It’s amazing what two-plus days stuck in an apartment can do to a person. The polar vortex really had me down (though I really shouldn’t complain about “working” from home for two days) until I unearthed a gem in my linen closet.
OK, first off, I don’t actually have a linen closet. It’s really just a few shelves in the back of my clothes closet that hosts extra sheets, blankets, dated throw pillows, etc. Ha, I wish I had a dedicated linen closet, but who do you think I am?
Secondly, I haven’t given my bedroom much attention lately mostly because nobody ever really sees it, and it’s a bit overrun with, um, the other tenant’s “things” (cough, cough, hint, hint). Notice I did not include his nightstand in the picture…
But anywho, when I was hunting down a missing sock in the closet (also my laundry room, medicine cabinet and handbag holder—it’s really not that big), I rediscovered this handmade quilt from my Mimi. I thought it would be just thing to brighten my mood—and room—and help me ride out this bitter cold. What do we think?
I know there’s a lot of pattern going on there, but I actually think it works really well. I’m kind of obsessed with it, but maybe just because it’s so terrible outside and turquoise makes me think of a tropical resort on the beach, where I should most definitely be right now.
Love it, hate it, have a different way of coping? Let me know!
