My Bedroom

Wednesday, December 18, 2013

I've been wanting to share my bedroom for some time now, but as mentioned in my previous post, these things take time. It's a continuous work in progress, but once I found the perfect bedding and meaningful accents, things started to fall into place. 
By the way, I'm not much of a purple/lavender fan, but we had our bedroom walls painted a soothing grey, which turned out to have unexpected lavender undertones, so we decided to just go with it.
Much of the artwork in our home was done by artisan friends or myself. The sequin wave paintings were done by an incredible talent, interior designer and artist, Brian Carroll. He's much more talented than he even realizes, and once I can afford to commission more pieces for my future Séchoir office, I will! Don't they remind you of fabric and fashion? 
And then there's the lovely "Cricket" print by Leigh Viner. Owning one of her prints is essential for style lovers and she has a to-die-for collection available at her etsy shop. {Enter to win one of her prints here!}
Being a wife and mother of two, I try to be practical (the circle raffia chest holds toys), but sometimes sequins are necessary in the bedroom too!

I love to mix prints and textures in my clothing, so why should home design be any different?
Wearing Calpyso St. Barth sequin pants and sweater. Stella dressed herself in Old Navy polka dot leggings, layered tank & tee with a thrifted sequin top.
I'd do anything for these people, and my happiest moments are moments spent in this home... with them.
Does it get any better than this?
Here's to loving what you have and having all you need, because you know your blessings when you see them!
 I am grateful.

Special thanks to interior designer and wonderful friend, Jay Krift, for helping these pics come to life.
