every little thing

hi guys, i hope you’re having a great weekend! it’s really early sunday morning and i’m about to head out for a road trip but wanted to post this real quick. we were busy yesterday building a wardrobe from ikea and painting the headboard. i was going for the gold but liz was totally against it and besides, i already had white high gloss. i was in an easy mood so like many decorating decisions, it was chosen by default which is sometimes best. anyway everything in florida things should be light and airy, n’est pas?

now with the armoire there’s tons of storage with shelves and drawers. and the cream glossy  lacquer doors thrill me!


well this was about as un-memorial day a post i could have done so before i go, want to thank all those who serve or have served in our military. come home safe and soon! have a great day everyone!

    Ever since seeing Carolyn Quartermaine’s studio, I have loved white high gloss paint. I love open and airy things appear and the way the light is reflected across a room. You’re headboard looks perfect!

      Bi there! It was a consignment store in Boca but I have no idea of the name. Since it was vintage it was a random find so I suggest hitting thrift and consignment shops and asking for headboards or digging deep. That’s how I found that one. Good luck! Claudia Ps the next day a blogger found one just like it on eBay!
