The past month has brought most of the decorating together and I couldn't be more pleased.
The artwork was hung in the dining room and the mercury glass candlesticks grace the dining table. I have the automatic battery operated candles in the holders and it's so pretty in the evening when they come on. On the antique cabinet in the bottom right picture is a collection of oriental ladies.
This is one of our guest rooms that we call the "Queen Room" and it houses a solid walnut bed and night stands that my Dad built about 25 years ago. He also built the frame for the mirror to match the bedroom suite.
The chest under the TV was my paternal Grandfather's sea chest. My Dad refinished it many years ago and it looks nice with the bedroom suite. Daddy also made all the crosses on the wall. They are some of the last wood working projects that he did. I have a lot of mementos of family in that room.
This is our guest room that we refer to as the "King Room." This beautiful bed once belonged to Tommy's Mom.
I love the bedding that my designer helped me decide on for both bedrooms.
Just last Thursday my designer came and hung the window treatments in the living area. We have fabric shades on all of them that roll up under the swags. We didn't know if we would want any window treatments or not but after living with them for a time I felt like that the windows looked unfinished. And, Randi agreed and she came up with this suggestion and I think they are "the icing on the cake." The family room in the top left is a bit dressier than the other living areas so we choose a dressier fabric for that treatment and it sort of sets that room apart.
This is a close up of the swag (the less formal fabric) so that you can see a little more of the details.
It's been such a fun process and I'm sure I may add a few more touches as time goes by. But, it is good to go for now. Thanks for sharing in the process.
Things are rockin' and rollin' here at our new house today. Our daughter and her two sons arrived late Saturday afternoon and Tommy's sister and her husband arrived yesterday. So, we are enjoying a whole lot of family time. It rare for this group of family members to get to be together so we are going to make the most of it.
I'll see you the first of next week and I wish for you and yours abundant Thanksgiving blessings!
