I am enjoying a beautiful view from my office this morning…the leaves are changing, the wind is bringing in the cold, and I can spy the lake through the thinning leaves! We are scooting to Highlands this weekend with some sweet friends. It’s a short drive for us, and we are tickled to be with good company and in the mountains for a few days!
Now for a little before and after for your Friday!
Remember the bay window post I shared with you all a few weeks ago?
Well, not to be out done, but the master bedroom bay window needed some window treatment love too!
Here’s the space before we got started:
A comfy pair of chairs and a skirted table provided a sweet spot for a respite, but the windows were lacking.
And not only did the form need a little something, but we were dealing with a function issue too. As the sun rose in the mornings, this window gave the master of the house a bird’s eye view of that bright sunshine. Since the corner was a little cramped for a traditional drape, a roman shade seemed more apropos.
Each window was fitted with a simply pretty creamy white roman shade, while height was accentuated with classic linen draperies hanging from a black rod.
And problem solved in this corner too!
The roman shade lets up and down easily to let sleepers get some shut-eye past sunrise!
I love the finished look that this gives to an already great vignette in the home.
While we were at it, the bathroom called for some “glam” as well. These handsome duck prints were placed in the master bath a few years ago, but weren’t conducive to the lady of the house sharing this gorgeous space too.
So, two mirrored frame sepia prints now hang in their spot. 🙂
I love these prints, and even have them in my home too. Sadly, they are now discontinued, but I love the mix of masculine and feminine they provide.
