that's who, with her decorating question's ! Every first Tuesday of the month Betsy has a "oy vey! g&a!"
I have admired Betsy's work for years ever since I picked up her book
'Great Color & Pattern Collection.' I have read and looked at every page a million times, just dreaming of one day having a room as pretty as in the pages I was looking at.
So when I discovered Betsy had a blog and would answer your decorating questions I was ecstatic. I had to muster up the nerve to ask her for help. Betsy has an amazing sense of humor and will hold nothing back, she will tell you like it is (so Betsy I'm ready) I have put on my 1990's shoulder padded jacket and I am ready of ya hehehe. I love Betsy she is so funny and a kick in the pants, and her decorating style touches home with me..
Recently she wrote a post called (How to Create Design with Color and Pattern) I fell in L-O-V-E with her wallpaper! the whole room is so beautiful it really gave me the kick in the old fanny to finally decide on Wallpaper or Bead Board for the bedroom. Betsy asked for photo's so here you go, I have tried to show you all walls and spaces in the room.
The entry into the room is 3 ft wide. Directly when entering the room the master bath is off to the right.
A vintage 1940 chandelier is hanging in the entry, the walls are painted Cozy Cottage by Sherman Williams. Carpet is spanking new just had it installed, my last post I talked about the color of it "Pineapple". Off to the left is a small, cozy, tiny, itsy bittsy sitting room and off to the right is the sleeping area.
There is wallpaper Bead Board now that I think is really cool looking and I love the wallpaper in you your book Great Color & Pattern Collection on page 242.
The sleeping area is 13" x 13' wall to wall.
So Betsy can you "Help" ?
What kind of head board to you see for the room?
Should we wallpaper or use Bead Board through out the entire room or just on a few walls?
Should we change the curtains to binds or plantation shutters?
Is the furniture arrangement right for the room?
Our style is comfortable and casual, vintage and cottage. We love the colors blue, red, yellow, green. Ticking and floral fabric.
So girls please chime on in with any of your suggetions. I can't wait to see what Betsy has to say!
