Master bedroom inspiration board....looking to the past.



It has been a while, I have been missing...in the midst of packing boxes, and darting off to our last of the winter getaways, my blog has taken the least priority...I have felt lost....
I am attempting to find some order in the chaos, a bit of solace, by giving much needed thought to what I will do with the interior of our newly renovated home soon...

I have assembled some little bits for the colour scheme of the master bedroom...lavender, ecru, milk walls and a touch of velvet, Mole, for the two slipper chairs. The velvet is from Kate Forman, a British designer who I admire very much...
The colour Mole, is soft greyish brown, much like the colour of a little mole....



The above vintage "plumetis" will be used to embellish pillows for the bed,on ecru linen, as well as the lovely
lavender toile, just enough to fashion three large 12x12 throw pillows...


Vintage silver for accessories......this sweet vase, a new acquisition, from Marianne's in Sarasota, Florida.



I will be keeping my old furniture, it is French Provincial, painted cream, purchased from an estate sale in Palm Beach, years ago, a find, with another story attached to it, for another time.....I will be selling the large triple dresser and keeping only the bed and two night tables, and small three drawer bachelor chest....
.....editing....

.....a new walk in closet will take up the overflow.....





I loved the pastoral scenes in this fabric, and it is perfectly faded and the colours muted, just the way I love fabric to look....


The vintage handwork is a gift.....from a special brocante dealer......

The faded and slightly tea stained look of the paper is serving as inspiration for paint or fabric colour
in this room....




The gorgeous fabric and plumetis are from Sharon, the lovely and talented author of the blog, My French Country Home....



Dealing with Sharon, was a dream....I could not expect a more expeditious and simple acquisition, coming all the way from France...my treasures arrived in less than three weeks....
carefully wrapped, with care....



I wish I could purchase all of my dream items from Sharon's lovely brocante shop....be sure to visit her, you will swoon over her collection of French finds for the home and garden....



In the meantime, I wait patiently for warmer weather, so I can immerse myself into the garden, when I need some respite from the boxes and piles of life we have accumulated over the last thirty five years.....
Change is never easy, this has been my only home since I was married, over thirty five years ago....leaving it, for even just a short time will be difficult, and wondering if the changes we are making will retain the sense of what I have come to know and love so well....
