Darjeeling Decisions

Before pictures.

Out with the old and in with the new …

Over the past week and a half, we have been redecorating the Darjeeling Room. (All of our rooms are named after teas, though I’ll confess, the tea-theme does not carry over to the decor.) We changed the wall color from a pure white –  to a very pale blue-green shade called Morning Breeze. (The shadows in the before picture don’t quite allow one to fully appreciate the change.) The bathroom is now white and a blue-green called Holly Glen which replaces the dark Admiralty Blue that used to be on the upper wall areas. We are going for a more contemporary and airy look than we had with the previous decor and are very happy with how the room is turning out. (I’ll be updating the photos on our website soon.)

We purchased new bedding, curtains and lighting. The only thing left is putting artwork on the walls.

Sometimes, I reach a point at which I just can’t make any more decisions. I picked the two pictures below for the walls, and … then got stuck. I choose these because I like them and I thought that they fit with the overall look for which we are aiming. Then I realized that they both related to the Darjeeling Room because it looks out at the front garden and also on the crab apple tree on the East side of the house.

I’ll wait to see how these look framed and hung; and then, I trust, inspiration shall walk in to help me take it from there. (Oh, I’m so excited about the new look!)

    • I might just have to do that. Thank you for the suggestion! We do have teas out for people to help themselves to whenever they want : )

      • It’s easy to find pretty teapots at yard sales and thrift shops. I really like the new colors and the bedding (pillows) are very pretty.

    • Thank you. It seemed like everything went wrong at first with discontinued fabrics and whatnot, but its coming together : )
