Blue Room Decorating


Update on the blue room!

The lamp is the big dipper lamp from CB2 and fortunately I got it while it was on sale! I used to stare at it for long periods of time when it was full price but knew I'd never buy it - and then all of a sudden like it was meant to be, the price dropped right before my birthday! Woo hoo!

What else.... I added the white frame on the wall - that I got from one of my favorite shops in town Jolie Zoe Deux. It was just hanging out on the floor of the shop and I asked if it was for sale. It was already wired to hang and everything. Jan Marie (the shop owner) gave it to me for $10. I love it, its one of my favorite things in the room. The last thing I got was a pillow cover for the pillow sitting on my mid century chair - that was $3.99 on sale from West Elm.

Yesterday I stopped by my favorite antique store, Rutherford Antiques, where Coby (the store owner) hooked me up with some cool looking driftwood that he got at a recent estate sale. He had a few different pieces including a really cool looking twisty one that was a little too large for the space I had in mind. Fortunately I got an equally cool looking smaller one. Wade looked at me like I had seven heads when I showed it to him. He asked me why I was trying to build a forest, ha! The truth is, though, that I started to see driftwood in a lot of home decorating magazines and pictured in blogs a while back and I really like that look! I sort of gave up on it because people were trying to sell this sort of thing for a lot of $$$ and I wasn't into that. Glad I held out! Anyway I took some pictures of the shelf I put it on, but I didn't like the way they came out - I'll wait for some better light and post one soon.

In the meantime, I am still looking for a coffee table! What do you think about the two I posted earlier? Do you think one will look better in this room than the other? Have you seen another coffee table you think will be cool? E-mail or post your thoughts!
