REDONE/REDUX

Yes, it has been SO LONG that I actually forgot my Blogger password.

I thought I would pop in for a little chat and to show you what I've been up to. I would need ten blogs to show you everything I've been up to, so let's just focus on the bedroom redo, ok?



The cavernous Mid Century walnut dresser was a $50 Craigslist find a year or two back...saved from Ebay by the fact that it weighs as much as a car and really can't be shipped



I bought a real piece of furniture, although it's West Elm so I'm using the term "real" very liberally.

Actually, it looks and feels very substantial in person. Purchased during a 25% off sale, and the in-stock fabric to avoid shipping charges, it was surprisingly affordable. Although for someone accumstomed to $0-$25 for significant furniture it was painful.



We had our carpet torn out and the 90-year old wood floors redone. We moved all our posessions out onto the lawn for two weeks. It was awful. Kinda like childbirth, it's one of those "if someone had told me how bad it was going to be, I would have never done it but I'm glad I did it and now it's over" things.



Thrift store abstract that has made its way onto almost every wall in my house looking for a home...the $5.95 tag is still on it. Once I commit to keeping it there, I promise to hang it properly (Morgan!)



Mid Century 20" diameter brass and glass globe, accidental Craigslist find (I went to buy a trio of Nelson bubble lamps, and the owner offered me this for $20).

Thrift store ceiling medallion $4.95.


Custom work from TerriPlanty, frankly priceless.




IKEA hide, $199. I literally pulled down every single hide in the middle of the store and spent two hours choosing this one. Ruben stood by holding my purse and trying not to gouge his eyes out. Brownie points.



Super-old Target coverlet. Eh, it works for now!



SO. MUCH. SPACE!



Nailhead



Finances and poetry? Dichotomous bedside reading. The enigma that is me.



Yes, it's real and it's fabulous (thanks M for the find!)

Oh yes, $25 on Craigslist.






It's funny, I wrote this awhile back about tidy, all-white interiors. I meant to install a psychadelic wallpaper feature wall and some jade green or yellow drapes. This all-whiteness was just meant as a "bottom layer" upon which to build. But it's so soothing, and such a nice respite from the deep colors and contast in the rest of the house, I think I'll keep it.

  1. Lovely!

    But to white for me, I could never overcome the urge to start layering random textiles on the bed, and then more art, and then . . .

    No more pretty white room.

    I think that West Elm bed was a good buy - it is very classic, I love nailhead trim.

    Thanks so much for sharing!

  2. Gorgeous bedroom! Those tiny rooms are difficult to make spacious and restful. I've succumbed to the mostly white look as well, and it's so fresh and cool.

    That chair by the bed would be full in about 3 sec., though, in my bedroom. Storage! Ah needzit.

  3. It's too white for me, too! But somehow am reluctant to mess with it!
    That chair...yep, somehow managed to drape two or three entire loads of laundry on it already!

  4. Nice home! I loved all above images and what is that on the floor. Is it the part of designing bedroom or under process? I really love white color to decorate my home and that's why I really prefer white furniture for my place. Anyway, thanks for sharing this.

    Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly?
    My site looks weird when viewing from my iphone 4.
    I'm trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to fix this issue.
    If you have any recommendations, please share.
