An Enchanting Secret Garden Bedroom

Looking for an incredible nursery inspired by the secret garden? This secret garden bedroom is perfect for you!

When I think back to the most magical books of my childhood, I tend to think of classic children’s novels who have heroines with spirit and a dose of mischief who explore wondrous settings.

Luckily, I’m able to indulge my fantasies at places like Longwood Gardens, but I wanted to take it a step further and design a room based on Frances Hodgson Burnett’s enchanting book, The Secret Garden.  Continue reading “An Enchanting Secret Garden Bedroom”
