It looks so cold out there. So un-green too. I want to stay indoors all day, preferably under the covers. And I would, too, if I had this bedroom, spotted via Emmy Linnea and draped with a summery vine and stocked with excellent reading matter. I swear you wouldn't see me before mid-April. Here's how to recreate the look:

Above: A Baklava Table Lamp has a soft fabric shade made up of several layers. Flip it on and the bottom of the shade glows a soft pink. Designed by Claesson Koivisto Rune, it's 2355 SEK from Artilleriet.
Above: Get the indoor garden thing going with a galvanized Socker plant pot is 79 cents at Ikea.
Above: Not all ivies are created equal. For a delicate, lacy look indoors, choose a variety like Hedera helix 'Perfection.' Other delicate, needlepoint leaf ivies such as 'Itsy Bitsy' and 'Needle Point' are among more than 100 varieties shipped in 4-inch pots for $4.99 apiece from Mary's Plant Image via Efeu-Ev.
Above: Decadently luxurious, smooth white linen bedsheets from Rough Linen. The King Summer Cover is $195, the King Sheet is $160. The Queen Summer Cover is $185; the Queen Sheet is $140. A set of two Simple Pillow Slips is $80.
Above: A diamond quilted linen Ida Quilt is $695 from Matteo.
Above: For an introspective afternoon, Haruki Murakami's What I Talk About When I Talk About Running is $10.17 from Amazon (I assume you already read The Wind-Up Bird Chronicles).
Above: A lap desk is essential for propping up a book in bed; a Bamboo Laptop Tray is $19.99 from Container Store.
