A New Chair Love And Wedding Tid Bits

June 15, 2012 at 9:04 am (Home Changes and Additions) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

I fell in love with another chair. That happens often, doesn’t it? My wonderful, loving fiance drove me an hour away to pick the cutie up. Now, we have one more seat in the living room. Best part of this little guy though, is that it would work in just about every room of the house as things evolve.

What do you think?? I’m in love. I love the navy and white stripes, but my favorite part is the nail head trim that goes all the way around the back. I think he is pretty old and was redone with changes to the bottom half and I just adore how they did it! He even has casters, which make it easy to reposition for company. And once the walls are painted I think this will work so well in here.

Also, we have been super swamped with wedding planning. I have made every little detail by hand, and wold love to show you all, but also want them to be a surprise, so that will have to wait! But, I did want to show our framed engagement picture. This will be used at the wedding too, but also will be on the wall in our living room, somewhere! Notice the same feel of the stripes? Not intended, but I love it! I took an old frame and painted it, then roughed it up. The mat was also painted in one of our wedding colors. I think it turned out really well.

I think the two new additions go so nicely together in the living room! And, the rest of the wedding details are coming along too! Can’t wait to share! Only three months from today! 🙂

Chair Love

These have been a very busy past few weeks. Work, work, work, wedding, wedding, wedding. Time for projects? Maybe a little. I came across this gorgeous blue velvet chair on Pinterest this morning during my coffee. This office looks gorgeous and I think I’d be much more productive in a space like this, just in case anyone wants to help me out!

Aaaah, peace. Even while working so hard! Have a great day everyone! 🙂

It has been super busy around here, but I wanted to drop in and leave you with a cozy winter photo.  Not only do I love the old shabby chair, but also the thick knit blanket and the antlers…

Hope to have more projects for you soon! 🙂

My Perfect Bedroom

July 12, 2011 at 2:09 pm (Inspiration) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

On Apartment Therapy today I saw this gorgeous black and white chair by Ethan Allen.  First I drooled (we all know how much I love black and white furnishings, right?) and then I headed over to the Ethan Allen website to check out their new lines. 

More drolling ensued.  Before long I had picked out what my perfect bedroom in the new house should look like. 

The master bedroom in our new 1891 house is through a walk-through closet (very cool!) and is then sunken below a couple of steps.  There are raw beams overhead, and even a little stained glass window on the wall with a peak.  Yes, its very neat. 

So, this Ethan Allen room that I spotted had my mind combining my love of shiny black furniture, black and white prints, and raw, rustic wood features.  Here she is:

 

Gorgeous, no?  Actually, the Ethan Allen website had a ton of beautiful images, ideas, and products! Check out more of the line here: http://www.ethanallen.com/shop_by_room/bedrooms

(No, I’m not paid or sponsored in any way by Ethan Allen.  Although maybe I should be, becuase I’m in love! 🙂

Dining Room Inspiration

I found this dining room photo on flickr and just couldn’t resist showing you all.  This room is just awesome!  I love how elegant and glamorous it is, even when paired with the rustic wood table.  I love the mirrors on the table; what a simple yet glam way to dress the room up.  The wall paper makes the room bright, but still in the shades of gray that I love right now!
