New Decor, celebrate Mom & Baby!

I have been working on some decor for a baby shower. The color theme is black and soft pink. I really enjoyed this order as the colors are delightful. The first item is a crown for the new mom. A vintage pink jewel is displayed front and center on a paper medallion.
There are ribbons, tiny flowers, and glittery letters on this crown.

This bunting has quite a few flags of pink, black and white that spell out the baby's name in silver glitter. A journal/guestbook/photo album is embellished with vintage wallpaper, ribbon, and a little bling! A little redecorating has been going on at Pink Heaven. The sitting room has a fresh coat of soft blue paint, furniture has been recovered, and a new coffee table is afoot! The room isn't finished yet. I'm still waiting for two french chairs with whitewashed arms and white cane backs. I'm also sewing window treatments, so I better get to work!

I chose a creamy white embossed fabric for the couch. The chair is a blue and taupe damask fabric.
A white pumpkin is added to a side table for a little seasonal decor.
Love how the mirrors look on the icy blue walls.

Blessings, Ele

Ele, I really, really love the new sofa and the walls color together. It's looking fabulous, sweetpea!! Everything for the shower is adorable also. I've got the wiring to make some crowns and I'll be doing those next week sometime. I can't wait to get one made. The one you made is delightful, honey.

Your sitting room is charming! I have that very same coffee table. I found it (brand new) at the Goodwill (a few years ago) and was thrilled. Your couch is lovely, great fabric.

EYE CANDY, ALL OF IT! I would never have thought of pink and black for a baby shower, but it's absolutely beautiful! Just enough black to accentuate the soft pink! The crown? WOW! Your baby items are amazing. And speaking of amazing - the new look in your room is exactly that. That fabric you chose for the sofa is lovely! I always feel as tho' you will think I'm just 'gushing' when I comment, but Ele, I really enjoy seeing all your pretties!

Sandy said...

Ele, I think I have that same spider web in my house only I think mine might be real as I have neglected dusting this week!

Your room is pulling together nicely, the sofa fabric looks curl up cozy!

Blue can be a tricky color to work with so it doesn't go too baby or too crayola, your is the perfect shade. I can't wait to see the final result. Happy decorating!

Fleur de Bee said...

Your baby items are absolutely gorgeous!

Lizzie said...

I have one of those chairs in your living room that have the sort of "seashell" shape to the back, too! I saw one on the cover of Victoria Magazine years ago, and just knew I had to have one. :-) Such a romantic shape for a chair, yes? I love the colors you hose for your living room redo- very ethereal. Such a soothing place to unwind, or entertain.

Oooh my gosh....the more I read your blog the more remarkable items I find that you create. You are a wonder. Thank you for your sweet comments in my blog. Pink skates you say...well take a pair and paint them...I think you could still use them to skate an old pair and transform them before you start on a new pair that you will actually use. May all your dreams come true.
With all good wishes for a LOVELY THANKSGIVING FOR YOU!!
