My Guest Room

We are now "Empty Nester's" , our daughter is off to college and our son has moved out on his own. I have been excited to create a guest room with some of the items I have collected but had nowhere to place them. Since our home is for sale I didn't want to purchase anything new and I don't believe in neutral rooms so I used paint left over from other projects. The striped wall filled in for my lack of paint and makes a great backboard for the bed.

I collected vintage frames and filled them with vintage wallpaper. 

This is my inspiration piece...I love, love, love this piece!

The chair is from my daughter's bedroom, she found a "new" one.

I had found these fabulous lamps at a thrift store with their original shades still in plastic!

My mother-in-law gave us the antique bed. I was going to paint it, but I love the wood grain in this room (plus what color would I use!?)

The only thing left to do is rip out the carpet and add wood floors (like the ones in my daughters room), but for now the room is ready for guests.

Eclectic Seaside Cottage

I found Vanessa Faye Wurman's Rhode Island home at Apartment Therapy . I love how unique the place is put design rules here!

"Vanessa’s furnishings, art and decor reflect a wide range of styles and origin. It doesn’t matter if it’s antique or modern, traditional or folk; if Vanessa loves it, she incorporates it into her home. Her aesthetic influences span the globe. There are bright Moroccan tiles in the bathroom, carved Mexican cougar heads in the guest room, and teak Tibetan monk statues from Thailand in nearly every corner."

Annie Potts Home

Annie Potts home is all over Blog land... Annie has listed her 6500sq foot, Spanish styled, LA home and the images are fabulous. This is a great house, built in the 30's with much of its original details still in place...someone is going to be a very lucky new home owner.

Tradional Home Magazine & Lynn Von Kersting

One of my favorite designers has a home featured in Traditional Home Magazine. I can easily recognize the work of Lynn Von Kersting the owner of Indigo Seas. The variety of prints, eclectic mix of vintage and ethnic furniture, lots of red and turquoise, and beautiful collections of vintage art and glass.

I think the best designers have a signature look that shines through in all their work.

Santa Monica Cottage

"HGTV Magazine visited this Santa Monica, CA, cottage that brims with candy colors, poppy fabrics, and storybook-sweet furnishings..."

Love the color, eclectic light fixtures and mix of furniture in this home.
