Favorite Client...My Mother

Ten years ago Gary and I had the privilege to help my Mother when she moved into her new home in Alexandria, Louisiana painting and decorating.  Some spaces have been along overdue for some makeover love.  We were happy to squeeze in enough time on a recent visit to add a fresh touch to her bedroom.  Coupled with her beautiful bedroom set she already owned, we added a fresh coat of paint, bedding and used her existing accessories.


Our inspiration:  Macy's bed in a bag selection, featuring deep teal, 
brown and a touch of deep peach.


Sherwin Williams' Sea Salt color proved to be the perfect palette for this space.



It was a great farewell to say good-bye to this border.  Removing it and adding paint from floor to ceiling made a huge difference in the feel of this space adding height. 


We captured a few shots once removing all former decor, bedding, etc. and was playing around with some space planning ideas.


Already looking better with the border gone.




After:



The trunks in the before shot were never in room before but was looking for a home due to some other space changes.  We opted to trade them out for an old chest from the sewing room.





The blue vase was a new purchase...one of my favorites as it adds the punch of color needed 
and I love the little sparkle it brings. 


Final layering will include 2 more purchases after editing a recent shopping trip to Marshalls.  We purchased the one vase and plan to also get the pillow and yellow throw.  You can see the valance laying at the surface we brought to shop with.  Love the pillow!


The pillow will go in front of the shams on the bed and the throw across the bottom corner of the bed.


And, here is the happy client, my Mother.  Some of my shopping choices included a bit of rustic flare, but once getting to the bottom of my Mother's true style aesthetics, she loves the very classy traditional polished look, much like who she really is.  Again, your home indeed reflects you as a a person and should always be a part of you and make you feel "at home" in a space that is a reflection of you.


Here is something you may enjoy on HGTV's blog in reference to using botanical pillows.  Pic soon to follow with the purchases in this setting.
