When fresh new paint, lovely curtain material and hooked rugs come together, it means inspiration for me! I'll back up and explain.
Two of my dear friends actually enjoy painting rooms! They are efficient, dependable, problem solvers, have a great color sense, and they make the work fun.
My bedroom, I'm embarrassed to report, had not been repainted in two decades. The old curtains that were in my bedroom, were made by my mom, originally for our living room. However, my mom has been gone over 15 years. These curtains were showing signs of wear and tear. It was time for an update!
As luck would have it, one of my painting buddies was getting rid of five panels of Ralph Lauren drapery and upholstery weight fabric. It has a soft grey-blue background with bouquets of mauve pinks, creams, and yellows. Perfect fabric for my new curtains!
The newly painted room feels so peaceful. I have rediscovered the furniture that has been in there for years. I'm playing with what rug goes where, and with which keepsakes.
I haven't finished with the decorating yet, but here's to a good start and a salute to new paint, dreamy floral curtains, hooked rugs and best of all, good friends!
