Over the years my decor style has changed. *now there’s a shocker*
I’ve gone from country floral and all things home-made, to ethnic-full on jewel tones, buddhas, & elephants…..to where I am today which is a mish mash of all things that I love. Years ago, when I was living in my first apartment I decided “I will NEVER live in white walls again!!!”. Well, here I am 26 years later (shocks me to realize it’s been that long!) and I love the Benjamin Moore “Cloud White” walls surrounding me.
Ever look around the house at a piece of furniture and think “sure, you had a place at one time….now–not so much”.
That’s how I felt about my bed. What I once looked at and thought of as an amazing and beautiful 4-poster….just wasn’t cutting it anymore as I now have a different vision of the room I want to create. This new vision for the bedroom is of a French/Italian inspired retreat in a neutral colour palette, with soft bedding made of natural linen, and linen curtains blowing in the breeze created by the open door. What bliss!
And so began the metamorphosis…….
Our bed was painted in Paris Grey and Old White with Antique wash, accented with gold and silver gilding.
One word. GORGEOUS.
Yes, I am in ♥ again!!
I must say that I owe a large part of this to my other half. He convinced me that the bed was indeed amazing and to keep it (maybe due in large part to the $$$ of the other beds I was oggling). So that set off my mission to find someone who could re-create it into the masterpiece it now is.
Yes, I’m glad I did listen (this time) hehe 😉
(A little disclaimer here….the bedroom is still a work in progress so ignore the closet doors propped against the window– which by the way, have now become garden doors) To be continued….
