100 Down....Still a Work in Progress

Today is a milestone in my blogging, it's my 100th post....I can't believe it, yeah!

Of course I had this really cool blog post done last night on this fine art gallery I stumbled upon, and poof it disappeared.  But in order to get this out by my deadline I am going to have to start a new topic because I am still so mad that the other is GONE!

Oh by the way, these sunset pictures were taken outside of my house last night, after I lost my blog post, so some good happened and I wanted to share them with you.

So to keep things light today, I thought I would show you a job in progress.... It will be finished next week, so you don't have to wait too long to see it....

I NEVER like to show these because most people, even my clients, can't appreciate the "final result" until it's completely done, but maybe you will....Do I dare???

This is my clients master bedroom...LONG story short, the bed and bedding has to stay per the husband, but new wife wants the room spruced up from all the dark furniture and to make it hers.


So I came up with a palette to tone down all the dark wood but add some spunk without being too girly....I built off this floral pattern as my big dramatic piece (which I used for the headboard to catch your attention).

Then to tie it all in we are having 2 cushions made, one for the window seat in that "Peacock" faux suede and the other will be for the bench at the end of the bed in a leopard faux suede (which let me state now the hubby wasn't too thrilled with).

So far the headboard is done and is just floating out there....

But I already see a light at the end....Well in this picture too, ha!

Speaking of light.....The following new table lamps arrived last night and my client said they look even better in person, she was thrilled!!!  These will replace the tired ones they currently have on their night stands now.

The last fabric in that palette is that goldy/checked one and that will be for a valance above the window to draw your eye up, oh yeah we are losing the wood stained 2" blinds for some light colored Silhouettes.

I of course will show you the finished project next week....Stay tuned....And in the meantime let me know if you can see this room finished yet.

Have a great weekend everyone, we are off to the Pecan Festival with Calvin, woof!

So sorry you lost your post, I hate when good computer goes bad :( but I'm glad you got to enjoy that gorgeous sunset :). I absolutely adore those new lamps! Also love how the new headboard is scaled, it really makes the bed the star. I can absolutely see how the room is going to be much more sophisticated and elegant with your touch. Can't wait to see the finished room! xox Anne

Love your fabric choices, Marie! The headboard looks great. I had a client where the husband was not totally on-board. He must have thought I was going to make them buy all new stuff! By the end of the project, he was my biggest fan and was even asking me how he should display his trophies and plaques!

Can't wait to see the finished product. Love the choices of fabric for this room, the combinations are beautiful.
