Master Bedroom Re-do

McKenzie and Moore Master bedroom

A new fabric headboard with nailheads and matching bed skirt replaced the
mahogany 4 post bed.

The  heavy draperies and valances came down and were replaced with lighter
panels. The arch of the window can now be seen.
The wing back chairs were recovered in a Schumacher mocha check fabric.

A simple but elegant chandelier replaced the ornate and heavy ceiling fan.
New lamps were added to go with the more updated look of the room.
The panels are a Waverly fabric called evening scroll. A perfect name for this
pale blue and mocha print.(draperies by Windows&More)

It's a boy!

My sister in law had her second child three weeks ago. Another boy! William Crawford Moore. Of course McKenzie and Moore Interiors got busy months ago upon the news of the pregnancy. We did not know the gender of the baby until birth, so we started with soft neutral tones. The minute we found out the gender, we layered the room with blues and browns. If a thrid baby comes along, and it's a girl, then this space could easily be converted to a girl's nursery with just a few changes!

Pillows and a stuffed animal were placed on the bench in front of the windows for extra seating.

Above the crib are painted frames with fabric scraps inserted. Photos can be
added on top of the fabric or can be left as is for texture and color.

Crib bedding by Windows & More Macon, GA (owner, Ellen Wyche)

Christening gowns are hung on a cute painted board with hooks. (Hobby Lobby)

The glider once belonged to the baby's great grandmother. It was painted
and recovered for a softer look.

 The  changing table was a mahogany dining buffet. It once belonged to the
baby's other great grandmother. It was painted a soft blue and the hardware was spray
painted brown. This updated piece is perfect for changing diapers as well as
storing baby's belongings! Above the table is a mirror made and covered in linen by the baby's grandad.

A Precious Little Boy's Room

This is my nephew, Bennett's new "big boy" room.

 Twin bed headboards found at Scott's will take Bennett from his toddler years to his teen years.

Dog Fabric found at Forsyth Fabrics in Atlanta.

 Playing off the dog fabric, Lea Moore (his mother) painted dog silhouettes on burlap.

We carried the burlap down into the gathered bed skirts and accent pillows, adding to the rustic look.

No sew Pillows!

 Start with a double sided placemat...
meaning the front and back of the placemat are separate pieces sewn together.

 Rip the seam apart to create an opening on one side of the placemat.

 Slide a pillow form or stuffing through the opening.

 Hot glue or stitch the opening back together.

 Easy and inexpensive!
