First, let me take this opportunity to thank Debra for this wonderful idea and assisting all of us with this challenge. I grew up in Myrtle Beach, SC and loved the beach. My husband and I traveled the world with the military and wherever we went, the ocean always called me. Two years ago we decided to buy our retirement home in South Padre Beach, Texas. After a lot of soul searching and number crunching, with the high cost of beach front property and insurance and a nagging feeling that I was not to retire on the beach, we settled in the Hill Country on five acres just outside of New Braunfels in beautiful River Chase near Canyon Lake. We do not face the water, about eight miles from the lake and my heart still belongs near the ocean.
I wanted my master bedroom to remind me of those days near the water. As I have gotten older, I remember the beautiful look of Italy and the Mediterranean and know that my “older me” wants that look coupled with a beach look but I do not have the talent to do this alone. The rest of my home is traditional with an Italian flair so I am hoping to flow thru with something that I know I can live with both in the summer and winter.
I purchased the seashell bedding from Pottery Barn and I hope to change it up a bit for the winter months to not look so much like summer. The rest of the items I have purchased in the last two years and kept in boxes until I figured out what to do. I have gone as far as I can with no pictures purchased yet for the walls. I plan to put the shears along the tops and sides of the windows in the reading nook. Please, please do let loose with your ideas, I am grateful for anything! Thank you so much for your help, it is so very much appreciated! God Bless and Happy Decorating, Pamie G. New Braunfels, Texas

And a P.S. from Pam:
PS: I have a small blog at Our Hill Country Retreat. Please follow me! Our adult children (our oldest son and his wife actually) gave our “ranchito” this name because of their mini vacations staying here with us on weekends retreating from Houston, San Antonio and Austin!
Thanks so much for helping Pam out with her beautiful bedroom. Remember, you don't have to be a "professional" to weigh in with your opinion and ideas.
