I just came across a beautiful new read from North Carolina blogger, Amy Leonard (she just started blogging last week!) called Design DNA. I spotted an image that I just had to share with all of you, it’s this beautiful dressing area with shutters made using antique Indian screens. There is very little I wouldn’t do to have these in my home. I may even turn tricks. (kidding!) Imagine returning from a long day, stepping through doors like these into your dressing area or bedroom? Or, better yet, having these on the front of your house. These are positively grand. I need to seriously stop gazing at this image because it’s driving me nuts that they don’t belong to me! :)

I’ve actually never done this before, but I figured since it’s a new year, why not see what you all think about decor8 before I start planning for ’07 and beyond, right? Your thoughts mean so much to me, so if you have a moment, click here to take an anonymous survey – only 10 questions, short + sweet!
I’d like to add that many of the questions ask for you to answer them in your own words, so please do that and be careful not to skip over them. Thanks!
Thank you so much, I’ll see you tomorrow! :)

I love the bones of this space, and relish the thought of actually having a bedroom with such a dramatic ‘headboard’ such as the one shown here. I do think though that this arch isn’t being used in the best manner – there’s so much more that could be done to really enhance it. Add wallpaper or stencils or decals perhaps, or install impressive lighting, or simply add paint. What would you do to give this arch the respect and attention that it deserves? Or do you prefer it ‘as is’?
