To Be, or Not to Be Daring? (Bold Interior Design)

Thursday, December 1, 2016

There are some bold choices in these rooms, and I admire them all. For example, so many metallic surfaces in the top image, as well as the mix of metals. In the one below, the mix of patterns. I find that I am more daring the older I get, although most of these I wouldn't do in my own home (but I still respect them). What about you? Do you like to be daring in decorating? I'd love to know!

Couture Brands at Wayfair

I don't ever want to inundate readers with product pictures and posts, so I always do these as a second post, meaning email readers get the "real" post first with this second one as an attachment.

This took me a couple years to find, but I finally found the couture section at Wayfair!!! I have seen many of these pieces in other searches before, but not all together.... all 922 amazing pieces with prices that I know I can't beat anywhere. I'm a big fan of Wayfair for this reason, as well as for the customer service. Not such a fan of the website because searches are often unfruitful, but I am SO excited I finally found this section!

Some of the prices are out of my range, but a lot aren't. Like the navy blue velvet love seat for $799 - I hadn't seen that before and am so glad to know where it is now. I'm really lusting after the pink lamp in row 1 too.

This post shows about 1 in 9 of everything they have available. To view all, click HERE

Home Office Reveal, Best Home Goods Find Ever, and a Masterpiece Home in Pink and White and Gray

Saturday, November 26, 2016

Today I want to show you some updated images of my office. I have almost finished it, but it's that last little bit that plagues me. Namely, painting the bookcases. But I did want to show you one of my favorite Home Goods finds ever - the sunburst mirror:

Weekend Eye Candy

Friday, November 25, 2016

I hope you all had happy Thanksgiving gatherings! Our was really, really nice. I didn't cook, which is a little rare. I hosted the last 20 years or so, but recently we have been going to my husband's cousin's house on the other side of Boston, and I have to say it was kind of a relief. I do love hosting, but I have recently seen the beauty of being a guest :) Here are some of the desserts his counsin served:


And one shot of my sweet peas:

See the chocolate strawberries? Ellie put every single one of those on her plate. I didn't realize until someone said "Wow the chocolate strawberries are gone already!" and I looked over at her and sure enough. ALL of them on her plate. So embarrassing but kind of cute!

Ok onto the rooms.....

Our Master Bath Remodel: Preliminary Plans

Monday, November 21, 2016

Our master bath has been in need of a remodel for a loooong time. It is builder grade materials right now, and it worked ok for us for a while. But now we think the tub plumbing is leaking under the flooring because the flooring is buckling. So since we need to rip that up anyway, we are just going to do the rest now, too. 

The photo above is one of my inspiration photos.

Endless Table Settings Ideas

This post seems kind of repeptitive. I guess I know what I like for Thanksgiving tables. I'm not actually hosting this year, so I am not doing one, but if I were it would look like the first one. Have any of you had time to think about the table yet? I'd love hear, or better yet see photos if you feel liek sharing...
