One of the best spaces to experiment with color and pattern combinations is in the kid’s rooms. These fabrics were used in Carol’s “grandkid’s” space to create a fun and color-filled space for her grandkids to play and sleep.
Orange and pink paisley, same fabric-different colors, were the starting point for the window treatment and pillows for this bunk-like room where grandaughters spend the night.
The original curtains were the Bosphorus Toile panels. We only had 2 curtain panels to use between 2 windows so we added the valance to create an entirely new look. We chose a brown & black animal print called Cheetah, a red velvet & green chenille to complement the toile.
One of my goals this holiday season was to take a family picture I could use for Christmas cards. I had a few options from throughout the year but I wanted one from the holidays. So I waited. We had four occasions where we were all together with most of us dressed up but..no picture.
Finally…the day after Christmas when everyone came over for breakfast, it happened. Some were in pajamas, some in sweats, some in a variety of I’m-staying-home (me) I’m-not-going-anywhere clothes…but I got my photo. Not sure why my hair looks red…but I got my pic.
So this year’s Christmas cards (first one in several years) were mailed out on the 29th.
Better late than not at all.
To close out the year I’ve gather a few favorites to take another look at.
