Like Kim I realised I hadn’t shared anything from my place lately. This weekend I started changing out the look in my bedroom. Fresh and bright for the hot summer months ahead. Vibrant yellow, shades of green and lots of 70s and 80s florals. Once again almost everything is from garage sales, thrift stores and eBay. The rug is IKEA on sale and great for covering the ugly grey carpet. I’m using three in a U shape around the bed. The theory is to whip stitch them together with kelly green wool but that’s the theory. We stretched some retro bird of paradise fabric over a frame and it really brightens up the room. A lick of citrus green livened up the thrift shop side tables and yet another moss pot sits on a papier mache tray. My taupe bed throw is a concession to a large Labrador dog that won’t take no for an answer when it comes to lying on the bed. White would be wonderful but would stay that way for a millisecond.
At the foot of the bed sit two ottomans. They were originally covered in eBay sourced fabric to go with my patchwork couch from hell but now that I’ve changed my scheme in the living room, they have found a home at the foot of my bed. They need their legs repainted…. white I think. Speaking of repainting what do you think of kelly green for the cane headboard? It’s a small room but wonderfully bright now. A friend has helped me with the roman blinds for the bay window but do you think I can make them hang properly??!! I can’t take the old hardware down. Ugly vertical blinds once hung from ceiling tracks. The problem is the tracks are GLUED to the concrete ceiling and I’m in a rental and loathe to try to pull them down. So the new shades are still a work in progress. They are fab though 🙂 Vintage Vera fabric in fabulous greens and crisp white I scored on eBay. Maybe next time I show the room they’ll be hanging beautifully.
