Better But Not Quite There Yet

I (meaning we) got enough of the the new room loaded in for three of my nieces to sleep there over the Thanksgiving holiday. It’s not finished. It still needs lamps, a rug, shades for the windows, and possibly an armoire. I also plan on having a couple of throw pillows made for the bed and to recover an existing bench I own. The most annoying thing is that I have to have the curtains shortened! Ahhhh! I can’t figure out if I just ordered the wrong ones or if I forgot to account for the new crown molding when I measured. I’m very seriously annoyed with myself about that. Oh well, here’s a peak at it so far:

from the hallway

I love how the map turned out!

need artwork and lamps and more pillows. Always more pillows!

this wall will definitely change

So, that’s what I have so far. I hope it doesn’t take me too long to finish. I don’t want it to be added to my never ending list of projects that aren’t done.

    I do love that paint color Nichole. Well done! Now, when you put a rug in there, where will you place it, and how big will it be? I keep wanting to get a rug for our master, to add some color, but I’m not sure how to go about that. We don’t have that much floor space I don’t guess, after looking at your photo here, but I do wonder about a little pop of color coming out from around the bed maybe . . .??


  2. Looks great! I LOVE that map!


  3. I think it looks great! And, I think wall mounted sconces (the plug in kind) would look cool in there. I wish I could make them work in my house. Love the blue!


  4. It looks really good! I don’t think the curtains need to be hemmed. They look perfect to me.

    Love the room color and the new additions. I think the map should be on the wall
    over the beds, as the colors coordinate with the bedding?? Just a thought.
