You know how when you are on vacation there is every intention of blogging, reading that book and looking through the 10 or so magazines you brought with you.....
All good plans. Somehow I get rebellious and think "hey....it's all about me this week" and dump those activities. Of course in reality I am down here looking at what a poophole this place is after a busy rental season. Sigh......
Blah blah blah.....anyway before I left I was working on a bedroom for a neighbor. She wanted to lighten up the space and pull it together.
We started with moving a rug that she had in the DR into the MBR.
It's from Safavieh
Here are some of the fabrics I gathered....
Most of those have changed but you can see how pretty that wallpaper is.
The rug is gray but reads just a little lavenderish. Thankful that it was a 9 x 12 which is the perfect size for a king bed.
Here is the bed she ordered.
I like it because the foot board was short so it didn't take up any visual space.
I picked out the faux bois wallpaper from Schumacher. It has a vertical feel which helps with the 8 ft ceilings.
This made her a little nervous.....I wanted to do the whole room but we decided on just the wall the bed was on.
Since she already had one mirrored chest I found this one which was a little smaller but looked great with the existing.
That got ordered also.
That is as far as we have gotten so now it is time to go the distance and pull this baby together.
Since there is only one window in the room I suggested putting mirrors over the chest. I found the ones above on Wisteria but I also liked this one I saw at the mart in July.
I love the shape and the engraving.
Here are the lamps I found on Wayfair.
The bench is from Ballard Designs. It is going into a nook with the TV hung above it. You know....a place to throw your clothes:)
The fabric is Claire Gray.
This will make the room by bringing all the colors together.
I just threw some pillows in there [what is a design board without those right?] since we are still up in the air about that aspect of the space....baby steps:)
Meanwhile back to the grind of trying to whip this sucker into shape.
Cami on the beach!
