Paint, lattice, and a nail gun turned this sunny but boring room into a master retreat.
Like many rooms in our home, the master bedroom was unremarkable. Three large windows brought in a lot of light, but the stained floors, uneven ceilings, and ugly baseboard radiators didn't do anything to add charm. We created a relaxing retreat with a simple lattice treatment, color, neutral bedding, and a few pops of color.
The room started with three big windows but little interest.
Chris used a nail gun to apply inexpensive lattice, creating a board-and-batten effect. Read more this project.
The 160-year old windows were badly in need of refinishing. The painters cleaned, restored, and repainted them to look like new.
The two-tone paint scheme creates a bright, happy space with a dark ceiling that recedes, making the ceilings feel taller.
After painting our inexpensive bed frame, we wrapped it in neutral ticking fabric.
Using an upholstery stapler, Chris "gift wraps" the headboard in the fabric.
Our Wrap Star sconces hang over vintage milking stools.
A custom slipcover for this old love seat adds color.
We had a slipcover made for this vintage chair. Roger painted the legs red.
This vintage milk stool makes a great bedside table.

With most luxury furniture companies, only a fraction of each dollar you spend is actually used to build your sofa. Let's look at just a few of the other things you're paying for when you shop with big retailers.
We've gathered some of our favorite sofas and armchairs in gorgeous blue velvets, along with design inspiration from around the web.
Velvet fabric can be a bit trickier to clean than other fabrics because, in addition to removing the stain, you must take care to avoid "crushing" the nap of the fiber. Here are some tips to help you successfully remove stains without damaging your beautiful furniture.
Roger and I decided that board-and-batten would make a nice addition to the look of our master bedroom. This time, I tackled the project myself. Here's how to do it and what you'll need for the project.
I've never lived in a tiny village before. I knew we were in for a big change, but there are a few things that have still surprised me. I thought you city folk might find some of these interesting (and the country folk will just laugh at me).

Roger and I are in Atlantic City this weekend for the New Jersey Home & Garden Show. I snuck out of the convention center during a break between sessions to explore the boardwalk and take a few photos.
