Happy Friday!!

Happy Friday!  You know what would make my day even happier?  If someone bought these twin bed frames and then put together the following room and took pictures of it and sent it my way.

The headboards are unique, fun 60’s and they would be truly killer in a room.  Statement piece!  They are available in Los Gatos if you are local.  I have no need for twin beds; I don’t have two kids or a king size bed but I am SERIOUSLY considering handing the seller cash in exchange for the pleasure of storing the headboards in my mom’s garage for my “one day home.”  Alas, hoarding is not encouraged over at Storage de Casa Imwalle so I must put it out there on the Internets.  Available here.

Little girls room….

Take those headboards and then cover the entire room and ceiling in this wallpaper:

It’s Katie Ridder; it’s fabulous – so are you.  Join forever.

Put in some sweet lavender Laura Ashley bedding (because this is a girls room) but mix up the bedding with whites, monograms and perhaps a textured indigo tie-dyed throw for interest.

How about a classic seagrass for the floor and maybe a little sheep skin to keep those tosies from getting hurt.

And lets do a rattan pendant.  (Sadly, this one is no longer available, was from Z Gallerie for like pennies)…

Happy Friday!  Now get on out there and design this little room for me in my head.  Or hire me and I’ll do it for you. 🙂  OR take a look at a room that inspires the little bejeezers out of my kiddie room…

I pulled off the first correct somersault of my life when I saw this room.  It inspires.  Angie Hranowsky can do no wrong.  No wrong!  And she’s my cousin’s close friend.  Julia…did you shoot this?  I mean, weekly, I think about hopping on a plane to Charleston to go shopping with them.  Hopefully sometime I can finaggle a “business” trip out there.

    Kate. would those twin bed headboards work at the ranch (downstairs) or at Shasta? What are they made out of? It is a very cute little girls room.Mom

      Oh my goodness, you could make my dream come true. 🙂 We could create this room at either place.

    Great post, Kate! Wish I could have those headboards for my kids rooms, but hoarding and flying things across the country aren’t encouraged in my household right now either…. I did not photograph the kid’s room designed by Angie that just appeared in Lonny. However, I have photographed the room specifically for Angie and it has another side with an adorable sofa and zebra rug that is fantastic! With her permission, I’ll send you some more pics of the whole room next week.
