Sorry for the late posting today…I forgot Pete and I were leaving at 5 am to go to Chicago for a quick 24 hours business trip. 5 am is so rude it is almost inexcusable. 5 am should be ashamed of itself, as a time.
I had purchased this wallpaper for our house in Austin, and was thisclose to installing it but then I had a sneaking suspicion we weren’t going to be there very long and I didn’t want to waste it.
As I mentioned here, I had a moment of clarity the night before the shoot about our bedside tables that just were not working. A quick trip to the storage unit and Biscuit for new lamps made all the difference. Tray by Caitlin McGauley…we have ’em at Biscuit and they are available in her store.
I love my lucky bunny. A Christmas present this year from my mom.
Another angle before…
And now for my unfortunate iPhone pics of other angles of the room “after”. The curtains need some serious work. New rods and hemming. But it was a huge improvement over the poster board I had taped in there for 4 months when we got them up- so I’m going to live with it for a bit.
My great-grandmothers vanity.
And the memories. Our TV looks crooked here because it is angled towards the bed and I didn’t have the foresight to correct that before I took this stellar picture.
I have had a few emails asking me to talk more about the process of decorating/renovating, and doubts I have and how I deal with that etc. I am going to do a more in-depth post tomorrow on the rooms we have shown so far, but with this room I think the biggest thing for me was the wallpaper. I was so happy to get to use it…Besides the bedding and the side table situation, it is all the exact same furniture/curtains/rug etc that we had in Austin, but I just love this room so much more. The wallpaper was the inspiration behind the rug color, headboard, pink ceiling, everything- and though the paper we used in Austin instead was lovely, it wasn’t a perfect match and it never looked right to me.
here is a pic of the austin master situation for reference.
Right? Maybe it is just me but I think it just looks much right-er now. And I like the smaller scale/coziness of this room.
What say you? Leave questions in the comments and I will try to get to them all!
