I love Pottery Barn.............I love browsing through the catalogs, I love searching the website, and I adore shopping in their stores.
Their style is my style. I love an eclectic, collected look, mixing the new with the old. I get inspiration seeing the way they set up rooms and displays, doing just that. Being an antique dealer means I always have an assortment of collected items just waiting for their next location.
If you have been following our blog, you'll know that I have been working on my Master Bedroom Makeover for quite some time. Take a look at these posts. Since I'm doing it on a budget, using some of what I already have, and only adding or replacing what I really need to, it is taking me a while to get it right. I never just go out and purchase "a new look." What fun would that be? I love to try using what I already have (sometimes I steal from other rooms).
That said.........Karli took me to a Pottery Barn store just before Christmas and I finally found the bedding I had dreamed of for our bedroom. I found their Pick-Stitch Quilt and Pillow Shams in white to be exactly the look and feel I wanted...... washable cotton with the look of a vintage quilt, yet stitched in a more modern design. They were on sale so they went home with me. The weight of this quilt is perfect too. I could not be happier.
I am still trying to figure out what I want at the end of the bed, (a throw or quilt) but I have not found it yet. The final reveal of the Master Bedroom is yet to come.
But, I am moving on to a new look for the top of the armoire. It used to look like this........
After the new gray paint, I changed it to the style shown in the picture below. I was trying to add some white, going for a more feminine look. This was OK but it really wasn't right with the more Arts and Crafts look of the armoire.
We'll call this Look #1: Shabby White Frames
Now for some new "Pottery Barn Inspired Looks." I am taking things from other parts of the house and "trying" them out on the top of the armoire.....trying to get that "Pottery Barn" look.
Look #2: Ceiling Tin
Look #3: Framed Driftwood
Look #4: Framed Metal
Look #5: Vintage Landscapes
I actually love several of these "looks" and I am having a difficult time deciding which one is best.
I could use your help! What do you think? Leave me a comment and let me know which you like best. One winner will be chosen at random on February 1st to receive a $20 Pottery Barn gift card.*** (UPDATE---the winner was selected on February 1, 2014. The drawing is now closed)
I'll be waiting...Kandy
