I wasn’t going to blog today. I am not feeling great (allergies?) AND my toddler made and wallowed in mud in a matter of milliseconds this afternoon (how will i ever have a garden?) BUT i still wanted to pop in and show this bedroom. It is coming together AMAZING!
Tessa and I have worked on several area of her GORGEOUS home…I mean look at it…it oozes charm..don’t you want to go to coffee and hang out here?!
Well Tessa has great style and even better heart. She has a fabric obsession beyond even mine and she has taught me much about sourcing fabrics…she is an encyclopedia of textiles and loves to mix patterns! She is also a mother of boys so we have had a ball!
She has an eye for antiques (she bought this dresser for a bargain at auction) and a great collection of art and blue and white. We share the philosophy that blue and white pottery is basiclly a neutral that works in any room.
The wallpaper is classic Thibaut, perfect for the romantic slanted ceilings. The amazing monogrammed pillows are from Gramercy linens..bolster from Peter Dunham Textiles and buffalo check shams are Ballard. The room is such a mix of high and low and off the shelf and vintage or antique. I love that..makes the process so fun!
And of course Tessa needed a linen skirted desk..she loves monograms and paper as much as i do!
vintage bird prints.
And i love how she styled the dresser with a TON of frames…all or nothing..looks great just covered and paired with the gourd lamps from ballard to anchor the chaos. notice the linen drapes reflected in the mirror… We used the same inexpensive (but yummy no less) linen on the windows, desk skirt, headboard and generously gathered bedskirt.
So so so lovely..just like my dear friend..Bravo Tessa!
Thanks for letting me share Tessa..check her blog..it is great and I know she will have more details and photos coning later…
