The chandelier is from Lowes, and they do not carry it anymore. has a great selection of similar ones and they are very affordable.

It has been in the family since the mid-1800s and was passed to me a few years ago.

I just noticed that Land of Nod has this style of bed, along other with several other pieces of furniture. It is called the Jenny Lind Collection.

These are just off the shelf sheers from Walmart, but I unhemed the bottom and the top casing so they would be long enough.

Although people call all spool beds Jenny Lind, technically not because the Jenny Lind bed would have square corners which the earliest spool beds are. The corners were rounded starting about 1850 as this one is.

I found Ralph Lauren Olive Tree VM 102 but it appears to be very dark. Is this the color that was used? Thank you, Pat
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
Anita Diaz for Far Above Rubies
No, it was just Olive, but came in shades from light to dark with numbers, Olive 1, Olive 2, etc. I had used the olive in another room, but got the Colorplace "Wetlands" for this room as it was so similar. I did notice Walmart had changed their paint colors a bit few weeks ago but most still have a similar name. I will look at both Lowes and Walmart and let you know since it has been a couple years since I painted it. Thanks for asking!

Hi Pat, I went to Lowes and the similar color is actually Laura Ashley LA909 Olive 3. I have used both, so I hope you can find one of them. Let me know!

Absolutely! In fact, one of my dressers is mahogany and the red tones are really nice with this color. If you cannot find it, the Ralph Lauren olive is very similar. It comes in varying shades also.

Hi, the paint color is "Wetlands" Colorplace by Walmart, which is made by Sherwin Williams. It is similar to Ralph Lauren "Olive" which comes in different shade variations. I have used both, and the Colorplace paint was just as good.

Actually, not Ralph Lauren but LA 909 Olive 3 by Laura Ashley is the similar shade that I used also.

Hi, thanks for your question! This is "vintage tropical." Everything here is antique and several pieces are from Florida. Also the elements of wrought iron combined with the dark wood are reminiscent of Caribbean styles from Puerto Rico and Cuba. The white linens keep it light and cool.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The first possible placement is pushing the head of the bed into the corner. Don’t think of the space between the bed and corner as dead space; use it for decorative accents or a functional addition. In this example, a plant adds height and texture to the space.
