Bedroom Makeover Take 2.

It's makeover time! I have picked away at the guest room and never really finished it. That room is now also a room for Gaby on the weekends so that got the ball rolling to get things going. And of course, it's headed in a completely different direction than at the outset.

I'm heading to Charlottetown this evening with my sister and hope to pick up some paint for the walls. This is what I'm thinking. I've seen the color and really like it but was also sold by the description!

Hard to believe that as much as I love grey, there isn't a grey room in my house! I'm not decided on any particular fabric just yet but Cashmere is a nice neutral and should work with whichever direction I go.

Speaking of fabric. My samples arrived from Tonic Living! Pretty patterns make me giddy:)

I kind of chuckled when I saw Shellilee's nursery photos for the first time. Apparently we have the same taste in fabric. Several of them were used in her room. Great minds think alike! Isn't Baby M's room beautiful? If you missed it, you can check it out here.

Looking forward to getting some shopping done this evening. It seems it's been forever! I'm also getting new paint for the dining room! I've got the big plans.. stay tuned!


  1. How pathetic is it that I'm giddy over YOUR fabric too?!

    Can't wait to see how it all comes together!

  2. And I'm giddy because YOUR giddy! hehe p.s.LOVE that grey!

  3. Can't wait to see it come together. Love that grey. Great fabrics too!

  4. Hi Jane,
    I have been "lurking" around your blog for awhile, and really enjoy it. Just wondering where the SR paints can be purchased in Charlottetown? I have long admired her colours, but didn't think they were available around here. This possibility has just made my day! Thanks.

  5. Loving that cashmere paint color. Can't wait to see what you do with the room.

  6. Ooh, I've had 2 clients use Cashmere and they LOVE it. It truly is the greatest grey! Looking forward to seeing your guest room.

  7. I love what you've picked! I can't wait to see it all come together. :)

    Can't wait to see how you pull everything together. It's going to look fabulous. Have a fun night with your sister Jane. Cheers!

  14. I do not comment, but after browsing a few of the responses on this page "Bedroom Makeover Take 2.".

    I actually do have some questions for you if it's allright. Is it just me or does it appear like a few of the responses come across like they are coming from brain dead people? :-P And, if you are posting at additional social sites, I'd like to keep up with you.
    Could you list of the complete urls of all your social sites like your Facebook page,

  15. I have used the colour cashmere in our home and love it.... as it is a warm grey and goes well with what ever you put with it. Tonic Living has so many great choices for fabric and Canadian that is online....could it be better....
