One Room Challenge Link Up Party!

I love following Linda from Calling It Home! I especially love the One Room Challenge time of year because there is such amazing talent and taste out there and we can all learn something from each other! It was so wonderful of her to open it up as a linking party for those who happen to be doing projects and want to share. I decided to join in the fun as I have started revamping my middle daughter's bedroom now that she is off to college.  
The room is a bit  trendy at the moment with bright Tiffany Blue walls and hot pink touches throughout. I felt that it needed to grow up a bit and become a little more sophisticated. I hope that in doing this my daughter will love it and maybe respect this space a bit more upon her return from school. Well maybe at least she will make her bed!


One Room Challenge Linking Party!


Embarassing!! My daughter's room, well at least the part 
I can show you!





Plan going into action!


As you can see the room is in disarray!  I could only show you small glimpses since she kept if an utter disaster area! I have my hopes that this will change now that the room and child are growing up!

First things first, remove chair rail and paint room a lovely:
Revere Pewter -Benjamin Moore!


Second :Paint the following items crisp white and add new 
silver hardware!




Floor needs a lovely wool rug in pewter and oatmeal tones!



Bed needs new side tables that provide extra storage as 3 closets don't seem to do the job, go figure!


Roman shades in Duralee fabric is staying- like them and they add a little whimsy to space.


New headboard from One King Lane does the trick!




Side lamps will get revamped and art and accessories 
will be added!
Stay tuned as my daughter's room learns a little sophistication.

Oh Suzani!

I know that the use of Suzanis seem to have already had their day, but I still love them! Now Jayson Home  has given me a renewed reason to love them and that is the new color ways that they have feature on their site. They are light and airy and some have a touch of pastel and femininity to them.
I love them for headboards, ottomans and benches at the foot of beds. If large enough they make lovely panels too.  Check out these lovely Suzani's from Jayson Home .


The above images from Attic Mag show just how versatile and classic a Suzani still can be!

FALLING FOR FEATHERS

Fall is a time to re-feather your next, no pun intended! I love the use of different types of feathers mixed into decor with all the warm Autumn colors and textures. They look lovely with pumpkins and Fall foliage or just simply placed by themselves in an old vase or crock. Feathers are even beautiful used in hats or bouquets and even photography.  I found a place where the sky is the limit when it comes to available feathers and that's the Feather Emporium.  The site is amazing and their Pins on Pinterest are gorgeous. So for Fall put a little feather in your cap or on your coffee table. Happy Monday! All simply feather images courtesy of -Feather Emporium!
