This little lady was my Christmas present from my husband, but in all reality she was really for the two of us. She now lives in our backyard and this moody pic was taken one of the snowy days over Christmas by my husband. I'm cold just looking at her :)
I've had such a productive time while I was off and that little bedroom re-arranging I mentioned last time we spoke kind of turned into a full on crafting/redecorating marathon and I'm here to show the results of my labor (even though it's not really finished).
Presenting the enchanted place my husband and I now jokingly refer to as the boudoir!
This room faces south and is bathed in bright sunlight for most of the year so the moody colors and sun make for an interesting juxtaposition. And just as a contrast - this is what it looked like before.
here, the arches over here, the making of the bed here and the sunburst mirrors over here.)
The floor mirror has been residing in the bathroom since I made it (here) but I decided it needed to be in here to balance/"mirror" the window on my side of the bed.
The design is a lotus flower which I copied straight from my Bible cover here.
What I have left to do in here is:
*paint the walls in a very light grayish lavender
*work on the bedding, it's all a hodge-podge right now
*hang the plant in the window
*reupholster my chair and slip cover it
*paint the husband's bedside table
I'm considering something like this for the walls. Or maybe something vaguely pink, now that I'm thinking about it. We'll see.
So what do you think? Is it magical or over the top? To me it feels kind of Balinese in a quirky way. And it makes me very happy to cocoon in here now :) The husband likes it as well, but if things are practical (which they are) he's usually ok with it almost no matter what it looks like.
