A new view

blog pictures 026

I thought I’d share what my room looks like at my dads house since you all are always seeing my moms :) I haven’t really done anything with it and everything isn’t put away. But I’m hardly ever there so it’s not imperative.

That is my bed, it’s a California King so it overtakes the room. The bed spread is the Waverly collection from Target! Black and crème toile :) I wanted a four poster bed so bad and my stepmom bought me a cherry wood bedroom set for my 15th birthday :)

So that’s pretty much it for stuff. There’s also a cherry wood oval standing mirror in the corner. I have a lot more French stuff that is still in boxes from when they moved. As you can see the room at my dads is a lot different in style than the one at my moms :) It’s always been that way. It’s nice to have two rooms to decorate in different styles that I like but don’t always mesh well. All the best everyone!

You have pretty things there as well, it must be nice to have two different spaces, makes for twice the shopping. Do any of your new treasures fit in there?

Happy PS and have a great weekend Alli!!!

Morning Alli,

I am in love with your toile bed set! It looks so elegant :) This is the last weekend for the Renaissance faire and I didn't make it out this year, (we were supposed to go this weekend but my toes said otherwise) at an rate, I will be looking for a rose like that next year!

Have a great weekend,
Dena

Hi Allison :)

How wonderful to have two rooms decorated so beautifully! I love your bed :)

Oh and honey, give your man some time. Eventually he'll get older and probably be more like that. Men get better with age ;)

xo,

Hey girl.
Thanks for coming by.
The white table you saw like my table, how much was it? Do you remember?

Thought I'd paint the cabinet gloss black.
What do you think??

Your bedroom is awesome!! Very nice furniture!!

Blessings and have a great week.

Love the Eiffel Tower lamps! I regret not buying one when Target had them. :(

The toile bedding looks so pretty with your furniture - you did a great job!
