Changes at Maison Cote de Texas

image Sarah Elisabeth Webb – with the cutest double chin in the world!

She started out with a cute room, of course, almost 19 years ago. It was pink, with pink and white ticking and a fabulous (then) cabbage rose chintz by Waverly (remember Waverly?) that I had bought at Joanne’s. There was an iron day bed (for the baby nurse that I never hired, much to the dismay of my mother who still, to this day, blames Elisabeth’s erratic sleeping patterns on the fact that I didn’t have that said baby nurse) and there was a child sized table with chairs that I had painted to match the chintz, along with a tiny quilt hand sewn by my mother-in-law out of all the fabrics in her nursery. There was an adorable dhurrie that mimicked a Portuguese needlepoint rug (in my dreams!) and faux Roman window shades. When we built our current house, we kept the same furniture for the Princess, sans the crib, and added a white wallpaper with a tiny pink fleur de lis all-over pattern ala Jane Churchill (again, in my dreams.) She lived in this room for years until slowly, as she got older – and more toys and junk accumulated – she totally trashed it out. One day, probably when she was around ten, she decided to start all over with a move to the guest room – a much smaller room that shares a bath with my office. It was a move she now regrets – her old room had lovely windows, including a cushy window seat that overlooked our once majestic water oak, a large walk in closet – and a private bathroom. When she took over her new room, we went together to IKEA for furniture and bedding, mostly yellow and orange plaid and checked fabrics. She lived with it during her pre-teen years until she discovered West Elm.

lissroom 001 Her former bedroom. You can see the dhurrie rug with the rose pattern on it. The child sized table lasted a long time, as did the iron day bed with its ticking bedspread. The quilt my mother-in-law hand sewed out of all her Waverly fabrics is layered over the bed. You can just barely see the pink and white fleur de lis wallpaper in this faded photograph. What a dump! No wonder she wanted to switch rooms and start over!

image The New Teenage Room.

At 15 – she stated she wanted to redesign her room herself and I decided to let her. Not that I really had a choice – she’s a willful, independent child who knows her own mind and arguing with her is hopeless. From West Elm she chose the popular cut-out headboard and nightstands, along with the matching cut-out shelf unit. The large mirror she bought at IKEA. The paint colors were also her choice - the ceiling was deep purple and the walls were a silvery lilac. I helped her pick out the fabrics – silks and crushed velvets. She has always fashioned herself a glamour girl. My mother took one look and proclaimed it “The Bordello.” This vision lasted three years. Recently she started hinting around that she either wanted to move back into her old room, which is now my guest room – an idea I quickly rejected - or she wanted to get rid of the dark walls and contemporary furniture. I was beyond thrilled. She’s leaving for college in September and though there were certain things she requested – like white walls and French styled furniture – whenever I would ask her opinion she would say “do whatever you want Mom, I’m leaving soon and this won’t be my room anymore.” Sob.

imageThe Anthropologie campaign style canopy bed – here in the famous domino magazine Marie Antoinette story - was the inspiration.

And then what always happens when an interior designer decides to redo their own house happened – each decision became a major, drawn out process of back and forth second guessing. To furnish a client’s bedroom – I might take a week of planning. Elisabeth’s small room took me months to finalize each detail, each time I chose something, I changed my mind the next day. The jumping off point was the Anthropologie canopy bed – there was no question about that. The only discussion was its size. I was paralyzed in choosing between the twin or the queen (double is not available). After weeks of deliberation (and endless emails with a blogger who also owned the bed) it was decided that her room was not big enough for the queen, and in a compromise we ordered the chaise longue from Wisteria for when a friend might sleep over. The first disaster was the new twin mattress that was so high she literally needed a step ladder to climb onto it. That had to be returned.

Lizzybed 004 The Anthropologie bed arrives, along with the Princess and a Pea mattress. Notice the step ladder she needed to climb into bed. Needless to say, the mattress was returned for a more manageable one.

