Dreamy Decorating

I love how the textures and layers come together to make this room something special.  This room is nothing, if not relaxing.

With a foundation of Swedish-style wallpaper, I can add sweetness to the room with a few accent pieces.

The dreamy effect of this sideboard is sponsored by the color pink.  A combination of soft lighting (from a lace-trimmed lampshade), a distressed pink wooden candlestick and 2 roses just clipped from the garden combine to make a gorgeous vignette.

Want to recreate this look?  You can find your own interesting (but reasonable) glass candlesticks online at one of my favorite stores, CB2.  A set of pink candlesticks is as easy as buying cheap wooden candlesticks at the craft store and painting them yourself!  And the roses?  Well, you know how much I want you to grow a David Austin rose like Heritage

Take a little time and plan what you'll need to soften your little corner of the world.

I loved it more every time I walked through my family room - had to show you all.
