Leaving Newark and coming to the quaint southern town has been a rewarding decision for Bernie. Ever since we finished her boudoir, we’ve been busying ourselves getting her warm humble abode ready before the holidays approach and I have to admit this has been one fun project. It’s time for another reveal at her new southern home. In a collaborated effort we accomplished the look she was desiring to sit back, relax and enjoy the view while watching TV, reading a book or just watering her plants. This room offered plenty of sunlight so we took advantage of it to give her green babies a wonderful glow. The room started with bland wood paneled walls but it did have great hardwood flooring. To alleviate taking down the panels, she decided to paint over it using a warm navy blue which was a excellent choice of color. From there we let our decorative minds flow. Of course we scoured estate sales, thrift stores, auctions and we hit a furniture outlet (only for the sectional)to decorate the space. Let’s take a look where we started (excluding the items left by the previous owner):
This is the new look of her sunny room with a view:
By using pieces she already had along with new and thrifted items this room looks absolutely wonderful.
I love working with different fabrics and so I chose custom drapery and pillows to pull the look together.
This chair received a new look by painting it metallic silver and giving it a new seat cushion to match the pillows
Her hand-carved wooden man has been with her for over 20+years and stands in a corner watching over items while catching sun-rays (isn’t he just the coolest?!)
The custom framed pair of HighPoint pineapple prints were Goodwill finds for $12.00 (they still had the tag on them marked $99 – great score) to match her pineapple theme around the room
She’s a collector of piggy banks and this “when pigs fly” is perfect to sit by the doorway corner.
All around the room you’ll see little hints of collectibles mixed in with her green babies.
And resting on the table is her book of remembrance of home
We can officially check this room off the “to-do” list and move on to the next.. which is the big Kitchen reveal..I hope you enjoyed this room makeover and if so, let us know – We love hearing your feedback. Remember, if you’re wanting a new look – and need some advice – I’d love to help. Until next time – happy hunting while you thrift your house into a home!
