“I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.”
When January rolls around each year, most of us make a list of things we want to accomplish…whether they be personal goals or a “honey do” list for around the house! We are well into January 2017 and although I didn’t set many personal goals, I sure am thinking about all the projects that I had hoped to complete last year! Most of them never even got started….but there is a good reason for that, and her name is Ella Mae. Becoming a grandmother was and is at the top of the priority list! My major project that I shared last year was to redesign and repurpose my two guest bedrooms. Well let’s say that was a big project and it took a backseat to decorating her nursery and ooh-ing and ahh-ing over her!
We also love to travel and we decided many years ago to not put off seeing the world until later, but do it now.
Needless to say, Ella Mae and travel won out over the guest bedroom project.
This year, I am being a little more realistic with what I hope to accomplish and I am so hoping to complete at least one of the guest rooms this year. First things first: the color palette. Since I have always loved blue and white, and it is truly classic…that is my plan. I also love toile…so you guessed it…a blue and white toile bedroom it is! I have designed countless bedrooms using toile, but it has never made it’s way into my home…until now! In my younger years, I wanted to decorate according to what was the trend at the time, but now I always stay true to my personal style and what is pleasing to my eye! So bring on the blue and white!!
The blue and white fabric is pretty, but I will not be using wallpaper…the antique table between the beds warms up the space.
Toile mixed with check always works…the grasscloth adds texture and softens the blue and white.
The trellis drapery panels and the chairs are a beautiful shade of blue.
Love the canopy and bedding!
Beautiful fabrics and furnishings!
I am unsure when we will get started, my goal is to have it finished by late summer. New flooring is involved, so it will be a little more time consuming, and of course, it will be a huge mess! Do you have home projects planned this year?
