Help, I need somebody

I haven’t gotten very far because I haven’t decided what I am going to do with the walls. Should I leave them white? I originally thought about a light blue or grey with crown moulding, but now that I have decided on my lamp…I am unsure which direction to head? I bought this garbage can about 4 years ago at an Antique fair in Sacramento a few years ago, because I absolutely LOVED it. Yes, I fell in love with a garbage can 😉 I don’t really think the lamp and garbage can “go.” I am officially confused. As you can see, Lucy is very upset about my indecisiveness and does not feel like getting off the bed until I make a decision. No…I have not decided on bedding either. Btw…I have ALWAYS loved Pottery Barn’s black frames with white matting…does that “go” with my lamp, can, and bed? Boohoo. I need Thom Filicia to “Dress My Nest!”

I hadn't mentioned that the floor in my bedroom is stained concrete. There's my prized garbage can! ;)

My trusty "new" lamp, minus the shade.

As you can tell, Lucy is very upset that nothing has been accomplished. Notice my photo on the wall, and the ricola's on my side table. ;)

I love… lamp. I love lamp.

Yes, I said I wasn’t looking to create a bedroom which looked like an antique store or museum, but I fell in love with this lamp, and best of all…it was only $40 at a local antique store. This is the lamp shade that came with it, but I don’t particularly care for it. What do you think? Do you have any ideas for a better lamp shade or where I can find one? Now that I have chosen this lamp, what color do you think I should go with my walls, bedspread, etc? I also don’t want to be stuck with a bedroom that is entirely PINK! I want 40’s glam…right, Callie! 🙂

Paris Flea Market

This past weekend one of my dear friends, my mom and I went to the Paris Flea Market which was held directly outside Fleuri’s boutique in Sacramento. It was a great time and we managed to get some great buys. My mom sells her bouquets in the shop. Lucky her….she made money just being there!

It's never too early to shop!

It’s A Start!

If you’ve watched Dress My Nest you know that the person looking to get his/her home redecorated/overhauled has to pick a few of his/her favorite accessories from their wardrobe or any favorite they might have, and they incorporate that into their living space.

Since I’m in the beginning phase, I thought about everything in my house that I absolutely love and get the best compliments from. It didn’t take me long and hard to realize I love STUDS! I mean that’s a given-hot ones, tall ones, funny ones, dark haired…ok, ok off topic. Here’s what I found 🙂

Here are my Isabella Fiore handbags that I absolutely LOVE!!!!

I just realized my little bag has studs too. I’ve had this for close to two years…didn’t even notice!

And my cute shoes! I just looked in my closet….and I found more shoes with studs. It’s an evil addiction I have going on here!!!

If you couldn’t tell, I am in love with this bench that I prop everything on top of. I would like to add some *glam* to my room, as this piece is fab!

Oh and I’m also on a mission. I was thinking of doing all white bedding, but having a large labrador retriever as my roommate makes that rather impractical. I know, I know, I know I say I’m not obsessed with The Hills…but I just love this ribbon quilt Lauren has! In the photo with Audrina it’s shown as her bedding, and in the photo with Lauren, it’s displayed as a pillow. Brocade Home is no longer up and running 😦 so I have no idea where to find this bedding anymore. Any ideas??????

I’m glad I have finally chosen my favorite accessories….now is the tough part, incorporating them all! I don’t know how!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Any takers????? 🙂

Decor Assistance Needed!!!!

Please, please, please assist me in the decor department! Remember I got this bed this past weekend…..

and this mirror

and I’ve had this rack for the last few months…..

What should I do with the rack? I’m going to a wedding on Saturday, and if I’m not too *tired* from Saturday, I’m hoping to get my bedroom together on Sunday. Should I get rid of the rack? If I keep it I’m not sure what I’d put on it, as now that I have this bed and mirror, my tuscan stuff no longer goes! Decisions, decisions!!!!!!
