on the drawing board – bedroom updo
when we purchased our house in 2009, we also purchased two pieces of new furniture, including a bed from Crate & Barrel. We liked it, and it was affordable. After placing the bed in this large room with its tall ceilings, it seemed cavernously empty. I quickly reproduced a look my mom created for me, when I was a teen-aged girl, with a set of curtain panels from Overstock.com.
It was quick. and easy. we already had the spare curtain rod and I adorned it with one of the heart garlands I was busy making for our wedding.
So we’ve been here nearly two years and our home is beginning to look a bit more like us as we consider how we want to really express ourselves in this space we are so fortunate to call home. Even though the curtain panel is pretty, it doesn’t seem to be a cohesive part of this room.
This is more what I’m thinking. A cross between this (image via Poppytalk)
and this (gorgeous image via Cote de Texas)
and this (seashell windchime)
Get where we’re going? I’m not very good at illustrating over digital images, but this is sort of what’s under construction.
Mixture of antique chandelier prisms, seashells, beads and buttons draped from a driftwood branch. Our bedroom is starting to veer closer to a relaxed coastal vibe. So for now, why not go with it? Feels sort of risky publishing untested ideas, but we’ll see what happens.
Thank you for reading ~ hope you’ve had a wonderful weekend!
