This room has been my "winter project". It has been so fun to work on! Now, for those of you not into this kind of thing, this post is long with lots of details you probably won't care about! Just a warning...
I mentioned in this post how I had begun working on this room which has come to be known as "The Nest". Gotta love it. Well, this room is the first room I ever really decorated without much help. It was fun because I learned a lot about what "style" I like. I went into it thinking of painting the walls yellow, painting stuff red, having black and white, and lots of vintage-y stuff, but it went a whole other way. I just started with things I liked (the bed and fabric) and rolled with it. That is my decorating philosophy. I don't really go into with a detailed vision. I just find one thing I love and let it lead on to the next.
|I had no idea what to put in this one so I used straight pins to pin up this old handkerchief.|
|On this one, I pinned this print. This is by Katie Daisy. I love this girl's art so much and would love to collect many of her pieces.|
|The pillow were really fun to make. I used this tutorial to make the yoyo's that I pinned on to some of the pillows. This pillow is made out of burlap and I love the texture that it adds.|
|The rest of the fabric that I used for the pillows and curtains is by either Jennifer Paganelli or Joel Dewberry. I buy it off of etsy because it has the best prices (The b&w polka dots are from JoAnn's.)|
|Any old lamp can become cute with a coat of paint and I made a flower pin to stick on the shade instead of buying a cuter one.|
|This is one of my favorite parts of the room. These pieces of furniture are hard to find. After scouring every thrift, antique, and junk store in Birmingham we finally found this at Consigning Interiors in Pelham. I didn't have to paint it or anything. I just recovered the chair cushion. I love having a place to store and display things and most of all, a place to leave my sewing machine out all of the time.|
|My mom came up with this great idea to store ribbon. I just bought a small tension curtain rod and it works great.|
