secret project



Chip was in Nashville for five days this past week. When Chip is away the treatgirl likes to change stuff!! It all started last Christmas when Chip came home with a new 42" flat screen for the family room....in one weekend I got a new sectional, media cabinet, chocolate brown leather recliner, window treatments, and accessories....all in chocolate brown and blue.....well, this turned into a tweaking of the powder room upstairs.....which then led to the treatgirl thinking she was sick and tired of her master bedroom!!! Don't get me wrong..it was perfectly fine....I just needed a change...something chocolate brown and blue! I sewed everything you see in the picture above...the duvet, bed skirt, shams, euro pillow and window panels. That was six years ago and I just didn't feel the love of doing it all again....so slowly over the past few months I have been collecting bits and pieces and stashing them away waiting for Chip to be out of town long enough to make the big switch-a-roo....well......whadda think??





I love it!!! My sister....the fabulous interior designer that she is....was in town for the weekend and helped me with the pillows and added the blue quilt...I have new lamps on the way and she suggested painting the wall behind my bed and around my windows a slate blue......that may happen in next few days as well. I felt like a princess away at a spa hotel the next morning when I woke up. Chip didn't seem overly thrilled, but....oh well!!! When the treatgirl is happy, everyone's happy!!!

I absolutely love it! A big change but so much more modern and for the better. We all need an update every once in a while.

It looks amazing! Blue and brown are so sharp together, and is it just me or does your space look larger now?
