Sweet Escape: Four Poster Coziness

Sweet Escape: Four Poster Coziness

In the new issue of House Beautiful almost every article refers to the word COZY. Of course, I was very drawn to that idea! Especially right this minute because I am absolutely freezing! I am wearing a coat with a fur collar, that is how cold I am, even in my house. If I could type with mittens on, I would. I am ready to go put on my PJ’s and leap under my covers to be cozy in my bed, but I want to be ON TIME this week for my Friday Sweet Escape so I am staying up a bit longer to put this together. Because I love you all, I am a dedicated blogger.

So for our Sweet Escape this week, of course we must escape into Four Poster Bed Coziness! What? Is that lame? Pathetic? No adventures, no trains, no Scottish castles, no dreams of buying equestrian estates, just coziness? I know, this month just begs for posts on holidays and coziness. It is hard for me to focus on anything else!

Speaking of being COZY, do you know what my favorite movies are to watch when I want to be cozy? Father of the Bride and Father of the Bride II. I have watched those movies dozens of times. I laugh and cry the whole way through. I love everything about those movies. I adore the house (it’s cozy), cry about the daughter getting married, laugh hysterically at Franc. I might have to go watch it again right now. Love that show. It is the kind of movie I just want to watch wearing my flannel pajamas and bunny slippers. In a four poster bed, if I had one.

Ok, so coziness. Here are a few bedrooms with four poster beds that looked pretty cozy to me. Remember awhile back when I told you I was going to turn my whole third floor into a cozy master suite? I still am going to do that. Just haven’t gotten there yet, but I am still planning on it. A few of these cozy photos are my inspiration photos, so for those of you who have been my BFF you probably have seen some of them here before.

Thanks for indulging me in my cozy fest. You know, one of my BFF Shelbi Keeper of the Chocolates said the NICEST thing to me the other day (and please visit her blog for a great post on giving to a worthy charity!). She said I have the best girlfriend blog EVER. That is because I have the best girlfriend blog READERS ever.
