At our old house, our bedroom was actually a den in the back of the house. It had three doorways. One to the hallway, one to the back yard, and one to the laundry room/kitchen, and that one had no door. When we had company over, everyone would have to walk through our room to get to the back yard. It was not private. Also, it had brown wooden floors, brown wooden paneled walls and brown furniture. My friend Erin drew up a home decorating book for me and she said, "For your room I envision a cozy log cabin feel." HA! She was very, very creative!
When we moved to our new home last year and had our own room, upstairs, WITH a teensy little bathroom, I felt like I was in hog heaven! It just felt so secluded and private and luxurious! I still love it, but it's . . . blah. It has the same light taupe walls we painted the whole house, gorgeous white crown and base moulding, a pretty ceiling fan and hardwood floors. It's nice, it just has no style.
Well, that's all about to change, babuy!! I can't WAIT to put my mark on it. I'm aiming for elegant, romantic, glamorous, but with our "we're casual people around here" touch.
I love, love, love this light taupe coverlet and shams, but everyone who reviewed it said that it's much lighter in person than in the picture. Wah! Any ideas? I don't want an ivory coverlet, I want a taupe one.
Pretty frames - going to use these to do my own version of the project you see below, as reported today by The Nester.
