The Serenity Room-A Peek Inside

Some of you have ask what my Serenity Room is like. I've talked about it for the past year, but few have actually seen inside it.

Here's a little peek..... I spent Sunday afternoon redecorating. Jim and Becka installed the mini-chandelier directly above the bed. Afterward, Becka and I hung the gauze canopy around the bed.

My Serenity Room is a quiet place where soft music plays, fragrant candles are lit, and favorite books are housed on selves all around.

With the canopy making a cozy nook enclosing the bed, I can now nearly shut out the world when I read or write.

This is my space. It is where I go to dim the lights, gather my thoughts and escape the noise and cares of the world.

My mission is to encourage all women to find a spot that is truly theirs, a spot they can decorate and call their own...a sacred space of peace and harmony.

Blessings.

It looks very serene and what a good idea. I'm afraid I would probably fall asleep there. My special place is my study, where I work and play but all by myself and away from the TV. I love it.

Oh Barbara, it is SO beautiful! I would love a gorgeous bedroom like that but, as I said in one of your previous posts, the only room we can let our birds fly free is the bedroom! So there are no curtains (only blinds) and I'm constantly cleaning up lots of mini-sized poos!

However..... you've given me an idea! :D There's no reason why I can't decorate my computer room like that.... what do you think? :D

The Writers Porch is my room! It is equipped for all forms of entertainment including, a Private Massuse Chair. Not to metion I'm surrounded by at least a thousand books! Your room is lovely and I agree, we women NEED our own space to escape to!

Ooooh, Barbara, your serenity room is beautiful. I agree with you, we should all have a special place in our homes to rest, think, rejuvinate ourselves.
Thank you so much for your kind words at my blog the other day. I appreciate your warm wishes and they have helped me to feel so much better :)
Have a Happy Day!

Barbra, your serenity room is just beautiful, so peaceful and quiet... very elegant. I know I need to make something like that for myself... and my bedroom is as close as it gets... quiet and peaceful... but is far from your sweet dreams version.

Thanks for sharing.
