My favorite room...

I wanted to share with you all my favorite room of my house...mostly because Miss Juliette Marie....makes it truly hers...but second the lighting, color, and great vintage finds really make it home!

First...in regards to paint colors for children's rooms....check out pottery barns kids colors made by Benjamin Moore. They are all beautiful colors and you can purchase them at any Benjamin Moore paint store. I used the color fairest pink in Juliette's room and it was just the right color pink. Nothing to over the top...you know nothing that would give you a  "pink overload"!! I am in love with natural light...so the entire wall of windows in her room sold me at first site! I mixed various shades of white distressed pieces of furniture in her room....little decorating tip...everything doesn't have to match exactly...actually it is much nicer on the eye when everything blends rather than matches exactly!

Juliette's antique amoire was purchased in Breaux Bridge, LA.

I like to use a lot of white, cream, ivory colors when decorating....it keeps everything simple, but yet tastefully and doesn't compete with the other decor.


Vintage distressed frame I purchased in Breaux Bridge, LA during there annual city wide garage sale!


A wall collage with an old distressed frame, window, and framed screen....which was also all purchased in Breaux Bridge, LA.



Juliette's Vintage inspired Christmas tree...around the tree I hung mason jars from the ceiling and put tea lights in the jars.

Here is an old frame that I painted, distressed, and then did a few scrapbook techniques on.

The quote is: "A bird doesn't sing because it has an answer it sings because it has a song in it's heart."


The birds are chipboard and I covered it with old dictionary paper then added some luminere paint around the edges.


A little wreath I made using a circle whole punch and various pieces of scrapbook paper.

Handmade ornaments....with clear glass balls the possibilities are unlimited!

Felt flowers...I have a tutorial posted about how to make them....so just scroll down to the previous post and you should see it.




Hope you enjoyed...
