We tried to keep the surfaces very clear and get as much stuff put away and out of the space as possible
The closet was the most dramatic transformation. We moved the luggage into our guest room and did a huge clean out of clothes meaning that we were able to put the bureau in the closet. My friend Sarah suggested a curtain to hide the clothes but I don’t mind them too much and I’m looking forward to adding to our frame collection over the next few months. I just ordered some prints so might switch some of the photos out when they come in.
I couldn’t find an original before shot without the headboard so this will have to do 🙂
Jeff and I had been meaning to get this framed since our wedding in 2008 (detail shot further down). Jo-Ann Fabrics was having a 60% off framing sale so we decided to take advantage – it looks SO beautiful and is such a nice daily reminder of our wedding 🙂
Again the before/after of the closet is my most favorite change – it just looks so open and airy now!
The ceramic vases I picked up at a store in Northampton. The beautiful luminaries are from Tabbatha Henry near Stowe, VT – when they’re illuminated they add a touch of romance to the room 🙂
The painting above our bed I bought at the Shelburne Farmer’s Market last summer – thanks to Jo-Ann’s frame sale it can now hang instead of being stuck in a tube 🙂
It’s the view from Mt. Philo in Charlotte, Vermont
Here’s a close up of our wedding register. The painting at the top was done by my Brother and was the cover of our invitation and ceremony program. We had the calligrapher who addressed our envelopes write out our names and the date and then our guests did the rest 🙂 The mat has a blue border which fit just perfectly as blue was the font color of our invitations
This painting was done by my Brother and was a dream he had….pretty cool!
A few parting shots 🙂
Overall I am totally THRILLED by the transformation and every time I pass the room it just makes me feel serene and calm – totally what I was going for 🙂
