Suite Elizabeth

we bought the writing table in the foreground from OfficeDepot, it has a flat glass top. I suggested she could move it around the house and even use it on the porch for an impromptu bar situation. had to be very persuasive for her to do the two light pink velvet chairs, I knew she needed somewhere to sit, they were inexpensive and in stock, two requirements when working cheap and quick. the three light floor lamp is from Target, the big blue decorative vase hand blown in Spain and we picked that up at HomeGoods for $30. standing floor full-length mirror from Hobby Lobby

A few months ago, in mid-January, Elizabeth and I zipped around Greenville SC for two days picking up home goods to decorate her senior year second semester college bedroom.

I had to really talk her into the pair of pink velvet chairs, she wasn’t about pink velvet at all, yet they were a good price.

We had fun sourcing at Hobby Lobby, Target, HomeGoods, and OfficeMax.

shoe choices she sent me for her Awards Ceremony, we watched on Zoom, I suggested black. bootie
flowers we sent her to recognize her academic achivements

Putting together a room so very similar to putting together an outfit. It’s fun to combine different pieces. For the Humanities Academic Achievement Awards she asked for shoe recommendation, I suggested closed toe black bootie for business casual dress requirement.

Suite Elizabeth; love you, love your room, enjoy your success.

  1. I love the tranquil, serene haven you and Elizabeth created for her. You’ve proved once again that it’s not necessary to spend a fortune to stylishly furnish a room. Where did you source the triangular table in front of the pink velvet chairs?

    • Thank you Rachel! I just checked with Lizzie and she ordered that tabel online at Wayfair. It arrived quickly and she put it together, super easy! Wishing you an amazing weekend. xoxo
