A little Spring cleaning going on here. Since this is an old house and I have a passion for antiques, I have tried to keep with the era and the feeling of the house. I know most people are going with beautiful whites, blue and the very pastel colors, which I think are beautiful, but, I think I will stay with my reds. The wall color in this room is a little darker than antique white and I can live with it since it matches the adjoining bathroom perfectly. So I guess in a way I am somewhat in style color. I added the sheer curtains to the bed since Spring and Summer will be here soon. Traditionally this type of curtain would have been used in the summer to keep the mosquitoes away at night and a heavier curtain in the winter to keep the warmth in the bed chamber.
How about an afternoon nap before dinner?
Don't forget your gloves, purse and pearls.
Of course I have added more toile fabric to a side table and window panels.
The extra fabric on the window gives guest a little more privacy since we live on main street.
That's all for now. I hope you enjoyed my attempt at bring a little French style into my old house.
See you soon,
