Our reinvented room...

After my crappy weekend I needed to do something creative today to get me back on track...SO, I reinvented Masons nursery as a guest room. We have some guests coming this year and I thought I had better give these lovely people somewhere relaxing to stay. The mirror was a bargain find..I am thinking of giving it a white wash. The little bottles will hold fresh blossoms when our friends and family stay.
BEFORE
This is what I started with.
AFTER
I still have to finish off some things, fireplace, a canvas for the main wall and a little more dressing, but I hope you can get the feel of what I am after here. I would have loved to have put the bedhead on the main wall, but because of the fireplace, the flow of the room didn't work very well.

I have added these ticking curtains, which I still have to iron, to pick up the ticking pillow cases and the coverlet I will make once I get some spare time.
I love the whole navy and white thing in here, especially with the chunky textures of the wreath and the baskets that I have used. I have added a chair in one of the corners and a trunk which can hold suitcases.
It was so nice to get back into something creative and as the room comes along I will show you. I would love to know what you think so far

Nordic White

This gorgeous home on the Danish Coast is filled with shades of white, silver and warm wood which fits so well with the Colonial house that envelopes it.
This beautiful table is by Christian Liaigre, as well as the footstools. I think this goes so well with the Shabby Chic lounges from the States and the white floors.
This Kitchen is simple but divine with the American Squareback 1106 Aluminium Chairs from 1932. The concrete floors were grooved while wet to look like floorboards...love it. Double Butler sinks to hide all the cleanup while you entertain would be bliss.
In the Guestroom which is housed in the attic under vaulted ceilings, is a antique iron bed which is dressed in only white linens to keep the space light and paired with simple sea shell prints which mirror what is found out the front door by the wooden boat ramps.
The main bedroom is understated chic. This beautiful mirror is another piece by Christian Liaigre. The whole Home is stunning and I wish I could show you more.

Happy Birthday Cab!




I would like to say a very Happy Birthday to my eldest sister, Caroline. Hope you have a fab day and I can't wait for you to get here on Saturday. I am in the middle of making the Guest Room a bit more appealing as we haven't done much in here. So, I have some guest room pics to show you (Sarah Richardson of course).

Have a great day...ness xx
