What a difference a weekend makes!

Those of you who know me know that I often toss everything I own and start fresh when I move. Well, I have decided to do that but NOT move. So we will get to experience the "tiny apartment" two different ways. This weekend I painted the bedroom and hung curtains. My painter ditched me so I did it all by myself! Argh... Here is the before:

 And here is the between - sold shelving, faux moroccan rug, art and pouf. Added lacquered bedside tables, lamps, and rumpled new bedding (sorry for not cleaning for pics!)....

And here is the after - painted walls a soft cream, hung cream linen drapes, added Beni Ourain Moroccan rug and Christian Chaize beach photo over bed.

Once again, sorry for not cleaning up or making bed for pics, but I just wanted to give you a taste of what is happening. I think the beach photo, cream plaster lamps and purple John Robshaw throw are making this room a little too beachy for me, but I will live with it for a while. I have another idea for more sophisticated art, more glam lamps, and a hanging pendant or chandelier. I will also order a stingray covered chest from R & Y Augousti, but that takes six months to come in.
Stay tuned for changes to the living room - and let me know what you think so far!

That's a make over alright! Though I like the bedroom in all 3 pictures really, it's all gorgeous. I feel like making over our entire house....Must be the Summer.
Come and check/follow my blog, that would be fun. I started one last month, it's: formsandfinds.blogspot.com.
Have a gr-8week!

WOW, what a difference! I'm loving the more 'beachy' look, but that's just me!

Holy moly sugar plum! I freaking die for this room. So breezy. The drapes are an amazing touch. And those nightstands...heavenly. Can't wait to see when complete!

Oh so lovely!! It's so peaceful and easy. I really love it. I need a closeup of those divine nightstands!

What art are you thinking?

I love it, very fresh and clean. I love that rug so much and want one for my master bedroom. We are doing polished concrete floors. Where did you get it from
