A beautiful master bedroom

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…

    talk about curb appeal!!! wow!! Love those monogramed pillows!!! what an yummy bedroom!!! nice job!! hey, seems like the allergies are here to stay. 🙁

  6. I love her house! Gorgeous! All that linen is dreamy. Where is a good place to buy linen inexpensively?

  7. It’s beautiful – I’ll have to pop over and check out Tessa’s blog. I’m curious what fabric is on that bolster on the bed. The room is really beautiful and I love the wallpaper.

  8. Thank you for sharing Teresa’s home. It was just what I needed today. Having just moved into a rental (and maybe it will be several years) I am struggling with knowing my style. I knew it before…but now things don’t fit quite right and there is a major change…and now I’m uncomfortable with how it all fits together. And I can’t paint the woodwork -ugh! Something about Teresa’s style resonated in my heart…and helped me to feel okay. So thank you!
    And now…I’m off to check out her blog!

  9. What a wonderful collaboration… you took a nice bedroom and turned it into a special room. I love everything about it… the linens,fabric,the mixture… and of course my favorite blue and white… it is a room that is youthful, but yet anyone would love to sleep in there. BRAVO!!

  10. Beautiful!! I totally feel you on the muddy toddler situation… I’ve got a son about to turn two.. constant mess!!

  14. Love the wall paper. So chic and glam AND fun!

  15. LOVE the wallpaper and oversized monograms on the pillows. The room is very pretty! I have crazy allergies this time of year and I take Children’s Diamatapp (the grape cold/allergy – NOT the red cold/cough) every night and it helps me sleep well and keep my allergies at bay … just thought I’d share. Hope you feel better soon.

  16. Holly this room is soooo pretty. Love the wallpaper and antique chest. Tessa must be so happy with how it is coming together. Beautiful job! Hope everyone is feeling better in your house 🙂

  17. What a beautiful room! I love the linen–where did you find it?

  18. My favorite part is the warm wood paired with the blue china and gold mirror – completely winning combination in my book!

  19. LOVE LOVE LOVE this room, Holly! You are amazing. Please come to Dallas and help me with my house 🙂

  20. Holly, can you link directly to the linen fabric source? I want to make curtains similar to this (http://pinterest.com/pin/124179569/) and am looking for an inexpensive linen fabric. Also – any ideas on where to get the stripe fabric for the trim?

  21. Holly, you did an amazing job!! Her bedroom is beautiful!! I love your blog. Happy Weekend!!

  22. You two created such a wonderful space! We feel honored to have our favorite pillows living in this beautiful room! xo Lisa

  23. Hello, I found your blog from Nine and Sixteen. I knew your name sounded familiar and guessed that I had seen it in a magazine. Yes! I totally remember that Better Homes and Gardens article. I had it torn out and in my “idea notebook” for the longest! I love your style and the bedroom collabo is beautiful!
