I've already had 3 job interviews this week, and I have 2 more today. I need a nap. Preferably in one of these lovely rooms...

{the cream and aqua combination is ever so dreamy}

{one of my favorite spaces by Candace Olsen}

{more cream and aqua deliciousness}

{this room is so light and airy}

Sadly, our bedroom does not look like any of those. Don't get me wrong; I love our bedroom. I just can't seem to keep it tidy. In fact, I haven't even made our bed yet today. To be honest, I don't usually make the bed until about 5 minutes before the husband arrives home from work. That is a secret, so zip it! But don't you think an unmade bed looks incredibly cozy and inviting? I sure do. Here is a picture of ours:

See what I mean? I can almost hear it calling out to me...

Ok, that's it. The second I get home from my interviews, I'm going to make myself a Vanilla Chai Latte, climb into that lovely bed, and read "Lord of the Rings" until I feel sufficiently rested.

You may have noticed that it looks like the covers only go partway across the bed. That is because I am a covers-stealer and by the end of the night, all of the covers end up on my side of the bed. hehe :)

So, how do you unwind after {or during} a busy week?

I like to unwind by a bath or getting in bed early and watching tv or surf facebook....just relax! Love all those rooms!

Well, I am a big fan of your aqua and cream bedrooms, which is why they are the colors in my bedroom!

I also end up with all the covers, but it's not my fault because my fiance kicks his off during the night. So, I wake up in a sweat all the time. Niiiiice.

I unwind with a glass of wine in front of the fire! Preferably watching a nice show with the man.

i read trashy magazines in bed while sipping green tea (assuming my daughter's asleep and my husband's at work).

I had a look at the ruffled pillow you suggested to me and I have to say that would be the perfect compromise between ruffles and men!

Your blog is lovely!

I have 7 interviews coming up as soon as I get to CA and I am having mild panic attacks as well. I would love one of these boudoirs to relax in right now!

I love the chairs in picture # 1. Also I actually saw the episode on TV when Candice did that room :)
After my week I love having a warm cup of coffee and watching my favorite cooking shows :)
