Jack and Jill Bedroom Palette

There are only two bedrooms that share a bath at Villa Cantina. One has a queen bed and the other the only full size. I decided to use the same fabrics and colorways in those two rooms for simplicity and continuity. 

Oyster stick Mirror from Wisteria.  You can find it here

                                                                Duvet & Shams will be Historians by Kravet

                                                   Bed skirt & Shams Jonathan Khaki Linen from Chandler Collection

Great Vintage Egg Prints from A Tess Mendel of A  Hint of History,

beautifully framed by my favorite framer Artistic Hangups of Salinas

Chest from Dovetail Furniture


                 Carpets will be wall to wall Sea grass .  If any of you read Joni Webb’s blog Cote de Texas.  She chose it as one of her top ten design elements  If you haven’t read her blog you should.  She has one of the most informative researched design blogs out there.  Apparently it is as comman as a cowboy hat in Houston, but here on the Central Coast of CA they are not so sure. I have encountered similar problems like House and Garden Style of New York  However the bedrooms of Villa Cantina are going to be sea grass!


I am going to use these lampshades from Shades of Light
with these old balusters from Capitol Salvage as bases if I can convince the “boys” to turn them into lamps
On these little night stands from Dovetail Furniture

What do you think? Any suggestions?


  1. Love it all....have been waiting for a Villa Cantina fix for a week or two!!! Will you use any pillows/accent colors on the beds? Hope the "boys" make those lamps...they will be awesome. By the way....Il Cortile was excellent and we loved Farmstand 46.

  2. The selection of furniture for any room depends on how you want your room to look and feel. As bedroom is the comfortable place to relax, People generally want to decorate their bedroom with well-designed and stylish furniture. Bedroom furniture store.
