BLUE GUEST ROOM FOR BLUE MONDAY
I recently redecorated my guest room. It's still a "work in progress", as we haven't yet hung pictures, etc. But, since it's very blue, I thought it would make a fun Blue Monday post. Due to the lack of natural light, since it's been raining here for days, some of the shots don't show the colors to best advantage. The two swatches below are pretty good representations, however.
White matelasse coverlet and pillow shams from Nordstrom.
I got this pillow in Bangkok. It's Jim Thompson silk.
I ordered the curtains from the Source Perrier catalog. I wish you could see how pretty they really are. White organdy sheers with blue dots embroidered on them. The curtain rods are from Target.
This pretty porcelain lamp was in my bedroom when I was growing up. That makes it a genuine antique by now!
I originally ordered this sofa, years ago, from Calico Corners. I had it recovered in an inexpensive white cotton duck and corded with this blue-and-white check. The same cording was used on the headboard. This is a junky little table that I picked up at a yard sale and painted it blue.
This little fella is also made of Jim Thompson silk, and he too came from Thailand.
This bracket hung in my parents' house when I was growing up. My mother displayed various things on it over the years. I put the bunny on it for Easter.
This pine linen press is actually outfitted to hold computer equipment. I use it to store all sorts of things!
These glass flowers aren't exactly my usual style, but I thought they were kind of cool. I got them at Home Goods. The coffee table is "early marriage" and at 35 years old, I guess that makes it "vintage"--- just like the marriage!
