Red Quilted Sewing Room

Hey everyone! We are back again for Autumn Bliss....this time a little off the beaten path though.
With fall here...I have decided to fix up all bedrooms and the guest/sewing room.
Who doesn't love snuggling up with a quilt when it is chilly....

I don't know about you but we seem to have extra guests from now till the New Year. I actually love this.
So I'm making sure we have enough blankets and pillows...I don't have enough beds...but I do have couches! Yay...who doesn't love to sleep on a couch?  Haha

Getting this guest room ready means checking the floor for needles and pins hahaha...don't want our guest stepping on any unwanted metal objects!
I made several of these pillows and quilts. However the red checked quilt is one of my favorites...from Penneys!

I draped an old and very stained vintage tablecloth over the vintage ironing board which is made out of wood. Thank you cousin Ralaine for this amazing present! Yay.

Glad you stopped by for a visit. To see more of my Autumn Bliss posts just click on the Ribbonwood Title and it will take you to my home page and you can see my outside fall decor too.
Next week I will show the rest of the guest / sewing room...after I tidy it up! Big smile...

All that red does make the sewing room look snuggly!


A lover of scarlet just may,
When given the floor, have her say
About the bright shade
That lights up the glade
Like fire on a hot summer’s day!

I LOVE your red and yellow sewing room! My old sewing room was red and yellow, and now I only have a sewing part-of-the-kitchen. But it is still red and yellow. My favorite color combo! Happy Fall!

I've always had red in the kitchen/den, never in the bedroom.
No reason, just didn't..BUT....
after seeing this gorgeous bed I am ready for a redo at my house!

Oh, what a wonderful room! I would definitely enjoy a stay (temporary or permanent!)in there. The ironing board looks great the way you've decorated it!

Michele Smith said...

I am in love with your quilt, toile and rooster pillows!

Betsy said...

I would feel right at home here! I love all the reds. Wish I had seen that quilt at Penney's! I have the same rose tablecloth and use it for our Valentine's Day breakfast every year.

What a fun room! I would love to snuggle up in that cozy bed.

Every time I see this quilt, I kick myself for "waiting for it to go on sale"! I missed out and regret it. I think I also saw it in yellow & maybe black. Such a versatile design!
