a while ago, while snooping on pinterest, this wallpaper popped up. my heart fluttered. i actually think i blushed. i knew i had to have it in our islamorada home but it was a little much for every room i thought of. the decor is super light and airy there. the flamingos are heavy…and more orange than pink…

but, as any great designer knows…if you can’t stop thinking about something for months…just buy it. you will make it work. here’s a little history of the master bedroom…original pic when we bought it….lovely, but not very tropical.

i basially ripped up the carpet, added “weathered” looking flooring, took down the drapes, and painted the walls white…but it wasn’t homey or cozy like the other rooms…

(sorry bed’s not made)

the flamingos were calling to be hung on the wall  behind these two headboards BUT the sofa we had picked for that room kind of clashed with the ‘ole birds…

again, i relied on myintense  infatuation and trusted it would all gel in the end….here we goooooo!

added new brown pattern “member’s only sheets” found at HOBO’s discount home store…tied the sofa and the paper together…

details…

also pulled the pillows from the sofa for the beds…

 

im thrilled. lesson here…if you truly love it. it will work.

 

 

love,
