Now that we're empty nesters (yep...I can't believe I'm that old either), I've had a desire to redo some of the rooms in the house. I'm starting with Ski's bedroom. It has never reflected his personality since he was away at college when we moved into this house. He loves to travel so I want to do a map wall that is interactive so it will show all the places he has been with pin flags & string. I ordered rolls of 3/8" thick cork from Manton Cork that I'm going to put up on the wall and then cover it with maps. I have 2 vintage French school room maps that I bought in Paris that I want to hang on one of the walls too.
I got some denim, chambray & flax bedding from Restoration Hardware and am making a bedskirt out of a striped denin table cloth that I got on clearance from the Sundance outlet.
This white quilt is A-MAZ-ING and would look so cool with the map wall and denim & white feel I'm going for. That will have to probably be made at a later date though and with a little less pattern- maybe next winter.
I came across these hanging lights from the Etsy site Umbu that I absolutely love. Books are another thing Ski loves so I wanted to include something in his room that references that. That might come in the accessorizing as I have a lot of vintage books.
Now I just have to find/make some window treatments/draperies that work. I saw this idea on pintrest and am thinking i might try stenciling on a couple verses from some poetry he likes and make drapery panels using 2 or 3 different fabrics. I'd also like to incorporate something that represents music as he's very musically talented. The room is pretty small though, so there is going to have to be some editing so that it doesn't feel super busy.
I'm great at planning - execution however...well, I tend to over think things so it takes me F-O-R-E-V-E-R!
