A couple of months ago my daughter came across this little settee on good ol' Craigslist. She sent me the email thinking I might want it for my booth space, but after purchasing it, we decided it was simply too sweet to part with. It has a down filled cushion and, besides being so charming, it is exactly what I would imagine sitting on a cloud would be like. (Um...other than the fact that the fabric was nothing like a cloud...it was a very busy, cheerful floral. So not my daughter's style...)
Not to worry. My girls hit the fabric store one morning and found the perfect shabby-but-classic linen type fabric. We found an amazing slipcover gal on...Craigslist. (Where else?)
Oh yes, it's sweet as can be. Like I said, it's just as I imagine sitting on a cloud would be like, and it's the perfect finishing touch for her bedroom. Here is the finished product... Let me show you the other side of her bedroom, which she is very nearly finished decorating.(All that is left to do is add some personal details and finish up her window treatments!)
I found her the exact same headboard I have on my bed (Although mine has a footboard)...except I found her's at an estate sale and snagged it for $25. (Can you believe that?!)
Her walls are freshly painted with a really amazing color from Restoration Hardware. In some lights it looks like it has a hint of green, other times it appears blue-ish, and more often, it has a gray-green look...at any rate, any time you look at this color, it is soothing. Spa like if that makes any sense. It's a deliciously calm and neutral color.
Her duvet set on the bed is from Target, and it looks like a million bucks. (Seriously, why pay a fortune when you can make it all happen with thrifted finds and bargain store bedding?) She's still got to finish out her window treatments and add a few little somethin-somethin's, but the room is complete for the most part....and it was all done on a shoestring of a budget.
It's the perfect retreat, and the little settee was just meant-to-be in this room, don't you agree?
