Day 48: Items Purchased:0, Temptation Radar: 0, too busy to think fashion.
Once upon a time there lived a young, um…okay, middle-aged, mildly neurotic and most certainly shop-starved mademoiselle, who stumbled upon a most curious challenge: 5 days to revitalize her bedroom for out-of-town relatives who would be visiting. Necessary ingredients? New Paint, New Bedding, New Carpet…..5 days. With little time to plan, orchestrate and execute, failure seemed imminent. Shall we check out the finished product?
The little dragonfly chair on the left is the first piece of furniture I ever had re-upholstered, 10 years ago when Steve and I were newlyweds and living in our first home. It has sentimental value which makes its incorporation into the design scheme even more fabulous.
These throw pillows remind me of Montmartre village in France. The quaint enclave of Paris, was a favorite of mine on our recent trip and the inspiration for the room design. The burlap textured fabric coupled with the scripting in berry red perfects the look and adds a sweet touch to the cozy bedding.
