My Perfect Bedroom

July 12, 2011 at 2:09 pm (Inspiration) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

On Apartment Therapy today I saw this gorgeous black and white chair by Ethan Allen.  First I drooled (we all know how much I love black and white furnishings, right?) and then I headed over to the Ethan Allen website to check out their new lines. 

More drolling ensued.  Before long I had picked out what my perfect bedroom in the new house should look like. 

The master bedroom in our new 1891 house is through a walk-through closet (very cool!) and is then sunken below a couple of steps.  There are raw beams overhead, and even a little stained glass window on the wall with a peak.  Yes, its very neat. 

So, this Ethan Allen room that I spotted had my mind combining my love of shiny black furniture, black and white prints, and raw, rustic wood features.  Here she is:

 

Gorgeous, no?  Actually, the Ethan Allen website had a ton of beautiful images, ideas, and products! Check out more of the line here: http://www.ethanallen.com/shop_by_room/bedrooms

New Little Project

I love finding odds and ends to fix up, remodel, or work on that I can then add to our home.  These little projetcs are fun for me and keep me busy.  This new task is a stool from my grandmother.  Its not new, not antique, not anything special really.  I almost truned it down.  But, she said that it opened up.  That caught my interest.  Then, she suggested that maybe I could keep some interesting photos in it.  BINGO!  I snatched it up in a hurry.  I love a bit of unexpected, and her idea of putting snapshots in the stool was perfect.  I plan to recover the top with some funky material.  I’m not sure if I will paint it yet.  Then I will add some old, random photos to the inside for company to explore.  Cute!  Any suggestions on print or paint?  Let me know what you think! 

 

So much potential...
