :-) I actually have some of those photos in my inspiration file because I fell in love with them in the magazines.

    Congrats to the giveaway winner!! :-)

    Oh my….I’ll take any one of them or even half of one….thanks for the coziness. As you are hunkering down for snow, I am hunkering down in my hotel room with a tornado warning on YES , the only day we had planned on going this week. UGH! Murphy reigns. :)

  13. Kari

    Wow, you have posted at least 5 of my all-time favorite bedrooms (1-3, 5, 7) How wonderful to see them all en masse. It’s a nice way to notice the similarities between them so I can hone in on what it is I *really* gravitate towards. What a refreshing post this time of year!


  14. Ramona Owen

    Don’t ya just love it when it snows in Portland…I think that looking forward to it is almost more fun then when it actually snows! Should make the next few days fun…your photos are delightful.

    I hope that your holiday is bright!

    Sweet dreams would be the result of time spent in any of those rooms. I really loved the one with red and white toile. So fresh, yet cozy and inviting.


  16. Debbie

    Everything looks great….love those bedrooms! Wow….and boy would I love to take a long winter’s nap in one of those bedrooms! hahaha….ok how about just a nap?

    Yum. Lots of nice bedrooms! One CAVEAT: Oregon is subject to earthquakes capable of doing structural damage. So, readers beware, do not set your pillows under mirrors, windows or heavy pictures which can easily be broken or fall on you while you sleep and cause you harm!
    beautiful is great but safe is better!

    These bedrooms are elegant and luxurious to the point of inviting relaxation and sleep. It’s important to surround ourselves with beauty so that we can take care of ourselves. And when we take care of ourselves, we’re better able to take care of those we love and the world around us.

    Thank you for sharing photographs of these cozy and unique bedrooms!

    I love bedrooms. There are so many options out there. It would be so grand to change it up depending on your mood. Mine could use a good tweaking about now. Thanks for some wonderful inspiration.

    They are all wonderful, Melissa!

    They say we are to have snow/ice, early next week. We’ve only had flurries so far. Thought sure we had snow this morning, but it was a heavy frost. That was bout 5 am…the temp was around 20.

    I’ll try to remember to put a link on tomorrow. I have the lodge Christmas up, at the back porch.

    Wow. With the weather we’ve been having here in Milwaukee, if I had a bedroom that looked like any of these I don’t think I’d ever get out of bed!! DH and I have been looking to update our bedroom, I’ll share these and see if they spark any interest!

  24. Tamara

    Ooooooh those are just gorgeous bedrooms! One of these days I’ll find the time to do something to my bedroom…….but not till after Christmas :)

    oh melissa, each room is so beautiful. i love your eye! that blue bedroom with the stenciled stars took me back though. that is the exact same color/theme i did my son’s room in over 14 years ago :)

  29. Pretty Organizer

    These are my dream rooms! I think my hubby would die if I made him sleep in a shabby bedroom complete with an urn of flowers on the ground. .. BUT he’d go for the classical styles of yesterday mixed with a little modern flare any day. This was perfect.

    Thanks for a great peek in to these great escapes! Getting my Linky post ready for tomorrow! I’m trying to figure out if I dare do it on my adventures in getting the house ready for guests… and how my kids have thrown in the curve ball. We’ll see if the pictures turn out. If so, it’s another bare all into the life of the Pretty Organizer- and it’s NOT pretty. Happy Christmas Wishes!

    Those are some pretty incredible bedrooms indeed! Sadly, at this point in time, there’s no way I’ll be upgrading my bedroom to anything nearly as nice as these. The thing is, I live in a retired 1-room school house, and space is at a premium around here. :)

    love the rooms, my daughter and I will be doing her room over during Christmas break, looking at your pictures we wish our rooms were bigger.

    Oh my goodness, that first room is SO ME. Seriously, that color palette is exactly what I’m going for in my bedroom. I love it! LOVE! Thanks for the inspiring photos!

    These are so beautiful! I love them all!
    I agree with another commenter, using these to inspire me for bedrooms in my own house. Wow!

    So enjoying your blog by the way! I found it last month sometime and really love all the ideas from the pictures,etc. We are about to move into our house that we’ve been building. It’s still very much a shell but over time we’ll be painting, building the necessary cupboards and storage furniture and such. I have been inspired already by several things you’ve posted here for my kitchen and other rooms in the house. Thanks for all you are sharing!

    Oh, lovely. I pick #2, 4, 5, 7, 8, etc. Such gorgeous eye-candy on your blog. Thank you!!!

    I also wanted to say thanks for running the link/contest with Genevieve — I was one of the winners of the small house story contest but had lost internet for 2 weeks when our provider changed lines over Thanksgiving (I which led to 2 weeks loss….). Finally back up and thankful Genevieve contacted me, and for you. xo Colleen Chi-Girl

    Just love the 8th from the top, the reds and pinks are so dreamy; where can I find a quilt remotely as lovely as the one you pictured.
    I can see myself waking up every morning eager to see my pretty bedroom. What an inspiration.
