An update on the guest bedroom.
I have the drapes finished and installed and I love them. Forgotten are all of the difficulties I had with hanging the rod and the hassle of working with yards and yards of fabric. The are fully lined and pleated.
As this is a guest room and they won't be drawn very often I decided to puddle the drapes. Not to everyone's taste but I think it adds a little touch of elegance. I did what is called a trouser puddle. Until recently I didn't realize there were different styles for puddling drapes.
The ladies writing desk was one of the first antiques we ever purchased.
One of the reasons I picked this floral fabric for the room is because I thought it would work with this blue and white stripped chair, which I wanted to keep...it's so cute.
And...this beautiful fringe, an extravagance that was well worth the cost.
But alas, I am not finished as now I must tackle the cover, pillows and bolsters for the daybed.
They will be made from a matelasse coverlet, with a bottom ruffle made of the floral fabric.

This painting which was done by my aunt many years ago as a gift for my grandfather will hang over the daybed...rather fitting, sheep for a bedroom. Although it might not appear so in this photo the colors in the painting tie the whole room together. I have had it for a while and I am pleased to finally find a place to put it.
So...I am almost finished, I will share the daybed when it is done.
Oh, I also have an idea for embellishing the ceiling, very experimental but it just might work.
