a little of this, a little of that


Did you think our bedroom looked a little bare in the last post


Yeah, me too. 


So I added a little bit of this and a little bit of that. 


Romantic touches here and there.


Like these crewelwork framed pieces passed down from two generations.  They add a sweet vintage touch:


And this darling purse belonged to my grandmother who recently passed away. 


Whenever I dress up I really do use it.  It always makes me think of her and the elegance she exuded.


Do you dress like your house?  I do.  At least conceptually. Simple with a feminine twist… that’s me.


I used an old battery crate turned upside down to serve as an ottoman.  The chair is from Wisteria:


Oh, and I painted the bed on a complete whim.  I woke up one morning and decided it needed to be our island color


But now I think it’s a little too light.  And not quite right.


But good enough for now.


  1. Where are you getting your energy? I love everything you and your hubby have done. It looks great!
    Did your yard and house survive yesterday's storms? Our NC cast was pretty beaten.

  2. It is gorgeous! I love that chair and the crate as an ottoman.

  3. Not just good enough for now. Your room is fabulous!

  4. The crate as an ottoman is so creative. I love the added touches. Our style is the same whether it's in our house or how we dress; comfortable. It doesn't matter if we dress for work or dress for a special occasion, whether we are hanging out at home or having company, we like comfort. I like the bed painted but I also liked it before :)

  5. I love the chair and ottoman, too. You never cease to amaze me - in so many ways. xoxoxo

  6. Loved it before, but your additions are so perfectly appointed. I adore that you have your grandma's pocketbook hanging in your room. How sentimentally lovely is that? And like everyone else, the crate for an ottoman is brilliant!

  7. Honestly I noticed the painted bed straight away, the color is pretty but what if you distressed it a bit, then some stain? That might make it not so bright but still work as painted.

  8. Your room looks gorgeous! Love the chair and your painted bed - the battery crate adds so much too! Beautiful as always!

  9. Wow, it's amazing what a few little accessory touches can do! This is where I struggle the most in my decorating . . . all the little homey touches that make a room that is fine into one that is warm and inviting. Love the room!

  10. Very pretty. I love your loose, casual style!


  11. I love this room! Your "Little of this and little of that" things are just great! Great photo's! Thanks for sharing.
    Best wishes,

  12. i love that chair!!!! and your room is so pretty it looks like a show room :)

  13. Your room looks beautiful I love the added styling! Just perfect.

  14. You have a terrific way of pulling pieces together to create a beautiful home. I featured your blog today at stylesson.com.

  15. I have been reading your blog for a while now, but this is the first time I've commented. I love how beautifully simple & honest your decorating is. You're blog is one of my favorites & I always look forward to your posts. The bedroom is great! You have such talent and are quite humble about it!

  16. I absolutely love your style. It's what I would like our home to look like! Your bedroom is amazing!

  17. Wow, I'm impressed you painted the bed on a whim like that. I never hesitate to paint over paint, but I am a little afraid to paint wood - it seems so permanent - what if I want the wood back?? The room is lovely - so sweetly staged.

  18. Great job, Rie! Those small touches always make a big impact! And what a sweet touch with your grandmom's purse. :)

  19. I think the bed is beautiful, I love the color. Do you mind sharing the color name? and did you paint the bed frame with a brush? The finish looks smooth, just wondering how you got it that way. Beautiful room!

  20. Hi Anonymous! I actually linked to the paint color in my post. When I said "our island color", if you click that, it will bring you to a post where I stated what paint formulation it is. I painted the posts with a brush and the flat parts with a roller. It does look smooth, which I'm glad about.

  21. Where are your dressers? Do you hang everything up? How do you do it?

  22. I love your space it looks so relaxing. When you get a chance checkout my latest post. My idea for my cane chair came from yours I combined your chair with one I saw on Sarah Richardson show :) I think its a good combination.


I love hearing from you!
