On the home front…… things continue to settle down over here, its going to be a long process, one that will not be a short stint, but surely a labor of love. I have days where I have a surge of energy and feel unstoppable and days where I do absolutely nothing productive! I am however concentrating on completing a few rooms but there have been a few hiccups. Remember the beautiful rug for the family room? The one that I ordered furniture based on? Well, its too small! We tried it and the colors were magnificent but it was far too narrow. We had made some structural changes to the room which changed things a bit. Big problem. Furniture already on order. A few things we were able to stop but most of it is a done deal so we are now looking for a new family room rug, in the same colors. A challenge indeed.I think I am going to go with the fabric for back stair hall cushion and window seat, it looks great and in the searching I have done, see nothing I like more. Did get to the D & D building last week which was fun, I am truly like a little kid in a candy store when it comes to me and fabrics. I only had three hours but used it wisely! So….. below are some of my findings and a few (not many) new things going on over here…… The beautiful chandelier we just had installed in stair hall It has to be raised a bit, but I love it! I like switching things up…..and played around with my “blue and whites” for the island…what do you think? I know, I know…enough already! Sorry…you know I can get carried away! We are waiting the for the shades to put on the chandelier Pretty chair in my closet….. Guest bathroom, now I am looking for wallpaper Another spot for the ginger sisters Don’t worry all the unsightly wires you see under the sofa are temporary….see I can read your mind! Husbands bath…. Hubby’s bath lighting is done…now working on the window treatment unless visitors pulling up the house want to be greeted by my husband in the flesh:) And I wanted to do something different for my very teeny tine computer room/small office, literally it measures 6×10 but its a small alcove off our bedroom, and enough for a good sized desk and bookcases, so…I am kind of liking this, what do you think? The little lame “alcove/office” needs some help. As in “911”….looks like a mess with no where to go. But rest assured, I am going to make it pretty. Real pretty! What you don’t see is it also has beautiful little butterflies in the paper, a chinoiserie style…love the colors….. Reminder this is the palette of the bedroom And a few close ups of the ones making it as finalists in my seletions……. The wallpaper which I am sold on The carpet which I love, has a trellis pattern which I adore but tone on tone..so very soft This is a velvet stripe, thinking it would be pretty for a bench Newly discovered, this is a beauty…maybe drapes? Another new discovery, very soft, pretty and a little more open feeling…not sure but it is pretty Starting to look a bit orderly in the pantry…still tons of tweaking to do though! And last but not least two very different looks in wallpaper for the powder room off the kitchen, both work and both look actually really great. I would love your opinion on which you like!! I always love to hear…… Definitely a little more transitional than the other and than most of my house is but its a family powder room and the colors are so pretty The soft grays and yellows are very soft and work beautifully, its a more traditional pattern….thoughts?? Wishing everyone a fabulous Saturday and rest of the weekend!
