Home Tour: Master Suite

Our 1940′s Bungalow Home Tour: The Master Suite Folks, that title is just a wee bit tongue in cheek. I love the term “Master Suite” which to me implies a whole group of rooms, like some princess might have had in her castle. We have a smallish bedroom, and an even smaller bathroom that is […]

Weathered Bentwood Chairs ~ Real Milk Paint

Feature Chairs

An {Almost} Fall Table & Vintage China

Decorate

I’m stuck on my Dining Room It’s past due for a makeover. Last year, I hired an interior designer to help me get out of my super traditional golds-greens-reds color scheme.
