Great Ideas!

I love this room. I've seen it posted many times on different blogs (wish I knew which one I borrowed this from.) Don't you just love the way the door on the right is painted? I also love the gathered skirt, embroidered monogrammed pillows...beautiful. There is just something so appealing about linen fabric.

I will have an extra fireplace surround as soon as we start our new addition. I wonder if it will be wide enough for a queen size bed because I think I want to give this headboard a try. Anyone know how to do that paint finish?

Love this ruffled pillow. Umm, I really should label my pictures so I can give credit where credit is due.

I love this old world look. Check this out from the Graphics Fairy for a tutorial on how to make French inspired linens. I love the Graphics Fairy site. She is so nice to give away free PDF files and post other people's projects using her graphics.

I've decided to start making posts of things I love. That way I can find them easier when I'm looking for inspiration. I guess I better start labeling my inspiration pictures when I save them.

That room is beautiful! If your fireplace isn't wide enough, would you maybe be able to widen it with trim? As for the door, from here, it looks like it's just an antiqued finish. Paint with a base color (looks like maybe a blue-gray?) and then antique with a warm brown color? Or is my monitor deceiving me???

I love that you share pictures of wonderful things you find and see. We got a new bedroom set (finally got a king size bed after 39 years in a queen! It's amazing what letting a little dog sleep with you can do) I now need to find a comforter and shams, etc. that will not cost a fortune.
