Make Your Bedroom a Comfortable PlaceRobin Azevedo @ 2017-01-11 16:27:37 -0800
I love the event of getting into bed at the end of the day. Feeling the embrace of my mattress (McRoskey byDesign of course) and the touch of cotton percale sheets, tugging on my camel hair blanket so it’s under my chin and positioning my pillows for comfy head and neck support.
Other aspects of my bedroom that lend comfort have nothing to do with my bedding.
- Bedroom French doors open into a small shade garden with a few favorites: A statue of St Francis stands under the shade of pittosporum; a Buddha is surrounded by the leaves of a Japanese Painted Fern. I wonder if St. Francis and Buddha converse. I’m lucky to have nature a step away from the bedroom.
- A ladder back chair in my bedroom since childhood days belonged to a grandmother. It’s an old friend by now and a reminder of happy days spent in my childhood bedroom.
- A shelf of mementos displays my mother’s wristwatch resting in a porcelain dish that has a blue bird perched on its edge (that pretty little dish belonged to my godmother). My father’s wedding ring and my grandmother’s tortoise shell thimble are placed alongside a collection of small photos -- my best friend Susan from fourth grade; my in-laws dressed for a Wild West party; my friend Sandra at age four, a collection of mother and daughter pictures look out into the room.
I encourage you to take the time to gather your treasures and make your bedroom a truly comfortable place.
