{CONJURING CAMELOT} The Bedchamber

{Sleeping Beauty by Leon Bakst}
{Bedchamber designed by Gwynn Griffith}

{Prestonfield House Scotland}

Perhaps I perused “Where the Wild Things Are” once too often as I child for I fear I have become obsessed with turning our bedchamber into a fairy tale forest of sorts. The notion began with dreams of hanging a grand Flemish tapestry behind our bedposts so that we might slumber amid scenes of medieval pageantry, mythological beasts bounding about our heads... A rather garish gilded cornice will add a sense of depth, encrusted with candle brackets and gilded leaves... Our headboard will of course be grown of branches, the bed hangings spangled with stars. As to the bedding itself I envision a green velvet coverlet as lush moss, silken pillow dotted like elegant toadstools upon the forest floor. On a practical note, I certainly hope that Sir Seraph agrees with my decorating theme (scheme?) for I have already selected his armor!  Collected here are few of my favorite tapestry drenched bedchambers. Conjuring Camelot will be a continuing saga – so stay tuned for slipcovers inspired by dark medieval times. ~Splendor
