Delays are inevitable in any decorating project, and we certainly had a few, but it is worth taking extra time to insure you are getting everything right and good work can take time. Thanks again to Linda at Calling It Home for inviting me to participate in the One Room Challenge and thanks for following along!
To recap, above is the Schumacher wallpaper that was our jumping off point and on the bed below are the Chelsea Textiles pillows (originally in the living room) that were the inspiration for the color scheme.
And in case you need to be reminded of what it looked like when we started:
I am absolutely thrilled with how the custom bookcase turned out. Above is the Chelsea Textiles chest I had copied and below is the work of my genius cabinetmaker:
Sophie's new desk, also from Chelsea Textiles; the chair I found at Hedstrom & Judd in Hudson, New York.
And the Lee upholstered chair and ottoman - a birthday present to Sophie from Mr. H's mom.
I was late getting on the flokati bandwagon, but I am now hooked and have them in every bedroom in various sizes. Nothing feels better underfoot, particularly when getting out of bed on a cold Vermont morning. I bought them all from Overstock.com.
My workroom did a beautiful job of making the bedding and the headboard. We had a few consultations on the dimensions and construction of the headboard and I could not be more pleased with the quality of their work; it fully exceeded my expectations.
A few friends were surprised that I would be redecorating Sophie's room for her when in a year and half she will be heading to off to college. My reasoning? I want her know this will always be 'her' room and be sure she always loves coming back to it.
