One Room Down - - Master Bedroom

I always hate to pack up all the Christmas and then clean up all the mess, plus every room seems to need attention with some kind of new vignette and decor.

This year the Master Bedroom only had a small vignette on the dresser, so cleaning that up was super easy, so I started with easy. lol  Out with Christmas and on to cozy for winter.

 I received this gorgeous pillow for Christmas from my daughter and it is totally perfect for the bed.  I think it is stunning.

 My mink throw is perfect for the winter months, and I love to snuggle under it.

 A simple and easy vignette on the dresser.

 I found this wonderful crystal dish before Christmas and it is perfect to hold my everyday jewelry.

 I always love to see pictures of my grandchildren.  Always brings a smile. so a few glitzy frames add just a touch of elegance.

 This is a floral arrangement that I redid with more aqua and cream.  Perfect colors to go with the pillows on the bed.

 Simple and easy, just my kind of style.

Ok, now I need to tackle the rest of the house.  How about you, are you taking your Christmas down?

    Your bedroom is so peaceful and so very tidy. The pillow your daughter gave you for Christmas is lovely with its soft fringe.
    I pray you have a year filled with bountiful blessings,

  21. Love your bedding and that pillow is just perfect! I think you've just motivated me to work on my bedroom. :)

    Blessings to you and yours!

  27. Looks very nice.I could sleep in there:)

  28. Good idea to start with the easy room, Marty! I will start to put my stuff away tomorrow. I was up way too early today taking my son to the airport and I know I'll be napping by 2! : ) Love your throw ~ it looks like the perfect snuggling throw.

  29. Marty,
    Simple and easy...elegant and classic!!! Your vignette is stunning! I adore the hues in your floral arrangement and the new pillow is gorgeous!!! Always inspiring!!!
    Now, I'm off to re~work the side table in my Master Bedroom!!!

  30. Your bedroom looks beautiful and I love that pillow it is so gorgeous. The throw is an eye catcher too.


  31. Marty, I wish I could snuggle under your mink throw right now. It's beautiful. Love the pillow your daughter gave you. Looks like she knows what her mom likes. Your bedroom is so pretty. laurie

  32. I just love the new pillow. Gorgeous. We took everything down New Year's day. I'm happy to have the house all cleaned up. It feels so much bigger with everything put away. Happy New Year!

  33. Marty, Your bedroom is beautiful and the new pillow is perfect for the room. Thanks for linking to the Open House party and Happy 2013! xx, Sherry

  34. Happy New Year to you my friend! :)

    Your bedroom is gorgeous, of course!
    We are just starting this weekend. It has been a little crazy here and I just wasn't up to it yesterday. :(

    Hope all is well!

  35. Marty...love your bedroom and the pillow is so beautiful..what a great gift...Starting the Christmas "tear down" next week....I like your idea of doing the easy room first!!

  36. Ohhhh! That Mink throw looks very cozy. I would love snuggling under it too. Your new pillow is perfect. I love the way it brings all your colors together.
    I didn't have much to put away, but it still takes awhile, because I clean and fluff as I go along. It's always more fun decorating than taking it down. We have done some of our biggest remodel projects after Christmas because it always looks a little blah.

  37. Marty this room is cozy and ever-so lovely~

  38. Marty, your bedroom is so pretty and so very cozy!

  39. Your room is absolutely gorgeous. Are you sure you aren't an interior designer?

  40. I like your one room at a time approach, I am going to adopt that for my deep cleaning schedule...one room at a time seems a lot less overwhelming! Your bedroom is so cozy and inviting, a haven for rest for sure!
