going by the book

bon soir mes amis! i’m trying to do what i say so i shot around the house and broke out my manuscript.

i haven’t done much decorating other than to get this orchid and the comforter. but they both make me happy. it’s the little things, right?

this bikini oar is still not hung in the bath and it’s the easiest thing i’ll ever do, why do i put it off? ok tomorrow for sure.  i may even be in a little rut, wondering what my next move is. i see with the sofa and pillows what a challenge every decision can be.

so this is just between us but below is the intro to the book, boudoir moderne which i wrote long ago.  i never shot it so it’s been under wraps all this time. now that i re-read it,  maybe i need to take my own advice.

well at least i got the flowers and sheets. now, what’s my current style?

ok  that’s it for tonite, i’ll post some more if you’re into it. till then, sweet dreams!

    I’ve been stressed out over a bedroom project too but after reading your introduction I feel much more confident :) I just applied a fresh coat of paint earlier today and I’m hoping that my bedroom can make the transformation from blah to boudoir! Love all the pictures of your house thus far

    It’s so generous of you to share your book. I am very much looking forward to being inspired by you. It is difficult to decorate, I think, with other people living with you. I will be coming here for help. Thank you so much.
