Dear How to Decorate，burlap pillow cover diy
Myguest bedroom has potential， but it needs your beautiful ideas!I’；m happy to start from scratch， but the one item I love in the room is the duvet cover. My favorite color is any shade of purple， and the duvet has a soft aqua background with lavender ivy. The scroll matches the wooden door and window frames too!
The room is small at 11’；6″； x 11’；6″；canvas throw pillow covers， and the wall color is Sherwin Williams Kilim Beige. The carpet is a cream short shag.
I like a European feel， especially French and Italian. I also love finishes with patina， crystals， mercury glass， mirrors， gold leaf， and painted furniture. Simply said， anything Ballard Designs!
Thank you for your thoughts.
What fun to help you with your French Fantasy Guest Room!
Add drama as you enter the room with the large Louis Mirror in Gold hanging on the opposite wall， accented below with an X-Bench in Suzanne Kasler 13oz Signature Linen in Lavender.
We love the Claudette Headboard in Wood for a grand statement. Paired with Custom Euro Sham in Suzanne Kasler Signature 13 oz. Linen Lavender， Signature Velvet Pillow with Tape Trimin lavender and your animal print pillow， the duvet cover will sing. Bring the luxurious look onto the walls by flanking the window with Signature Velvet Drapery Panels in Lavender. Tuck one or two Kubu Round Baskets at the end of the bed filled with extra blankets and towels —； ready for the unexpected guest!
Updated bedside tables， such as the Louis 3-Drawer Side Table and the Olivia Side Table in Antique Brass， will add welcome storage and glamour. Adding a Paulette Table Lamp， dressed up with a 16” Couture Tapered Drum Shade in Ivory Linen， will add to the French flair.
Any luxury hotel room has a surface for writing， so let’s create your luxury with a small Juliette Desk placed against the wall that faces the bed. Add a Louis Oval Back chair in Suzanne Kasler’；s 13oz Signature Linen in Sky/Blanc Stripe to continue the French influence and to bring out the bluesin the bedding. Hang the Tranquil Pond Giclée above the desk， bringing all of the colors of the room together. A Sophia Table Lamp will add warm lighting on this side of the room.
Add some crystal and mercury glass accents， like a candle， and your room will be guest ready.

One year I was the room mom for my kids class at school. ?For the Holiday party, I needed to come up with an inexpensive, easy, kid-friendly craft- that did not involve food. I searched for school classroom party ideas and didn’t come up with?much. After much thought, I decided that it would be fun for the kids to make their own scarves!
