Online Coral & Aqua Bedroom Design

Wednesday, October 8th, 2014

I recently completed an online design plan for Carol on a new bedroom design that she said I could share. She is recently divorced and was looking for a beautiful and feminine bedroom to come home to.

I found a coral fabric that we used as a starting point for the room:

So pretty! Carol wanted white bedding, so she is going to use this fabric as a duvet folded at the bottom of bed and possibly even window panels.

She already has a bedroom set that we incorporated in our plan:

I gave her a couple different wall colors to think about and she decided to go with Benjamin Moore Simply White:

Fabric for pillows on bed and on new white chair:

A beautiful new mirror for over the dresser:

And here is Carol’s new bedroom design board:

We love it! Coral and aqua is such a pretty color combination. I also suggested finding an old dresser that she could paint in a soft aqua color. Carol promised to send after photos which I will be sure to share with you!

Looking at all of the beautiful inspirational Fall photos here, here and here, I felt motivated to decorate my own porch:

I used the same wreath from last year I made here. In one photo, I saw a pretty white pumpkin with a black monogram. She had used a decal sticker for her pumpkin, which I could not find in large alphabet letters anywhere! But I like my ‘B’ I found:

Can you tell up close which is the real pumpkins and which are faux? Shhhhhh..Picking out the cornstalk was the best. Look, it still has corn on it!:

I might add an up light behind the cornstalk. That would look really nice at night!

Have you started decorating for Autumn? I know it is a bit early, but I was supposed to leave for Chicago tomorrow to visit my sisters and I was just planning ahead. I was looking so forward to it. Unfortunately, my trip was cancelled today but that is another story.

I am Linking Up with Serenity Now Link Party. Please join us for more great ideas!

Kitchen Window Ideas & Inspiration

Wednesday, September 3rd, 2014

Moving on with our kitchen redesign, it was time to talk windows. As you can see in our kitchen nook:

It is in need of some fabric love. But of course, things are not always easy. My husband does not want to cover any of the window molding and we do not want to cover up the view:

kit shades

Tall window panels will not work here because it is too small of an area. Plus all of the molding would be covered up. So my next thought was maybe interior roman shades:

I was pretty excited about the roman shades until my appointment with my window expert. He explained using roman shades would bring fabric to the room but when folded up all the way open, the stack would hang so low (because of the thickness of material), it would cover a lot of the window:

Our only option for now is to hang cellular shades like we did in the living room:

Their purpose is keeping out the sun which it does very well, without the loss of view.

As I am working through my own window challenge, here are some beautiful kitchen window treatments for inspiration and ideas:
