Ack, next week some sweet new things are happening at home, namely I finally get to actually start to think about what I want to do with our bedroom! I know, I know, but here we go.
I can't get this idea of a blue haven out of my mind! Ack again. I think my favorite is Farrow and Ball's Oval Room Blue. Most notably used in Sheila Bridges Harlem home, I love me some Sheila B man, this kitchen, ball'n.
this, by the way.
Next up, we will have a seating area, and the chairs need to be comfortable, like I never want to get up, and even though I love the look of low back chairs, I need some for reals neck support...and since I am super lazy, and I learned my lesson with buying chairs that O has not sat in and given his O seal of approval...they must be new. Which naturally brings me to Room and Board, like Doy.
I like these, and they are tall enough in the back, and I would do them in a soft blue velvet, like Sheila did in her drawing room (her's are linen though.) Cuz you can order a Room and Board chair in any fabric you fancy. Yippy. OR I would do a nice bold spring green, nice huh, with nail heads! HOLD ME BACK.
They would flank a mantel (to put candles on, and put a mirror over! Hollah!).
Next I would love some blue and white patterned curtains...What I can't decide is if I want to hang them from my white rods, or if I want one of those curtain cumberbuns..what are they called? Damn, PELMETS! Thank you Domino.
They just cost so much, and I live in fear of spilling, but that will be later on anyway.
