This post is sponsored by CALICO, which means there a sewing project ahead! This is one of my very, very favorite projects. I’ve done several things in here including a sewing project.
So first let’s get to the pink curtains I made from Calico fabric. This is Allepey in Amethyst. Each panel is 3 yards long. I simply made a rod pocket at the top and hemmed the sides and bottom. I did not line the curtains, nor do I think they need to be lined, because there is no window behind them. The fabric is silk, and it shimmers beautifully. Because I only needed the fabric to frame the beds, I only needed 6 yards of fabric total. That’s a lot of wow for just 6 yards of fabric. If you want to see the room without the pink panels, CLICK HERE. I liked the white panels before, but the pink really adds an elegance to the room.
I also added these sweet candle sconces. I like that they add something elegant without overpowering the room.
You can see the detail on the sconces below.
Did you notice the dresses made a comeback? Here’s one of them up close, only now the frames are pink. In case you missed it, the dresses used to hang above the beds.
I know a lot of people missed the dresses, so I worked really hard to find a way to include them in the new design for the room. I also want to let you know about the giveaway. I’ve giving away a signed copy of my book to a lucky winner.
This room is quickly becoming my favorite room!

I really love the fabric called Afternoon Walk, a Robert Allen/Springs Grass fabric. The green and purple colors are just what I need to soothe my currently frazzled soul. And your new book would go a long way to help put a smile on my face.
I so love the new addition to the girls’ bedroom. Just when I think it’s pretty perfect, you do something to make it better.
Elena Indigo! Would love your book!

Ashfield Faille Floral by Ralph Lauren is an absolutely beautiful carbon toile to use as an accent fabric in our newly decorated bedroom. The bed coverings are solid white with a solid pink silk coverlet at the foot of the bed and matching silk shams. I think this carbon and white toile by Ralph Lauren may offer just the right color to counter balance the soft pink and white. I have also seen the matching wallpaper to do an accent wall, as well.
Oh wonderful suggestion Karen. Thank you!!
Country House Linen. Thanks for the giveaway!
Renee Shackelford says

I’m in love with Robert Allen Twin Waters in cassis! It’s bold and colorful and “sings” to me!
Maggie Cooper says
My favorite Calico fabric is Rooster Garden. I would love to have that in my French kitchen. One of the places I would add it would be the back of my china cabinet. I would be very excited to have your book.
Rosa Allen says
My favorite fabric is Zen Toyle Linen!! I like it so much that I bought a yard and a half, brought it home being super excited and it goes with nothing I have! It clashes with my oriental rug. LOL. So I am saving it for a special project. I think the bedroom is lovely. I like the addition of the silk curtains.
This bedroom looks beautiful, I love pink color 🙂
Love the way the bedroom turned out! The drapes are beautiful.

Thomas porcelain speaks to me. It has an Asian vibe. Last summer I visited Monet’s Home in Giverny, France. Throughout his home he had works of art by Japanese Artists. His extensive gardens are also punctuated by Japanese influence. It is seen in the bamboo and the amazing Water Lily Garden. Anita your posts are my happy place. Thank you!
Oh Linda, you are so sweet. Thanks for making my day!!!
