Let's continue the tour of my Florida bedroom....
I found this little chaise in the same place that I found my dressing table.
I was in hog heaven that day.
I fell in love with its shape, so I whipped out my floorplan to see if I could squeeze it into this room.
This is how I found it.....
I love its arms, I love its legs, I love its back, I love its seat!!!!!
I actually use it, on occasion.
Especially, when I have house guests, and I want to sneak away
to take a nap,
or just have a little me time.
This is the table that holds all the stuff I use when I'm sleeping.
I moved them off when I took this shot.
(white sound machine, clock, picture of my mom and dad)
I was able to find two different style tables, for either side of my bed, that still worked together. They are the same height, and both have white marble tops, for a unified look.
This one has legs that are similar in scale to the chaise, chair, and chest of drawers.
Even though I mix a lot of styles and wood materials, there is a unifying design thread through the whole mish mash.
As you guys have probably figured out by now.....
Accessories are KING (or should I say QUEEN) in my household.
I love this parrot, and live in fear of the day, when, in my clutzy absentminded state, I knock it off the table and break its wings.
My only consolation would be, that,
I'M SURE I CAN FIND ANOTHER ON EBAY!!!!
I LURV him!!!
Here's a close up of the flower!!!
It's soooooo purdy.
The lamps are silver plate, and just one more set of things I need to polish.
They were so beautiful when I bought them,
and now they are turning grey.....
I had the lamp shades custom made at the Boston Design Center by
Custom shades are a major luxury and splurge.
They are like having couture for your lamp.
Check out this detail.....
We carefully chose the trim, and combined the ribbons to create this effect...
The larger ribbon is laid over the smaller one, that is also added to the top of the shade.....
Only people that love decorating could go on and on and on (etc.)
about a lampshade.
One last note for today....
You probably thought that the drapery fabric was the same as the fabric used on the furniture!!!!!
WELL, LOOK CLOSELY!!!!!
The fabric on the bed and chair and chaise and bedshirt, is a stripe.
The fabric on the draperies is an all over floral.
Just a subtle difference that makes my heart sing.
I never tire of looking at my stuff.
OK, that's it for this side of the room.....
On Saturday, we explore the other side!!!!!
Life in the Speert household is full of adventure and excitement!!!!
I'll be up in Massachusetts on
Saturday for my Mom's birthday,
but do not worry folks!!!!
I'm bringing my laptop with me, so I can be
REPORTING FROM THE NORTH!!!!