The next major issue was choosing a fabric. The beautiful Bennison Roses fabric in blue that I bought from EBay measured out at 10 yrds instead of the supposed 18, rendering the curtains I wanted an impossibility. Then, I considered all different shades of large checks from Chelsea Editions for the curtains, then it was damasks. Next, I decided to copy Rachel Ashwell’s newest bedroom with the slightest of lilac taffeta for the curtains. In the end, the decor didn’t fall into place until Becky Vizard from BViz waltzed into town. I picked out two antique blue and white Fortuny pillows and another smaller one in a blue velvet with gold embroidery from her gorgeous collection of textiles. So – with the walls freshly painted white, seagrass ordered, the canopy bed in place, and the Wisteria chaise longue off to have a white linen slipcover made for it, I ordered yards and yards of a tiny silk check in soft blue and white from Robert Allen. The chandelier and sconces were finally hung yesterday. Here is how Elisabeth’s room looks today, though she is quick to tell me it won’t be “hers” for long:

Lizzy2 005

I placed the canopy bed against the long back wall – and angled the slipcovered chaise longue in front of the window where her West Elm bed used to be.

lizzysroom 031

The Bella Notte whisper linen bedding came from Olivine, the white curtains on the canopy came from Indulge. The zinc topped scrolled iron table came from the sale at The Fab Flea that I went to HERE.

lizzysroom 025

The velvet pillow is from BViz who specializes in antique textiles. I added the Hunter Douglas bamboo shade so that Elisabeth wouldn’t have to worry about closing her curtains all the time.

lizzysroom 015

On the wall where you walk in I placed a painted French desk from Artesia and hung the antique reproduction mirror from Tara Shaw Maison. I haven’t had a chance to style the desk – and not sure if I will until she leaves for college.

lizzysroom 010

The chandelier came from Amazon. I know, I know. I found it HERE while writing about good bargains. For the price, it’s a lot of look. One thing that Elisabeth specifically requested was a crystal chandelier.

Lizzy 028

I found the sconces on the day of the Fab Flea and Found For the Home sale HERE. This was the same day I bought the zinc topped round table – both were half priced. The sconces were painted green when I bought them, so I redid them in gray and switched out the green crystals for lilac colored rock crystal.

lizzysroom 046

The white tab panels are a cotton and linen blend from Amalfi – available through Indulge HERE.

lizzysroom 007 The duvet is made of whisper thin, see through handkerchief linen from Bella Notte, via Olivine. The twin bedding takes months to special order, so I had Monica from Custom Creations by Monica cut down the full size duvet to fit the bed.

lizzysroom 037 The wooden Santos came from Olivine and I think it really sets the tone in her room – her blue dress blends perfectly. I actually bought that piece for Elisabeth before I even knew what colors her room would be. The lamp came from Aidan Gray and the faux blue book boxes came from Wisteria, as did the chaise longue.

Lizzy2 012

And in front of the scrolled iron table – is an Oriental antique box table where Elisabeth can store things. This used to be in my living room – but was recently replaced by another table.

Lizzy2 022

The gilt chair with linen is one of a pair and comes from French Eloquence, a fabulous wholesale company that services most of the smaller catalogue driven web stores. The other chair is now in my powder room.

lizzy 004

Here is how the room looks at night. The chandelier and sconces are both on dimmers which makes it much nicer than blazing full guns – although that is how Elisabeth likes it. The chandelier looks black, but it is really a dark bronze. I originally tried a wooden Italian styled chandelier from Aidan Gray in here first – but it was too wide and I like touch of sparkle in here.

Lizzy 021

And here you can see the what the Wisteria chaise looks like. The slipcover cost me more than the piece did because we had to first reupholster it in white muslin. The seagrass is custom cut just a few inches from the wall. I found the vintage mannequin at Memorial Antiques and Interiors.

Lizzy 031

The small mirror on the back wall inside the canopy is a faux antique – I repainted its brown wood gray. Here’s a close up of the two Fortuny pillows from BViz which drove the blue and white scheme. Also – the two larger pillows are the tiny check silk from Robert Allen.

