For the next installment of my home tour, I’d like to share a few of the upstairs rooms with you. Come on up!
This is the first bedroom. I call it the “blue bedroom” because of, naturally, all the blue accents.
I purchased that little bow-front dresser here in town, at a local antiques shop called Antiques by the Yard. I love its simple, graceful profile.
Here you can get a little better sense of the layout. Still pretty spartan, but it’s getting there, slowly but surely…
Window treatments. (Details can be found here.)
A painting that I still need to frame and hang. I think it’s going to look really lovely in this room.
And here are a couple photos of the other bedroom. This room used to have bright pink walls and purple trim. I tried to make it more grown-up and sophisticated with a darker brown, but I’m thinking I’d like to go a little lighter with the color in here eventually (sorry for the dark photos!). What do you think? Keep it dark (and cozy), or brighten it up (maybe it needs an injection of cheer)? I’m having a hard time committing!
I have curtains that are waiting to be hung, but I still need window hardware for this room. It’s a work in progress…
A litho, by my mom, adds interest and texture, and a little mystery too (who doesn’t love a Venetian lady with a large hat?).
A parting shot of the upstairs hallway. The work on the wall, the three nudes, is a pastel that I did ages ago…
Another one of my mom’s early works. This hallway is shaping up to be a veritable gallery space!
I hope you enjoyed this little glimpse of the upstairs guest rooms. I hope to be back with more later this week. Until then, I bid you adieu for now and wish you a lovely week.
