Detail over bed

 

I used a standard towel ring to hang the shell above the bed. I mounted it upside down and also ran the canopy net through it. We hurried to be ready for the Tour of Homes and a photo shoot for the Southern Living Jan. 2009 issue. My assistant, Anna Speir, and I did the " Wild Whirlwind Thing" to pull it all together and when Diane came home she was thrilled to see the magic. . I especially love the bath room upstairs. ( downstairs bath not shown in these photos) Every time I walk upstairs the room makes me smile. We covered an old chaise from Fish Camp Cottage with a vintage Peacock bedspread and Bellamy, the artist, contributed her magic above the chaise and throughout the house to make it a serene and whimsical home. The house is being sold furnished for the most part and it may even become a Mermaid Cottage Vacation Rental.
