The shutters are original to the house and much loved - they were most definitely staying. The daybed is from IKEA and the birdcage light fixture (no longer available) is from Urban Outfitters. The quilt, which conveniently reverses to an orange that matches the paper, is from Garnet Hill (colorway no longer available). The Pine Cone Hill euro pillow was on clearance at TJ Maxx for $7. I've had the large basket for years, it used to hold bolts of fabric in my home store.
The bedside table was a deal-io from West Elm, and I picked up the table lamp today from Home Depot. No, seriously. The clock is from Tar-zhay, and the frames are from my home store.
A ruffled curtain from Urban Outfitters replaces a hideous folding metal louvered door. The thing-y hanging to the left is decorative beaded string of fabric elephants from World Market.
So we can't really have a Before & After without the "before." This is the room the day we first toured the house. Too lovely for words, huh?
We started by
carefully removing ripping off the wallpaper with abandon and glee. The ceiling was painted Benjamin Moore's "Vine Green" and the trim is BM's "Morning Dew."
The first few strips of Suzy Hoodless' "Rosabella" for Osborne & Little go up.
We ran a couple of rolls short which was hella frustrating. When I tried to order more, I was informed the UK distributor was no longer shipping to the States. Trying my best not to have a break down, I blogged about my predicament and a real live British knight in shining armor, Griffo68 from Obsessilicious, came to my rescue. He ordered the two rolls for me from his local decorating shop (they even matched the dye lot!) and shipped them over. MY HERO!
This project took longer than I could ever have imagined, but it's finally wrapped up and The Pea adores her room. She should what with all that sweat equity she put in.
