This is a great little job for the blog: a vintage Herendon four poster, black lacquered bed that my client did not want to replace but was purchased when it was en vogue to have suits of furniture that all matched. Slowly but surely she is painting and replacing pieces to modernize the look of her home. I am using Annie Sloan Chalk Paints for the job as well as stencils from Cutting Edge Stencils, so indeed a very different look than her previous Herendon Asian-inspired theme. The client is very happy because we have been able to achieve a very feminine "Marie Antoinette" look without her bedroom feeling heavy and overly "done". Thanks to the simple lines of the once Asian-styled bed, some chalk paints and light, tone on tone stencils have done the trick. This has been one of the best before and afters I have done thus far while living in New Orleans, can't wait to post!
I have to admit that it is February(and almost Mardi Gras for New Orleanians) and already I am failing miserable at my resolutions to write to you followers more often.
I would like to confess that I have seen Bryan Batt twice this week! The first time in the bank on Monday on the way to my job, and the second was tonight! I was in Whole Foods checking out, I wasn't going to tell him
I wish a great weekend to all!
