Merritt's Room

When I told my husband that I had ordered a big bed for our 2 year old...I wasn't kidding.

Extra tall upholstered bed with bow tufted headboard in a grainy green linen...from Kravet. Fretwork sheets from Serena & Lily. Duvet and sham from Matouk with my favorite font...Chopstick. Antique Indian elephant.

Settee from junk store...covered in Raoul Textiles' Perada in Plum to match the roman shade.

Settee at antique store before large investment.

Artwork from Ebay. I think I'll tell Merritt that this was her Great Aunt. Lucy. Great Aunt Lucy...who used to streak on the golf course just to get a rise out of the men. Great Aunt Lucy who used to drink gin at breakfast...but only on Saturday. Great Aunt Lucy who ran a small betting ring. At church.

If you don't have a colorful family one from somebody else. On Ebay.
