Hi everyone! A few months ago I found this red ticking bedskirt at Goodwill.
It was at about the same time that I decided that I didn’t really like my Blue Toile Room!
I don’t know what it is but, I love seeing blue and white in other people’s homes. LOVE IT! Tried to do it in my home and never really liked it that much. Same with those rooms that are just shades of white. Love them, every time I try to do anything all white I always wind up adding some color!
So I thought I’d just add the red bedskirt and pair the blue toile comforter with it. I figure it can be blue and red from now on. Then I remembered I had this!
The bedspread is a vintage one that looks almost like Redwork except instead of the red being stitching it’s chenille. I’ve had this for a long long time!
The Redwork "Goodnight" pillow is one I ordered from Mary Jane's Farm Store also many years ago (when I had money to blow on such things – I wouldn’t spend that kind of money now).
I got the pretty white pillow sham at a thrift store in town (actually got two shams – the smaller one I use on my chaise in the Screened Porch).
This blue toile planter is also from Goodwill.
The lamp I’ve had forever - it may have been from Target. I added the brooches and pearls.
The print on the top and the one to right are from....you guessed it...thrift stores.
The one with the birds sitting on a fence is a Paul De Longpre. He’s more know for his floral paintings so I was thrilled to find this one.
The headboard is from the thrift store as is the blue mirror (which I painted blue) and the frame around the “Dream” art piece. The window is a salvage find.
I’m so much happier with this room now that there’s some red in it! All thanks to my $2.52 Goodwill dustruffle!
I think this is just the beginning! I think red and blue toile pillows on the bed would be a nice addition and something I can make myself. Maybe a red or blue shade for the lamp?
So many projects so little time!
Thanks for coming by today! Have a great week!