Lizzy 025

I didn’t have time to style the desk, but I did remove her laptop. Underneath her desk are the last remnants of her West Elm/IKEA room, contemporary boxes that hold her desk accessories – books, papers, etc. I’ve ordered two large wicker baskets to sit at the side of the desk (I got that idea from Brooke at Velvet and Linen!) – but they haven’t come in yet. The cords, which I still have to fix are from the TV, as are the cable boxes on her desk which will be hidden in the baskets. What I really like is the way the mirror reflects the Santos and the chandelier and during the day, all the sunlight that pours into the room.

lizzysroom 048

Here is how her TV looks in the corner – it’s on a swivel arm, so it comes out and faces the bed or the desk. Short of hiding it in an armoire – this was the best arrangement I could think of for it, given the small size of her room.

lizzysroom 060

And here is Elisabeth – thrilled with her new room. Actually she says “love it” when I repeatedly ask if she is happy with it! Of course Georgie has to be in the mix, but she is so scared of having her picture taken!!

Lizzy2 031

I hope you’ve enjoyed the tour of Elisabeth’s room !!!! I think I have given out all the sources except the paint – it’s Pratt and Lambert - Hedron, 2301. White, with just a hint of gray. The seagrass comes from MARC ANTHONY RUGS @ 713-861-3000, the curtains and bedding were fabricated by Custom Creations BY MONICA: #832-443-1931; and the slipcover was made by Hien Lam Upholsterers (713) 523-3416 and HERE.

Coming soon - I’ll have pictures of my annual family Hanukkah party and then pictures from the Webb Family Christmas at Chappell Hill, Texas will follow. Don’t forget – there is the final Skirted Roundtable of the Year HERE. Our first show in January will feature Stephen Drucker, the fabulous editor of House Beautiful magazine. Winners of my giveaway will be announced in the comment section of that story AND the winners of The Skirted Roundtable giveaway will be announced on that blog – www.skirtedroundtable.blogspot.com.

  1. Wow, this room looks really gorgeous! I love the blues, grays, whites and seagrass - so grown up from the other look! I would have loved this if I was your daughter's age - heck, I'd love to have that room now and I'm old enough to be her mother!! Great job Joni!

  7. Joni,
    My room certainly did NOT look like that when I was a senior in high school! This is just lovely and she will enjoy it so much. She is such a pretty girl...enjoy every teen aged moment with her. You will be crying come March, April, May.....I did. I would be driving down the road and the tears would come with the 'knowing' of college coming. BUT it's all good, (didn't mean to get on a sad note....got caught up reflecting!).
    Happy Hanukkah friend.
    Blessings...

  8. It's a great room. We've redone the rooms for our 3 children, rooms where they'll never really live again. I'm afraid the keyword is "sob" I'm afraid, at least for their dad.

    ReplyDelete
  9. A charming post! The new room turned out beautifully. You have such a lovely way of 'lightening' the mood with funny comments.

    Thank goodness my daughter also recently decided she had enough of aubergine walls! It is a beautiful colour but so dark by day! And she also liked it to be 'daylight' at night time by turning up the lights full volume.
    Thank you for taking us on this sweet memory trip.

  13. Joni -are you kidding me? this room is TOO fabulous - now that she's going off to college can I come live in it? SERIOUSLY!
    and such a pretty young lady deserves such a pretty room! I'm sure after she leaves you'll spend a few nights in here? ha!

    I am wondering if Elisabeth ever babysits??? I am always on the lookout for a sitter for the peanuts.

  24. Joni - this room is just exquisite. I love the quiet, restful colour scheme and the touches of high elegance with the pillows and the lighting and sconces and curves. What I love most is the slate blue colour. Those drapes are the colour I have been searching for - is it blue? gray? And that statue - the piece de resistance. You have outdone yourself - and those Fortuny pillows. I want to climb right in here and have a nap...

