Our styles are similar and I was honored that she invited me in and asked me for decorating tips. She told me that the trunk previously belonged to a neighbor and family friend (who no longer lives there) family and it had lots of old things inside that since then has been discarded. It's perfect and coming from this neighbor I knew that the outside at least would be in good shape despite its' age.
Here are some pictures of the trunk along with some of my favorite blue and white pillows and quilts. I also took pictures of the inside and can you believe the paper inside is a striped faded blue. The trunk needs some dusting inside but it's perfect in it's imperfect shape.
What do you think? Again, thank you neighbor.
