My loves! How art thou? I am so excited about today's show and tell. Albertina from Mimosa Lane is obviously a daily read for me and has quickly become a close bloggy friend of mine for many reasons. 1. Her design ideas are genius. 2. I love her name. Seriously Albertina. 3. She loves monograms. 4. She is a beautiful person inside and out. I mean, need I say more? I completely idolize her aesthetic, and I know you will too. I cannot wait for her to show her space off! Go for it Albertina!
Hi, I'm Albertina from Mimosa Lane. I'm thrilled that Lindsay asked me to contribute to her 'My Favorite Room' series. I love Lindsay, her blog, and her fabulous sense of humor and voice. S+S is a daily must read for me (as in one of the few blogs I have to read before I leave the house before 7:15!).
My favorite room is actually my living room but since I have shared that with readers before I wanted to do something different. So here is our master bedroom. I love this Tree of Life fabric. I think it is by Lee Jofa if I remember correctly (I have had it for 8 years!) I wanted a brown and white bedroom with hints of blue. The painting is a figure drawing made by yours truly. I LOVE LOVE having a desk as a bedside table and highly recommend it. ( I took this photo a the height of peony season...sigh!)
Here is a close-up of my desk chair. I I love the font of the initials. My friend Karen helped with this one. She found the font and made it happen.
In front of the bed I have a beautiful mirrored chest where I keep all my baubles (I have a serious addiction to necklaces and earrings). I made that acrylic painting myself! What do you think? too wild? It is really growing on me.
These two slipper chairs are from Crate and Barrel reupholstered in Clarence House fabric. YUM!!! The fabric is amazingly soft. I love my little candle sconces in the middle.
I also have this chaise from Crate and Barrel in the corner. Its awesome to read in and layout clothes when going on a trip. The pillow is from Alexandra Ferguson. I have another one of hers in my study. The small pillow with our initials was hand stitched by a friend of my mom's for our wedding. It is the one the ring bearer took down the isle, so ofcourse it is a prized possession.
Well, there you have it- bits and pieces of my bedroom. Thank you Lindsay for having me! I'm honored.
