To laugh often and much, to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children, to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends, to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others, to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition, to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson

ROMANCING AUTUMN IN THE MASTERBEDROOM
It's a pre-holiday makeover..
finishing touches in the master bedroom!
The nights are changing...
time for richer colors and cozy quilts!
What colors are inspiring you these days?
I am going from cream and sea glass
aubergine and olives!
I love, love, love my collection of quilts.
I love to layer them and coordinate the patterns...
from florals to plaids to toile!
Inspiration gathered from Ralph Lauren.......
I went "in house" shopping and pulled together some of my favorite things..
silk scarfs, candles, velvet pillows and florals to make new vignettes....
everything old is new again!
I have had this quilt set for so long and never used it....
lovely shades of purples with delicate crewel work...
