I stumbled across this coverlet yesterday and as soon as I saw it, I knew that it was the exact shade of the ceiling in our bedroom. I’ve kept my eyes open for just the right addition of color to our all white bed, and when I saw it, I knew it would be perfect. I’ll take some more pictures later today in the daylight to show you the texture of it. I love it. The bench at the end of the bed was relocated from the now vacant living room, and it does make for a nice place to kick the covers off onto – at least that’s the theory if it ever warms up again. We have a wedding quilt made by my grandmother, but it’s on loan to the nursery because it has birds in it, and is the perfect place to perch on the window seat with a book, now that the window seat no longer has to serve as a changing table! (Way to go F on your big milestone!) Next up for this room – cord control – and getting rid of that pesky computer station with cords draped across the floor. But still – it’s getting closer.
I’ve always though that one day I would wallpaper that window wall, or maybe even tackle some hand painting on it, but now I’m starting to think I could achieve the same thing with some great curtains. I’ve been finding such inspiration for the living room, which of course bleeds over into the other rooms of the house. Maybe something along the lines of these:
This came from a beautiful house tour on Apartment Therapy, with gorgeous rooms, including this dining room, which really evokes the feeling I’m going for in the living room.
Which of course, could spill into the dining room, and I wouldn’t say no to a pair of Tulip Chairs if they were given to me!
Which then of course always leads me back to the ultimate dream – adding on a new light filled kitchen addition (with plenty of room for mass cupcake and cookie bake-offs) and turning the old kitchen into a linear dining room that opens onto the existing side porch. The more the living room sits in the dining room, the more I like the idea of two living spaces adjacent to each other. Taking your time, living in the spaces, and occasionally clearing them out to clear your head is really a lot of fun – and at least for now, doesn’t cost a single dime!
Next up: Arco lamp obsession fueled by gorgeous rooms… (lots of dimes, I’m afraid.)
