Manny Rodriguez snapped this photo of my bedroom for the Rue Magazine shoot. Needless to say, we didn’t use it. A little bit sad, right?  Just not working at all.  The lamps aren’t right, and there is a huge void on either side of the sofa–kind of depressing.  This half of my room needed a makeover–stat!  My room is huge, and filling up the space has proven to be a challenge.  I am not a minimalist!

What do you think now?  I found some great vintage bookcases to fill the void, and they also allowed me to unpack all of my books from the garage.  I moved the old lamps to Jane’s spare bedroom at her place where they look much better, and added new ones that were a bit smaller and more modern. Much cozier!

(Notice how the dogs are a permanent accessory on my sofa??  The only time they’re not on my sofa is when they are in my bed.)

I found a pair of these chairs at Again and Again and loved them, but the fabric had to go!  I had this roll of lush raspberry velvet in my garage, and–Voila!!

Now the pair sits at the end of my bed.  Much better!

I hope everyone is having a great Memorial Day weekend!
