A little Laura Ashley

Happy August!  Today is my childhood BFF’s birthday and it made me think about her room growing up — a place where I spent a lot of time as a pre-teen and teenager. She had a California King bed in her room which took-up most of the room but made for great sleepovers because you wouldn’t have even known there was someone else in the same bed.  Her bedlinens at the time were all the rage — fully coordinated Laura Ashley bedding and curtains with pink tulips.  It was sophisticated yet girlie at the same time and I just loved it — oh, the ’80s! 

I think the Laura Ashley brand has done a pretty good job of growing up but staying true to what it’s always been — a sophisticated look with a heavy feminine hand — case in point, this sofa and wallpaper.  All the yummy duck egg blues have a very calming effect.  So, on this August 1st — a shout out to both Tracy and Laura…
