With all the comings and goings at the new old house I just realised that I never finished showing you the rest of the before videos.This is the master bedroom. A huge room with loads of potential. It's on the first floor at the back of the main house ... just across the hallway from the office. Big enough I think for a second bathroom to go in. No more long, long walks to the bathroom in the middle of the night!
My plans for the bedroom include black walls and ethnic textiles, tulip tables for bedsides and funky 70s lights. I took these just after the wallpaper came off. Much better! Thinking of painting the lights but I'm waiting until the room is done before I commit to a colour.
Not sure if the curly cane headboard will work. Perhaps the one below (picked up ages ago and patiently waiting in the garage). A bit more asian influenced to balance out the vintage suzani I have for a bedspread. But seeing them together here I'm not so sure. Think I'll have to drag the headboard up and have a play.
I wish I hadn't started this! Now I'm thinking about using these fibreglass sidetables instead and putting the tulips either side of my new 50s silk sofa in the living room. Bugger! Knew this would happen ;)
Of course lots of artwork. I'd like a triptych for the wall above the bed and picked up a set of three brass frames in a thrift store a little while ago. Want to do an ink piece mimicking this except three not four.
Still deciding on a rug. The floors are lovely old cedar boards and look great bare. I might wait until the room is split for the bathroom and then see what I can find. Sheep skins might be fun for winter or a big flokati. If Mickey would just let me have this one. Might be just big enough for the foot of the bed but not the whole room. Oh and my 40s plywood chairs... yes I can see those in the room too. Have to lug those upstairs too to play with!
That's it for this week. Hopefully this room will be painted in late February and then the fun begins. If you excuse me now I still have to put the last coat of paint on my office bookshelves so I can get my books up from the floor. Getting there!
