We're taking advantage of the fact that all three of our children are at camp for the next month. What does that mean? It means that we have turned our home into a design lab: moving around furniture, painting walls, etc...
Our first "experiment" is our bedroom. As a few of you might remember, I purchased something incredible from my friend when she had her moving sale. I couldn't resist buying this gorgeous bed corona with antique Fortuny fabric!
We finally hung it above our bed. It's a beautiful focal point in the room.
We placed our favorite lamps next to my bed. Steve and I purchased them on our trip to Venice, and they arrived a few weeks ago. I wish I could have brought back a dozen of them. I love their simple design. Their half shades give the wall a beautiful glow.
I recovered the Swedish sofa with an inexpensive gauze fabric that's just nailed onto the frame. I intentionally left the frayed edge of the fabric exposed.
We installed a simple Aidan Gray chandelier in the center of the room.
We are also toying with the idea of adding these old pine shutters in between the four windows. I like how they tie in with the fireplace...
If the bench remains at the foot of the bed, then we might put the sofa in front of the windows. A lovely velvet chair that Steve designed is being made for this room as well.
In the next few weeks I'll show you how things progress. I'm also planning to share with you a couple of other home projects we're working on!
