When I started decorating Connie's bedroom, I chose the rug as the jumping off place for my design.
It was green with pink roses.....
just like Connie!!!!!
As this was a lady's boudoir,
we decided to go all flowery and pretty!
This was the picture I showed you last weekend.I tweaked it to add some color and pattern.
I made a needle point toss pillow for Connie.
Ain't it purty?????
I used a kit I found online.
It came with the painted canvas and colored yarn, but the colors weren't right for Connie's room, so I changed them to match the rug.
The flower was originally orange....
and the butterfly blue.
I also adjusted the background colors and added the borders to make the pillow larger.
If you want to change the colors on a needlepoint canvas, just make sure you keep the values (darkness and lightness) the same, so the shadowing will still work.
I also chose prints for framing that picked up the rugs colors.
(Like the reflective glare in the glass?????)
(I am such a good photographer!!!!!)
Next to the chair is a little metal table we found that had a vintage garden feel.
After searching and searching, I found this floral vase that I had made into a lamp.
I wanted some color on the table, and the white lamp we had been using just wasn't doing it for me.
So then we found a green lamp.
Actually, I think Connie found this green lamp.
You can see in these pictures, this was before I had made the pillow for the chair.
But the green lamp wasn't doing it for me either.....
I wanted something larger and with more color.
So when I changed the pillow and added the floral lamp,
it made me a happier decorator!!!!!
I tell ya.....
this decorating stuff takes
