Pretty bedroom.

Diana of the jewels of new york has such a peaceful bedroom. Her bed is white because, she says, "I want to feel like I’m waking up on a cloud every morning." And she couldn't find the right soft blue paint, so she layered white paint over vivid blue. What a nice place to call home. (I also love the topiary!)

P.S. The coolest surprise party ever on Smitten...

who knew a bicycle could look so good parked in a bedroom!! love it.

Cupcakes and Cashmere said...

what a lovely idea! i'm also a huge fan of white bedding, but that light blue wall is what's completely sold me!

erica said...

there is nothing that makes me happier than seeing a bicycle in a bedroom. if only i had room for mine. such a calming bedroom, i love the wall color!

me melodia said...

This photograph makes me want to go home make some coffee and clean my room.
It's so clean, crisp and airy in there. Beautiful.

The Cottage Cheese said...

Ahhhh, very serene. This bedroom paints a beautiful picture of a very relaxing saturday: sleep in until the sun wakes you up, coffee in bed (preferably made and brought to yuo by your sweetie), then perhaps a leisurely bike ride to the park.

Jill of All Trades said...

How nice. Makes you just want to crawl in the bed and snuggle.

erin said...

my goodness i know. so dreamy.

Charlie said...

I love the simplicity of the room, the white the hint of green from the tree and the picture between the window. It is so serene. This post and the photo has inspired me to change my bed covers from my springy mint to pure white linens.

rachel said...

i love love love this bedroom and i love white beds! i'm moving in a couple of months and i can't wait to redo my bedroom in all white.

GracefulElegance said...

I LOVE this room!! You are right - it is just so calm and serene!! Love love love!

Alyssa said...

I love the hardwood floors! My dream is to live in a home with hardwood floors throughout one day....

Phone with a Cord said...

thanks for this posting. I just moved so I feel very inspired by it :)

Kristin said...

LOVE this. It seems very ethereal. I like her idea of "waking up on a cloud"

Joanna said...

I saw this and other bedroom photos on Design*Sponge and this photo was by far my favorite. There's something about the cool colors, the soft, rumpled sheets, and the coffee and bike waiting to be enjoyed that just do it for me. The topiary brings a little bit of the English garden indoors. All it's missing is a haphazard pile of books on the windowsill. But it's pretty close to perfect. Waking up to this on a bright Spring morning would be heaven.

Sweet Carolina Bride said...

I love this bedroom! It looks similar to what I have in mind for our bedroom when we move!

Dionne said...

This looks like a great room to sleep-in in. And then cuddle in for hours.

esther lee said...

Oh oh!

I found this last week and absolutely LOVE this place.

Totally gorgeous and calm.

Sweet Nothings said...

it makes me not want to leave the room!!

and PS..i saw the unemploymeny olympuics on Gawker yesterday, and sent a mass email to my company as a little laugh! who knew it was your talented fam!! :)

Tha BossMack TopSoil said...

Very fucken nice

Caroline @ patagonia gifts said...

This bedroom is absolutely dreamy!

Rachel said...

Bedrooms should be as peaceful as possible and this one is perfect. Waking up on a cloud sounds lovely.

debbie said...

i want to curl up and take a nap in that bed...

liza z. said...

holy moly! I was just looking at this post and experienced some major apt envy.

Michelle said...

I love the "wake up on a cloud" idea. Now I want to go buy white sheets.

Melissa said...

I love white bedding too!

Mouse said...

Beautiful! I never thought of layering paint, but it's a lovely idea.

Lauren K said...

The bike makes the room in my opinion. I love how great it looks in contrast to simplicity of the rest of the room. I think I'd forever feel calm and relaxed if this were my room!

Chessa! said...

I shared their link of Twitter last week after finding them on Design Sponge. I loved it! She really has such a beautiful home...I love the aesthetic. those windows are amazing...that light!!

Cafe Fashionista said...

The bike is a nice touch. Now I want to buy one as a bedroom decoration!

I *Heart* You said...

i love the windows!

Signorina Svizzera said...

I love that idea with the paint! Genious!

