20 years, 7 years

This weekend I celebrated my 20 year high school reunion.  I went to a small, private, all-girls school, and it was such a delight to see half my class back together 20 years later.

Last week, when I happened upon these cute Cynthia Rowley lamps at TJ Maxx

I immediately thought, oooh, if I was still in high school, I would build a bedroom around those!

So I did.

So cute!  I bet the 17 year old me would love this (though the real teenaged me did this.  At least I committed, right?)  This board was super fun.  I grabbed a desk from my small-scale desk round up, bedding from my smokin sheets and shams selection, a side table from my awesome and affordable side table list, a side chair that I considered for this client, slipper chair I had considered for this client, and one of West Elm's new rustic-modern pieces for a dresser.  (sources mostly here.)

What do you think: can you see a high school senior or college freshman digging it?  You know, in that sweet spot right before they dye their hair black and go through a goth phase, or whatever.

Oh!  Also.  It has been twenty years since college, ten years since I met my husband, and seven years (today) since I married him.  Seven years, and no itch.


  1. Happy anniversary to you both! And I'd say your style has definitely evolved - for the better!

  2. Oh, I could totally see a teenager being into this room. And congratulations on seven years! To many, many more (all free of that itch!).


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