Be prepared for the most amazing before and after of a girls dorm room. Before I start let me say that I did buy my girls new comforters and desk supplies for their dorm rooms. Plus one of those super cute little refrigerators and a new umbrella.
This Mom went over the top for her youngest daughter's dorm room. The older daughter, Shelbi, helped shop and set everything up, she cheered with one of my twins. Thought you would want to know the connections, because I feel really special that I know them. One, they are great people and two, they are great designers. Shelbi said I had to give her Mom all the credit. But they both have the eye for design, like mother like daughter is so true here.
Just take a look...
AFTER - yes I had to take a double take too. I think the ceiling was the only thing they didn't change.
faux brick walls, doors, shutter, windows brought in
layers of color and texture
I would take all on-line classes if I had this dorm room.
I love this container thing that they found at an antique store in Abilene, Texas where the college is located.
Here is a glimpse of a party Shelbi helped plan too. A baby shower at a restaurant in Dallas.
Mine is white or ivory creamers. Actually I am done I mean it collecting them. But let me share some of them with you. They make great groupings.
Fill a basket...
or holders for spoons...
My Goodwill creamers, they were someones Grandmother's now mine... .79 cents each for these little beauties below.
Maxxiniesta - thanks TJMaxx
Who would have thought my first newlywed everyday china would be my first piece of the collection.
My favorite GW piece, with pinks and gold touches.
My sweet mother-in-law handed down these super large pitchers. Creamers on steroids.
Both lovely English ladies.
I have a Christmas inspired one, way up high on top of my cabinets. It adds a nice burst of color.
I thought I was done, over, no more collecting and then sigh, this little Scottish wench just called out to me to be taken home. Found her in Louisiana at my Mom's 75th birthday celebration in Breaux Bridge.
I'm done, finished....well maybe. Anyone need to borrow them let me know.
Update on the below creamer, Tanya in her comments below noted ~~
You probably already know this, but the last white pitcher with the crest on the front is the flag from my home province of Nova Scotia, Canada!!! Thanks, Tanya
She is a Canadian cutie! Not Scottish. Adderley Fine Bone China, England Nova Scotia Tartan is the pattern on the bottom of the creamer.
See how I used them with flowers for a bridal shower here and here.