    Amazing job - sister- you are one talented girl! xo Terri

  25. So this is how it's done!

  27. Can I move in this September?!? It's gorgeous! I love seeing a room tranform, especially as someone who was very strong willed with my own teenage bedroom (which now horrifies me!). I love how fresh, clean and cozy it is!
    You're obsessing over every detail was well worth it!

  28. Joni,
    Your daughter's room makeover is GORGEOUS...
    Also a quick comment on your promoting the Woodburn Centre for Pigtown Design,
    simply.....WELL DONE!
    The film was touching and your exposure of the need through your blog is marvelous....amazing how this 'blogging thing' can be used for such a great cause!
    Can't wait to see your pictures of the Season's celebrations...they were fabulous last year!

  35. Elisabeth is one lucky girl! What a wonderful gift you have given her. Her bedroom is just beautiful, Joni. I bought that Tara Shaw mirror for the store. I was really impressed with the quality of the finish. Those Fortuny pillows are gorgeous.

  39. Hi Joni,

    I've been wondering how you were going with Elisabeth's bedroom makeover....with all the little glitches that happened along the way the end result is definately worth it!!! You must be really pleased (I know I would be, love everything about it, all the furniture, how all the colours came together. So soothing...fantastic job. Thanks for sharing this with us. Hope you are well, take care.

  41. I love it! I laughed out loud when I saw the picture of the step stool pulled up next to the gigantic mattress. A pre-coffee laugh, which is no easy feet! I hope she enjoys the bedroom, and you'll have a nice place to lounge starting in September ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  42. I LOVE what you did with her room! It is so fabulous- and appreciate the links from everywhere. Though I know your motivation for a fabulous room-- she will want to come back home each holiday and summer from college as no dorm room can touch this!

    Looking forward to Holiday photos. I made potato pancakes in my very-open kitchen this week and thought of you. Yes, the smell was throughout the house for at least a day.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Joni, it's absolutely beautiful! So pretty and so French. Thank you for always being generous by giving out your sources and for always giving other people credit when you're inspired by their ideas or work. Once again, you prove that you really are "Ms. Gracious Living"!

  44. Joni i am IN LOVE. absolutely CRAZY abaout this room!!!!!!!! Oh my gosh it's just so simply beautiful!! So textured, layered, elegant & unique. I can see why Elisabeth loves it & she looks beautiful in the pic too!! (Her hair is so gorgeous long & brown!)

  46. Looks incredible! I am several years behind you in the room renovations with my almost 7 year old. She just announced a month ago that she wants to redo her room. She has been using the Laura Ashley comforter and pillow set that I had in college 20 years ago. I would love to do something similiar to the way your daughter's room looks now, but of she is thinking more "glamorous" like your second redo. I guess I will have to wait a few more years to get to where you are now!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Joni, I have said this before, but it is worth repeating..."YOU can even do a blue room!" I love it! And for me to love a blue room is a big 5 stars!

    ReplyDelete
  48. Absolute perfection!

    When my son left for college, I cried for the first hour driving back to Houston after we left him. Then I recovered and enjoyed a peaceful weekend (the summer before they leave is not pretty). Then when I was at Kroger's a week later, I lost it in the produce section when I picked up three baked potatoes......I only needed two now!

    I'm thinking of redo-ing our bedroom and may call you for help after the New Year.

    ReplyDelete
  49. I absolutely love Elisabeth's room, Joni! It's spectacular. Can't wait for your holiday pics- always a highlight! xo

  50. Simply fabulous. But the best part is the beautiful girl in it! Great job, Mom.

  51. Joni, Would you post a picture of the baskets when you get them? The ones you ordered for the cable box. I am hoping to lose my boxes someday once I can assure Mr. Sportsfan (a distant relative to Mr. Slipper socks...I am sure) there will be no effect on the number of sports channels he receives if we switch to ATT Uverse.

  52. Joni - it looks great - and I especially enjoy your explanation of the process. So often I think folks just click their heels. It's nice to know that there is always a little back and forth.

