e’s room.

Last year, for her birthday, we redecorated E’s room. Her desired color scheme?   Purple and pink, probably my least favorite color combination.  I started twitching at the thought that it might turn out like something out of a Barbie movie.  Well, it didn’t.  And I think we were able to create a room that both mother and daughter were happy with.


It all started with the Mariska Meijers pillows.  That was my inspiration for the room.

Then we worked up a paint technique that looks like a wash.  I love the way it turned out.  Her bench-  a HomeGoods find that we had reupholstered.


The chandelier is actually broken, but I like it that way.  Speaking of broken…  I bought this picture frame on clearance at HomeGoods.  I had the mirror fixed and replaced the artwork with an enlarged picture of E.  I love the way it turned out.

We covered her bulletin board in the same ol’ ostrich fabric that seems to be appearing all over our house.  It’s so durable and versatile.  I still have a ton left, so you will be seeing more of this!

I love these heart push pins.BB3

Our Dining Room.

Last week, I showed you the transformation of our dining room console.  I thought I may as well show you the rest of the dining room while I’m at it.

The table was my parents.  They bought it in 1969, the year they got married.  It’s so beautiful.  I couldn’t part with it.

Remember those chairs I ordered from Home Decorator’s Collection?  Well, they have been given a makeover.

The other console is an oldie form Crate & Barrel.  We painted it Peppermint Leaf by Benjamin Moore.  The walls and console were painted in Benjamin Moore, Black Satin.

The curtain fabric was custom-designed by yours truly.  The gold medallions are hand-painted.  We used the same curtains in the adjoining living room.  I’ll be sharing those pics next week!

E’s Windows.

A few readers emailed me about the sources on E’s Windows…. Here are the dets:
I actually ordered her Levolor roller shades from Lowes.  I actually used the Levolor site that has a great tool that allows you to customize your shade virtually and even change the wall color to see what it will look like.  Here’s a screen shot of mine.

One thing that was not great was their color options for trim. Very limited.  The only pink trim that they had was this rose gimp, circa 1984.  It is actually MUCH more faded than this in person.
They also wouldn’t allow me to order a scalloped edge without gimp, so I ordered the rose and replaced the trim with a hot pink gimp after they arrived.

Her curtains are made of clearance taffeta that I picked up at G Street Fabrics.  They have both a liner and a blackout liner to prevent fading.

The hardware is from Restoration Hardware.  I always wait for a good sale before buying anything there.
