how we stripped down our bedroom and took it from cluttered hot mess i'msostressedoutbytheseprojectsthatarestaringatmewhilei'mtryingtofallasleep to a relaxing retreat:
we dismantled the sewing nook (btw that it one of my all-time favorite pictures of my girl) and took down all of the art work off of the walls except for the large deer watercolor over our bed. i propped up the pig print as well as a prize winning embroidered bouquet (sewn by sam's mama) on the shelves for visual interest. we added some simple shelves to the corner where the nook was, along with some of our favorite books that i put in neat stacks. the goal has been to cut down on clutter and simplify. having our favorite books here clears our night stands and keeps them accessible.
we also hung these airy grey and white curtains and made them extra high for dramatic effect. they make the room feel so calm. the stereo has been carefully camouflaged behind the curtains, instead of out on display. my favorite thing to listen to right now is shrift pandora. dreamy.
when working on the vintage vignette i posted this and this to see what people liked better. the peasant was the definite favorite. lots of great tips on styling your home here.
searching for a better shade for that lamp. any great shade sources you care to share?
we are still in the process of moving a few other things around but i wanted to share with you our progress! makes me feel like things are moving along...
