the Master plan

I’ve hatched a plan, its a plan for my bedroom.

Great right…wrong.

Wrong because the plan for my bedroom requires that I get all new furniture and my husband Dan would freak out if he knew I was even entertaining the thought. I have so many other incomplete rooms in my home that need much more attention than the bedroom. It’s totally ridiculous really. But it’s all Ethan Allen’s fault.  Ethan made this bed, the Quincy.

You might’ve seen it in the Ruralist category in House Beautiful in the Dec/Jan issue but I loved the Quincy before HB declared it Ruralist cool. Apartment Therapy talked about the irrational fantasies the Quincy invoked, so its not just me. Its comforting to know I’m not alone.

  • That bed is fabulous! But looking at your pics – your bedroom is pretty cool too. All good things come with patience. I would keep my eye out for a thrift store salvage and paint it black. Lisa Jayne♥

  • Whoa Sary. That bed is the best.
    Your room is looking good though. My heart melts everytime I see that Marimekko. Its such a great piece of art.

  • I love the idea of having one amazing piece of furniture or art in a room as a focal point! This bed is definitely worthy of that! x
