Med School Blue with a Little Bling

Stephanie, my sister's youngest daughter is a second year Med School student . Not only are we proud of her, it's also nice having her close during the school year since the Medical School she chose is here in town.......and as an added bonus Jane comes over from Los Angeles more often to see her baby......meaning more sister time for us.....always a plus! Steph spends her summers between her home in L.A. and humanitarian medical trips to Guatamala....busy girl.
Of course, when fall comes it's back to studying. She already has a crazy cute apartment to come to and while everything is pretty much decorated, she wanted to redo her bedroom this year. When she and Jane arrived a few weeks ago that was top priority on the agenda. She wanted a pretty blue with a little bling to come home to every night.

Christopher and I went over to help with the painting

Now we all know it's in the details...........

.............some bling on the tassels........

......new frame for the Van Gogh.......

......Jane recovered the headboard with sheets from Anna's Linens......
notice the big button tufting.........love that part

............a girl's gotta have a few flowers in her room.......

........Amy.....recognize some of the accessories?..........
.............the curtains were made from the same patterned sheets as the headboard........
The lovely finished product........

We thought it turned out great...........and most importantly......Stephanie loved it! While she has a very nice office set up in her place she said she she does a great deal of her studying curled up on her bed with her laptop and books...........and now with her brand new little kitty to keep her company.

Finally, here's Stephanie........isn't she gonna make a great looking doctor?
From a doting aunt........

Love the BLUE! The room turned out beautiful. Great accents. Everything ties together wonderfully.

Rachel said...

The room is really lovely. I would love to have had a room like that when I was in Med School. It is so very stressful that to have somewhere you can go home to to relax, study, and regroup! Lucky girl!

Ginny said...

I love how your sister did the headboard with the sheets and then the curtains in the same fabric. Very nice! I've heard of Anna's Linens but we don't have one close around here. :( Good job guys!

First of all, WOW, what an awesome re-make on the room and all the accessories! Terrific job!! It looks absolutely beautiful! Do you have a sign up sheet for people who want their room redone next? Put me down (it's okay if you jump my name to the top of the list!) LOL...

Thanks for stoppng by my blog. I had no idea that my little grape dish could be that old. I just thought it was so cute. I always see the grape dishes in the amber colors and so when I saw this little one in blue, I snatched it up!

Have a great day!!

Aaawww how sweet :-) Love the look of the bedroom. A haven for her and very relaxing after the hectic hospital schedules she may have. I also like the swirls of plants on top of the headboard :-)

Happy Blue Monday!

Your niece is gorgeous and yes, already she looks like a full fledged MD! How wonderful to have such a dedicated and talented member of the family.

As to the room, everyone did an outstanding job on it. My favorite would have to be the upholstered headboard. It turned out beautiful...and with matching curtains you can't go wrong. The room looks peaceful and serene too.

Oh my gosh! I have two of those silver lamps with the turquoise shade in my office here at home.. Looking at them right now. I love the simplicity of them, but if ever I change my mind and want them to have a different look, well.... you idea suits me just fine!
