Things Remembered

Farmhouse Bedroom

The Arcade swung open it’s doors last Monday and the crowds were waiting with baited breath.  The September round is filled with a great deal of home decor, which makes me very excited.  Any excuse to change my home over and design with different themes only strengthens my design ability.  When I first saw the Apple Fall Mayfair collection, I thought European Country, then I loved the Scarlet Creative Meribel group rethinking the pieces into a Farmhouse luxury romantic bedroom. Thanks to the generosity of some of my friends and yard sales, I was able to create my country girlie retreat, complete with a miniature dollhouse, tea time lounge spot, Victorian perfume bottles, and a cozy love seat.  Key to the farmhouse style is reclaimed wood, exposed beams, scrap wood floors, and special pieces. Turning the farmhouse into a luxury suite, I layered antiques and textures blending the furniture styles with colors in the rugs to create a story and unique lifestyle. Hope you enjoy!
