~By the Bed~

My love of French baskets continues and I knew I just had to bring this large one from Chris at Uber Chic home with me.  I wasn't really sure where I was going to put it at first, but it didn't take long for it to find it's home.

I've had many different things at the end of my bed over the years, but this might be my favorite and it will be perfect for holding extra pillows and blankets especially when the weather turns chilly.  Enjoy!  xoxo K.

Another great purchase was this pillow made from a Swiss army blanket.  I've wanted one for a while now.

My butterfly bush is loaded with blooms this year and not only do I love to sit on my porch and watch the butterflies swarm to them, but I love a bouquet of them on the nightstand by my bed to enjoy the sweet aroma as the breeze blows through the window at night.

Have a wonderful weekend!

  2. Simply gorgeous! Love the fantastic way this all works together. And of course I'm full of envy over that basket! Now I have to go check out your instagram!

  3. I adore your bedroom!

    My butterfly bush - was huge - didn't live with that horrible nasty winter we had. I was so bummed out. I never cut it and brought it in the house as an arrangement. Your post sure is making me miss it and wish I had done that.

    Have a wonderful weekend.

  4. The bedroom looks so lovely and calming. The bed reminds me of the one I had as alittle girl. Love the basket.

  5. Really like all of your inspirational ideas. I am sure you will make the right choice for your Bed. Have a great week.

  6. The basket is wonderful Kathleen, and perfect to hold the extra pillows. Your entire bedroom is beautiful! I think you already know how much I love your style...but let me say it again. I love it!!!
    sending hugs...

  7. Love your new basket, gal! Just everything you get your hands on!! Your room is so warm and soothing!! And I also love the pillow. I have an old Army blanket, but it's green. Love the grayish color!
    Have a lovely weekend!

  8. Love it all. So peaceful:)

  9. Beautiful basket Kathleen! What a treasure and it looks lovely in your bedroom!

  10. Awe swooning over all your beauty. I love the idea of curtains on the mantle. I may have to do the same. Thanks for sharing.

  11. It's all so beautiful! I love your vignettes. I wish I knew how to do the mantle. Did you lean it against the wall or is it nailed or screwed into the wall? Haven't been able to figure out how to do that. All the white is so refreshing. The black books and clock are just right. Love it all.

  12. Hi Kathleen,
    It's all so salvage over here :)
    I too have a love for French baskets, and it's been years around here with not being able to find those perfect pieces yet, in the last week and a half I have found three, and all 3 of them are large enough to make a French statement in my French cottage. I paid under $13.00 totaling all 3 together.
    They ended up at two different thrift shops here in town who new nothing of what they had on there hands....fortunate for me!

    I love yours, now that is a dream basket, I have been on the watch out for one much like yours to do just as you have done here....making it a perfect catch all for pillows and night bedding.
    It really looks great here, yet knowing you it will find many places to compliment your home.
    Love you nightstand vignette, and fragments here and there that wow your space.

    See you soon,
    Happy August hunting.



  13. Beautiful basket Kathleen. I just found one that is similar today for the pillow off our bed. Love this idea. Love this whole room. Gorgeous.

  14. It's beautiful! I love the pillow too! Please come share at the Anything Goes linky party. It runs every week.

  15. I bought a large basket at a yard sale earlier this summer and now I know exactly where I'm going to put it. At the end of the bed in my guest room. Thanks for the idea! Love your whole room! I just may borrow a couple of other ideas from you!

  16. So pretty! Definitely uber chic!

  17. Beautiful bedroom Kathleen and that basket is a great storage piece.


  18. Your bedroom is beautiful and the basket is a great addition. I wish I had the space for one.

  21. I always love seeing your beautiful bedroom, Kathleen! : ) That basket is wonderful and such a great size for holding accent pillows from the bed. I always hate having to put mine on the floor (or taking up my upholstered chair's seat).

  22. What a gorgeous bedroom Kathleen - love absolutely every detail about it ( we are building a plank wall with a faux fire place so I especially love seeing that too !!! )
    Just beautiful ! First thing that caught my eye over at Coastal Charm !

  23. Everything is perfection in your beautiful bedroom. The amazing huge basket, the night stands vignette, the Swiss army pillow, the salvaged architectural fragment over the bed ... Your room sings an enchanting tune.

  24. I love baskets...big baskets...and yours is just perfect for the end of the bed!!!

  25. It looks beautiful and I just love that pillow on your bed! :o)

  27. Such a sweet comfy bedroom, can I lay on your bed? I love love love the dark books with the dark clock.


  28. Just lovely! I love baskets too. Di@Cottage-wishes

  29. Can you tell me what color paint in on the walls in this room? Love it.

  30. That basket is fab Kathleen! I saw so many wonderful baskets last month when back home that I wish I could have brought home with me. You can use them so many places in your home.
