Regression


Without a good laugh at ourselves in life it can be very dull indeed.

I am still working on bringing this apartment into order, though basically it looks quite good (quirky, eccentric to others).

I was struck by this image the other night as I went into my bedroom. And I laughed. It is the bedroom of a teenage girl.

And I absolutely love it. I went mad on the aqua, obviously, but there's something about it that soothes me, oceanic in ambience maybe.

The bedroom is divided in 2. One half is my office/den - I'm still working on bringing more order and creativity to that side but it is highly functional and I can find everything. I will take a photo of that when all is to my satisfaction. My desk overlooks some gorgeous trees and brilliant skies and birds. And I still have room for a separate "ladies'" desk on one of the walls where I edit and revise my work.

The bed is very comfortable, Daughter had it custom made for me in the guest room in her house in Toronto so I am pleased it was never tossed. Double/queen/king beds take up an inordinate amount of room and this suits my downsizing splendidly. And it is massively comfortable. And if I am ever required to bed-share at my age I will be as surprised as you.

Do we all regress as we age I wonder?

The comfort of the girlhood bedroom offering newfound solace in the aging process?

But yeah, I'm happy with it.

You?

  2. The sunny yellow walls with the aqua is gorgeous! Aqua is a favorite color of mine so I may be a bit prejudiced. Many teen aged girls would have clothes strewn across the floor! You have made a room that makes you happy, what could be better!!

  3. I don't think it's regressing at all. It is knowing what you want and doing what you want. I also think your room is lovely.

    1. Thank you Carolyn. I believe I am the sole rebel in the building stuffed with heavy large marital bedroom "suites".

  4. Love that you know what you like - and stick to it.
    And a big hooray for a view to watch the birds (and a comfortable bed).

    1. Yes, and having the guts to do it and break out of others' expectations. I love the largish room and its little corners for each activity :)

  6. It looks good, WWW! I love aqua too - I have it (in a paler shade) all over our bedroom + a touch of purple.

    1. Nice combo, T. I was surprised also with how well navy goes with the aqua. An accidental discovery as I don't go quite with those colour wheels.

    1. LOL Anon, that was a $5 discovery at the SPCA, I was thrilled as I love the mason jar and the roses combo.

  8. I hope I will one day have a bedmate but at the point where I lose hope I'll be downsizing to a single bed where I can reach anything on either side without having to get up!

    I like your room and the aqua quilt will do minate just because there is an expanse of it but you certainly have not "over done" the aqua

    1. You'll be amazed at the space left when you downsize the bed Kylie. I was. I really don't want a passenger anymore :)

  9. It looks like you've got your apartment very well organised. And who cares what the bed looks like as long as it's comfortable?

    1. Totally. Really great sleeps there. I think it the mattress which was custom made. I've never had anything like it, thanks to Daughter.

  10. Whatever works for you is all that matters. I’m partial to oceanic colors and always have been.

  11. I love your room, mine is also colourful, in deeper tones of reds and teal with touches of aqua and black.

  12. Regression or not, I can get used to a cozy corner bed like that!

  13. I don't know about regression, but beds should be cozy and warm your heart. Sounds like this one does both!
