Master Bedroom Inspiration

It's almost spring and I have an itch to do a little remodel.  We moved into our home almost eleven years ago and have slowly redone things as time and money have allowed.  First was the mudroom, then the kitchen, laundry room, and family room.  One boy's room got an overhaul.  Next came the painting of the dark woodwork in the entry, dining, and living room HERE.

Now, it's time to tackle the master bedroom, lady's study, closet, and master bath.

Here is my favorite Bedroom Inspiration Photo that I have had saved for years

From the white silk curtains to the white bedding and upholstery... so soft and serene.

First we will pack up the room, rip up the carpet, lacquer the brown woodwork, and paint the walls.

Then, the fun of decorating begins!

Some of the finishes I have picked are...







My grandmother's sofa recently reupholstered


my dream carpet



inspired by this gigantic gilt leaner from Restoration Hardware...

I recently made my ruffled linen bedskirt and coverlet from 48 yards of white linen!  The White Silk for the draperies is on order!!  I've been showing snippets on my Instagram...

Still looking for the perfect chandelier, television armoire, and a few odds and ends!  I can't wait to get this party started!!

Setting a Pinterest-Worthy Table

Do you look around Pinterest and *wish* that you could set a Pinterest-worthy table?  I do too!!!  It wasn't until I really studied different tables and settings that I found my groove on setting a pretty table.  I glean so much knowledge from what I see out there in the real world....
Kitchen Shops, Pinterest, Facebook, and Instagram are all wonderful places to be inspired.  
One such Instagram account that has me swooning is LB Originals.
She helped me set this gorgeous table with one of her Pop-Up Tabletop Boxes from her etsy shop, Preppy Paper Girl.



Each Pop Up Tabletop box is Unique and Custom made by Laurie.
In my box were six plates, six salt cellars, 6 monogrammed napkins, and beautiful customized scripture cards.





The perfect start to my table, vintage and new, mix-and-match, all paired together.  "Perfectly Paired. Decidedly Darling."
To see more of my Thanksgiving table, go to my post here.

Now, Easter is soon upon us and wouldn't it be fun to surprise your guests with a gorgeous table curated by Laurie?

Valentine Felt Heart Garland

Do you decorate for Valentine's Day?  Even a little bit?  I used to just add some pink flowers here and there until I decided I needed to add a little romance to my mantle.  Well, off I went down a rabbit trail... This heart garland is just so simple I couldn't stop decorating!!!  I even layer ribbons and pom-pom garland just to cover all my bases. :)


In this post, I am going to teach you how to make this darling heart garland!


Supplies:


First, trace the cookie cutters or draw your own hearts onto paper, trace them on to felt and cut out various sizes.


I even cut out an "X" and "O"
Lay them all out as you want your garland to look.


Now start stacking them from right to left in the order you want them to be on the garland.



Here is a completed stack ready for sewing together.




This is the most simple part.


Begin sewing a straight line down the middle, to top third, of each heart


Just keep feeding them through the machine



This is what your garland will start looking like..



Completed garland!



And voila! There is a completed garland layered with my easy diy pom-pom garland and a store-bought garland.
