We've come a long way from the roll of paper towels we used as a pillow on the first day here. I have loved the Pink Petticoat Pillow from Rachel Ashwell Shabby Chic for ages, and since I could have it shipped here to Florida, it worked out perfectly. It's a little more dusty rose than the Ballet pink that I had expected, but quite lovely all the same.
When working with clients it it really important to measure precisely, both for floor plans and furnishings. Since we only had one visit to this house when we purchased it, I relied on the real estate listing to provide measurements for the living room. Which was subjective to where you stand when you measure. The result is the room was not wide enough for the daybed I purchased to go where I thought it would. I will have to play with location once the rest of the furniture arrives, but it looks like it has to go on this wall in the living room, which is fine as it provides extra seating. Since this house is 2 bedrooms, we need sleeping spaces wherever we can find them. Hence this daybed.....a perfect place for a guest (or me) to snooze)
