|I happen to have unusually high ceilings|
and large furniture and the space behind the bed
just didn't look right....Because of the shape of the
headboard I thought pictures was just not the way to go...
|I started by putting some color on the bed|
I love the color red...
and the room has bits and pieces of yellow..
Sort of French Nautical....
So to the blues....I added the above...
I have a thing for Lobsters....
I guess that's fine but in the bedroom???
I have loved lobsters in decorating ever since taking
a trip to Maine with daughter back in 92'
|Why not throw in a little French while we're at it|
I picked up this dish towel for $5.00 at the
Country Living Fair a few years back

I always leave room for add ons....
|Miss Liberty had to be included....|
|And my favorite Place to Visit as a Child....|
Every summer we would end our
Day at AC by getting
Cold Milk and Hot Cinnamon
Donuts at "Mammy's" on
the Boardwalk before heading
back to the beach house...
I can still taste those Hot Donuts.
|Now that looks better!|
|I still might|
a coffee table or maybe
a small trunk in front
of the Sofa...
What do you think?
|it's always fun to move things|
She was in my sewing room
and swam in to the Bedroom
to join us for a little while..
|two Paris souvenirs...|
and now in to
