"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!
