WISH Wednesday #27

Since I have quilts on my mind, I thought I would show you one of my all-time favourite bedrooms with a beautiful quilt on the bed for WISH Wednesday.  I love the gorgeous red and white quilt with the coordinating red, white, and light blue cushions.  I love the wide painted stripes on the floor, and I love the white-washed wood walls and ceiling.

Do you want to know something crazy?  When I was googling this picture I found two versions of this bedroom.  Want to play "What's different"?  I spotted six differences.

House and Home

Here are the six differences:
  • the bedside table - the bedside table in the first photo is a very traditional white-washed table and the second one is a round red table
  • the things on the night table - only the lamp is the same and all the other bowls, flowers, books etc are different (an aside:  I never would have thought to put peach coloured flowers in a red, white, and light blue bedroom, but they somehow seem to work)
  • the pillows - in the first picture there are blue pillows at the bottom of the pile and a little striped pillow at the front and in the second picture there are fluffier white pillows on top of some red pillows and no little striped pillow
  • the sheets - in the first picture there are red checked sheets showing where the quilt is turned back and in the second picture the sheets are white
  • the curtain rods - in the first picture I think they have photoshopped out the part that is used to attach the rod to the ceiling and it is visible in the second photo
  • the bench - the first photo has a pretty bench at the foot of the bed and the second photo doesn't
Anyone notice all of them?  

Isn't this bedroom incredible?  I think the simplicity of the colour palette keeps the room looking fresh and modern.  If you want to see other modern quilts have a look here.

  1. I have fallen in love with quilts lately - this one is beautiful too - and the find the 6 differences reminds me so much of Highligh Magazine...except the style and design version for adults lol

  2. I love that bedroom too. Love red and white quilts!

  3. Oh it looks so inviting and peaceful. Thanks for sharing.

  4. that room looks great. can i just crawl into that bed for a day?

  5. Ooh! Sarah's cottage! One of my favourite places on earth! I could easily live how she and her family live here - so much colour, yet still so relaxing! I am a big fan of everything she does!

  6. That is so bizarre - good for you for spotting the differences! I like the first version best. Like Bronwyn above, I am a big fan of Sarah Richardson!

  7. I really love both. :D But I think that Sarah's table choice is not as good for the room as the red one in the second photo. But I like Sarah's bedding and bench better!
