My New Vintage Bedroom

Some of you may remember my post awhile back where I said I was going to redecorate my bedroom. Well, if you do, nothing you are about to see goes along with the French theme I had planned! I found a bedspread that I just fell in love with and it led me in a completely different direction.....something I call New Vintage. See what you think...... I just love my new pillows! The one in the center was made by Andrea of Faded Plains using vintage barkcloth fabric and an feather pillow insert. On each side are my gorgeous tuffets made by Sharon the Tuffet Queen at C'est Chouette.

I had new "cushy" carpet put in so that gave me a reason to move everything out of the bedroom and get rid of a lot of the clutter.

I brought the faux fireplace home from the cottage shop and put it in the little alcove in my bedroom which adds a little coziness for those winter nights that will soon be here. That gave me a chance to display the pretty McCoy flower vases on the mantel. I also brought the vintage guardian angel picture home from Cozy Cottage (sorry for the glare...I'll try to get a better picture later). If you look closely you will see some of the pretty glittered flowers that Francie of The Scented Cottage creates, and the lovely tussie that I purchased from Carrie of Noelle Garrett Designs. Last but not least are my "new" curtains. I bought them from a friend locally who is one of the most creative people I know.....she tea-dyed the sheer embroidered under panels which adds a nice vintage touch. This is my new girlie den and I just love it!

oooh la la...that is much better than a French bedroom IMHO.

What a beautiful sanctuary !
