A bird theme emerged starting with my son’s chalk drawing of a finch that I’ve always liked. A large basket placed beside the bed holds extra blankets for cool nights.
The vignette on the armoire includes an antique blue duck covered dish, a gift from my sister, paired with a bird cage acquired at an auction and then repainted. I added a blue bird (it really tweets), a small candle and a little greenery in off-white pottery. All of these items came from other rooms or retrived from storage boxes.
The recently refinished antique rocker found a home in this guest room. A new white table lamp placed on the end table with a few books creates a cozy place to read and relax. Another bird found its way to this corner in a small pillow placed in the rocker. A mirror and breezy white curtains complete this area.
The last accessories are for the desk with my recently completed backsplash desk protector. A bird quote in an inexpensive frame, a small arrangement created by my daughter, another lamp, bird wall art and the desk area is finished.
I’m still looking for an interesting waste basket and a small stool for the desk. I’d love your suggestions for unique options – any ideas?
