The master bedroom has been an ongoing project. It all began when I pulled a duvet cover out of the linen closet. Wanting to add more color to the room to break up all of the dark wood furnishings, some of which were my from my childhood bedroom, I painted the night stands green. I also made curtains and a boudoir pillow for the bed.
If that explanation makes no sense, please feel free to email me.
On to the styling...the shelves are filled with books, art made by friends, and photos that we have collected over the years. A few of the white pieces that you see were spray painted to add contrast. The lovely starfish that you see, was won on a giveaway sponsored by The White Flower Farmhouse
I have always loved birds and have little signs of them throughout the house. This pair of birds were bronze and I painted them white. They look much better now. The needlework is a blue-jay that Mom made years ago for my grandmother. When she passed away it was given to me. Then under the cloche is a hummingbird nest. Mom found it this spring after a storm blew it out of a tree. We have always wanted to see one of these little nests, but are sorry that it had to happen this way.
If you noticed the window seat, in the second and fourth photos, I am still trying the get up the nerve to make a seat cushion. I'm thinking navy with white piping or blue and white ticking...what do you think? And those two little bolsters will need fabric any suggestions designing women and men? The peach colored lamp on the chest of drawers will be updated too using this tutorial. Sometimes I wish there was more time in the day...
