I’ve been friends with Ruby for many years now. She is a Bible study teacher and mentor to me and I love her dearly. She is a breast cancer survivor and has had a rough couple of years. She and I have had a lot of fun decorating over the years and I’ve helped her in several rooms of her house and when I left for Birmingham going on 6 years ago, she had done her room in reds and golds, that were so very popular back then.
But, it’s time for change and Ruby was craving something lighter and brighter in her traditional styled bedroom. She found the color strip from Sherwin Williams that has been all the rage in blogland for the last few years and Oyster Bay was chosen for the wall color. It’s soothing and beautiful! I know you are going to love seeing Ruby’s new bedroom and master bath.
That leather chair was an inexpensive find bought 2nd hand and even though it wasn’t her first choice for a chair and ottoman, the colors work fine in here. She will be looking for a rug to anchor the chair.
I met up with her at our favorite fabric store, Fabric and Fringe Warehouse and I already knew she was using that soft blue/green floral, so I looked in the clearance bin to see what was there that might coordinate. I spotted the soft blue with pin dots and those dots just happened to be the exact same colors in the floral, so that was a win-win. The subtle gold leopard print was in the clearance bin too. She had plenty to do shams, pillows and a bed skirt. And it was all on clearance for a great price.
Ruby said this pretty pottery plate was her inspiration for color and I can definitely see why.
She picked up this painting at Homegoods on our shopping spree a few weeks ago and it is perfect in here.
I love Ruby’s new bedroom, don’t you?? You can see she kept her metallic gold ceiling from the old version and it fits in just fine with this one.
Hope you got some great ideas on this one!