  53. Absolutely beautiful! Thanks for the details - where and what. It's a gift to know where to splurge and where to purge. You got it going - girl.

  54. Joni, I love,love,love this room.It is impeccably done,but that is no surprise. Elizabeth is so lucky to have such a talented mother. I died when I saw her baby picture,what a little doll and then to see her all grown up,she is a real beauty with a million dollar smile, I can see why Dad has a hard time refusing her anything, she is as beautiful as the room she sleeps in.

    ReplyDelete
  55. The room is beautiful! I had read hints here and there about redoing Elisabeth's room, but had no idea the dramatic transformation that was going on! I am reading this with great interest as we will be decorating my girls' rooms in the new house, and I don't think I have the patience or budget for several make overs x 3! I think going with classic and neutral is the way to go. This is a room that will suit Elisabeth for many years to come.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Just beautiful, Joni! I have to say it was worth the time it took you to make decisions. I've been there myself and I think it's because we just know that there are so many resources and ways to go that it just overwhelms us in our own homes.

  57. Ooops Marc is really Kathysue, I did not realize my son was logged in, sorry, but I am sure he would agree with my comment!!

  58. Joni-I Absolutely adore it-gorgeous. Your daughter is darling. I suspect that when she leaves for college you will be hanging out in there. That's what has happened with my daughter's room that I redid and have renamed the Pagoda bedroom with the Anne Selke canopy bed because it sounded stupid to continue calling it Kate's bedroom when she has had her own apartment for over 2 years. You did a wonderful job of course.

    ReplyDelete
  59. What a beautiful room (love your detailed posts!). That bedding is just especially wonderful to me. She's a lucky girl-- I'm in my 30's and I'm still waiting on a room as lovely as hers at 17!

  62. Wow, Joni, it's so beautiful I don't know what to say... except wow!!! Truthfully, I don't know if I have ever seen a room that I would take "as is," not change a thing, but this is it. It's stunning. I'm forever saying in comments on your blog posts "oh how I wish.."

    FYI: Have you noticed that they are no longer selling your bamboo shades at Target?

    AND, Elisabeth looks beautiful in her new room. I love her darker hair, too!

    ReplyDelete
  63. I think this is my favorite post ever! I have been (stalking) reading your blog for about a year and can so identify with this post. I also have a daughter that is a Senior this year...I just showed her your beautiful photos of Elisabeth's room and she LOVED them!! My daughter has bright colored Pottery Barn bedding--but I think after seeing this beautiful room she might be ready for a change!

    Of course my bedroom is in serious need of a makeover first! My dream would be to have YOU turn my bedroom into one as stunning as Elisabeth's...Santa are you reading???

    ReplyDelete
  64. All I can say is wow! I love EVERYTHING about this room. The tissue white bedding is so textural and sets the tone. I'm in love with the Santos. I could go on and on.....You really are a most talented designer! Your daughter is so cute and stylish. Love the boots!
    She reminds me of my Ashley. Went through all the same decorating phases--I just let her do whatever because she is so willful. Now she wants a mattress on the floor. Period. But, she is living on her own so I don't have to see it! Happy Holidays, Delores

  67. Note: Five yrs. ago I bought a new mattress and boxsprings for my already high off the floor canopy bed - well, the mahoghany step thing I got to enable me to get into it was slippery and one night I fell and hurt myself - I found out that there is now made a 4 inch box springs - works perfectly and no risk of injury!

    Wow: your daughter is one lucky lady - and she is very beautiful and no doubt deserving of such a bower - I can't imagine ever wanting to leave that room.

    As an artist I would immediately want to paint her portrait in the room! Fabulous and done with such love!

  70. A beautiful makeover for your daughter's room and I'm not surprised by the results! It's perfect for a young woman. Of course, while reading I was wondering "did Joni use the Linen Weave paint color?, is that Linen Weave?". So, thanks for posting which paint color you used! Now you will have a few less emails to answer this week!

