paris hotel suite...

Springtime in Paris is something I dream about from my own room, or suite as I like to call it, that I try to feather with subtle touches of french inspired items and beautiful vintage furniture while keeping it all shabby and of course romantic...I have left my luggage right as you walk in the suite. Now it is not a true suite ~ it does not have a private bath (yet) but it does have a sitting area...This is one of my favorite tables. We were given an old sewing machine after we were first married and my husband made this table. We just recently painted it a warm white and I love it even more. My french inspired clock from HomeGoods nests in my $8 fabulous frame... I am not sure if you can see the little glass on the table above but among the beautiful etchings has on one side "L'Amour" and on the other "C'est la Vie". I bought this at Brimfield last year. Here let me move it so I can get a better photo... The vintage sewing machine table has a great little place to hold my small collection of one of my favorite magazines... I treated myself to this beautiful white chair and ottoman. You just sink right in...
Look at the subtle rose pattern...Beautiful burlap pillow wishing a good night... I would love to have dreamy white fluffy bedding but for now I am happy with my vintage chenille bed spread with pillow shams from Marshalls and two vintage white throw pillows that were my Moms... Now the "sitting room" I just showed you I think goes with my spring/summer bedding that I just put on. The rest of my suite goes better with my fall/winter bedding which gave me the inspiration for the wall color... I got this duvet cover with two shams on sale at Pottery Barn. By the time spring comes around I am tired of it and vow to not use it next year...we shall see. Our home is where Jim grew up and our bedroom was for him and his three brothers. I am lucky to have such a large room. Here is a good view as you enter the room... My little sitting area would be to your left. The two bureaus and the little chest in between were from my parents. I would love to paint them white! For now I am thinking of painting the little chest white and replacing the rocker with a white chair to bring more white to that side of the room. Let's take a peek at some of the details like this tres chic painting that was my Mom's... The gents are trying to get the ladies attention...I found this lovely bowl for $9.50...Wonderful old lace curtains from my Mom... My Mom's engagement photo and my collection of trinket dishes mixed in with sweet boxes from Michaels... Here is the chair I would love to replace... Then on the other side of my husband's bureau, which holds our flat screen that is not shabby or chic looking, is this little vignette where the collection of my other favorite magazine nests... As we leave my Paris Hotel Suite take a peek in the mirror ~ see the door ~ behind it I hope to have a master bathroom, someday!Linda at Coastal Charm is hosting another Nifty Thrifty Tuesday which I am joining to show off my frame and bowl. I am also going to join in on the fun at My Romantic Home where Cindy will be hosting Show and Tell on Friday. There are more photos, treasures and thrifty finds nested in my suite but I will save them for another day! Thank you for stopping by!

Your sitting area is gorgeous, I love your chair! When you showed the other side of the room with the dark furniture I thought hmmm, I wonder how long before it'll get painted white lol. Everything is beautiful, you have such a great eye for the perfect little details!

Your Paris Hotel Suite is a lovely place. Very calm and relaxing. You have so many wonderful pieces in the room. I love the sewing machine table (and I like it painted white). It's a beautiful space!

So pretty! Love the French inspired decor!

Debbie @ ribbonwoodcottage.blogspot.com said...

Boy everything looks wonderful. I think you did a great job decorating. Love all the touches. YOu have a lot of little extras here and there that I can tell you put a great deal of thought into. I love it when people take the extra time to put things together in a beautiful way~instead of just Generic! You did such a good job with all of it. And I like the bedding the way you have it!
Blessings,
Debbie

Hi Sandi, here goes something,----- my first blog,---- Sarah came out,walked me through this , now am on my way. lol Well, I love all of your site , you are blessed with the written word, the way you tell us your stories are just truly lovey and inviting.

The rocker in your bedroom I would paint white and shabby it add a lovely round cushion to the seat, maybe vintage print with the roses you love so much , the rocker has wonderful lines, it would look stunning that way.. And once you paint all the brown in their, you will be in a WonderLand of White and any thing you choose to add for color will just pop! I love your winter print, so soft, with warmth. I bet it is up lifting in the long winter months to see flowers!!! Can't wait to see more from you. Happy Hunting. Maureen
