This is my dining room right now. Loaded with stuff I've accumulated and am now selling on Craig's List. I think my husband is a bit horrified, as I had a lot of it tucked away where he couldn't see it. Occupational hazard I call it. Totally embarrassing!
And this is my son's room. I'm hoping making this public might shame him into cleaning it. I can keep dreaming, right? At least you can see that decorators' homes are no different from yours most days.
And this is my guest room. Guess what? I'm changing it!! If you read this blog often, you're probably not shocked by that revelation :)

Here it was a few weeks ago:
When my mom moved to the nursing home recently, she needed a bed. I knew the one I had was very much her style (traditional), so we moved it there and I got a new bed. This one:
I love the color and the detailing on the fabric (tone on tone circles), and the nail heads. I got the bedding and pillows at Home Goods (a.k.a. Home Gods) yesterday.
But my favorite item from HG is the dresser that I am using as a side table:
It was an amazing price and I love it.
An electrician is coming Thursday to install a chandelier that has been sitting in a box in my closet for three years (I know, I know. Crazy).
I am either going to paint very light gray (Ben Moore Classic Gray maybe?) or a very light beige (probably Revere Pewter). Any thoughts?
The rug is ordered from OKL:
I will add black lamps and a foot of the bed bench (or two small ones).
Also, probably three small round mirrors over the bed:
Please ignore the green paint - it wrecks the whole room, but I'm trusting that you can see past it and envision the room all gray and black and white! I'll also change the super traditional end table - love it, but it doesn't really go with the room anymore. Oh, and I'll iron that duvet cover (sure I will).
Then I just have to figure out the huge wall to the right. Maybe a black and white canvas collage of places we have lived and travelled to...
So how's that for a random, disjointed post!?
Happy Monday everyone!
You won't regret it :)
