Calming and cozy were what I was going for with this room.
I change up what my accent color is in this room quite a bit. Most of the time I like it without any color but with lots of different whites and textures. Right now I just have a little bit of red here and there, along with my usual creamy whites and dark wood tones.
I just got this amazing pillow with the year our house was built on it. I purchased it from The Blue Attic an Etsy shop that is full of the most wonderful French linens and hand made items. I bought a couple really great things from Nathalie that I plan to show.
The year our house was built on an antique piece of French ticking, what could be better?
I found a scrap of this red and white fabric at the thrift store the other day and it is perfect for inside the pillow case.
I also found this adorable lamp at the thrift store for $10, it is perfect for when our guests want to read, specifically my mom.
Neal built the little beside cupboard and I keep books and other things a guest might need in it. He also built the little bench that sits at the end of the bed. The antique bed frame is a hand me down from my parents and the tall bookcase is a $20 Ikea "as is" find that I painted. The molding behind the bed is out of an old farmhouse, I bought it for $7 last summer at an antique sale. So all in all this room was very inexpensive to do, but who could tell?
Stay tuned for Part 2, coming soon!
