Readers' Rooms

Have you seen Rhonda's bedroom contest at All The Best? You must check it out. The rooms are beautiful, and even better, one of my readers has a room in the contest.



Marybeth Reid from Dallas, Texas. You may know Marybeth as the reader who tipped me off to the striped brown fabric. I e-mailed her full of questions, of which, one was if she was a decorator. She very humbly said she had a small decorating business.

(This gives you a little bit closer view)
I think her room is absolutely beautiful. Marybeth has lived all over the world and I think it shows in her table top collections. I love the layers.


Another picture from her bedroom shows part of her fabulous art collection. These pictures were neither styled by a professional nor taken by a professional photographer, but they could easily be in House Beautiful. I asked her to hop in her car and drive on over to N.C. to help me. I feel sure she will be here any minute. Even better? I have more pictures of her beautiful home to share tomorrow. Be sure to come back for more.


If Marybeth's bedroom looks like House Beautiful, this next room from Danielle Biglin could be in Domino. Danielle loved Kelly Wearstler's Imperial Trellis and wanted to wallpaper her bedroom. Because of cost she looked for other options and found the perfect solution at Home Goods.


Imperial trellis sheets and duvet cover. I love the contrast with the print at the foot of the bed. It is unexpected and young looking. Love it! Danielle, we may need to see more of your bedroom!

Aren't my readers talented? I love looking at design magazines, but even better is seeing how real people live and decorate. Marybeth and Danielle, thank you for sharing!!!

Don't forget to check out the Bedroom Contest at All The Best. Also, be sure to read the list of judges, very impressive!!

  9. Hi there Sissy,
    Thanks for posting my bedroom. As for the photos I sent last night for you to use tomorrow...my daughter Lucy begged me not to let you post them. She has volunteered to come over to my house this afternoon with her spiffy camera and take a few shots. You can trust her to do a better job than I did. I will send Lucy's photos through to you later.

    I love the trellis/floral combo too. How about HomeGoods? Love it.
    thanks.

  14. Christine, Thanks!! The blanket at the end of my bed is one I made. The pattern is called Gothic-Rose Turquoise and you can check it out on WWW.EasterAvenueCompany.com.

  15. Believe it or not. The interior of my entire house is painted with Ben Moore OC-131. It reads more white on the walls, trim, and ceiling than it does on the color chart. Texas has blanching light, that affects the way a color reads as well.
    Good luck with your color search.
