Well everyone, we are almost there!! Finally in the home stretch which I can’t believe! We are nearly done with everything except a few small details here and there and then the carpeting will get installed in about a week. It is so exciting and I eagerly wait on my end for the week’s progress pictures to take it all in:)

Hard to believe we are just a few chapters away from this turning from a construction project to a decorating one….finally:)

For any of you who are new to the blog or want to catch up on past Bluff Diary posts, you can go to the search bar on top right and type in “Bluff Diaries” it will show you all the previous posts. I always start with recent progress pictures then pick a topic to discuss. So first the exciting progress from this week-

_____________________

The pictures were sent very small so the resolution this week is not great but you get the idea!

Landscaping in progress……pardon the small pics:)

Bathroom mirrors, we all need them and I probably drive myself a little crazier than I need to over many details. I started looking for mirrors and wasn’t enthralled with what I was finding but in the end was very pleased with my choices and the best part is that they were all SO reasonable! I thought I would share what I got from Decor Market with you just in case you might be in the market.

I ordered several mirrors and will decide which goes in which bathroom once I am there, hard to believe it but almost every single mirror here was under $300! Here is what is on it’s way as we speak……

This mirror is for one of the powder rooms, would you believe only about $220!

This mirror  is for one of my sons bathrooms-

Love this mirror, really into lucite these days, it will go in one of the boys rooms-

This brushed nickel mirror is mighty handsome and will go in yet another of my sons rooms-

Another steal, this pretty mirror will go in either guest or powder room-

This pretty mirror will go in a powder room or a guest room

Click here to see their entire selection of these mirrors, there were also many in gold that were gorgeous but I need nickel/silver tones this time around.

Each and every one of these resources I cannot recommend highly enough, they are AWESOME in what they do and provided perfect customer service and delivered an outstanding product, can’t beat that!

everything looks gorgeous, and thanks for sharing the mirror sources. I am amazed at why anyone would pay a lot for a mirror these days. There are so many pretty ones at reasonable prices!

I am “late to the party” so please forgive me if you have already shared this info! What is the exact name of the tile backsplash in the kitchen (color) and the tile in the back hallway. Love both of them! All of it is beautiful.

Yolanda on

So I nice to see hem stretch…. Thanks for sharing this is experience

Margie Winters on

Your vent hood is a work of art. Perfect timing for the mirrors. We are in the process of renovating our powder room and I have been looking into mirrors this week. Thanks for giving me the perfect resource!

Eileen on

All in all, everything has been completed in a timely manner…no small feat. You are one organized lady.

Lisa on

Wow that is one beautiful home, this is so exciting. I cannot wait to see it furnished. I have to tell you, you really were spot on with all your choices. They feel current yet classically beautiful. I have gotten many great ideas from you, Tina for when we break ground hopefully early fall (Newton, Ma). Have a nice weekend.

Connie Jenkins on

So beautiful!

Incredible progress and it all looks so beautiful. How fun to be at the finish line. Thank you also for the great mirror recommendations, the prices are fantastic and it’s proof that you don’t have to spend a fortune to achieve a great high end look.

Anne Marie O'Connor on

What is the source of the stone in the back stair hall?

Elizabeth on

Your southern vacation home is lovely! Giggled when I saw your railing design, have been going through some files, found something identical I had sketched out for our front foyer stairs that I am having fabricated as we speak. It should not be as difficult as it is to get simple ironwork done, but somehow it is, especially since most custom work consists of elaborate curly-cues, etc. Not all of us decorate like the real Housewives of NJ, people!
Love your mirror choices. Went through same search a year ago, looked high and low, including Horchow and Pier 1, and that’s where I found the beveled mirror I chose: it was $600 on Horchow.com under $200 on sale at Pier 1. Good design can be found at all price points, it’s just a matter of finding the time to go hunting.

Dianne Kropp on

Love all of it and can’t wait to see the finished product!! Also, what happened to the Thursday give away? Did I miss it?

Annie on

Such fantastic progress. Every detail is so well thought out and beautiful . I just love your kitchen, the paneled doors the magnificent hood and your lighting choices . Hoping to renovate my kitchen sometime in the fall and have gotten very good ideas from your design !

Bettina Woodring on

Love the pics…especially like the hall of lanterns & the family room with bookcases. Thanks for sharing your passion for decorating!

Kathy Jones on

What paint color was used on trim. doors, and cabinets? What finish and type?

Mo at Mocadeaux on
