We had the carpet replaced in the bedrooms and in my workroom. The original carpet had been there for decades and we knew that once we moved in, it would probably be decades later before we got to changing it out. The air quality changed immediately once we had them replaced and I'm so glad we decided to go ahead and tackle that. BUT, we were less than thrilled with the company we used and the wear the new carpet is already exhibiting. It's a love/hate relationship, for sure.
Let's start with the bed wall aka the tall wall aka the focal point.
Those lamps. Those glorious, beautiful orange lamps. I'm sure there is some fancy, specific name for them but I do not know that elusive name. I just know I love them. I found them at the flea market while hunting with one of my oldest friends. Actually, she found them and I fell head over heals with them. I had JUST finished painting this room and was specifically looking for lamps. Enter, fate. I got them for a steal.
Both pieces of wall art were found at Retro Den. I crushed on that large piece for-evah and finally pulled the trigger. I looooove it. I have a soft spot for pulled fabric wall art. Brent bought me the crewel piece for Christmas. I was shocked and elated! It's not necessarily his speed but it is SO mine. That's love, folks.
Take a wild guess where those pillows came from?? My work room! I did not intend for any of them to permanently reside with us but who I am I to argue with such cohesion? That black and white tree fabric is early 70s Marimekko. I bought it in shambles for $1 and made my cuts as carefully as possible to create that one pillow. It's probably one of my favorite pillows I've ever made. The Estruscan style horse pillow? That fabric came from the magical warehouse. After much research, I've discovered how rare and desired that fabric is and I have it in four different colorways. Swoon! Those pillow cases in the back were once my Mimi's. She gave me the whole set 15+ years ago and I made *fabric* wall art with the sheets but never hung up my finished project. I wish so badly I still had that entire set! At least I still have these pillows to hug. Enough pillow talk. Get it?
There you have it, our guest room! I really love passing through there and the environment we created. It's been an enjoyable process getting it to this point. Who knows how it will continue to evolve?! Want to stay the night??
