Let's Head West

I've never really liked these Ikea fabric-wrapped wood frames above our bed. I think when we moved in 3 years ago, we didn't know what to do with them so here's where they ended up, and haven't been given a second thought since.

After doing some thinking about the upcoming winter (dark, cold and long) I imagined a rich bright desert vista out my window.
So I ripped off that bland, pale Ikea bummer, joined the two wooden frames to make one large one, and sewed some colorful fabrics together in an organic nature. I enjoy it very much.

Also in need of a change was the armchair in our bedroom. Before, it was also sporting a black and white pillow number. Keeping with the mod Southwest theme, I made this red and orange chevron pillow and tossed on some faux sheepskin. Winter blues be gone! Now I have happy cozy colors in my bedroom.


  1. Among so many wonderful projects, the desert vista really stands out to me. Just AMAZING.

  2. Very nice, I like the color much better!
