Here's my bedroom. It's really quite small bit I like it -- especially the built-in bookcases that hold a good part of my books. I love my bed's brass headboard and -- at least for now -- I'm happy with the spread and shams which were another gift from Richard who thinks he's my mother when he's really just my decorator. There's also an antique double dresser and a chest of drawers. I've pictures that need to be hung and need a few accessories for this room but haven't done much because no one sees it except me. I need to get Rich over here and he'll know what to do -- he always does. (I contend that every woman should have a gay man for a friend -- they're invaluable.)
What Richard hasn't got is a solution for is my kitchen. It can only be described as weird in the weirdest sense that happens when an old house is duplexed. It's a right angle with appliances on one wall (the first photo and cupboards and counter space on the other (the other three photos). I'm hanging pictures on the other walls when I'm a bit more organized. The color scheme is red, white and blue and I'm adding things as I find them. The throw rugs are navy blue and the valances are trimmed in red with red accents. I keep adding things as I find them. It's a work in progress. And yeah, the lighting is weird, too.
Off the kitchen is what could be a breakfast room but I am making it a den. It's a work in progress and will continue as such for a while. I'm driving myself crazy organizing my books and searching for the perfect curtains. My dear friend Hattie aka Mother Pie graciously sent me some gorgeous Mexican textiles that will grace the walls there, as I'll be carrying over the red, white and blue theme there. (Although Richard and I have discussed re-doing my bedroom and putting them there. The trick is finding the right bedspread and curtains.)
Sooooooooooo there y'all have it: you've seen prolly ninety percent of my world! It isn't fancy but it's mine and I am reasonably happy here. Dan, my landlord, says I'm the best tenant he's had here. I just bite my tongue to keep from asking for new carpet.
I promise that when the den is done, I'll invite y'all back again!!! Thanks for visiting!!!
