Bedroom +

I thought I would show you some pics from my bedroom.  It's a really large one compared to the other rooms in my house, and so it has to absorb quite a bit of  Freshly Found-ness.  Things were quite out of control over Christmas, but have been taken into hand now and are looking a lot neater.  I have the challenge of working and living at home and so have to integrate both as best I can.  
The stands that I use for the i♥market flank my dressing table when they are off duty.  They are draped with some vintage finds - tablecloths and clothing - most of which is also for sale. 
You can see my work space reflected in my dressing table mirror! 
On the right hand side of my dressing table you will see an Umbra jewellery hanger I bought on my recent trip to Israel.  It comes from Soho 100% Design. in the Mamilla Mall Jerusalem.  A very inspiring design store.  
If you would like to browse their catalogue, you can see it here, but remember to page through from the back, because it's Hebrew. 
It's one of the few 'new' things that come into my home.  Most of my home is filled with products-with-a-story.  The dressing table belonged to my gran, the lamp you see reflected in the mirror is a dated green jade one, which has taken a coat of white paint very well!  The stool at my dressing table was part of a set of 4 director's chairs sourced from the hospice years ago.  I remade the seat from linen.  The jug reflected in the mirror was a copper one, which has also been rejuvenated with white paint!
Hope you've had a lovely Easter Weekend and are ready to face life again!
I've enjoyed my market break.  I visited the i♥market this Saturday, but will be back as an stall holder again next month!

So beautiful and tranquil. I love the stories behind the items.

I've spent a couple of hours reading through your blog, which was a favourite with me until I somehow lost it. The mysteries of the internet. Now I'm delighted to have found you again and I'll be more careful this time!

Certainly, your room is so beautiful! It's great to see white above because, I think white is color of peace and elegance the dressing table is expressing the same things. Anyway, thanks and would love to listen from you more.
