Home Tour: Part 2

Today I am sharing the master bedroom of my friend Julie’s house.  I started yesterday with the guest bedroom.

Her master bedroom is a fantastic mix of traditional elements, vintage finds and elegance.

Over her dresser she created a jewelry frame similar to what I had done a few months ago.  This frame was the original inspiration on how to figure it all out.  I tried my hand at it and then Julie took it two steps further.  First, she added wire in with the twine to give it more strength.  Second, she hung a mirror right in the center which makes it even more functional.

She found the vintage shelf at Brimfield last year with the intention of putting it over her bed.

She has a great sitting area as well.  The bench was actually a present from me, found at an auction last weekend.  The color and size were too good to be true.  band concert, julie visit, julie house 155 

She found the old doors, one here in the corner with pictures on it, the other one behind the dress form on the other side, in the back of her neighbors truck on the way to the dump.  The color is so right on and adds just the right element to the room.  A very lucky find.

I have actually seen her wear this outfit.

  What I like most about this room, besides the obvious beauty of it, is that it is such a great reflection of Julie’s style.

She is one stylin’ chick! 

I just wished she didn’t live FOUR hours away!

Stay warm and safe if you are getting hit with all of this snow and ice like us!

Hey it's "Julie-Betty" here and thanks so much for all the kind compliments! However, Laura failed to mention the gazillion-million phone calls I made to her about feedback for everything from the mirrors, paint color, chandelier, lamps! She was such an asset helping me establish a "vision"! Love you Laura