    ReplyDelete
  71. Joni, I meant to ask - as if you didn't give enought detail, sorry. Would you mind sharing where I can find the curtain rods (of all things!)?

    In the mean time, I'm trying to figure out what I can sell...

    Oh, and I hope you post the color of the silk?

    Thank you so much for ANOTHER amazing post!

  74. Joni,

    It looks so beautiful. What a great room to come home to. My only child, Lucy, just had her 9th birthday. I keep fast forwarding to her leaving for good & think "what will I do?". I'm empathizing with you big time. If the next 9 years go as fast as the last 9 it will be here in a blink.

    Talk soon.

  77. I wondered, as I began to read, how does Joni's house get any better than what is was?! Another lovely room! Your beautiful daughter won't find this in a dorm.....cheers,-susan

  80. Oh Joni, it's gorgeous! We recently painted our master bedroom a French gray. I'm still looking for a bed, and have to paint the dresser, change out the pulls, get a rug and curtains, cushion for the window seat, etc...

    Would you like to come to NJ and do it for me? ;)

    ReplyDelete
  81. Beautiful done, Joni- so professional!
    Remember mine? http://transformationshomestylists.blogspot.com/2009/09/french-way-to-make-bed.html
    We only used what we had (our motto) so it's more styled than designed. But yours is gorgeous! The only thing is, it's so sad that it's empty most of the time ! I'm so excited my daughter is coming home for the holidays! Best, Robin

  85. Hoo-lee-smokes, Joni. I know you wish you had Christmas-y things to post at this time of year, but TRUST ME, this blew all the Christmas tree posts completely out of the water! :) It is gorgeous. And I think it so sweet that Elisabeth has grown to appreciate your input and taste enough to leave it to you **and** to "love it" afterward. It's just beautiful, Joni. You did a fantastic job and all those months really paid off :)

    This room is awesome!

    Love the bed,great choice for the window treatment, the woven shade works well with the sea grass rug & drapes add a softness to the overall space. Great lighting...This room is timeless...You do great work Joni! I'm glad to be an observer... Fay

  88. Joni - It looks so effortlessly put together, not overdone or affected, which is a true achievement! Beautiful. And I love the process of how finding the pillows gave you the 'aha' to pull it all together - so often that detail takes so long to find! Love it all. ~Libby

  95. Sweet post, I love the story of the rooms throughout the years! The final room is just stunning. I love everything about it, everything!

    And why is it that we can easily decorate someone else's home and it takes longer for our own? I can walk into a friend's house and help instantly with window treatments, it's just obvious to me. But in my own home, it takes weeks of back and forth over decisions.

    Have a great day!

    And hooray to you for writing "chaise longue" instead of 'chaise lounge.' I know, I know. I am a terrible language snob but 'chaise lounge' makes me inSANE. :)

  121. P.S. I looked up that beautiful chandelier. It seems that it would hang down pretty low with an 8 ft. ceiling. Do you have a high ceiling in that room? I think it's about 32" tall (if I can recall).

  122. Hi Joni,

    I am your MI twin. I design interiors as well, (you can imagine how great my business is in MI right now,) my Mr. Slipper Socks Man is a commercial bankruptcy Attorney, and, he is Jewish and I am a Christian. I have four kids who have taken all of my money.....Anyways, I am a devoted follower of your blog, and will send you pictures of my very French home when I can figure out how to do it, no haha intended. I am obsessed with all things French, and completely terrified of air travel, but went to Paris by way of Hungary late this summer with my daughter, who is part of the US Figure Skating Team, dream come true on both!! I would love my alter ego to help me achieve your seagrass and slipcover look in my kitchen and family room. Obviously, I have many of the same sources as you, but all too well understand that people think YOUR ideas are free, I intend to pay you for any ideas you might have regarding the update on my home. My living room is perfection, I know you will agree, but I am so intrigued by the Cote de Texas look, and want it in my family room. My home is only 7 years old, plantation shutters, southern and as French as possible, Terra Cotta floors, etc. Let me know if photos and a prepaid brainstorming would work for you. OMG you make me laugh! You have made my life better with your equal obsession with France. I pulled out my last years Christmas items, and I had bought this handmade animal doll (I know it sounds funny!), and she is holding a picture in her tiny suitcase of the Eiffel Tower, and the caption is dream. Never last year did I once see myself in France, or attending a Grand Prix event for my ice dancing daughter who is unbelievably beautiful!

