A little bit Merry- Cottage Bedroom Christmas Details

I promised to share just a few more details and views of our rooms
 decked for Christmas

 I thought I would start with the little cottage bedroom and bathroom
As you might have noticed- simple is pretty much my mantra
with just a little bit of romance mixed in

I love little touches of Christmas.
Vignettes or details like a few simple ornaments on a crystal door knob are favorites.

In the bathroom- there are just a few touches

Simply a small tree on a chair
with sprigs of pine on the windowsill

a simple little wreath
and a couple pinecones, greens and ornaments in a cloche

It brings just enough Christmas to this small room

In the guest cottage bedroom

The bed in this cottage bedroom is an antique
that is covered in gorgeous creamy blue paint with white accents on all the details
it's beautiful and it wears it's age proudly.

I have debated painting this... so.many.times. 
but every time I am convinced that it would benefit from a coat of paint-
 that original chalky patina and color wins me over
and I wonder if I would regret covering it up. 
So... I wait and as you can see... I have left it as found. 

Even with all it's imperfections-
Broken bits, worn paint and caning that is in big time need of replacing.

sigh...I adore it.

The room got a little bit of MERRY
with the sweet little silver letters that are set atop the headboard.

The armoire was found with the bed and though normally I don't use matching pieces in a room-
because I really love the found pieces that are mixed rather than matched ~
in here- the armoire is perfect.
I use it to store fabrics and different styling supplies.

A sweet simple wreath- adorned with added dried roses
brings a touch of romance
I love these and they are so easy to make- will share more soon
as I made a couple of them.

That about wraps up the rest of the tour of the details in the cottage bedroom
and bathroom.

I can hardly believe that Christmas is just over a week away!
 I am going to try and combine a couple of the posts I had planned
and photographed
 I even have a couple recipes to share...
and I looked at the calendar and realized that it is already the middle of December
so I better get busy!!  :)

Tis' the season!!

You can find the full tour of the little cottage dressed for Christmas

Happy Weekend
