DD2 Bedroom


I thought I'd show you another room. This is DD2's room. It is basically finished. Someday I'm planning on slipcovering a chair out of the black and creme toile. This pillow is entirely hand embroidered. It took me FOREVER. But, I didn't know of anywhere to get it done this large. I like it.

I used a projector to get this design on the wall. It took me forever to start it and only a few minutes to actually paint it. The dresser I found in an antique store. I had planned on a lower, white dresser with a large mirror over it, but really like how this worked out and she has more storage. The picture frame still needs a picture in it.

I ordered this linen on ebay, washed it many times and made this coverlet. The headboard we used in her sister's hot pink and orange bedroom with a queen size bed. I think it works great here. The pictures are sketches from a design class that I found at the Rose Bowl flea market for about $4 a piece. I just put them into Target frames in glass. I repurposed bolsters from Ikea that had been green faux fur. Taking off the covers and making new ones out of toile. She loves it when she's home.

  5. Beautiful!! I just bought the Breakfast at Tiffany's poster at Target (3 of Holly Golightly's photos from the movie horizontal) and mounted in a black frame for my daughter's kitchen. Love the elegance of that era and you did an awesome job on that pillow! Blessings, Shay

  6. Hi
    I've just found you! I see a couple of my friends have left comments here. Had no idea about your wonderful blog.

    I love this room. Great work with the monogram. Just simply gorgeous!

    I'm preparing to redo our dining room, in a color similar to Tiffany Blue. Wonderful color.

  8. Hi Karen,

    Thanks for stopping by my blog and thanks for your nice comments :)

    I LOVE your dd's room! I LOVE HOUNDSTOOTH! I think it comes from watching Regis and Kathy Lee in the 90's....she was always wearing a houndstooth jacket it seemed...but actually I used to wear it in the 80's, too, it was BIG then, like my hair ;)

    I would love to add that fashion touch to my room, but I doubt dh would like it much, lol ;) Darn! And I have no daughters either, so I guess I cannot copy this idea anywhere in my house...but I definitely will send folks your way if they are looking for ideas for their dd's :)

    I am going to add you to my bloglist, nice to meet you:)
