As most of you already know, I was recently on the Nate Berkus Show, talking about low cost, high style design. I got selected for the show by clicking on the "be on the show" link on the Nate Berkus website. I had submitted several photos of my home, but my bedroom was the one they chose to focus on.
|This is the photo I submitted of the bedroom..|
Luckily, I had stopped in a corner, but if you look closely, you can see some of the light blue paint creeping onto the green just to the right of the mercury glass lamp. I never said anything to the producers; Maybe they noticed, maybe they didn't or maybe they thought it was supposed to be that way! One of Nate's comments on the show was that he loved the use of color in the room, and this was the photo that made it on national TV, so I guess it all worked out! Another thing the pictures can't reveal and thankfully so, is smell. The day I got the call and was asked to provide more photos, I had had my duvet cover, pillowcases, AND canopy in the laundry basket for several days. My daughter had thrown a wet towel on top of the pile and there it sat....mildewing!! But when Jess, a producer from the show called and said they needed pictures yesterday, what could I do?! I didn't have time to run them through a wash cycle, so I just fished them out, wet and smelly, made the bed, grimaced and took those photos! After taping the show, the producers had me send even MORE pictures, so I scrambled to finish the paint job and sent off what I thought was a great shot of the room. They didn't end up using the "new" pix, but like I said, I think it all worked out.
Hope you enjoyed the pix, thanks for visiting, come back soon!
