On the Way to Wonderful!

It's taken a long time but our second bedroom at the little Coral Cottage has finally been completed!  Jane Coslick has taught me a lot about how to relax and mix colors.  It's more interesting if everything does not match. This bedroom uses white, blue, lime and coral and the combo is very fresh looking.

We hung white grommeted Merete curtains purchased from IKEA.  Then we put white matelasse quilts on the beds. 

Jane found some beautiful bllue pillows at Home Goods and some smaller lime/citron pillows at Target that we used on the beds.

When shopping in Buford, GA at The Queen of Hearts flea market I found this nightstand.  At first I thought we would use it in the sitting area on the sun porch but it seemed to  be meant for this bedroom between the beds.  The lamp was a Target find.

I need to buy some Shabby Chic gathered bed skirts from Target so we can complete the beds. These things along with the coral dresser and the hand-painted window art are all the elements that we settled on to finalize the design.  I'll show you the finished room next time.


  1. Vicky very nice, very impressed!! You've done a fabulous job! A whole different room. I look forward to seeing what is next!

  2. Thanks Becky! I appreciate your encouraging comment.

  3. That is just so sweet! Yes that little table is perfect there. I like that everything isn't all matchy, matchy. Can't wait to see rest of it done.
