A glimpse into my newly painted bedroom. In search for the perfect French lavender/gray, I found a lovely color for my east facing bedroom. After four tries Martha Stewart's 'Phlox' is the winner. Gotta love her colors and I'm a lovin' this one! Fresh, soothing and crisp with all white linens and trim.
The bolster was found at Ikea for a song along with the beautiful Orchid! As for the vintage crystal light fixture, she has been patiently awaiting her debut in the attic for a while now.
Look at the teeny bottle with coral I bartered with Jackie for at Bliss Farm Antiques. She is having a fab giveaway on her blog so hurry over there! Still working on artwork in here. Although I love my mirrors, I think this room could stand a fabulous pic of the Eiffel tower to aide me in my dreams to this faraway romantic land. The dresser and armoir need painting so I'll show you that later. Actually, I 'should' be painting right now but needed a break. It'll have to wait until I come back from seeing my boys next week.
My favorite pillowcases are made from vintage sheets and monogrammed. If you are interested in a set, let me know.
Ahh, the gorgeous cloudy purple bottles ~ picked up in NH on the way up to Red Chair Antiques in Petersboro! Pay Josie a visit too. You'll recognize her from recent articles in Country Living and Romantic Homes. Her place loaded with grain sacks, ironstone and monogrammed sheets, is worth the three hour drive.
Beachy Bedroom at it's Best ~
You've seen this curtain that I made from a vintage French sheet. Easy as pie. Just flipped the decorative edge over and stitched a tunnel. It's been hanging in here for years and don't think I'll be changing it any time soon even though it's a little threadbare and has some tiny holes in it. I love to wake up naturally to the sun rising!
And lastly, the linen duvet cover...new at Pottery Barn and I couldn't love it more. I've been wanting one for a while now but I do have my limitations! This one is well worth it. The weight, workmanship, size and comfy casualness that only comes with linen. Pure and simple. As soon as it arrived, I washed it on gentle cycle, dried it and dressed the bed! The very pretty voile bedskirt is from PB as well.
Sweet Dreams of Joy ~
