Headboard achievement unlocked

Finally we got a headboard for the master bedroom. I wanted something with words on it, but not silly words like "dream" or "love". So this has the names of tea. I like tea.I got it from here, where you can get any upholstered thing in any of the fabrics. The silver and brass Moroccan mirrors on either side are souvenirs from Marrakesh where if I ever return I will buy the whole city.

There has been a long delay between my last post and this one due to several new additions. Not to the house...to the family:
They arrived a bit early in late January and are doing fine.
This event did result in the creation of the nursery.
Before it looked like this:
Here it is ready to paint.
Note also the (mostly busted) reproduction lighting:
There was a shark drawn in pencil on the corner of the wall:
This is the nice new lighting from Restoration Hardware:
Here it is all in butter yellow. Crib is from Target.
The changing table is actually an Ikea kitchen island. Note: double changing pads for twins!
The greatest thing about this room is all the built ins- plenty of shelving. Also featured in this picture: plush dog, tripod lighting, cat asleep on a pillow by the window:
The next phase is to put up art. We have some prints of dragons by Ron Rodecker to frame and put up. From now on I will try to update this blog in the usual at least once per month fashion!
