"The Finished Product"

This is the finished product.... this is the bed in our guest room and it is in the style of Louis 15th. It is painted in a white milk paint and upholstered in a very natural linen which lends itself to either neutral bedding such as the white I have used here or a more coloured palette. The sheets and pillowcases have a beautiful dragonfly motif on them in taupe and pale blue. I always generally face the opening of the pillowcases away from the sides of the bed..... but if you have a motif you want displayed then the opening has to face outwards. I never put cushions on the tips .... they must always be on the base. Europe cushions I like to have sitting up straight. I have a few wrinkles in the top duvet as I have a second one lying at the base of the bed... and it wasn't co-operating! I always like to put fresh flowers in the guest bedroom and even some fresh fruit! This fruit is actually decorative.... they are handpainted marble and are so realistic. I hope you enjoy and have a bit of fun with the bedmaking!

Good evening beautiful!!! I just woke up from a long nap and I had told myself early today that I was going to add you to my blog list....I must follow you closely! It is amazing to me as I look at your blog; first of all, this post is remarkable. Secondly, that MARBLE FRUIT!!! I HAVE THE SAME THING! When I lived in Boston, there was a delicious shop in town called Seletto....Provençal, French classic and Italianesque wares were the rage and I just had to have these pieces, and they still grace my kitchen in a wooden basket after all these years!

One of your friends Vickey, came to visit me and gave me a link to your blog saying that we must meet, but then realized that you had already come!!! I so enjoy your style and must examine closely your past posts. Here is wishing you a lovely weekend and stay in the PINK!!!!
