Well, let me start by thanking you all for your patience!  I am a bit of a perfectionist, and just when I thought I was done, I had another idea!  It was such a relief to finally feel like it all came together, and I could not love it more.  

One of the main reasons it took me so long was that I originally thought I would keep everything white, so that my clothes would stand out, but after living with it, I couldn't stand it!  I am a color girl through and through, and plain/stark walls do not bring me inspiration...it was just so NOT Teggy French.  The room needed something, and that something was a bit of a "Grandma Chic" retro vibe, much like the fashion I collect and adore.  So what started with a Le Fleurs De Toulon throw pillow led to reupholstering my desk chair in the same fabric, which turned into needing a matching wallpaper accent wall (thank you Carleton Varney and Dorothy Draper!). A pink high-gloss ceiling would follow (thank you Parker Kennedy for the reassurance on that!), and it finally felt like me.  I feel so beyond happy and grateful every time I set foot in it...even thinking about it makes me giddy!

So, my advice on decor is this: take chance, don't stop until you get "that feeling" (you will know what I mean when it happens), and remember: "To some, less might be more, but it can also be a total bore!".
