Hello and welcome to Blue Monday hosted by Sally of Smiling Sally. If you go to her blog you can get a list of all the other participants.
Today I'm showing you part one of my Amerciana Bath. I have always loved the Americana look and have collected things in this style for years. I had them packed away in a box since my home is being taking over by the pink and white shabby cottage look. LOL
I took so many pics and it is quite a large room, so much too look at, so I thought it best I break it up into 3 parts.
Here's a closeup of the wallpaper border. My friend Celeste from Celestina Marie Designs helped me to choose a paint color for the walls. Thank you Celeste for the great advise!
I tried to get a pic of each wall in here today and in the next few posts I will put close ups of all the pretties. I have alot of needlework in this room. Some that I treasure.
This bath is in the new part of our pre-civil war home and I designed it after a bath in my Aunt's Victorian home that I would spend a month with every summer when I was growing up. Her home was a treasure trove of beautiful things that all us cottage chic girls are collecting today. My Aunt's was not decorted in the Americana look, her's was pink and white true cottage vintage chic. I just styled the bones of the room like hers. White wainscoting, window molding and corner blocks.
I had always loved the pedestal sinks and was so happy to get one for this bath. My Aunt had one in her old Victorian house too.
The curtains are very old but I still love them. They are Dorothy's Ruffled Orginials from back in the 80's. You just can't find curtains with so many ruffles.
My Aunt's bath had a claw foot tub which I could not talk my husband into. Darn!
