Bedroom Tour: Blessings In Bloom

“This God—His way is perfect; the Word of the Lord proves true;
    He is a shield for all those who take refuge in Him”
Psalm 18:30

Have you ever been in a situation where you felt like the Lord was just telling you to “wait”?  Waiting on the Lord can be hard, because our time table is not always God’s.  But we can look back and see that during those waiting times, He was working everything for our good and certainly for His glory.  Without fail, God draws near and invites us to rest in Him!  Katy (our chosen daughter) had been living in a one bedroom loft apartment for about a year and a half when she started praying that God would open up doors for her to move.  She loves everything about the outdoors and although her small apartment had a great view overlooking our city, Katy felt the itch to find somewhere that would allow a little garden space and give her more of a “home” feel.  For over a year, she would visit apartments or rental houses, and just know they weren’t the places God had for her.  So she waited.  And she prayed.  And she kept an open hand.  This past July, God placed Katy in the most adorable house- and it just so happens to be perfect for her!  She has gone from one small bedroom to three-and you can only imagine the fun we are having decorating!

 We started in her bedroom and are so excited to share it with you all today!  Come along as we count our blessings!

We decorated the bedroom on a very limited budget…using most of the furnishings from her loft apartment!

I found the duvet and shams last spring on Pottery Barn’s website.  The mirror was brought from the apartment and serves as a headboard! The lamp was recently purchased at Hobby Lobby for 50% off.  Katy had the idea to use a straw hat with a scarf for the wall.  Great idea and very inexpensive!  I love the added texture of the hat and the pop of color on the neutral walls!  Home really is where she hangs her hat!

The gray Euro shams, the yellow/white striped pillows, and the coral pillow were all purchased from TJ Maxx at great prices!

The small table that Katy painted is from her grandmother.  We added books and accessories that she had on hand for a sweet vignette! The white gauzy curtains are from TJ Maxx!

The white cross is a gift from one of the girls in her small group!  I love Hershey’s Kisses and maybe I enjoyed a few while taking these photos!  Hopefully it will go unnoticed!

Katy planted the zinnias and their happy faces are perfect for the bedroom!

Any guesses as to what the “K” is for?!

The chair was a great find at a thrift store and it was brand new!  A colorful pillow and a bright orange throw make for a comfy corner!

All you thrifters will probably be envious of this find…Katy bought the floor lamp at a yard sale for $3!!!  She used chalk paint to give it a vintage look and we found a burlap shade at Hobby Lobby for 50% off!

The pillow is a gift from a friend and it reminds us that we all have so very much to be thankful for and should be counting our blessings!

Snickerdandy coffee and an inspirational book are great ways to start a morning!

The black chest is a piece of furniture that Katy had!  Friends gave her a sweet housewarming party a few weeks ago…so many friends made beautiful and thoughtful gifts.  One of these is the “it is well with my soul” plaque!  I added a platter from a thrift store, a handmade cross, and a blue pumpkin!

We hope you have been inspired and encouraged to decorate, even if your budget seems a little tight!  Shop your house, visit the local thrift store, and maybe you could even take up a new found hobby of chalk painting!

We are just getting started in Katy’s house!  We will be taking you along as we make her house a home!

    What a lovely room! Everything is so pretty, and even better that you two worked together to prepare her new space. The colors are gorgeous, the thrift and clearance finds are perfect, and the hat idea is, too. My daughter and I had great fun prepping our kids’ apartment for school. We loaded up on bedding and pillows at TJM, too. Aren’t they the best? Thanks for sharing your daughter’s room. I hope we get to see more in the future. Looks like she’ll be very happy in her new space of answered prayer. Our sweet Lord loves us so perfectly!

    I have had a similar experiences in my life. When we are faithful to Our Lord and ask Him for help, doors open and open in ways even better than we imagine. So happy for Katy and love her darling room. Most importantly, I am glad to know that she has a special relationship with Our Lord.

    Big Texas Hugs,
    Susan and Bentley

    Beautiful, inviting, and cozy room! Ya’ll have created quite an oasis for Katy, and it doesn’t look budget at all, but specifically planned and designed! 🙂 Love the accessories! ~Rhonda

  4. Stephanie says:

    I have indeed been inspired 🙂 The room looks extra charming and the bright colors would put a smile on anyone’s face. You ladies did a beautiful job!

    Thanks for sharing with Roses of Inspiration. Hugs!

    Dear Pam,

    There is just something about your blog and how your sweet daughter waited upon the Lord for HIS amazing provision. As I looked at each picture I could see the hand of God; so much it brought tears to my eyes.

    I have my own amazing testimony of God’s provision for a beach cottage in one of the most exclusive areas in the Central Coast. The beach cottage is one house from the beach and a price that was unbelievable and one I could afford. When I was looking, folks would ask me my budget and where I wanted to live and when I told them, their eyebrows would raise and say, well, that area is quite pricey, I just don’t know if you’ll find a place like that. But my wonderful Lord said He would give us the desires of our heart and He went way beyond anything I could have ever dreamed about. I’m so grateful and I’m so grateful for your daughter.

    The room is beautiful. What a mighty God we serve.

    Blessings, Paula Bradshaw


    • Paula, I love your beautiful testimony and thanks for sharing it with me! The Lord is faithful and He can be trusted with every small detail of our lives. What a blessing to share His provision and answered prayer. I am so glad we have had the privilege to meet each other and my prayer is that God would touch the heart of each reader. Would you join me in that prayer? I praise Him for giving you the desires of your heart! Blessings and hugs, sweet friend!

    So happy for Katy! You two are going to have so much fun. I love the hat with the bright scarf. Everything looks just beautiful! I love those blue pumpkins, but haven’t seen any around here yet.
