Last summer my hubby removed his PROPERTY :) from our upstairs office and permanently established it in another place in our home! This of course was very exciting to me as it freed up a bedroom for a complete makeover. I'd always wanted a comfy place where I could sit a spell and slowly sip a cup of my favorite raspberry tea. The once "highly technical space" has now become a place of refuge~ I can relax, read, write or maybe even "dress the wounds of a trying day..."
The walls of my pretty new hideaway are a soft pinkish taupe color called "Pale Brick". The delightfully sweet desk you see above (circa 1940) was in my daughter's bedroom when she was just a little girl. But, because of it's style it really wasn't suitable for use with a computer, etc. So as she grew older, off to storage it went! I just couldn't bear to part with it. It took a few coats of my favorite cottage white paint to make her presentable again, but today she is lovely once more. Paired with a vintage oak chair, a swivel mapel rocker from an old thrift store and the timeless charm of a vintage Jelly Cabinet, the room is now complete. I'm in heaven.

You forgot to mention the previous incarnation of this room... it was mine! Remember the giant "311" on the wall with blue Christmas lights? Good times! :)

Love the blog!
