SHABBY ROSE DREAMS IN 88 STEPS!

Do you remember in my last post I referred to the 88 steps? Well, as silly and corny as it may be, when you enter the front door to my home, it is 88 steps to this new redesigned guest room. The last bedroom of the house, on the second floor. A room with a view, a reflection of my on line shoppes, an extension of my studio and a rose retreat for dreaming and moments of the heart. I know, 88 steps, kind of silly huh?

This was a really fun room to design like no other in my home. But, it works because of the location, set apart and far off from the rest of the rooms. One pretty spot to relax, read, plan and even paint on occasion, all while being a useful room for visitors.

Decorated with vintage treasures from my childhood home, gifts and found pretties all coming together to complete the final style. The furniture was all painted in a raw cotton against a background of light pale ballerina pink for the walls. White lace treats the windows in a pattern that reflects old world.

Thank you for stopping by to view my pink dreams. WELCOME!!
Down the long hall we walk, rounding out the last steps to the door with the wreath.

















Color palette for this room.


The final details and treasures from family and friends. The 3 tier cake plate is from my sweet painting friend, Lorri. The cupcakes on the tiers are made by Jenn of Jennifer's Petal Palace. The plate topper rose box is made by Connie of Living Beautifully. The white porcelain rose in the header was a gift from Lorri too. The cupcake canvas painted by Amy from Bunny Rose Cottage. The cross stitch pillow in the tea cup, made by Stephanie from Angelic Accents.






Little pink rocker from my childhood. The aqua hanging nest on shelf, handmade by Shirl of Shirl's Cottage.





Hand painted roses on the ceiling fan. Hankie box. Vintage cup with a hankie napkin. These hankerchief's were my Father's. Heart box made by Bertie of Aunt May's Cottage. Bed quilt details.





Art work around the room.










The above angel was a sweet gift from my friend Lorri. The tea cup is from Vickie from Visuals by Vickie. The pillow is from Shabby Cats and Roses on ebay.

Thank you for stopping by and staying for this long post. There are just too many treasures to share so I will save them for another post, or maybe I should join Pink Saturday. So glad to have recovered from my yearly big decorating bug. Now it is on to new fun in the studio and lots on the drawing board there. Till next time, Blessings Always~~ Celestina Marie

It looks like it is straight out of a magazine! What a girl's dream come true- all that pink and roses. It turned out really beautiful and I love how the bed has changed walls- makes the room look entirely different. Hugs and kisses to you all! Miss ya!

What a beautiful, welcoming room. You may get visitors that don't want to leave, or like me, that have them come back every year.(smile)
You have been one busy girl! You can tell you put a lot of love, time and energy into this room.
You may want to just go up and sit awhile and enjoy the fruits of your labor. You deserve it.

rosechicfriends said...

Oh Sweet Celeste!
That is simply the most dreamy room ever!!!

You have inspired me to get going on my downstairs room that badly needs done...it has stuff left in there from when I did my craft room last spring. So I think in the next few weeks I might have to borrow an idea or 2 from you!!! lol.
I espcially love that sweet table/chairs corner with all those yummy treats!

Thanks for sharing!
Love ya
Lorena

Oh Celeste, this room is a dream. All the touches are wonderful, like the roses on the bottom of the ceiling fan, the paintings and the invites in the closet. It looks like a Susan Rios painting. Such a lovely place filled with special things. You created a piece of heaven.

Cathy said...

Celeste,

I was sitting here blogging when I thought to myself I've got to go by and see what Celeste is up to and bang your blog invite came in my In Box. I ran right over to see the Pink Redo and my mouth dropped open.

OMG!!!! What an enchanting room. I could just crawl under the covers of that beautiful quilt and lay in bed all day staring at all those gorgeous pretties. I just love when I look around my house and I know where all my beautiful decorations came from and all the heart and soul that went into them.

You did an amazing job Celeste. Just absolutely gorgeous. It is all so beautiful and it's obvious you put your heart and soul into all the lovely touches of roses everywhere. I just love it. Good job girlfriend! 88 steps to a beautiful space.

Holly said...

Um let's see, Celeste, you live in Texas? Is that right? I'll be right over! Betcha with my longs legs, I would make it in less than 88 steps! ☺

Good job, sweetie!

Hello Celeste, oh my how beautiful your room looks! I love the hall just outside your room too. Such a nice welcome to the sweet room that is inside. I love all the little things that remind you of friends and family. Your chandelier is so pretty, that is what I want to add to my home, lots of them, LOL. Thank you so much for sharing, I needed this inspiration to get my room done!
Love you, Shirl

Edie Marie's Attic said...

Oh Celestina! This room is so fabulous and so sweet. There's so much love in it from all the treasures living there! But I would be poor company if I were staying in this room as a guest... I would be up ALL night looking at everything and admiring everything and in the morning I would be so tired and unable to do any fun things!! LOL
My favorite is your little childhood rocker. It's all a feast for the eyes!! Thanks for letting us come into your beautiful room!

Have a great weekend!
Hugs, Sherry

How very charming, all roses and cozy. I like the color pallet you choose, and everything seem to have a story of where and who it came from. I like those kinds of conections. Just lovely. TTFN

Wanda said...

Hello again. I just wanted to welcome you to Roses in Winter. I just did a quick tour of the other rooms you decorated very nice. I have a question, when you have guests do they want to become a permanent resident? :) TTFN

What a beautiful room Celeste! It looks like a beautiful bed and breakfast room. Love all the details! Hope you are doing well Celeste and thanks for your visit!

Sara's Sweet Surprise said...

Okay, when can I check in! This is the room of my dreams. My rooms are so tiny, I can barely fit the beds in and one small nightstand. I've always wanted to fill them with vintage embellishments. I can take one creative element you had and possibly add something similar. The sign that welcomes your guest to a comfortable stay. Thank you for the tour!

Sweet wishes,
Sara

Cherrie said...

Your guest room is beautiful!

Nélia said...

Olá Celestina!

Além deste excelente e sonhador post, estou a apreciar muito os lindíssimos tabalhos de crochet.
Feitos pela sua mãe, talvez, mas de grande e intemporal beleza!
