Restful Retreat

Share with your friends!

It’s been a long day and you’re finally arriving home to your humble abode. Your day has been packed full with work, deadlines and problem solving; and then gets topped off with family, dogs (or kids, depending on your life), dinner, and bills. Your family and friends might call you superwoman, but all you want to call yourself is EXHAUSTED.

I know we all have these days once in a while. And I know that at the end of a long day, all I want to do is  cuddle up and spend some quality “ME” time (because we all deserve it!) in my favorite retreat of the house … my bedroom.

Some people consider a bedroom to be used only for sleeping … not this girl! I could live in mine. There is nothing better than spending a rainy, cold day curled up in a big comfy bed or in your cozy corner chair reading a book, watching old movies, or creating fun crafts (always with a warm cup of coffee by your side).

This bedroom scene from Hooker Furniture’s newest Harbour Point collection just screams RETREAT to me. I love the soft textures of the woven headboard and footboard, mixed with the soft cream and grey tones throughout. The perfect bed to settle into and listen to it rain …

Every hardworking woman deserves a tranquil place to relax – a place that she can call her own and never have to share. I love the idea of having a cozy chair in the corner of my bedroom that can be the perfect space for only me. The Arden Chair by Sam Moore is “that” chair for me. With its deep, tufted back, wide feather down seat, and large ottoman, this chair could get me through a lot of great books.

To add some relaxing color, I would choose a tranquil, soft blue/green fabric such as the Haze fabric shown below from Sam Moore.

When I finally decide to climb out of bed, rise from my chair, and move on into the real world, I love having a special space where I can take my time primping and getting ready. This cane writing desk from Hooker Furniture works perfectly as a special “girl time” vanity.   The dainty details, woven cane sides, and pretty cream finish take me back to the times of Marie Antionette (“Let Them Eat Cake!”).

This cane desk paired with a feminine mirror and a frilly chair would create the perfect vanity space for lots of hair primping and make-up doing!  I love!

The FiFi Vanity chair below (also by Hooker Furniture)  looks like the perfect primping perch to me!

So, what’s YOUR idea of a perfect restful retreat? Does any other hardworking woman out there look forward to coming home to her cozy bedroom at the end of a long day? Just remember … we deserve it!
