Have you ever wondered how we functioned with out our digital cameras? iPhones or iPads? As much as I love these things, and have no desire to work without them, I often miss the days of film.
When my kids were little I took pictures of them ALL the time. Every time I had a roll of film developed I printed double copies. Sometimes triples. Grandmothers, Great-grandmothers, Aunts, Uncles…they all received frequent copies of my kids. All my frames had updated pictures. I was sooo organized.
Something happened when the world went digital. Or it could be a combination of digital photography and my age but I’m not near as organized now as I used to be.
Case in point.
Look what I found! Pics of an adorable little girl’s room I took during the 2012 Parade of Homes.
Over a year ago!
Since I’ve always adhered to the philosophy of Better Late Than Never…
Just look at all the inspiration & ideas in this room.
Ruffled Bed Throw – This is the first thing that caught my eye in this room. I LOVE this idea as well as the idea of using a wide variety of fabrics. I’m not terribly fond of all the fabrics they used but I adore the idea.
I’ve seen this throw made using a body pillow or a thin layer of batting as the insert or leaving it flat. You would probably call this a faux throw. It’s more for looks but it could definitely be made larger to be functional as well as decorative.
Striped Painted Walls – Striped walls are always fun. This time the stripe was achieved by painting every other stripe with a shiney, clear glaze.
Bedskirt Trim – Adding a touch of trim along the lower edge of the bedskirt.
Appliqued Pillow – Probably the second thing that caught my eye. Not a new concept by a long shot but I loved the simplicity of this sweet little pillow. Definitely want to try this.
Adding Trim to Sheets – I’ve done this several times with my girls. Take sim& pillowcases and customize them with ribbon.
Color Banded Shades – I’ve made similar loose fold roman shades with the ruffles and trim along the lower edge but I like the idea of adding a band of color along the sides.
Ruffled Pillows – How could someone who likes ruffles as much as I do not be inspired by these cuties!?! So fun!
Ruffled Shower Curtain – Even the shower curtain receive special ruffle attention. Notice how they only applied the trim to every other ruffle. Smart was to add detail but save a bit of money as well.
I love finding unexpected inspiration! Even if it was hidden in the depths of my computer. 🙂
Now, if I only had time to play with these ideas! Maybe in January.
Any of these ideas spark a project idea for you?
