Bloom where you are planted....








Gone are the peachy walls....the pine ceiling has been washed in a soft grey tone....new baseboards and trim look fresh and clean...the brick wall has been treated to fresh paint as well....the hard and not so comfortable wicker love seat has a new home on the deck.....my Jeanne d'arc curtains(an amazing gift from Tracey) look right at home now as do the nordic french pillows(one from Tracey and the other from Andrea's shop)...my new coffee table a gift from Jess and Meg looks like it has always been here......and of course my beautiful gift from Shannon,my ROI-SOLEIL picture is a real focal point. John worked so hard on this room,he knew I always wanted it to be special.....I think I am a very lucky girl... hope you like it!Thanks as always for coming by! x0x0

Oh! Crissy, it was totally worth the wait! Every bit of it is lovely - you have this look down perfectly. I love the dark floors with all the white. It has such a worn and well loved feel to it - it really should be in a magazine! I loved this room before but it's amazing now ~

I LOVE it!!!!! It has such lovely soothing colors and all the textures keep it looking really interesting. I am trying to acheive a similar look in my guest room and it has not been easy for me. Your room is wonderful inspiration!

Ah yes it is so pretty. Is your white Ikea sofa new? We just bought new slipcovers for ours(because the others were four years old and dirt was not coming out)...looks so fresh and new again! I have the same big white shell, I think...and a similar dark brown wicker coffee table...in our garden gazebo! That crown picture really adds so much to the room...and I like how you hung it off center and low. I hang art low too...so many people hang art too high. Lovely as always.

Hi Chrissy,
I was scrolling through the comments because I was sure I commented on this post of yours...but I guess I didn't! Well I sure drooled over it!

Just wanted to thank you for the super sweet comment you left on my ruffles & lilacs post! You are so adorable & wouldn't we have quite the time living next to each other??? :)

Your home just looks amazing....seriously, I love it. I love the ceiling, the chandy & of course all of your beautiful accessorizing.

Take care!
