Blue + Tan Fabrics for the Boy Room

Whit’s room has been a bit of a revolving door of furniture since he never actually used the room until this past August.  Since he moved in, I have yet again been tweaking things here and there to make it perfect for him.  In addition to the new rug and new-to-him chair, I also finally pitched the burlap euro shams.   When I first changed his crib out for a bed, I had two junk store find tables used on either side of the bed.  They were mismatched and in pretty bad shape, so I painted the tops and skirted them in burlap. Hence, the matching burlap euro shames.  Since then my love of burlap has waned.  (Good thing it was so cheap to start with, right?!)  It’s itchy and really not the best bedding wise unless, of course, the room’s occupant never sleeps there.  After a very laid-back, months long search for a complimentary fabric to what he already had, I finally fell in love with a simple star print.  It was quickly kid approved and we shipped it straight to Mother to make new covers for his euro shams!

The new fabric is really inexpensive and by one of my favorite brands for projects like this – Premier Prints.  I chose the Mini Star in the White / Canal colorway.   It is trimmed in Jackson in the Canal colorway.

He has a couple of sheet sets but this chocolate ticking stripe is our favorite.  It was from Pottery Barn a few years ago.  I made the buffalo check shams out of fabric from Ikea.

The last thing I have to share in here is his new art over the bed.   You can find the most recent update on his room in this post.

While in the Williamsburg area, we enjoyed a luxurious stay at the Williamsburg Inn.  Located right in the heart of Colonial Williamsburg, we couldn’t have asked for more from the Williamsburg Inn outside of more time to soak it all in.  We were greeted with sparkling cider for the kids and champagne for the adults… Read More

The Historic Triangle {Jamestown}

We spent our last day of our trip touring the Jamestown Colonial National Historical Park.  We originally planned to continue at Colonial Williamsburg but I am so glad that we took the day to do this instead.  We all enjoyed it (particularly the adults) and it was one of Honey’s favorite things we did. The Colonial… Read More

The Historic Triangle {Colonial Williamsburg}

After leaving Mount Vernon, we hit rush hour traffic out of the city.  Whew!  That for sure rivals Atlanta.  We eventually made it to Colonial Williamsburg just in time to check in at the Williamsburg Inn and head to dinner Thursday night.   We spent the whole day Friday enjoying Colonial Williamsburg, before departing after breakfast… Read More

Dixie Delights in D.C. {The Willard InterContinental}

We stayed at the beautiful and storied Willard InterContinental while in Washington D.C.
