>This year I’m starting at the opposite end of the house from last year.
and if I get my timing right, we’ll end up at the rumpus room just in time for BooMama’s House Tour on the 15th.
this is my bedroom, which goes slightly Victorian, slightly shabby chic for Christmas.
There’s a lot of cream stuff, silver, crystal [ and glass and plastic pretending to be crystal ] and lace, some touches of burgundy against the backdrop of the green walls. Bedlinen gets changed for burgundy – although still with cream lace for the top layer of pillows – and even though you can’t see it, I know it’s there!!
There are hunter green-and-burgundy plaid bows tied in strategic places, like on my gooseneck bedside light.**
and see – I told you – burgundy sheets
Of course there’s a tree – and because it’s my room – it has vintage bell knitting needle gauges, an ivory needle case, antique silver [and not-so-antique-nor-silver ] scissors, although I’ve left the bellydance coins off this year.
**Actually this is an official Catsmum Christmas Decorating Rule : if it sits still long enough, tie a big bow on it. This applies equally to light fittings and fixtures, chairs, corners of tablecloths, bed ends, cats, dogs, goats and visitors.
