An Attic Bedroom

The attic bedroom is complete. Yay, happy dance!! I was just waiting for the pillows and top sheet from Celeste from TheLittleQuiltShoppe on Etsy. They are so lovely and so beautifully well made. Thank you Celeste!!!

The little box of tiny pretty stationary paper I bought from Jan as MinisbyJan on Etsy.



These beautiful Marie Antoinette slippers and ballet slippers are from Dominique at humptydumptyhouse. They come in little tissue lined boxes. They are so wonderful and I am giving serious consideration to start collecting them. She has so many lovely styles and colours.

 This beautiful dress was made by Kathie, kathiecrisan on Etsy. It is so very delicate. It drapes beautifully over the bed. 


The pink Victorian folder of fashion plates on the floor I received from Monbio. I really need to take some more pictures!


 The cute little bear was made by LugArtPetite. The collection of gorgeous cushions are from Gillian at Jily'slittlegifts. 

The faux hallway has a light in it. The hat and matching clutch purse which has fallen down in this photo are from JustForYou on Etsy. The black and coffee striped boxes are from Manuella at Scarletts45. 



The bed spread is a vintage ladies handkerchief  the embroidery and lace are just perfect. It is too big of course but there was no way I was going to take scissors to it. So the extra is just artfully stuffed down the side. The bed I made using Lea Frisoni's idea from her book. I went for a more simpler traditional cast iron look. Mostly because it was easier!! I put castors on it but it's a little hard to see. 

I think I have given mention to all the wonderfully talented artists I have bought from. If I have missed you let me know and I'll remedy it!!!Everything else though was bought and made, up scaled, bashed, painted, stained and had things done to it by me.

Be well! Carriexx.

  1. It's an absolute delight, I'd love a chance to spend a Sunday afternoon curled up on that lovely bed. I'm definately going to check out all the clever people you mention who made so many lovely things that bring the room to life. And 10/10 on all the up-scaling, bashing, painting and staining etc ;)