Amanda said...

I do love this room, and it makes me realize how much stuff I have in mine. This looks so nice with just the two little prints on the wall and the one little flower in the window- so pretty. And I agree with the others that the bicycle seems to go so well. I never thought I'd like a bicycle in a bedroom.

My one question is: where do all the clothes go? lol

love the white cloud bed...and bicycles with baskets!

You are my fave... said...

This is exactly what I want in a bedroom.

Thanks for posting about the surprise party. Natalia and I are both thrilled!

Lu. Lu. said...

I want hardwood floor so bad! I love this room

Maria-Thérèse said...

Very peaceful indeed!
I think I'd go crazy with too plain walls though. I'd hang one larger piece of art between those windows, I think... Although I kind of envy those who can keep it so simple!

I THINK you might like my photographs, art & stationery..?

Very simple and romantic

.caroline armelle. said...

i'd love to have that bike!

Carissa said...

that bed looks super comfortable, just want to fall right in and doze (well, maybe move the coffee press first!). the room is so simple and lovely and the windows really stand out against the light blue wall. looks like the kind of place you want to come home to and unwind...

[J] said...

Very!

east side bride said...

You're a sucker for a bike, aren't you? ;)

Meghan said...

I love it. It makes me want to curl up with a good book and a cup of tea!

Nicole Marie said...

Sigh . I love. I still cannot find the perfect set of not overly expensive white sheets. It's is amazingly... difficult - and annoying. hah!!

Nikki said...

Where is that bedding from? Does anyone know where I can buy it?

Tina said...

i love white linens...and that bike! fantastic!

Yvonne Anderson said...

Love the crumpled covers and the cafetiere. It's like someone stepped out of the shot for just a minute... perhaps to grab a croissant.

Just found your blog btw.

Thanks for the inspiration!

Jess said...

gorgeous-- we do the same, a big fluffy white down comforter and pale blue walls -- so, so soothing!

alifemorefabulous said...

I love the bicycle!
And I completely agree with her, I always love white bedding - it's like being up in the clouds!

paula said...

this makes me want to crawl right back into bed on this dreary day, sigh*

miss sophie said...

this is so the perfect quintessentially new york bedroom! i love how she made her giant windows blend so well into the rest of the aesthetics - and i looove her bodum french coffee press :)

Dallas Shaw said...

ahhh...nothing says romance & relaxation than an all white bed. I've always been a huge fan of the colorless bed, especially all rumpled and messy, even better.

Donna said...

I'm actually Diana's sister and last summer I interned in NY and got to stay at her lovely apartment. Let me tell u guys, it felt like heaven waking up in that room! Not only that, every morning she would bring me breakfast in bed!! Boy do I miss New York...

Desiree Fawn said...

a) I could snuggle up on that bed all day with tea and a great book (and my baby, of course)
b) this reminds me that my bike is still in my den and needs to head outside soon!

Gift a sweet dream
Personalised bedding has become extremely popular lately. And, why not? It helps your friends and loved ones keep you in mind every single night before they turn in. Imagine sending your parents covers with your photo on it. Family members just go gaga over such stuff. Sending out signature pillowcases, dream holiday memories etched on sheets, digital photos etc just makes not your own day but weeks and months for your loved ones. Personalised bedding with any amount of text, special love messages or sweet, naughty jokes for family members and friends make great gifts and sweet dreams. Nothing like going down memory lane with a personalised bedsheet and chatting cosily into the night with the warmth of memories keeping you tucked in comfortably. Personalised bedding can be arranged for all occasions and for all age-groups. You can even have personalised bedding gifts for corporate use with logos and themes defining the company vision. Personalised bedding with quotations that inspire you are great too. As you drift off, the positive thoughts stay with you and charge you up for another big day. Personalised bedding can be used for long-term stay in hotels for old clients as well. Nothing more charming to bring them back again and again!

Okay, this one is one of the best design ideas I was able to search today. We're doing a redesign of our home in Lakeland, and I want to keep the traditional hardwood flooring for my bedroom. I like the simplicity of this idea.
