Home Sweet Home

Ok, so the place isn't ready for a full-on photo shoot yet, but I thought I would tease you with a few pictures of my almost finished bedroom . . .

The inspiration for my room came from 3 things: my antique dresser set, the fabric I found in Arizona which you see on the euro pillows, and the awesome Banana leaf headboard I found on sale for $99. I love the way everything is coming together. I feel like my style in this room is a little bit Urban Gardener. I know, thats totally a made-up style, but there's this great flower shop in Newport called The Urban Gardener and I wish I could move in.

Everything else in the space is filled with things I just adore. Design books, my mirrored frames, a gardenia candle holder, my white ceramic pottery, potted succulents, a beautiful hand-me-down lamp from my Mom, and my jewelry boxes I have been collecting over the years. I'm also obviously obsessed with plants. I call them my foliage. They make the space, well, more urban garden-ish.

The room still needs a few more things before I can sit back and relax. I want a new chair for the desk; something more soft and cozy. Oh, and a new desktop computer. I covet my Mac at work and need one so badly! I'm also awaiting some cream and brown leopard fabric for the two pillows on the end of the bed, and I still haven't bought my drafting table for the corner by the window. All in due course.

Well, I hope you like it. Its a work in progress. I'll post pictures of the bathroom next . . .
