Beach Bedroom

I’m back working on this room again. It got so hot I didn’t bother with it this summer. As you remember I started this project back in the fall of last year. I was in the hunt mode for an old dresser to match my old chest, which I finally found a couple months back. Anyway this weekend or Monday one I will go get my floor covering for the floor. It’s a neutral color that I can put any color with. I have looked around for me a bedspread and haven’t been happy with anything I’ve found.

I saw this one on this bed and about flipped out! I don’t remember WHERE I saw this pic. I had just saved it on here for an inspirational pic. But I LOVE this spread! I don’t want palm trees or lighthouses or anything like that for my bedspread. In fact what I was thinking about was this. I thought about making one something like this and making it like a duvet cover so I could take the bedspread out of it in the summertime and just use it without anything in it for the summer. Then put the spread which is more like a large quilt back in it for the wintertime.


Although my walls aren’t white, they’re sky blue. So I don’t know IF this would be too much blue or not. The bottom half of the walls ARE white. On the pillow sham I want to do a monogram in white where the blue is.

I’m STILL trying to get all of this figured out! You’d think after a year I’d have it wouldn’t you?

OK went and looked at fabric tonight and had my paint card with me and I never did find a blue that would work for the stripe in this quilt to match my blue walls or even come close to matching! :( I even looked a printed fabric with white in it so it would look right to add the white piece in it. Now I'm back to square one again.
I wanted to somehow incorporate beige into it as well. I had thought if I could find cloth with beige and white that I could do a beige bed skirt. Anyway still trying to figure it out.


Oh man Punky, that is GORGEOUS! I LOVE LOVE LOVE all that lace! That is just beautiful! Hey you guys check this out! Isn’t it pretty? CLICK HERE
