When we bought our house, the downstairs room in the back of the house that leads to our deck was being used as a den.
I layered porcelain blue floral Euro shams behind the green quilted shams and then added the little blue-tipped birdcage accent pillow to tie the two together.
The bedside table holds a small lamp, clock, and preserved boxwood.
The dresser was a family piece given to us by my in-laws when we bought our house. I barely know an antique from a hole in the wall so can’t say whether it’s an antique or just plain old, but either way, it’s awfully pretty with its carved sides and little keyholes.
I didn’t want three sets of floor-length drapes in a smallish room so used the drapes just on either side of the sliding doors to the deck. To make the valances for the windows, I took a third drape panel and cut it straight across (width-wise), 6 1/2″ wider than I wanted the finished valance to be. I sewed a 3 1/2″ rod pocket at the top of each strip and put a 2″ hem at the bottom and mounted them on 3″ flat curtain rods.
I have two projects in here awaiting a top spot on my project-priority-list: the painting I mentioned above and a reupholster job on the little settee under the window. I love the lines of the settee but the fabric isn’t quite right for this room.
The guest room has come together bit by bit over the past several years so it’s a little hard to cram every last detail into one post. If you have any questions on anything I didn’t mention, do feel free to leave a comment or send me an e-mail and I’ll be happy to answer!
