Cheri Revisited

It has been two years since this post and I'm still dreaming of the Cheri set.

Periodically I like to torture myself by trying to find an antique bed like the one in Cheri, always to no avail. Yet this time I've stumbled upon a rather over-the-top reproduction than I'm sure would look better without a camera flash.

So I've found the bed! Now I need a new house, because in no way will this go with mine. I tried to talk the mister into converting the living room into a bedroom so that we'd have a grand enough space for the Cheri bed. He cannot be convinced this is a good idea. Who needs a living room? The man is being totally unreasonable!

So yes... gilt art nouveau bed frame, maybe some Bella Notte linens, some Fortuny pleated silk to line the walls, some cameo glass too.

Who would need dreams in a room like that?

Hahaha...he is being TOTALLY unreasonable... ;o) I think you could start a new fad, living room/bedroom design.

Tracy... he seems to not approve my bathtub in the attic idea either. Just a clawfoot tub, behind a Victorian dressing screen. Apparently a tub without a bathroom surrounding it wouldn't be great for resale value. Bah!
