My Home: {A White Bedroom}

Recently I shared peeks of a guest bedroom

I painted, and here is another one recently

spruced up (with stuff already owned)

for a special young lady

(fresh from Switzerland and bearing chocolate!)

who is spending the summer here.

The palette?

The usual suspects.

White, grey, and warm golds.

True Feelings Candle Holders

I love my modern textured candleholders on the old dresser.

They have an otherworldly charm and glow so sweetly.

The slipcovered chair is from RH

and is super comfy.

The german grainsack was won from

the gorgeous industrial, primitive, and european

wares shop in Cali owned by Kymberley Fraser:

A Beautiful Mess.*

I’m especially fond of this textile

because…omg, a million reasons:

it features my favorite number (6!),

it is covered with the most fabulous mends,

and because the girl using this space

happens to be an equestrian gal.

It was meant to be.

*The shop in Agoura Hills, CA is launching a new furniture line June 1st!

The large painting is by Aimless Olive

and felt a little too formal in the space

until I lent it some fairy lights

and Sonny Angels.

More quilted white paisley, which I have

owned for close to 20 years now and never tire of.

I don’t have a closeup of the chair under this throw

and pillow, but it is a handmade chair from the

19th century I found at a tag sale.

I reupholstered the comfy, wide seat

years ago with ivory dupioni.

Exhausted from graduation festivities,

I need to slow the pace a bit so I hope

to do some lounging, chocolate eating,

and surfing

of your blogs very soon!

Peace to you right where you are.

    Such a beautiful guest room Michele! The pillows are so fun and a wonderful addition to the white linen bedding. All these graduations!! I'm sure your {after} party was lots of fun:) The family photo is wonderful!

    Look at that gorgeous (you all look like models!) and happy family!

    What someone from Switzerland is moving in? It should really be Sweden!!! (People always mix those countries – wanting to chat chocolate with me on airplanes…)

    Hey, I miss that pretty lynx! Should have grabbed one for myself…

    Necklaces are done! Question for you: Summer celebration/4th of July, Emerald green, or City chic (think Cognac, wink wink)? Take a pick.

    Hugs to you sis.


    P.S Guest room looks lovely!

    Love your peaceful room. And your family photo is so handsome. I hope you rest a bit, we just finished our round of grad parties including our own and I'm finally getting back to blogging. Whew. It's been a whirlwind. Blessings to the new grad.
