It's Easy Being Green


Is this girly enough for you? I am getting plants for those pots today. I hope. Lots of flowers are necessary for this sunny window, doncha think?
I love this new color and it is just perfect for bringing Spring a little closer.
 I've got my library adjacent in the bubble tub room which opens up the wall so I can put my bed there. I moved my coffee bar to the other corner. The electrical outlets on either side of the bed are finally working (!!) and the sconces on that wall and their holes have been filled and I have a big space for a big quilt. Sunflowers II.
This chair is painted and stamped with fruit and has tiny fruits dangling from the chair back. Perfect colors.
The bed fabric is a king size sheet from Goodwill, and is made into a duvet with pillows and table cloth to match. I will be putting on the new Shoofly quilt when it gets quilted. Notice I switched out my red headboard cover for the pink one.






The ceiling was also painted, white not green. It was raw pine before and pretty oppressive. Now it is white and sparkling and makes me think COTTAGE.
I really love that look.


I couldn't bear to put nails in the wall to hang the curtains or quilts so the woodwork got them instead. We can easily fill white paint in later when I change my mood. The curtains were hung with scrap string ties. The ceiling fan pulls are what you see in front of the window. 


This room is really a dream come true room for me. I can't believe it took me this long to make it happen.

  2. That is a powerful green; I like it and would like to paint a room this color. Do you have the name of the paint?
    You did a fantastic job redecorating--girlie, artsy, and very sofisticated.

  3. The sunflower quilt is just stunning! I love your green interior, too! Thank you so much for the blog. I dye my own fabric and do mostly pictorial quilts. After finishing a large quilt I sit here searching on Internet for some inspiration for doing something different and your blog came up. I have read all the articles and spent quite a few hours at your blog today. Thank you for all the information and inspiration :-)

  4. The paint color is Sour Apple 91283 from Wal-Mart! It took two coats to cover the white.

  6. I collect hand painted chairs and have purchased three from one artist at a coop gallery in Lafayette Indiana. The third little blue chair we got in San Miguel de Allende Mexico. I am always on the lookout for more, even tho I have NO MORE ROOM for any.

  7. No more room? My husband says there's a 12 step program he wants me to take for that very problem. Not interested.

  21. Melody, I want to move in with you! I, too love this green and the quilt is perfect. NEVER sell this quilt! What a bright, cheery room; makes one want to spend more time in it, though. Terrific and inspirational as well.

    Beautiful.

    I particularly love that you painted the ceiling white. My dh, the woodworker, is one of those men (or is it most men?) who thinks that all wood trim is sacrosanct and must remain unpainted.

    A very Melody room! Perfect.

  33. How could anyone not be happy in a room like this? It is delightful

  34. What a great room! I love the Sunflowers quilt---it's as though you made it just for this room (but I'm pretty sure that I saw it in your booth in Paducah---2001 or 2002.) The pictures should be in a magazine or on a calendar page...

  35. Yes Carol, it was a winner (1st place) at Paducah and Houston both in 2001

  38. Just gorgeous, Melody! A breath of springtime! And that quilt is amazing. I saw it in Houston and was blown away! Amazingly, I painted my room this color when I was a teenager...loved it so much. It is a perfect foil for your artwork.

  39. my six year old daughter just said she wished she could have that quilt in her room! wish i could afford it for her....

  40. It's so happy. I love girlie stuff, but I'd have to kick my husband to the curb to do it.

    What a lovely blog you have. I'll come back.
