Wouldn't this be spectacular in one of Montreal's downtown lofts. Old warehouses are being converted to grand living spaces instead of being torn down. Nice to see some are preserving our past. This is by far my favorite. I could live in a space similar to this. The layers of drapery give a sense of fantasy and
romance. Imagine an afternoon lounging under this canopy of creaminess. Dreamy!
The ceiling deserves a mention in this photo. White drapery is always so fresh looking and romantic.
I used white flowing drapery to separate my daughters studio apartment. Drapery allows her to tie them back when more lighting is needed throughout the space and to pull them closed for a little privacy. Her studio apartment is located in Midtown Manhattan so she gets many visitors. I being one of them. :) I will have to take some pictures and share while I am there, but it looks much like this.
I find the drapery just softens the hard lines. Adds a little bit of fantasy to the space. Mmm I would love to have this cabin perched at the top of my hill overlooking the lake. I am allowed to dream.
This is a little more within my budget, and what I can afford at the moment. I can do this!!!!
Pray for a dry summer.
Fantasy hammocks. Would look stunning on an outside deck.
A white wonderland. Could be interesting in an attic converted to a bedroom.
Large grommet drapes are used to separate the two spaces. Salvaged raw lumber makes a stunning bed frame.
Drapery weaved through a wrought iron "demi lune" frames the bed.
The crowning jewel.
A soft room divider again lets the light glow through.
A little touch of whimsical fantasy. Very Victorian and yet not.
I can see a teenager enjoying this set-up in a basement bedroom. I know I would have just loved it. Of course I would have had to kick my two sisters out.
I adore this bed.
Last but definitely not least is the lovely creamy drapery used in Mme. Classy Lady's former dining room. Her home is always a show stopper and the inspiration to this post.
And here in her Shabby chic, Pays des merveilles. She is clearly the queen of drapery.
Hope you enjoyed my little inspirational journey. What are some of your favorite bedroom inspirations?
I recently started to redo my bedroom but was temporally put out of service for a few months with a broken shoulder. Its been a very long recovery, I WILL have to recount all that wonderful fiasco. I can laugh about it now! I couldn't move or do very much, so I plopped myself down in front of my computer, had a ball being catered to by my 17 year old son and low and behold I discovered Miss Mustard Seed's blog. She inspired me to do what I love to do. It brought me to here, today.... blog land with all my wonderful blog friends. It has been quite a journey and I am loving it. Thanks to all my readers and followers. Merci. Once I return from New York I will commence the work in my bedroom. I would love if you all came along and followed. I have a very small budget, a big imagination and no Mr. Handyman. Just me, myself and I along with my two wonderful helpful teenage boys. This is where the fun begins. I have so many projects I spin in circles most of the time. Hopefully I can stay focused and get started. I have been so inspired by everyone. Thank you again.
My inspirational words for the day.
