Another Room Transformed

It all started with receiving this beautiful wreath made by Linda aka Luluz.
I knew this bedroom needed to be filled with cream and this shade of blue.
Here are some before shots.

I actually liked the existing pinecone stenciling when we moved into our house 12 years ago.
My decorating tastes have changed a lot in the meantime.

Too much stuff! Time to edit.

The paper garland was the perfect thing to go over my bed. I have a big girl-crush on Pam Garrison and everything she creates. She borrowed the garland idea from Anthropologie.

Here is a closer look at the garland. Lisa and I will be teaching a workshop on paper garlands at Bountiful Home on June 20.

I gathered five of my favorite floral pictures, and rescued Aunt Iris' chair from a closet.

Still to do - painting this bedroom set a chippy, cream. But that involves emptying drawers and way too many decisions for now. Instead, I'll focus on how much calmer I feel in this room now. -- Beth

I love how the room looks. It's fixed up and decorated quite nicely.
