Update on my MacKenzie Childs style guest bedroom!

If you are wondering what I mean with this title, then you missed this post HERE!

In that previous post I give you a tour of my newly decorated MC styled guest bedroom.
I also talked about how these lovely Matelasse coverlets are too short and I needed to come up with a solution so solve this dilemma. A bigger size was too big, so here is my solution...

I made and sewed a black and white checked ruffle on the edge of the Matelasse! Done and Done!

It coordinates well with all the black and white check in this room. Now you probably want to go back and take a peek at the first post HERE!

  1. How fun is this. I love the checks and the ruffles are so fun. This room is fabulous.

  2. The black and white checks look fabulous and add just one more touch of whimsey to a room filled with beautiful whimsical touches. I would love to be a guest in that room although I would only be able to sleep after studying every detail, love it all!

  3. Oh wow it turned out beautiful......love how it all came together beautifully!

  4. So smart of you!! I will have to try this. Ikea has some cute comforters and coverlets but they don't fit other mattresses--this is the answer. Thank you for sharing your perfect solution. Love the room!

  5. I love how you mixed black and white with the muted colors. It's beautiful!

  6. What a simple solution! I never would have thought to do that! Looks great!

  7. The room looks wonderful. Love all the little touches. I just knew the solution to the coverlet would work out. Love how it looks. I am with you, the bedding people need to get with it. So many quilts and comforters are too short. Thanks for sharing. Karie

  8. Everything looks wonderful and you did an outstanding job. I love MC's items and everything works together.
    Thanks for sharing.

  9. I love this room filled with all the whimsy of MacKenzie Child's. What a clever solution to a too short coverlet. Thank you for sharing at Share It One More Time. Cathy

  10. Love the pic! I adore what you have done with the bedroom. From the painting to the decorating it all looks fantastic. Love the effect the chandelier lamp adds to the room. http://www.whitehallpaintinganddecorating.com/interior.html


It makes me smile to hear from you!
