My Space - My Sanctuary

I could say something really cheesy like welcome to my bedroom, the place where magic happens but I won't.

Instead, I invite you to the most personal space in my home. 

What you see peeking around the door in the above picture is one of my Rudolph slippers. 
Aren't they freaking adorable?

I think so.  Warm and fuzzy too.  

Ta Da.  My bed.   
I have a tendency to be made fun of quite often as it is just me who sleeps on the memory foam, high thread count sheets, with 7 pillows, an ultra suede down comforter at the foot of the bed, and another down comforter with yet another ultra suede duvet cover on the bed. 

I've been told my bed is complicated. 

I've been told 7 pillows is a bit much, which for the record I sleep with 2, and rotate them weekly so the wear is even. When I read in bed, I use 3 of them.   

I've been told 2 down comforters is not necessary.  One is lighter than the other.  Some nights are cooler than others. It's necessary for me.   

I say poop on the naysayers. 

My bed.  My way.  
You can probably tell which side of the bed I sleep on as the duvet is flatter and the nightstand is next to that side of the bed.
That is indeed a teddy bear you see laying on its back.  Spooky is my nightly companion along with Mr. Sandman. 

My brother Roger gave him to me as a present many, many years ago. He looks worse for wear but he's precious to me and I like to snuggle with him at night.
Oooh, look a pretty picture from Ikea with some of my absolutely all time favorite colors.  Seeing that abstract painting makes me happy and soothes my soul.  Call me crazy but it does.  Isn't that what art should do for you?
Behind the ultra suede chocolate brown black out curtains is the same type of window with wooden blinds as in the office/crafty room. 
I prefer my room to be dark when I sleep.  Also, when the bed was placed underneath the window the room looked unbalanced so I decided to curtain off half of the wall.  

Whoopsie, forgot to put the Uggs back in the closet.  That's a normal occurrence too; to leave a pair of shoes in the above spot versus putting them in closet that is.

Here's my nightstand and what you'll find on it pretty much every day I am home. 
The lamp is a touch lamp with 3 settings, the iHome alarm clock, a leather charging station, a cordless phone, a battery operated candle, and my beloved Kindle2 aka Kenny.  
 The remote control is for the fan, which is behind the door year round.  The middle section is reserved for my crackberry at night or to charge Kenny when needed.  The third section holds the TV remote control sometimes. More often than not, the TV remote control and cable box remote control are in the second nightstand drawer and this section of the charger is empty.

The long section of the charging station is a mish mash of the earrings I've worn for the last couple of days, a nail file, a bookmark, and one of the candles that sounds like a crackling fire when lit.
Did you notice the insulated Starbucks "glass" in an earlier picture?  That's my best friend when I am not traveling or I have traveled by car versus air.  It resides on the monogrammed coaster because I am anal like that. 

Directly across from the bed and nightstand is the bathroom, which you'll see tomorrow. 

Behold the tall 5 drawer dresser with large HD flat screen on top. 
Next to the dresser you'll find the year round fan, a towels only hamper, and three hats not worthy of being squished in with all the others. 
Hanging from the door are the lotions and body spray I use on a daily basis in a silver mesh bag. 
Once you make your way past the door, the closet greets you. 

Thank goodness I can't see without my contacts in or else waking up to seeing crazy bedhead first thing in the morning might be a little much for me to handle. 

So, there you have it.  My bedroom.  My sanctuary. 

Tomorrow the tour comes to an end.  We have one room remaining, which is my quarter bathroom.  This my friends is where the magic really does happen. 

Peace, Love, Laughter, and Soul Y'all.

I love your bedroom! Your bed looks so cozy and warm and perfect! I have a Lasko fan too. Mine is pointed into the bathroom in the cold months and towards my bed in the warm. It goes on every night, year-round.

I'm guessing the quarter bathroom is your make-up room? I guess we'll find out soon.
