Paint-By-Numbers room

Monday, May 16, 2011

Today I am sharing a guest bedroom that I just completed. This is my client's mountain home. She
flew in this weekend to see it for the first time.  

This was a really fun room to complete. This family loves color and trusts in the 'design process' so
working with them is such a treat.

I have been bidding on these vintage paint-by-numbers on ebay for months. They arrived in all kinds of
painted and stained frames. Originally, I thought I would white wash them all, but when I experimented
with one, I didn't like it. So, instead I painted them with a watered down brown paint and/or used Tudor
 Brown Briwax to create a cohesive 'brown tone' .   

These paint-by-number pillows were my jumping off point. These, along with the vintage inspired
 crocheted throws {I love these so much!} were the inspiration for the room.

The beds were custom made locally. I had them painted in Robins Egg Blue, glazed and waxed.

This is the dresser that I showed you in this post. It is the perfect fit between the beds.

The homeowners have a bull dog, so imagine my excitement when I scored a pair of bull dog
paint-by-numbers!  I love to incorporate personal accessories into a family's design. 

We did a stained concrete floor using browns and rusts in the downstairs level. Here it is
layered with a Chocolate Tartan plaid Dash & Albert rug.

As you walk in the room, there is a little nook that is now the background for an old shutter that I
attached the other 'portrait' of Bubba which is held in place with upholstery tacks.

A collection of vintage anagrams that I scored on ebay years ago were used to personalize the shutter.

I'll share more details of the room throughout the week.

Shannon, I love this room--it looks like it was gradually put together lovingly over the years--not like it was "designed" which is one of the great things about this room. The colors are fabulous. Those crocheted spreads are amazing. Love your style!
