A restful place


Jacob's been working hard to finish our bedroom, which has been in the works since Christmas...I now for the first time in four years have a bedroom closet...a place to hang and stack clothes and shoes (especially Jacob's Imelda Marcos-sized collection of footwear). It's been heavenly and has made folding laundry a fun venture - almost.

Over the past week, Jacob's been plastering and painting the walls and fixed up the baseboards, which in a 110-plus-year-old house is akin to a day of puzzling math problems, not a single 90 degree angle to work with, but he's got it done.

Check out my "feature wall" (yes, I watch too many decorating shows on my computer) it's called "lounge singer" and I loved it just based on that's a beautiful muddy grey that seems to go with everything and make everything look more relaxed and stylish....which is exactly the theme I'm going for: Spartan, Simple, Relaxed, Uncluttered, Clean.

I can't wait to sleep in here again.

Next up. Jacob is building us a custom may hang from the ceiling by ropes, or be on stilts or feature cement, but whatever he does it will be beautiful and a pleasure to look at every day.

Did I mention I can't wait to sleep in here again?
