Hello sweets, welcome to a sneak peak into my bedroom. I added a bit of coastal bedroom decor in aqua with blue hydrangeas. It wasn’t planned or anything it just happened that way and then one thing let to another….
The other day I was determined to buy myself a nice bunch of flowers for the home. I was feeling the late-winter blues and I needed a bit of cheering up. Sadly the selection at the flower shop was just as dreary and dull as the weather. Nothing spoke to me. Except for this flowering hydrangea bush in bright blue.
So I did what I never do, but will do much more often….
I bought the bush and at home cut off all the flowers. It almost felt like a crime. But I saved the bush for planting in the garden later and I turned the flowers into a little bouquet. And then what…
My house was quite a mess and I couldn’t find a nice place for my little bouquet of blue hydrangea flowers. So I literally walked around with that vase looking for the proper spot. When I ended up in my bedroom. They looked nice on the nightstand.
Of course then things started to happen…..
…. and the conversation in my head went ……
Hmm, that vase looks nice there, but it really needs a little extra to stand out more, let’s go to the garage and look for some more props. That vintage mason jar might work, and the glass float accompanies that well. But that glass float needs to hang, where can I hang it from? Let’s move the door upstairs. But I hate the hook on that door let’s replace it, where is the screw driver? Hmm, maybe this is the moment to get rid of that nuisance of the missing knob on the nightstand, where did I put those glass knobs and where is the drill? Now that I am here, it really is time to change the bedding. And didn’t I have some aqua pillow cases somewhere? Let’s go hunt them down…..
Two hours later I had a nice little vignette and was very pleased with my new coastal bedroom decor in aqua . Flowers on the nightstand always feel like such an indulgent little luxury. I love it.
Do you put flowers on your nightstand? And does a new bouquet of flowers ever result in a two hour decorating session for you?
