Home Tour House Prep Continues

The velvet curtain is really a vintage curtain for a child's play theater.  The coral umbrella adds a pop of color.

Here are a few shots of the room that I've been working in for the past few weeks.  Since this photo, we've moved the bed and I've added a small painting of a bird right above the umbrella.  

Old suitcases make the perfect holder for a collection of odd goodies.
 "D" already had the table and wall shelf in place, I just added the "dressings" on the table and re-arranged the goodies on the shelf.  Pinks and browns are some of my favorites too.  This is such a pretty room to work in.   

A small vignette of a curtain pull back, metal bird, broken watch and spools of velvet trim.  

My painting.  I'm going to go back over this with a piece of steel wool as "D" wants it to look as though it has been on the wall for a long, long time.  That will soften the edges of the design and hopefully take down the color a bit.  

To break up all the softness, Sandra got the brilliant idea to add some coral to the mix and then several of the accents have touches of black, so it keeps it from being too sweet. 

Goodies piled into a suitcase.
That's just some of the room. We've got a few more details to add.  I will take a few shots once we have the room completed.  It really is turning out to be a lovely guest room.


  1. It all looks just wonderful but.... ohhhhh, the painting around the edge of the door- I could cry, it's so beautiful. Wow, wow, wow. That is absolutely fabulous!

  2. So beautiful! The painting is so gorgeous it absolutely MAKES the whole room!


Thanks for taking a peep at my blog!
