Color, Containers & Hangers

Still working on my bedroom makeover.  I guess I should stop calling projects in my house makeovers, because really they are always evolving and changing over time. As soon as I think I'm finished, I change my mind and start all over again. 

Anyway, always looking for the perfect inspiration here are few from my latest bedroom kick- focusing on side tables and dressers
















My thoughts...

1. where are all the alarm clocks?

2. I need 156,457 trays and little dishes to organize things

3. flowers, flowers, flowers.

All of those side tables are beautiful...but your right! Where are all the alarm clocks? I've always wanted a side table that doubles as a vanity.

Funny about the alarm clocks, I recently saw a beautiful bedroom with an alarm clock on the nightstand all brilliant in neon numbers. It looked so strange in a softly muted room. So, I suspect many are on the floor just out of range of the photograph, waiting to be put back up on the table. :) Janell

p.s. I'm featuring your tray in tomorrow's post and interestingly enough, a mirror by the previous blogger who left a comment on this post, Sarah!

Katie said...

I agree with Janell...I know I try to avoid taking photos of my husbands alarm clock or the lovely glasses holder and bottle of antacids he keeps next to the bed :)

Jade @ Flip Flops + Pearls Design said...

All the clocks and misc stuff is hidden out of sight until after the photo shoots! Lovely images!

Funny, I was wondering the exact same thing about the alarm clocks as I scrolled through those lovely images! Tissue boxes, too. Those are essential for me at least.

BTW: I caught the "blogger episode" of the Nate Show this week. So disappointing that there was no mention of you guys! I spotted a few of you in the audience, which was fun.

I know!! where are the alarms, I know they take them out for the photo but still :( we all have one, its a real piece and basic piece in most o our rooms so it should be there I think...

Wow, beautiful rooms! Had no idea that orange headboards could look so great!

Emily said...

love that headboard in the second image. I never understand why clocks are never seen. There are cool clocks out there to put on display!!

keely @ luxe + lillies said...

All such pretty and relaxing bedrooms... and I totally agree with you on the ever evolving house... I'm never done either!

Looking Glass said...

I agree! All these photos are missing the extra stuff that we always dump on our side tables haha! I have so much on mine & every time I see these beautiful images I wonder how I can fix mine up to be cleaner....

Beautiful images though!

Love all of these images!

The Zhush said...

CRAZY! That Christina Murphy image is the inspiration for my own bedside tables that are being made in that exact style as I type! (she is my designer's former partner, and close friend!) And, I love all the other images as well...the flowers and lack of clutter/alarm clocks..photo op only, at least that is what I tell myself! :)

Stephanie Sabbe said...

It took me until the third image to say, wait, this isn't linds' bedroom. I thought you made yourself a new headboard and I was super impressed

Janell @ Isabella and Max said...

Love the Ikea dresser, wow! Janell
