Last year, since y'all were all in addition to then form to ask, I promised many of my Facebook in addition to Eye for Design friends in addition to followers that I would present some pictures of my ain home. You create got seen weblog posts on my living room, dining room, hall in addition to kitchen. That leaves the household unit of measurement room in addition to the primary chamber suite which includes my office. The 2 bedrooms upstairs became my husband's human being cave since our boy moved out. Although he has it truly overnice it won't live on the tour. I create got non taken the fourth dimension to create got job solid pictures for almost a year, in addition to then inwards fellowship to fulfill my hope I idea I would become ahead in addition to characteristic the chamber starting fourth dimension in addition to sometime earlier the terminate of the twelvemonth I'll larn exactly about to the household unit of measurement room.
I idea it would live easier to include the bath in addition to my purpose since they are truly part of the chamber suite. The chamber is eclectic onetime globe inwards manner somewhere inwards betwixt classic in addition to province manor. There are French influences equally good equally Neo-classical, in addition to English. I create got plans in addition to projects ahead that volition contestation things to a greater extent than to the French side. Will update equally I complete projects, but for now, this is it. I hope y'all enjoy.
Looking into the chamber from the door leading outside. This room is painted inwards a soft blush note that is difficult to photograph in addition to changes color depending on the fourth dimension of day. The truest color volition live what y'all meet on the lower parts of the walls where the golden incandescent lighting doesn't interfere. I painted this onetime desk nigh xv years ago. The 4 poster was handmade past times a human being inwards Lexington in addition to I create got had it through my 80's primitive colonial stage, through English linguistic communication in addition to right away into to a greater extent than Old World. My conception is to plough it into a lit à la polonaise manner bed in addition to am looking for a coronet. Influenza A virus subtype H5N1 projection for when my dorsum gets better!!
I am in addition to then fortunate to create got this non bad window topographic point inwards the bedroom. It's i of the things that sold me on this onetime house. That in addition to the 12 human foot ceilings. The onetime wool tapestry came from an auction inwards northern Kentucky in addition to is manus appliqued. It is inwards soft muted colors on a nighttime greenish background that exactly practise non present upwards good inwards the photographic telly camera light. I am planning to alter the window handling presently to something that enhances the hanging.......so many projects, likewise petty time.
I dearest antique textiles, specially those that are manus made. I endeavour in addition to purchase whatsoever that I uncovering at prices that don't interruption the bank. There are in addition to then many places y'all tin utilization them to give your dwelling job solid an onetime globe feel.
Here is a closer moving paradigm in addition to y'all tin meet the colors a fleck better.
You tin meet the applique operate in addition to manus stitches meliorate here.
Just a petty vignette inwards the infinite inwards betwixt rooms. I collect onetime household unit of measurement crests.......any advert volition do!
Looking through the bed into my office. This room has v doors, a fireplace, in addition to a window box which makes it difficult to come upwards up amongst wall infinite for another pieces I want........like an armoire.
You become through this steal door into my office.
This surface area is a combination of French in addition to Neo-classical. I dearest reliefs, Greek telephone substitution patterns, in addition to other classical elements in addition to intend they operate good amongst French furniture.
My desk is a large trestle manner amongst carved legs in addition to feet that y'all can't truly meet inwards these pictures. I constitute an onetime scout makers cabinet that sits on top of it. The French proper name upwards was a birthday introduce from Tim. The French girandoles were constitute inwards a vintage automobile parts junk yard. They were apart in addition to inwards a box.....for $50.00. There is a storey similar that behind everything I have. God leads me to some incredible finds!!!
I want y'all could meet the scout cabinet better.....all these petty drawers in addition to slots. The slice at correct was made past times my non bad granddad in addition to I create got considered paradigm it but exactly don't create got the heart. Above the desk is an antique needlepoint moving paradigm of a immature French falconer. Influenza A virus subtype H5N1 treasured gift from a friend inwards French Republic is displayed inwards the cloche.
This room is prettier if y'all are truly standing inwards it. It's non that large in addition to then it is difficult to photograph to larn total views. The panels were onetime Chinoiserie panels that I painted in addition to stenciled amongst articulation chemical compound for a raised Venetian plaster look. This window is i I continue shuttered in addition to then I also covered it amongst a tapestry in addition to framed antique French needlepoint topographic point cover........pretty muted pastel colors that i time again exactly don't present upwards well.
The petty antique bench is where y'all volition commonly uncovering a sleeping cat. Sophie, Chanel, in addition to Buddy similar to relax hither spell I am Facebooking or working on a blog. The onetime pillows are petitpoint in addition to are of French chateaux. I am in all probability going to pigment the slant top desk cream equally a wintertime project.
The closer the photographic telly camera the to a greater extent than color y'all tin see. There is alot to a greater extent than bluish but exactly doesn't present upwards good no affair what I do.
I create got several crystal chandeliers throughout the job solid in addition to wanted something dissimilar but similar to become inwards my office. I looked for over a twelvemonth for i of these antique Italian vine chandeliers. The crystals tally into metallic buds in addition to then it looks similar they are blooming. Found it finally in addition to the cost was RIGHT. Tim did create got to rewire the sockets equally they were Italian in addition to did non tally our bulbs.
This twelvemonth I purchased this large onetime unframed crude oil on canvass that truly impacts the room. Hard to tell hither that she is lx inches tall. My vision was to set an antique French daybed hither underneath it. However, my dorsum dictates that it does non desire to become upwards in addition to downwards basement stairs to launder clothes. So the washer in addition to dryer right away sit down hither instead. Dream has been set on concur until nosotros tin convert a covered porch to a mudroom. People state to await on the brilliant side though an encompass what a pretty laundry room I have.
View from purpose into chamber that shows the French screens on either side of the bed. It truly has 4 panels but I create got them dissever in addition to folded for now.
I create got tried to alter the photographic telly camera setting in addition to then the colors are a fleck truer fifty-fifty though now the greenish is weird. The screens are truly covered inwards blues, greens, in addition to deep reds on a cream background. Also blues inwards the needlepoint pillows.
Looking through door leading to the hall.
Another of the MANY doors. This i leads to the bathroom.
I create got to tell the storey of the mantle. There is an onetime lady inwards town that nosotros assist from fourth dimension to fourth dimension when she comes past times needing nutrient or another assistance. She has a roof over her caput but no electricity, H2O etc. in addition to won't become anywhere else. She is a hoarder equally well.......like on TV. One solar daytime this huge human being shows upwards inwards a truck, knocks on the door in addition to says "Deborah wants y'all to create got this". I didn't fence amongst him. Where it came from I don't know. Anyway it went perfect inwards my bath in addition to I am glad to create got it.
I volition eventually practise something dissimilar underneath it. Without the photographic telly camera flash y'all don't meet the stripes in addition to then it does await better. Just French script showing.
The crystal chandelier in addition to sconces launder out the green, deep reds, in addition to blues inwards the pictures in addition to the acanthus leafage boarder nether the leopard print. However without them on it is likewise dark.
I turned off the sconces but it nevertheless didn't help. There is a pretty petty French demilune tabular array amongst painted flowers on it that exactly doesn't present up.
I dearest lidded garden urns! The blood-red y'all meet inwards the step good runs through all these rooms but for some argue it shows upwards good hither but nowhere else.
Looking downwards the hall.
Usually Chanel or Sophie are the ones interested inwards getting their pictures taken but today Buddy wanted inwards on the act. He turned upwards at the terminate to state good-by.
