Our Bedroom assembled over time

For the summer I have changed my bedding to white and mixed up with gold pillows...my new favorite colors.  The trick with white bedding is to make sure it doesn't look too boring, thus need to surround it with the right colors to get the look you want.  It makes it easier to mix up colors when the bedding is white and it is almost like a blank canvas.

I bought the gold pillows at different times and at different places.  Bought the Gold Suzani pillow in Toronto during my recent visit, the Ikat gold pillow is from Home Goods and the Gold pillow with a Rickshaw is from World Market purchased when in California.  When you put all the pillows together, you realize that there are so many different Golds!

From my previous posts, you know I love art and that is ethnic art work.  In Sri Lanka, there are artists who sell their fare around parks on week-ends.  Bought this art work from one of the artists in such hurry on our way to the airport.  I am so glad I did as I draw my color inspirations from this art.

So here are pictures of our bedroom assembled over time. 

 

All the mothers out there, wouldn't you agree with the quote...I think about my kids (aka adults) everyday!

 


 


 

Our lives are so hectic, I wanted a calming effect for our bedroom.  The wall paint color is Silver Sage from Restoration Hardware.  Love the color, it reads, blue, green and grey depending on the time, sun and lights.

Travel for a wedding to Milwaukee…the beer country!


My cousins' son got married in July and they hosted the wedding in a unique venue, Mitchell Park Conservatory in Milwaukee.  2014 is the year of the weddings for our family thus travel to places that we never had on a bucket list.  A few pictures from the wedding and local Architecture.






 
Major League Brewery town!  What fun way to drink beer?  Pedal Taverns on the road that you can hop in and hop out!
 

 I always imagined Milwaukee to be an industrial, beer making town, but today we find it’s beauty!  These houses are located on the shores of Lake Michigan.  Looking at these houses and some of the old buildings around town, I realize that Milwaukee is rich in history and culture.   







Imagine the view over Lake Michigan.

 
There is no town that gets left out without me scoping out Interior Design stores, Art Galleries and markets…

Bridal Shower Inspiration - tons of tiny thoughtful details

There is no better reason to get together than to celebrate and honor the soon to be Mrs!  I was invited to a Bridal shower of a good friends' daughter and it was a fun afternoon.  The mother of the bride decorated their house with a cottage meet glam theme (my assumption!).  Here is for you to ohhh and ahh over some pictures.  Note to self, need to take better pictures...

The bride to be is a lovely, down to earth girl who deserves this and more!

The mother had ordered the table cloth and the gold runner from the net.

 
Did you notice the little jar with honey and the "meant to be" label.  Only the bottle of honey was purchased, but the label, burlap cover, the little bee all done by the mother of the bride...what talent!  Tiny thoughtful details made the difference.





The flower arrangements were exceptionally gorgeous.  Lots of flowers in all different containers, glasses, bottles, vases, tea cups etc.


 
 

What a bright idea to meet the bridesmaids right as you enter.



 Party highlights - Tasty food, food presentation, framed labels, dessert table, plants, flowers, white birdcage candles and the list goes on.
