I think those are the most beautiful curtains I have ever seen! Infact, the whole room is lovely.

Oh le coquin de chien sur le beau fauteuil clair ! Belle lumière en tout cas et j'aime bien aussi les rideaux en soie ?
Bon week-end,

Gorgeous! I love the curtains against the colouring of the wall, and the chandelier.

Don't worry about the dog, ours likes to sprawl across the méridienne, and he's not nearly as small and manageable as yours.

Katherine March 9, 2013 - 12:53 pm

I like the colours in the room, great combination.

Roxane March 9, 2013 - 1:46 pm

This is a beautiful bedroom Sharon! I love the colors in the luxurious, pouffy curtain fabric & how they tie in with the embroidered fabric on the back & sides of the chair. Of course, Ghetto likes the most comfortable seat in the room!

What a beautiful chair! I can imagine why the (lovely) dog wants to sleep there.
Enjoy your weekend too!
Kind regards from Holland

I just love those curtains! x

Typical family dog, whatever the nationality, it will always choose the best chair especially when the sun is shining through the window. Sharon, I love your painted floor it looks just right with your beautiful silk curtains. A delightful bedroom. Have a great week end.

Thank you all for your kind comments about the room – just a note on the curtains … a couple of people have emailed me questions: yes, they are silk, and I think the reason they hang like that is because they are lined and interlined. All has to be done by hand, long but worthwhile in my humble opinion. I reckon on several hours sewing per curtain. Makes for warm curtains that hang beautifully.

Your curtains are lovely, they look like Dupioni silk. I learned something new today. I had not heard of interlined. This green has been my new favorite color for a while now. Along with the wall color and the touch of pink, gorgeous… And, I don't know what to tell you about that dog. He does make you smile though. I am glad the sun is shining on you today.

He fits right in as part of the decor! Your bedroom is stunning. Love it.
Lovely bed, drapes and floor (and pup)
Have a marvelous weekend.

Catherine March 9, 2013 - 5:06 pm

WOW! What a gorgeous chair. I love the shape and the fabric.

I knew that couldn't be Ghetto sitting on it. He would have been on the naughty step instead of having his picture taken.

Splenderosa March 9, 2013 - 6:09 pm

All of this looks perfect to me. Including the puppy on the chair. Mine would be there too. Yes, those draperies completely send me, and so does all the rest. I can tell you and Trish @ Trouvais have a lot in common. Sending love, Sharon…

Oh my goodness!! This room is STUNNING from A-Z!! I love the floor, rug, chair, curtains, chest, and of course, my darling Ghetto! I love it all!!! I may be behind the times, but I don't think I've seen a chair with the crewel work done on the back like this…it is so good looking as are the curtains! Did you make these curtains? You are so talented that I wouldn't be surprised at all! So glad you got this type rug…timeless!!
Thanks so much for sharing and I know you must be thrilled with the results! Have a nice weekend!

Sarah March 9, 2013 - 7:15 pm

Gorgeous! Dog on creamy upholstered chair. Looks like things around here. 😉
Thanks for sharing all this beauty!

Amelia March 9, 2013 - 7:33 pm

I love gorgeous curtains and admire those silk lined ones you have. Like the weight, drape and the way they fall at the bottom. The perfect room to lazily spend a weekend morning. And Ghetto looks comfy on his lovely perch…:)

Happy weekend!

I would be so happy to relax and read in this room, even with the pup (at my feet of course!).


Yvonne @ StoneGable March 9, 2013 - 9:33 pm

Love the curtains, fabric, color, fall and! Lovely room, including little devil dog! Cynthia

Manon-London March 10, 2013 - 12:09 pm

Well I guess the dog is not allowed on the chair… That's certainly why it sounds so confortable to him!! 🙂

Sopa Azul March 10, 2013 - 12:43 pm

Ohhhh, your dog looks adorable!!! 🙂

Linda Stansbury March 10, 2013 - 1:32 pm

Love your drapes. Lovely room. Lucky dog…

Julie S March 10, 2013 - 1:56 pm

I love the curtains, and the chair fabric is so beautiful. Just one question though – where do the humans sit? Answer – on the floor of course!

The enchanted home March 10, 2013 - 1:59 pm

Gorgeous…I almost feel like I can feel that warm air coming through…such a beautiful setting and your darling pooch is the perfect "accessory"!

freddyandpetunia March 10, 2013 - 3:52 pm

Colleen Taylor March 10, 2013 - 6:05 pm

Everything in this room looks drop dead gorgeous Sharon! The window treatment fabric, the chair, the rug are luscious and even your beautiful dog coordinates to the room! XO

MTGrace March 10, 2013 - 7:16 pm

That chair is STUNNING! I'm completely in love with it.

Love this post!

Karen (Back Road Journal) March 10, 2013 - 8:58 pm

The room is just delightful looking with the sun shining in…a real touch of spring with the lovely tulips. To top it off, you have your cute French dog that obviously loves you good taste in decorating.

noreen March 10, 2013 - 10:24 pm
