We'd love to see your bedroom! Send your photos to chicago(at)apartmenttherapy(dot)com. The first 30 reader bedrooms posted across the four city sites will receive an AT book or tshirt as a thank you gift.

February is bedroom month on AT. Even if we tried to ignore to the notion of romance that one associates with the 14th (and why would we want to?) - we'd still think this is the perfect month to focus on the bedroom.

Why we think so:

1. It's cold outside, baby, time to cuddle up and get cozy. It's still getting dark early so you can head to bed earlier than you do in the height of summer without feeling even a twinge of guilt.

2. The bedroom is a fun room to design - it's the place to embrace some extra luxury. The higher the stack of quilts, the softer the fabrics, the lower the lighting - it's all good - you can't go too far. January is the month of resolutions so we are ready to embrace a little indulgence in February.

3. It's often more of a private part of the home, so we think people in general worry less about presenting their taste to others (except, of course, for those lucky enought to be invited in) and can feel free to REALLY choose the things that please them and them alone.

When you follow your heart with your home, it yields great results, so we hope you will want to show off a little - if you've created a bedroom you are proud of, take some photos and send them on in - we'll be posting them throughout the month. The first thirty beautiful bedrooms that are shown across the AT sites will receive an Apartment Therapy book or T-shirt as a thank you.

As always, your thoughts, photos, questions and tips are appreciated...we are hoping to hear from you this February!
