Karla's house party is over...http://karlascottage.typepad.com/ ... I'm sorry I missed it. I really must pay attention next time!lol! But, I thought it was such a lovely idea... I wanted to go on and share some of 'my favorite' parts of my house too! The above picture shows the sofa table. The top piece of artwork is the very first I ever purchase when my hubby and I first got married... The second piece is actually a quilted square made by my step mother. I think its soo nice..
Here is the view on part of the entertainment center. I have hardly ever have used dried flowers in my home design, but this accents the color way and adds just the right texture. The photo is of 'the cross' made up of some of the wreckage at Ground Zero..
This is the white wall in the living room accented with these two antique maps. One is of my beloved Georgia (where I am from) and the other is Eastern Pennsylvania (where my husband is from).
The sepia tones are nicely complimented with the cream colored mat board and I framed them with a simple black wooden frame.
Can you see the black touches in the living room? Interjecting a smidge of black is a simple way to add formality to a room. A very nice design trick.
Here is another favorite design look here at my home... the bathroom.. We painted the walls 'Dove gray' by Behr premium paints from HomeDepot.. (I just love that place!) I was going for a clean fresh look so I added the white trim and shelving with a few stencils.
I have some more favorite places to share but I will hold myself back and end this post with my bed... I just love it! I recently redid the bedding. The walls are painted a pink again, but this time I stenciled the blue flower boarder.
To make the headboard, I just nailed the chippy white shutters to the wall. Simple and Shabby... it's uneven... a whimsical note.. never take one self too seriously is what I say!!LOL..the boys and my hubby call me the "Queen of crooked" sometimes....
The room has a warm glow from the matching lamps. The shades of the lamps are a dove gray that matches the bed skirt. I have switched all our master bedroom bedding to white or an off white color, very clean and restful color scheme. The bases of the lamps add just enough sparkle to the space...
