Well...I suppose I'm about done.
There isn't much space left and my budget is about shot...
But I wanted to share s a few of the unique things that make this space interesting. The first item is this great curly willow table.
I have my blogging friend Steve to thank....thanks Steve!
You can read Steve's amazing and creative blog here. He is renovating a historic cottage in Boston and every post is wonderful...you will love it!
The red Chinoise lamp shade ties the colors together from other items in the room. I'm really not a red person but for what ever reason I have used red throughout this project and I really like it.
The original inspiration for the color palette
came from vintage Navajo weavings and rugs
The grey and red are wonderful together and it seems to disguise the beige and yet work with it too.
The vintage coffee table trunk is covered in a pumpkin colored canvas.
I had a similar trunk that I sold with our house and I loved it...so I was surprised when I found a couple more . I like the rope handles too
The zebra rug is brown instead of the usual black and the woven jute rug I got at Overstock.com for about $200 dollars! It is the perfect rug for layering with other rugs and it is really soft.
You can find it here
This is the metal chaise with some vintage pillows and french textiles.
One of the nice surprises about this space is the sun light..it just pours through the doors and reflects off of the bay to the South. I took off the big shutters and used simple unlined linen for some privacy but we mostly keep the drapery open.
This tall stool is an old sculptures stool and is covered in drips and splats....great patina!
A vintage Swiss Army blanket for a throw
More of the usual suspects...buckets
I loaded this old shopping cart with vintage french baguette bakery baskets
And of course my new collection of shovels...weird I know!
So I'm done
I probably will search for some vintage signs or maybe breakdown and purchase a wonderful Navajo rug...they are so pricey I haven't had the guts yet!
Note to self....get some guts!
