I’ve posted about my mom’s guest room before (see it here) but she just had it repainted the most soothing color. It’s like a pale celery/greenish/grayish non-color that I love. It’s one of those rooms you walk into and say “Oh love this room” instead of “Oh love this paint color” you know what I mean? Sometimes a subtle paint color can make a big impact.
Plus I have to share my mom’s knack for finding the cutest accessories. So cute that I want to steal them for my own house.
Side note: She has this knack with cute shoes as well, but of course she has to be totally unhelpful and have tiny cute feet. Which does not stop me from trying to smash my big boat feet into them every once in a while. I have it down to a science, basically I can handle about 4 hours in a pair of her open toe shoes without losing all circulation to my feet. Any longer than that and I’d probably be crippled for life.
Ok sorry, shoe tangent! But is this not the most perfect chippy old little chair? And the little boat pillow! And hello cute little pelican friend that would look great in my bedroom?!
Right? I should totally steal them, ahem except she reads my blog, so now she will know where they disappeared. So we should also definitely not talk about the basket I recently swiped that is currently hanging out on my coffee table – whoops!
You may remember from the last post that this is my old bedding from Pottery Barn in here.
The paint color is called Italian Ice and my mom could not remember the brand name (sorry not helpful, I know!) so I’ll include a pic of the top of the paint can.
She found the chair and pillow at a local store in Hastings, Michigan called Blue Bird on the Moon. They have tons of cute stuff and come to think of it the lake sign is from there too.
We are pretty much regulars over there.
I just want to mention a quick thanks for all the kind comments on my last post! It was great to be welcomed back so warmly AND I do plan on returning the 30,000 emails and comments that I have been ignoring the past month by the end of the weekend. SO check your inboxes soon if you are waiting on me :)
