Sweet Spaces: Wendi Young

I first spotted this bedroom, designed by Wendi Young, in Traditional Home magazine.

It prompted me to paint my bedroom walls in SW "Rainwashed," and to add bamboo shades and smocked curtains.

A few days ago, I stumbled across this photo on Pinterest, and immediately fell in love with the design of this bedroom.

The muted colors, painted wood walls, French bed and settee, and delicate chandelier create a wonderfully serene space. I would love to nestle into that little alcove every night! 

When I read that the room was designed by Wendi Young, I realized I really liked this girl's style!  I wanted to see more, and I thought you might like to, as well.

Hello nap time!

I've got a bench and a dog.  I just need high ceilings with wood beams, a fabulous lantern, and whatever those things are hanging on the wall.

Jeeves, I'll take my martini on the veranda tonight.

What a view!

I would get a lot more laundry done in a room like this.

I happen to know a few boys who would love this room.

Love the color of those laundry room cabinets.... hmmm... 

Hope you enjoyed some of these sweet spaces designed by Wendi Young. You can see more of her work here.
