A Most Fetching Friday: A Tranquil Bedroom

Today’s A Most Fetching Friday shines a nightlight on the importance of a tranquil bedroom where mind, body and eye benefit from quality downtime and restful style.  I’ve discovered the antidote to the energy draining, oppressive and tedious days of summer- retreating to a tranquil bedroom  where I check stress, devices, and the general noise of the day that grinds the gears at the door.

What design elements constitute a tranquil bedroom for one may not for another.  In design and in the pursuit of tranquility, personal preference makes the world go round.  Count me among those that unwind by watching television before bed.  Dave the Builder yammers wonders aloud how I can include watching television in my downtime is the right time viewing routine.

To quote a line from Sex and the City (a late night viewing favorite), “I love it, it’s my thing.  Let it go.”

When designing and decorating the master bedroom with tranquility in mind, a serene and calming color palette is conducive to a relaxing atmosphere.

Dave and I often play the what would you buy if you won the lottery game.  When I do win the lottery (the power of positive thinking) fresh flowers will grace the accent, dining, vanity, and bedside tabletops throughout Casa de Places In The Home.  In the meantime, the markdown sections of grocery store floral departments beautifully and affordably allow me to indulge my penchant for keeping an arrangement of fresh flowers on the bedside table.

Small touches such as fresh flowers instill a curated quality to your bedroom oasis and give a weary eye a colorful place to land.

Decorator Brannan Geary

The tranquil bedroom decorated by Brannan Geary is a Southern charmer. The classic Colefax and Fowler fabric Bowood, stunning window treatments, and fresh flowers beautifully demonstrate how the use of classic patterns, soft color palettes, and antique furnishings frame a tranquil bedroom.

I do love a tranquil bedroom that is calm, cool and collected.

This lamp is one of a pair that belonged to my grandmother.  The pair of vintage porcelain lamps in the Brannan Geary decorated bedroom inspired me to head to the Hopefully Classic storage closet to retrieve these vintage porcelain lamps with the express purpose of reintroducing into a calm, cool, and collected bedroom.
