Something New in the Tea Rose Bedroom...Part III

*
*
Hello my friends...I hope you're having a fabulous day!
*
Ohhh my...here I am at Part III of "Something New in the Tea Rose Bedroom"! I do hope you're not getting tired of seeing this room! I have shown this room several times on my blog but today I thought I would share a few of the things that decorate the walls of the Tea Rose bedroom. I do believe that this is the first time that I have shown an up-close and personal view. I hope that you enjoy!!!

This is Part III of "Something New in the Tea Rose Bedroom".

The Tea Rose Bedroom

*
As I have stated before...this is my step-daughter's bedroom when she is here with us and it also serves as our guest room.
*
The Tea Rose bedroom is one of my most favorite rooms in our home! I love the "shabby chic...garden chic" decor! It usually never sees many changes...simply because I love it exactly the way it is! I will say though...that this room has evolved over time. The many "layers" that you see are due to additions that have been made over the last few years. I guess what I'm trying to say is...that it's not all "matchy-matchy"...but everything seems to come together in some sort of cohesiveness! Hehe!
*
An Old Tole Tray...Above the Window
*
If you look to the right of the bed (in the photo above)...you will see a window. I have an old tole tray, that I found on one of my antique flea market excursions, hanging above the window!
*
*
*
*
*
As soon as I seen this old metal Tole tray...I knew that it would be perfect for the Tea Rose bedroom!
*
I just love the pretty bouquet of roses in the center of the tray...ohhhh, and that beautiful swirly design around the edge! The paint is nearly worn off...it's "chippy and distressed" at its best!!!
*
*
A small writing desk can be found next to the bed. I refinished this desk...added a few cottagey floral swags to the drawer fronts...new glass knobs...and painted it a creamy white! I also refinished the old rocking chair that I found at a yard sale for just $5...painted it creamy white and recovered it with a beige and olive green toile fabric. You can see more of the rocking chair and desk in Part I of "Something New in the Tea Rose Bedroom".
*
On the wall, just to the left of the desk, you will find a cherub wall shelf...
*
*
I found this plaster cherub wall shelf on ebay. It was white in the beginning...I painted it pink and then used an antiquing glaze over the top. The picture of the pink roses is a "pen and ink" drawing. The little bunny is a gift from a long time friend who has passed on now. She made some of the most beautiful porcelain dolls! She hand painted the beautiful flowers on the bunny's side!
*
Well...not only do I love bunnies...as you can see (I have several in this room)...but I also just adore cherubs and angels!!! Hehe
*
*
I found this plaster relief of cherubs at the antique flea market. It fits perfectly above the closet doors!
*
Directly across from the writing desk is an old piano.
Yes, I do play but must admit that I don't play very often.
*
*
*
*
*
A wall grouping of some of my favorite pieces!
*
I found the three small plates at Hobby Lobby...I just knew that they would be perfect in the Tea Rose bedroom. The plate on the left has a beautiful blue/lavender hydrangea. The plate on the right has a pretty pink rose...and the plate in the center has a frenchy design of tiny pink roses...sooo pretty!!!
*
*
This beautiful piece was a gift from my youngest daughter! I adore it and think of her everytime I see it! I just love the design and shape of the frame...ohhh, and that bouquet of flowers at the top!
*
*
This is a set of old prints that my mama had framed and gave me for my birthday...many, many years ago! I have always adored these...just look at those precious little girls!!!
*
*
*
*
*
Just a view of some of the pretties that decorate the top of the piano.
*
If you would like to see more...check out Part II of "Something New in the Tea Rose Bedroom".
*
*
A crystal candelabra hangs above the writing desk. I love how all the different shaped cyrstals catch the sunlight coming through the window!
*
Do you see the bed and the bed corona in the background?
*
*
A photo of the Tea Rose bed linens.
*
I have had several sweet people mention the wreath that hangs above the
 bed...so I thought I would show a few up-close photos of it.
*
*
I found this beautiful wreath at a local gift shop. I decided to hang it just above the bed. The fabric swag that I wove in and out of the bed corona...seems to frame it beautifully!
*
*
I love the soft pink flowers and little white berries! If you look close, you will also see tiny little seed pearls and lavender glass beads! I have even used this pretty wreath for a table centerpiece! Hehe!
*
*
My Italian Cherubs...
*
I was searching ebay one day when I came across these precious cherubs. They were made in Italy and really are quite unique. They are not plaster but made of vinyl. They feel just like the old vinyl baby dolls! I love, love, LOVE how they are hand painted!!!
*
As soon as I saw them...I knew they would be perfect for adorning the swag on the bed corona!
*
*
I have often remarked...how these sweet little cherubs serenade the dreams of those who sleep here!
*

Chari it is so elegant and feminine. I just adore this pretty and welcoming room you have created with so much love and care. Fabulous job on every detail!

Thanks for your sweet visits earlier this week. I always enjoy seeing a kind comment from you. I bought the oval almond soap at Bed Bath and Beyond. It's been a long time but I'll bet they still have it.

Have a great weekend!

Your home would be like staying at the best bed & breakfast ever. I want to stay in that room, without my littles destroying everything. You my sister have a knack:O)

Gypsy Heart said...

I agree that being in your home would be like staying at an incredible B&B. Everything is so beautiful, warm & welcoming! This room is reflective of your kind personality ~ some whimsy included. You could never wear out your welcome in sharing your home. I think it's great that you feel comfortable doing so!

Have a blessed weekend my friend. I hope it's cooler than it is here ~ :-)

Oh, Chari...I think I spent 15 minutes staring at each picture! What a gorgeous room, so cozy and warm. The colors are just wonderful and all the detail makes it look so professionally done! I think I like the bed corona the best {although I didn't know the name of it until now}. And I really like the tole try and all of your cherubs. Well...there is not one thing I don't like!! lol! Beautiful room!

Chari, I don't know how that room could get any prettier. It is just gorgeous and you just keep adding more wonderful things to it. One of my most favorite rooms ever. Love it. Hugs, Marty

Cindy (Applestone Cottage) said...

Oh Chari,
The room makes me miss you and wish we lived closer! Of course, I am one of the lucky who got to sleep in that gorgeous room! And I studied all the pretties in there and I am just amazed at your attention to details and how perfectly it has all come together!
This is a Woman's and girl's dream bedroom!
I've been busy at the fair and having a blast!
Miss Ya and Hugs too,

Sherry said...

I've been trying to locate the Chris Madden TeaRose bedset in King Size - to no avail. Any ideas where I can find it?

Chari at Happy To Design said...

Hi Sherry...

My friend, thank you so much for stopping by for a visit today! You know, Penneys stopped selling that bedding shortly after I purchased it about 3 yrs. ago. I have never seen it anywhere else. So sorry...that's probably not much help! I sure do wish you the best in locating it though!!!

Warmest wishes,
Chari

Who in their right mind could every tire of seeing a rose room? There is something so magical and lovely about a room that is done with a rose theme! I love this room and all your color choices too! It's beautiful!

Chari, what wonderful treasures are on the walls of this room. I love, love the old metal tray. All of your finds for this room are just perfect. That frame on the picture your daughter gave you is so unique and fabulous. With the pretty cherubs and angels, and all of the soft colors, this is such a heavenly room for your step-daughter and your guests. I'm so glad you linked this post to Favorite Things Sat. laurie
