{Details} A toile tale

Sometimes it is the simplest of things that first catches your eye
and that makes you take a longer look.

When something first catches my eye - it is usually because of one detail
rather than the whole picture. 

Like the color of the paint on an armoire that I notice peeking out of a corner in an antique shop
Or maybe the stately size, carvings on an old cupboard or the texture of a fabric
that grabs my attention rather than the whole piece all at once.

Sometimes it is just one little detail that makes you fall in love.

So when I first saw this toile bedding
in that sweet gray-blue color
and with those little pleated details

I saw those details and fell in love.
Even before I took a closer look.

Then it was the pattern that grabbed me.
A simple and sweet toile

That soft gray-blue color
and beautiful quilting...

put all together
and add in that delicious gold sequin pillow... 

Well, let's just say it's love. 

Currently it is in one of the guest bedrooms
but, I have a sneaking suspicion that this just might make an appearance in several spots.
The guest bedroom is on the list for a few changes and this bedding is inspiring some of them
but you know, the list is pretty long... so who knows when that will get wrapped.

If you are as enamored with the details in this quilt as I am 
here are the links to where to purchase
 (and it is on sale!) 

I am off to finish editing the photos of the kitchen
and am so excited to share the new look with you 
in the next couple of days!

Stay Tuned!

Happy Wednesday everyone!!
