Compact Blue and White Bedroom Sources

Usually, I start with a mood board,  
even for my own projects.
It helps to visualize how things 
will come together.

Our rope door stops are from Target

Canvas and Leather handled baskets
Tommy has clothes stored in them now.
In an effort to get a calmer look on the shelves,
I turned the books around (so trendy right now).
Tommy thinks this is dumb.

I put a filament light bulb in there.

Sun should be out by 1 o'clock and who needs air conditioning?

Thanks for visiting!


  1. Love the look of this room. My guy moves out this weekend to his own place and I was thinking it could sure use your touch! Tommy's one lucky son! My son is going to have to suffice with care package meals once in awhile instead of a good decorating eye. Always love seeing what you find and how you put it all together. :)

  2. Cloudy and hoping for rain. We need it.

    Mary Ann, the comment above mine is not a legit comment. That is what I call a leech. It is a person paid to put these comments on blogs with a link to their commercial site. That is free advertising. I always delete those.

  3. Mary Ann,

    You did a great job on this room, Tommy (or any guest) is so fortunate to have such a beautiful place to relax in.

    I am drooling over those knobs from Anthropologie...wish I had a piece to put them on. :(

    Enjoying our cooler weather here in San Diego because I know it's temporary, it's supposed to heat up again next week. I think I could get used to San Francisco weather.


  4. It's always amazing what new knobs can do for any piece of furniture!
    Where I am it is finally livable outside and quite pleasant…but I'm sure it won't last long. I even have the AC off and the windows open.

  5. Lovely room Mary Ann - like the blue and white.
    We are having quite nice weather here in So CA, but I am sure it won't last long.
    Have a great weekend.

  6. Perfect room MaryAnn especially love the sconces and striped rug.

  7. Love all the details and you're the queen of making a room that says "Come in a stay awhile"! Here in Glendale, I just check the temp and it's a perfect 83! It's hard to believe it's the middle of July, but I'm not complaining. I know we will get our due 100 degree days soon!!
    Have a lovely weekend and don't forget to take your sweater when you go out!!!!
    xoxo Gail

  8. Love how you pulled this room together ... and bless Tommy for putting up with backward books!! We are having a gorgeous week and I hope this weather stays with us for a while!! Happy Weekend! xo

  9. It looks amazing, Mary Ann. Love the canvas baskets with the leather handles and the Palacek pendant…stunning!

  10. Thanks for sharing all of your sources - so much eye candy to feast on! I think those pendants are my favorite - beautiful and unique!

  11. Mary Ann- Thanks for sharing the sources! I was wondering about that light above the bed-love it.
    I'm always amazed at the way you mix high and low. You make it look awesome and effortless-but I know it's not! Beautiful Room.

  12. Wow!! Gorgeous!! Such a great idea with the shelving area!!! I adore those throw pillows!! Where ever did you find them?

  13. What a great use of that shelving unit! I just adore everything in this room. So calm. My favorite would have to be that Ikea dresser with the new hardware :)

  14. Great job! I especially love those Anthro knobs!

  15. Where did you get the bedspread? I love it!

    1. I got it years ago at a Ralph Lauren outlet.

  16. LOVE! I am dying over the blue ticking on the box springs!

  17. Love,love, love the bed! Oh, and our temp was 102 today with a heat index of 107 (in Kansas City).

  18. You know I love it! That first bedroom is gorgeous! and I'm crazy about that window treatment with the roman shades.