  126. This post REALLY made me laugh as it reminded me of the many decorating dilemmas I have had with my mother over the years (I wanted yellow walls like my favorite power ranger, I lost that battle) The room the Princess did for herself VERY closely resembles what I did when finally given my wings. This redo is really REALLY spectacular. It looks so cozy and fresh and timeless and she looks beautiful in it!

    And how inspiring to learn that all that fabulous does not only come with a big price tag. You have an excellent eye for mixing high-end with bargains. And you have a really great sense of style.

    Well done!

    Happy holidays to you and your wonderful family!

  137. Oh wow! What a wonderful post! I remember when I left for college I asked my mom to redo my room for me. All I said was that I wanted an Anthropology bed spread. I am sitting to this bed spread right now. It meant so much to me that she listed to what I said and fixed my room so perfectly. I absolutely loved every bit of it! I am sure that in a few years your daughter will look back and remember how special it was that you agonized over each detail to make it just perfect for her!

  138. Your daughter's room is so gorgeous...so feminine yet grown up. I know she must "love it"! I do!!!

    I am so happy that you posted this. I just (today) borrowed my friend's Ben Moore fandeck to look for a blue the color of the curtains. I am thinking of repainting my dining room in this color...thoughts or any paint suggestions? As always, I love your slipcovers and seagrass. Beautiful!

  142. Joni, Elisabeth's room is just beautiful. I love everything about it and wanted to do my daughter's room (Rachel Elisabeth!) in a similar design. However, at the last minute, my daughter wanted to go Hollywood glam on me, so we veered off-course. Beautiful job! Have a happy holiday!

    My daughter left for college in Sept. and I still haven't redone her room! The carpet is half pulled out (it's the 3rd floor so I can't decide whether to replace the carpet or refinish the wood).

    You have my sympathies preparing for your beautiful girl to leave for college. I was a mess.

    This is a magnificent post--I believe it's your best feature ever.

    It's personal.
    It's all your pictures--and they are beautiful.
    It's very service-y...and readers can follow all your sources. This is superb.
    Ideas are glam but do-able at all price ranges.
    The neutral colors are so chic. Gold, yes!
    The linens are exquisite.
    The baby picture! Now THAT'S a baby!
    Your lovely daughter looks so happy.
    And she has two angels looking over her--you and the graceful sculpture in her bedroom.
    Thank you for your generosity--but especially for this highly original and personal and creative post.
    It is memorable and magnificent.
    cheers, DIANE

  154. Perfect room for your daughter. Good luck with the college thing. I am trying to get my HS senior daughter to give some more thought to my alma mater, Trinity University in S.A., but Texas seems like the other end of the world to a New York kid. I'll be so happy when this college process is over, and I bet so will you!

    One quick question: Are the doors painted black in this room? Do you have any pics? I would love to see how that looks. I am painting my entire house Benjamin Moore Classic Gray and would love to try to the black doors throughout the house, but am afraid it will be 'too much'
    Any guidance you can give on this would be great!!

    Elisabeth's room is just beautiful! Are the rods Gifer? I have used Gifer and love them, but have had a few installation issues. Love the pleats on the curtains, too! Was there a description...must have missed it...will have to read it again!!! Thank you, as usual, for the most fabulous posts!

    How is the Amazon chandelier in your daughter's room working out? Are you still happy with that purchase? I am debating whether to buy it for my dining room.

I just know that one day you will have your own show ... maybe on HGTV and I will be behind the scenes creating those beautiful window treatments, bedding, and pillows!!!
