It's the little things, in this life...like the breeze of a ceiling fan while sleeping. We moved into our house 4 years ago and have worked steadily to make it our home. Finally, we are getting around to replacing the god awful lucite ceiling fan, without lighting, that resided in our bedroom upon purchase...and we have made work, while we searched for it's replacement. I finally just ordered said replacement, and wanted to share this deal.

I just decided I need a pair of wing back chairs for the sitting area in my bedroom. 'Wing back' often screams 'old lady' but I am honoring that little old grandma would resides in my soul and going with it, of course adding modern and whimsical fabrics. I excitedly boughta pair of chairs on craigslist for $12 each and am now scoping out fabric to have them recovered in. Yes, they are totally vintage, claw foot and all and I am already obsessed with them...just not in their current, garish state!
Here is what I am thinking of having the chairs recovered in:
I always think of a set of chairs or a couch as a man in a nice suit.
So, I am all about classic, solid, wearable fabric. I am not
too much into flash on a set of chairs or couch...that's where the pillows
Side note: on a single chair I would throw caution to the wind
and go funky! Especially on an old vintage chair that is screaming
for some funk!
I just can't decide if I wan to go dark or light???
and pillows in these (I like to think of pillows as the
neck tie accompanying a classic suit...be bold) :
I just love this, and think it will play off our bedding nicely.
I am totally gaga over this fabric! I think it will pair
nicely with the pattern above. Thinking a lumbar
pillow to sit in front of the square gold/cream fabric.
I literally want to glaze my walls in this pattern!!!
I am also liking this, but not as much as the birds!
So, I would love your feedback. Call me, text me, leave me a comment...give me your thoughts. Then, come spring, come read books and gossip with me in what will be the coziest little nook. I cannot wait!
My hubby had a birthday last week. He spent his birthday morning
and afternoon skiing (how royally great to be able to ski on a random Friday off in May, which happens to be your birthday...because Mary Jane extended the ski season 2 extra weeks!), then we headed out for 24 hours. I
planned our short adventure just 20 minutes away from our house at the newly renovated Union Station in Denver.
I thought it would be fun to spend our 24 kid-free hours checking out
Union Station, because 4 years ago (can it really be that long ago?)
this was our view, for our first 5 months in Colorado. .
I co-hosted a baby shower this weekend. In lieu of a greeting card, we asked the attendees to write a message to soon-to-be mom, dad and baby in the front cover of their favorite children's book. That got me thinking about a few of the favorites around this house, that we love to read, during our bedtime reading rituals.
Have you read this one? I feel like it flies
way under the radar, but it is such a fun
read, with a great message about being humble.
It is sooo good!
This has been a favorite of mine since I was a
little kid. I remember going to a book store in
Minnesota to meet the author and illustrator,
and we still read the copy that was signed
to me, as a kid.
