a work in progress

A few Saturdays ago I woke up at 6:30 in the morning and decided I hated the new room and needed to change it around. It's a very similar setup to my old room, but I just can't sleep well without being near a window. I've been slowly collecting pieces of lace for my windows and the fabric canopy above my bed, it's not finished yet, but it's coming along! I also need to find some antique inspired light bulbs for the ceiling fixture





Today it's been so hot and sticky I've been hiding in here with the air conditioner on and listening to old Duke Ellington songs. (This one is my favorite!)

Oh my gosh your room is amazing! It looks so cozy and inviting. If I had one like it, I'd spend the weekend dreaming away.


Hope you are well!

So Miss Havisham!
(And this is a silly question, but it just sprang to my mind: how will you get rid of the dust on the canopy?)

Oh my!! How amazing it would be to sleep in that room, it looks beautiful already! The lighting in the photos make it look all those more dreamy and romantic. I just love the softness of the lace and the billowy canopy. So charming! And thank you for you sweet comment on my blog <3. Oh I would definitely trade places with you in an instant! I have been to Boston three times and it is just one of my favorite cities!

DREAM BEDROOM. I concur with all the ladies who've already gushed over the splendor of your bedroom nook!

your room is amazing. and Duke Ellington also! me and my father use to dance to him in the kitchen, or, he's trying to teach me to dance but I'm hopeless. ha.

Emma Harrison said...

Oh this is lovely. It looks so warm and cosy and I do love that the bed is to the side of the window, rather than facing away.

Stacey said...

It looks super cozy and enchanting at the same time :)

I'd love to feature your blog in mine... My blog is all about classy modest apparels and of course I just love your sense of style ;)
