Never did post it though. I could just hear it -- paint the furniture white, edit, too much clutter (I am a huge fan of clutter by the way), remove the fake flowers, hang the picture over the bed lower. You know, I realize all of that would be the "correct" thing to do, but this is my room and I love it like it is.
Believe it or not, I actually did "edit" a little before taking the pics. I still have the stuff I love on the dresser. Here is a peek at the dresser scarf I got for $3 at the antique shop last weekend! My perfume sits on a plate with a picture of Paris on it.
I know the styles are completely different, but the flowers and the candle were a housewarming gift from my brother and his wife, and every time I see them, I smile. The book is from the Musee D'Orsay in Paris. I left the price on there because I like seeing a tag that says "francs," especially since they have since gone to Euros. The dish is supposed to be depression glass in the Madrid pattern, but some of it is fake. The bowl itself might be real, but the piece as a whole is not authentic. A candlestick is glued to the bottom, and I suspect the lid is fake. I am too embarrassed to say how much I paid for it on eBay! Buyer beware!
I love the embroidered tray. Not sure how old it is, but it appears VERY old. There's my postcard holder with a romantic postcard. I love Country Living magazine, and that was my favorite cover from the past year. Finally, I have a lavender-vanilla candle that still gives off quite a bit of scent. Its the first thing I smell when I walk in the door.
This is why I love fake flowers. It looks so pretty!
I still drool over all the beautiful homes on RMS that have gorgeous, perfect bedrooms that look like they belong in a high end hotel room, but they just aren't me. Everything in my room has a story or is precious to me in some way...and I wouldn't have it any other way.
