My seaside beach cottage.
This is the inspiration bed for my bedroom. I love it. Rose Garden Queen Poster Bed
I have already found a lady selling one very similar., with a bureaux and a wardrobe and it is all from the 1920's. I am thrilled, and cannot wait to get it all together. The blanket fabric will have to be more in line with something I saw on a coastal living magazine. I will post a picture of the inspiration quilt on the magazine. I want my quilt to be a little more in the shabby chic style. Later I will post what I have found.
and the final room when it is done. Oh and I found some awesome lamps at Home Goods (my favorite place) that have spindles very similar to the bed spindles, with shabby chic shades! yippie...

Sometimes a little fabric and new paint can totally transform a room. I think the room below is one of those examples.
taupe walls, traditional dining room table and natural, bamboo roll up shades  Even if the table had not been replaced, you can see what a difference the chosen paint and luxurious fabric for the drapes, have made. It doesn't hurt that the chair seats have been replaced with some spicey updated fabrics!

pale, steel gray walls in the dining room with floor to ceiling cream shades (and a round dining room table and chairs) 

Transform something with fabric!
