Thomas the Cat gets a new room

My sweet friend TW has wanted to update her guest bedroom that also doubles at Thomas' own little haven. This is Thomas....yes...he owns the place...and he only comes out to greet you when he is good and it!

So, when she was trying to decide what to do she wanted something that could withstand his lounging and rolling around on any surface that he so desired....
my all time favorite to add in
then TW added in some linen, leather, and leopard
also my favorites

TW loved it, I loved it and I am sure Thomas is settling in to the new look just fine...
oh, for the coverlet, she found a mattelasse that is cream on one side and tan color close to the color of the burlap on the other.
We both decided the bed needs one more rectangular pillow right in front of the leather euro shams...
always fun to see something come together after thinking and talking about it for...
um, years...
