what you've been asking for


This is Saucy's favourite room in the house so far, as renovations continue. The principal suite, or master bedroom. Brown and aqua... lurrve. There was water damage on the wall behind the bed and after it was repaired Saucy decided to have damask wallpaper put up. Plus, hanging a bold print on the angled wall prevented having to find artwork that would fit over the bed. Always thinking...

The brown velvet damask curtains are from her favourite secret shopping haunt.


The new bedding. Those two little patterned pillows - they started it all. The tiny blue and brown one was the inspiration for the entire scheme ($5.99 at Winners) and the other one - an exact match of the wallpaper, also found at Winners. Saucy was shocked when she brought it home and found it to be so similar to the wall covering.


Do you like the lamps? The bases came from Target, stuffed them into Saucy's luggage and lugged home from Arizona. The perfect shades for them were found at a specialty lighting store. Good quality lampshades can take inexpensive bases over the top! That quilted blanket, it looks exactly like the ones at Restoration Hardware, but it's actually from Winners.


In the foyer leading down to the suite sits the jewelry box that Saucy found on clearance at Bombay Company on Boxing Day. The chandelier is from Home Depot.


A drum shade is the main overhead fixture. It's a bold statement: masculine and oversized but the medallion gussies it up to be feminine enough for the rest of the room. Saucy had the mirrored closet doors removed and built double closets with white panel doors in an attempt to bring some brightness into the room and take it back to the age of the house.

Saucy's makeup vanity can be seen here.

OMG!!! I'm having a serendipity moment here myself!! Love it, love it, love it. We have the exact same light (in cream) over our bed AND very similar wallpaper in the dining. I love how you've put it all together. You, my dear, are sooo very talented. BEAUTIFUL work. Now is there any chance you'll be in Utah over the next few months to help me with the finishing touches? You're hired! ;)

please answer my questions

Saucy said...

Hi, Hamlet! The scratch and "dent" table is at Canadian Tire. Loopy's room has the pink guitar! I don't know what you're asking about right or left, but her room us upstairs above ours, on the third floor. She loves looking out her window at the garden and the swimming pool.

You're incredibly talented! Could you please share where you purchased the brown drum shade in the bedroom?

Saucy said...

I'm sorry, I don't know the brand name anymore but I found it at Richardson's Lighting in Saskatoon, SK Canada. I've seen similar ones at Loewes since.
