The February ’08 issue of Domino magazine arrived in my mailbox yesterday, even though I had absolutely no memory of ordering it.
I wonder if this is like that disorder where people get up in the middle of the night and eat everything in the fridge in their sleep? Except I’m getting up and ordering more magazines off the Internet?
When I opened the magazine, the first thing I saw was this lovely room.
It’s the handiwork of a Domino reader named Catherine who submitted photos of her re-decorated master bedroom for a decorating contest they were having.
Readers voted online for their favorite room and she won the $10,000 prize.
The mag says Catherine wanted to turn two small bedrooms into one airy, Parisian-style sanctuary, so she took a sledgehammer to the wall herself and then “painted, lime-washed, stenciled, sawed and silver-leafed this boudoir into existence herself.” I’m impressed.
The hardwood floors look either bleached or painted (can anyone tell?). She stenciled the closet doors. Besides the chaise and chair that she bought for the room, she re-used everything she already had. Catherine even chopped the posts off her old brown bed and painted it.
Here’s a view with the dresser and mirror that she refinished:
