I'm kind of going for "granny chic". I decided this when it was finished and I was looking at it. Nothing like a coherent plan. Ha.
I need to get new pillows on the bed because these two are quite old and very smooshed. When you lay on them, your head just goes right down to the mattress, anyway.
And a little rag rug next to the bed, for cold tootsies in the morning. (Except it will always have a dog or cat sleeping on it. That's what happens.)
I love these little bath rugs at Garnet Hill, which also work well next to a bed. Except that Claire has one next to her bed, and Violet chewed on the sweet little scalloped crocheted border, which then unraveled the next time it was washed. I was so mad at that puppy.
And a couple hooks or pegs on the wall for guests to hang their clothes on, because the closet is filled up with craft and office supplies.
The big pine cupboards need a huge cleaning out. I have several little organizing projects I'm looking forward to tackling when school starts. I have to do it when Claire isn't here, because she wants to keep everything she has ever owned. Hoarder. :D (She would also really like me to keep and, ideally, display all the art she has ever created. At an average of three pieces of art a day ... and she's eight ... let's see ... that's about 8,760 pieces of art. Our refrigerator would tip over.)
I was thinking about simple curtains, too, to close over the roller blinds as needed. It is blindingly sunny in this room. Maybe these ones here, in the fabric below? What do you think? Too much yellow? Too flowerly? I have a weakness for calico.
Or maybe these? I have a weakness for gingham. :) Too much yellow, huh? But I am so tempted to just do too much yellow, on purpose. An excess of sunny. Can you even have too much yellow? I do not think so.
Feel free to express your strong opinion about curtains in this room. I'm a-listenin'.
Oh, baby toes. I wish I could have Claire at all her different ages.
