Master bedrooms get ignored. That’s been my experience anyway. I tend to focus on the more public parts of the house. And then the kids’ bedrooms come next.
But I’m trying to give our bedroom a little more attention. Which is why I was pleasantly surprised when these four framed prints that I found at an estate sale worked well with the colors in our bedroom.
One of the prints is of the Cockermouth Castle.
The other the Hermitage of Warkworth.
I had never heard of either so I Googled them. There are also descriptions – in both English and French – taped to the backs of the prints.
They seem to be pages from a book. That’s the kind of quirky thing I love about secondhand items.
It was actually the matting on these two that sold me on the prints.
And I know I have my time periods all wrong, but the scenes make me think of Jane Austen novels.
The other two prints are drawing room scenes.
The matting and framing on these two are slightly different and no pages taped to the back.
I tried the prints out in different places in the room.
But I kept coming back to the dresser.
They’ve been propped up there for longer than I’d like to admit.
But yesterday I finally got out the hammer and hung them up.
And the master bedroom isn’t the only thing to have a new look lately. Megan Ronecker of Ruby and Sass has designed a new blog header for Creating This Life. Not only do I think the look is perfect for the blog, but the Megan was so easy to work with and made the process such a fun one.
If you’re reading this in an email or a blog reader, hop over to the blog and see the new header. Thank you, Megan!
