Cozy Bedroom for the Holidays

Good morning!  I’m doing all sorts of different things today.  For one, I’m posting on a Saturday which I don’t normally do.  Last week was hectic at work (my day job) and everything totally got away from me so I wasn’t able to post anything. Second, for the first time I’m sharing photos of my bedroom with you.  I think my bedroom is an intimate and personal space so I wasn’t comfortable putting photos out there for the world to see.  Plus I’m still decorating the room and it’s not really complete yet.  You’d think we just moved into this …

When I decorate I like using different textures and sizes because it looks more interesting.  And right now I’m really loving neutral colors.  So I’ve used one medium sized black and …
