For me

So this room...I made for me...for when I get stinking rich. Haha!  A girl can dream, right?  And, I did.  And, this is what I came up with.  I imagine it in a grand, hundred year old house, with 12 foot ceilings and insane trim.  Can you see it?  The walls are a fresh white.  The floor is wood, in a rich walnut stain.  And the ceiling?...the ceiling is covered in Ellie Cashman's "Still Life with Shadows Blue Wallpaper."    You still with me?  

Everything else in the space is based on that wallpaper.  Pulling in the light powder blue of the sofa, with the petal pink of the chairs, and gold....lots of gold.  The window treatments would be simple and clean.  A white taffeta.  Not necessarily practical, but, oh, so, beautiful.  The lamps are a little formal and stuffy, but the black shades keep it modern and new. 

Virtually everything was sourced via 1st Dibs.  Because, that is absolutely, hands down, my favorite site for sourcing.  And, if I became stinking rich...that's exactly where I'd go to furnish my home.  I will say however, that the rug comes from One Kings Lane.  Hide is the only way I could have a white rug in my life.  It's virtually indestructible.  And, withstands cat vomit (and other things) like nothing else.  

As a whole, this room is decidedly feminine, with all the curves, and pastels.  Because, I made it for me.  My husband was like, "No freaking flowers on the ceiling!" with our new home.  He knows me well.  

So, could you live here?  Thoughts?

'Til next time...
