Tinker, Tailor

I tinker a lot more than I used to.

I think this has to do with working from home (though I did that once before) and constantly being in the presence of fabrics and home goods.  Thinking about home all the time means thinking about MY home, too.

As much as I am thinking lately about summer decor and what I would change if money was no object (it is!), mostly I want to be done.  I want to finish and enjoy.

So, short of splurging on any designer fabrics, I may have hit on a mix in the guest room that's working for me.

This room has been virtually done for a long time.  After swapping the mirror for a photograph (a gift from the friend who shot our wedding), the only thing that wasn't doing it for me was the fabric mix on and around the bed.  I changed out the sconces (the fabric used to match the headboard), brought in a navy kantha quilt with birthday money from my in-laws, borrowed a pink velvet pillow I made for the living room, and now I plan to make a case for the body pillow from that navy and taupe striped fabric.  It's got a sort of navajo pattern in raspberry between the stripes.

Short of replacing the duvet and bed skirt (wedding gifts that have seen better days), this might just be it.


  1. What a great, rich, cozy retreat. So enveloping and welcoming . . . great job!

  2. I love it! I'm a big fan of the saturated color and how it reads very gender neutral. I dream of having at least one space finished in my house. Everything is currently about 8% done.


Let me know what you think. I love hearing from you!
