Hello! If you've been missing me and wondering where I've been over the past couple of weeks (I know you have), your wait is finally over, I'm back and I have plenty of blog posts! I've been traveling, but am finally home and excited to share my adventures. I took two trips over the last several weeks, first traveling to San Francisco for work and then to Bermuda for fun!
I was in San Francisco for a few days for a work meeting. Although I think San Francisco is a wonderful city, I'm not a big fan of flying across the country to get there. But I must admit, I had a nice view:
You may remember I traveled to the City by the Bay last September and stayed at the W hotel which had very funky and cool decor. During this visit to San Francisco, I stayed at the Palace Hotel. Although the W Hotel and Palace Hotel are both owned by Starwood Properties, they are decorated very differently. The Palace was very traditional and opulent, nothing like it's funky W counterpart.
My room had two traditional beds with wood post headboards:
The walls were painted with a traditional warm beige color and had pretty molding. The room was accented with gold accessories, like the mirror shown below.
My hotel room was also full of rich fabrics, with long floor-to-ceiling curtains, a beige bedspread, and blue throw blanket.
On the opposite side of the room, there was a wood desk, tv armoire, and an upholstered chair with ottoman.
Although I don't typically decorate in a Traditional style, I enjoyed staying in this room and admired the romantic bedroom furniture and stately accessories.
If you love the look of this room, check out how I re-created this traditional bedroom:

So what do you think? Do you like traditional bedrooms or do you prefer a more casual or modern style? If you love traditional rooms, Traci at Beneath My Heart recently did a beautiful transformation of her master bedroom. Elements of this traditional room can be incorporated into any bedroom, Rhoda’s beautiful bedroom at Southern Hospitality has similar prints above the bed and a blue and white floral lamp, but has a sleigh bed instead of a poster bed.
