Here's a project I did months ago but haven't yet posted. For several years, I'd fantasized about this inspiration photo :
And when I found these drapes at Ikea (mariam green $20), I was thrilled. Though the ceilings aren't nearly so high and my book collection isn't as extensive, I think that my little room captures the spirit of my inspiration pretty well.
Here is a gratuitous photo of Toulouse guarding Carybdis.
And my new arrangement of greenery/mirror. (I redistributed the white mirror collage around the apartment and hung matching green drapes on the opposite wall but that's a post for the future.)
I'm awaiting a little fountain that I'll snuggle into the plants in this corner; it'll make a pretty place for my meditation and yoga. Ignore the power strip under the window. It leads to the stringed lights and I haven't yet attached it to the bottom of the little table. When I post photos of my fountain oasis, it will be fixed.
Cheers! Leave me a comment if you like it!
