Navy and Beige Master Bedroom

A little over a year ago we bought a second home in Florida.  My daughter is a highly ranked national tennis player and often trains in Florida.  As we spent more and more time in Florida, it made sense to buy a second home there.  We are in Florida for the next two weeks so I thought I would do a tour of this home.  What better place to start than the master bedroom.
We bought new construction in a gated community.  Timing is everything and this home was partially furnished by the builder since they were finishing up the development and wanted to sell quickly.  The color scheme of this room was dictated by the custom drapes and pictures picked out by the builder's decorator.  
I chose the bedding.  I love this navy and beige bedding from Pottery Barn.  It's not too masculine or feminine.  The toss pillows on the bed are from Marshall's.  The bedside lamps are from Target.  
The chair was a find from Home Goods.  Home Goods has become my home away from home over the past year.  The toss pillow is from Target.
The floor lamp is also from Target and completes this side of the room.
The feel and tone of this home is different, as it should be, from our New York home.  The furniture is much less traditional and more transitional.  I've been having fun decorating in a totally different style.  Make sure to stop back as I will be showing off the rest of the home in the coming days.

Mackenzie Childs - Inspired Vase and Box

Yesterday I revealed my newly updated guest bedroom.  
The room is chock full of projects.  
I'm a big fan of Mackenzie Childs and harlequin designs in general. I needed a few accessories for the room so I looked around at what I already had in the house and transformed a basic clear vase and wine box.


The wine box I had lying around from Christmas when someone brought it as a hostess gift.  The clear vase was from Valentine's day roses.  

Using Annie Sloan chalk paint I had on hand I painted both the box and the vase in old white.

Using a ruler I measured out a harlequin pattern on the top of the box.  I free hand painted the vase.  On both pieces I used Annie Sloan Duck Egg Blue.  

The dots between the diamond pattern as well as the outline around the box was done using a Sharpie paint pen.

I added detail to the vase using craft paints I had on hand.


These were the perfect way for me to finish off the top of the armoire.  I love how they came out.

Can't wait to hear what you think.

Guest Room Reveal

It's been a while since I've done a reveal.  
The guest room has been something I've been wanting to update for quite some time now.  

Let's take a trip down memory lane.  
This is where this room began.
About two and a half years ago I decided to do a mini update and wallpapered the wall behind the bed and painted the other three walls a custom color matched exactly to the background of the wallpaper.
The wallpaper is temporary wallpaper from Target.  I found it super easy to work with.  Just make sure all of your rolls are the same lot number.  I ripped up the wall to wall carpeting to reveal the hardwood floors beneath.  But the room still bothered me.  


I finally realized what needed to be done.  It was hard to pull the trigger, but I painted the furniture and replaced the iron bed with an upholstered bed.  
Painting the furniture made all the difference.  


There are a few projects in this room that I will blog about later, including painting the lampshade you see on the sewing table.  The sewing table is "new".  My best friend's father passed away and I was helping her clean out her childhood home.  She asked me a few days later if I had seen anything I might want.  This desk had caught my eye.   The desk is another project I will blog about in the coming weeks as well.  The new bedside lamps are from home goods.  They were basic lamps that I added ribbon to for a more custom look.


The drapes were changed out about a year ago in my effort to make the room come together.  Now they actually completely pull the room together.  You can see in the background a sneak peek into the bathroom makeover as well.

What a huge difference!

Can't wait to hear what you think.
