I first acquainted you with my room decorating project in this post. Since that time I’ve painted, ordered blinds, reworked draperies, and dug through boxes of treasures that represent a variety of aspects of my life with my husband and family.
Here is what I started out with (no, that right window is not crooked).
Here it is now.
I have yet to bring my plants from my former house, and still need a few more accessories, but for the most part I am enormously pleased! Trust me when I tell you that the photos do not do this room justice. It’s a great beginning to my whole house decorating project.
My son pulled together all of the accessories to make a great arrangement atop the media center.
My cozy reading corner.
A basket collected on one of our travels.
My beloved Nancy Drews.
I changed my mind on the trunk, switching from the original rather simple version to this sunburst, darker trunk with legs. A furry bear footstool lurks in the background.
This is the picture that started it all. I swear I’m going to hang it one day.
My mother made these drapes for me years ago for a guest room. They worked out perfectly here.
More travel souvenirs.
A didgeridoo purchased in London is propped next to an African mask.
My dad’s pocket trumpet.
A camera my dad bought in Berlin near the Brandenburg Gate and Reichstag building (Hitler's Headquarters) in 1945, perched on top of a portion of my complete collection of Agatha Christie novels.
A septarian nodule dating back to my college days as a geology major.
Now on to the kitchen, bedroom, and bathrooms!
