Blissful Bedroom

Marianne over at Haven & Home posted photos of this gorgeous (& eco friendly designed) bedroom from Traditional Home yesterday. I loved this room so much that I had to go out and buy the magazine last night just so I could study it in more detail. I love the accessibility of viewing images on the web, but there's nothing like having a real magazine that you can flip through and revisit time and time again. I LOVE magazines, and as my husband knows, I am very particular about them. I have to be the first one to flip through them and give them their first crease. I never purchase the magazine sitting in front on the news stand, I've always got dig back a few to find the "perfect" one. So you can imagine my displeasure last night when the overly pierced girl with a mohawk ringing me up at Target started flipping through my new purchase AND making fun of the "overly done" photos inside...I about had a coronary. I digress.

There are so many beautiful details in this bedroom, it's hard to take it all in at once. You can view the rest of the photos here.

The thing that stood out most to me was the gorgeous bedside table lamp. My mom and I just chose this exact lamp for her living room last week (although they changed the shade for this room).

This lamp by George Kovacs is pure gorgeousness, and now I'm seriously considering it for my bedroom:

As we were out searching for lamps, we realized that many of the ones we liked were by George Kovacs. Here are some other great lamps from his line:

This last photo does not do the lamp justice at all, it's absolutely stunning in person. It's hard to tell, but the base has a clear acrylic center band with chrome on the top and bottom of it. It's killer.

Traditional Home seems to be upping their game lately, or maybe I just never noticed it because I was scared off by the "traditional" part of the title. Lately I'm being drawn to more traditional rooms (with a twist of course). I'm afraid I'm going to have to add this title to my subscription list now. Are there any magazines that have surprised you lately? Do you freak out if someone "messes up" your magazine before you get to read it, or is it just me?


  1. Hi! Thanks for the mention! I did not know that about the lamp. I am sending that information on to some people!

  2. Thanks for the sweet comment yesterday!!! I am a complete freak about keeping my magazines pristine. I used to keep them forever (I still have at least four years of "Sassy"!!!"), which I don't do any more, but I don't like them mussed!!! ;)

  3. I hate when people mess with my magazines, I want to be the first person to open it and love when the pages area all nice and neat, no crinkles. Glad to see someone else feels the same way :)

  4. Nice post - interior design photos ..Keep Posting

  5. I agree with all the comments on "fresh" magazines. Another pet peeve would be someone who decides that the magazine would make a good coaster and leaves a ring.

    Love the lamps. I will be online ordering today.

  6. I've been shopping for lamps- this post was helpful. love you selection
