The wallpaper border also from a catalog, inspired the wall color and things started to take shape. The vintage necklaces, hat, gloves and purse were my mom's. She was born in 1917 so that tells you the history. I love to hit flea markets looking for things that will fit in here. I have started to collect white dresser pieces for the english dressing table also in the room. Photos of that will come in another post!

My Victorian Inspired Spare Bedroom
Believe it or not, I designed this room from catalog shopping! I had broken my foot several winters ago and being immobile made me crazy. I found great distractions looking at the many catalogs that came in the mail. (As you know, once you buy something you are on everyone's mailing list). This bed captured my heart. Who buys a bed from a catalog?
