Home is a Haven
A Paris Party
Dan kibitzing here – Debra and a couple of her friends are planning a girls’ trip to Paris in the fall. She threw them a little Paris party on Sunday with decor apropos to the occasion
and food to lift the spirits with a bit of French flair:
Hildring House – Home is a Haven
At Hildring House, the master bedroom renovation continues…. This space, in particular, is essential for rejuvenation, rest, and self care.
I posted a photo of the room when we bought the house in an earlier post (you can find that here) and I’ve taken photos of the current situation … but they’re so bad that I can’t bring myself to post them until I have some pretty “afters” to show! So…
Isn’t this room calm? Love the layered window treatment and the symmetry.
Do you see a theme developing here? 🙂
It should also have some pink in it …
Hildring House Master Storage
Since the room is so small, the space for furniture is limited, and Mr WTB really needs ALL the storage (okay, I confess, I do take up more than my share of space but if your home is a haven …), I’m going to need to get creative here….
I considered IKEA. I’ve seen some great hacks (like the ones below) but I tried a couple in the store and I didn’t like the feel of the drawers. These pieces will get heavy use and I want something that opens smoothly for a long time (have I mentioned that we are supposed to stay in this house for while?)
We currently have this rug –
which was moved from the guest room at the SoMoToHo, (and which you see below)
I loved it there, but it’s not doing anything for me in this room. It’s a great neutral rug, so I’ll keep it for staging.
I expect the big dresser will need to find a new home. It’s super heavy (WAY out of proportion to its size) so not an option for staging (thank you). I’ll probably keep the cute West Elm piece; it will work in lots of places.
