Sitting Room ~ Still dreaming…

I’m still dreaming of a few more ideas to add to this sitting room in our master bedroom before it’s considered ‘complete’.  I would love to find an antique French basket chandelier and I would really like to put hard wood flooring in this space ~ but for now, I will share with you an update since I last posted about painting the bookshelf

We brought the pretty white chairs in this room that used to be in the den. I really liked them in the den but they certainly look pretty in here too!

You can see that I’ve played off of the book paper wall with the muted colors when I decorated.  I love this wall so much and so happy that I did it!

IMG_2226I appreciate all the suggestions that have been made for decorating the bookshelf, it’s been fun to shop for items ~ but honestly, the only thing that I have purchased for the shelf are these knobs from World Market.  Everything else are pieces that I already had. I’m glad I didn’t rush out to ‘find’ new things to bring home because the shelf holds items that I need, like an extra blanket, storage of large photo’s that I keep in this old metal suitcase.  Home and Garden magazines and my collection of old milk glass that I have.  Really all simple pieces, but NO clutter!

This is such a pretty room to look at while I snuggle up in my bed.  I have also seen the kids come and find a quite place for reading.  Appreciate you coming by to see how this little nook is turning out ~ if you know of a pretty chandelier out there, let me know…xoxo, tracie

It looks beautiful. Perfect to snuggle up and read a good book with a cup of tea. Or relaxing after a warm bath.
I love, love, love the wall. I have to admit that when you first showed us, I wasn't sure. But now that the chairs and bookcase are in, its perfect.

O my, Tracey!! When you first said you were redoing this space I couldn't imagine why I thought it was beautiful. You have far exceeded that now, it's just gorgeous!! I LOVE it now, so dreamy.

I love white on white but couldn't live with it being a messy person with dogs and grandchildren. I still think it looks wonderful! Love lilacs too!

This room is so soothing and beautiful. I'm a new visitor, so it's my first time seeing those chairs - they are gorgeous!

Oh Tracie,
Your sitting area looks so divinely chic. Love your walls, I did this same treatment in my shop. I white washed over my pages so they would melt away with subtle pages of calm to the boldness.
Love your book case reminds me of the same effect I have with my cabinet in my kitchen.

I can see the wood, I can see where you want this to go and I am sure you will achieve it soon enough.

Bravo, bravo!
Beauty at its best

Ps, maybe you can pull up the carpets and paint the subfloors as I did to mine :)

Tracie, the chairs are perfect in that room! They frame the cabinet and make such a pretty seating area. Love the simplicity of the milk glass. Everything looks lovely. I have been wanting to put paper on one wall in my sewing room. Think I need to do it! Thanks for sharing with SYC.
hugs,
Jann
