WEEKEND FINDS

Sunday I spent most of the day running errands and also looking for some new items to work on and bring to life, in the New Year. Part of my New Years resolution is to finish what I’ve started. So that being said I’ve decided to finally get started on this chair I bought over the summer (see below).I must admit. Even though I haven’t started on this project yet. I’ve been searching around for the perfect fabric and I finally found the one. It looks a bit masculine but I think it will bring out some character in the chair and I love it!

Another find is this lovely 6-light iron chandelier.I’ve probably looked at this a dozen times before I contacted the seller from, “Craigslist”. I was of course pleased to know it was still for sale. So I’ll be purchasing it this week. Be sure to check back soon to see the final result.

If you have any suggestions please feel free to share. I’m still deciding on what color to paint the iron…I’m thinking black or maybe gold. What do you think?

Let There Be Light

Lighting is one of the most important details in everything we do. Especially in your home. Take a look at some of these finds I’ve come across.Copper hanging lamps!!! This is GORGE to say the least!!! This would look great in either a kitchen or an industrial loft. I’m rooting more towards the kitchen. Picture dark kitchen cabinetry with matching copper pulls and light tile flooring.
Green with envy! Imagine the light coming through the beading of this. But this will be an amazing focal point in an entry way to any room or even your foyer.

Hail the Queen of England. A¬†chandelier dripping in pearls can we say GLAMOROUS!!Disco party in the dining room. But it must look great when it’s lit at night.
Twigs placed under floating candles sets the mood for the occassion.
Thanks for viewing and enjoy the weekend!

Walk-In Closet: Every Woman Needs One

Like many women out there who don’t have the closet space that can fill up a room all by itself. But dream about having it some day. You’re not alone! How would you organize and/or decorate it. Here’s some inspiration for anyone looking to just that!If you have the attic space turn it into a full walk-in closet. There’s plenty of room to store seasonal items that aren’t in use. Plus, you’ll have lots of room to showcase your shoes, as shown above.
P.S. I love the silver wall paper along the ceiling.Talk about GLAMARAMA!!! I love everything about this room! From the black chandelier with matching tile chandeliers along the walls. To the huge gold mirror in the middle brings a pop of color against the pink and black. Last but not least, the houndstooth matching chair and ottoman pairs very nicely within the space.You can never go wrong with custom. This dresser shouts I demand attention… And boy, does it make its own statement in this small but functional space.¬†A girl needs options. So put them on display! It’s readily accessible every time you need it. Now isn’t this easier than rummage for your shoes at the bottom or your handbags up top of your closet?Don’t forget to make room for your collection of jewelry. You never know when you’ll be looking for your favorite ones (which by the way, we know their all your favorite). Also, personalize your closet with photos. It doesn’t have to be just about clothes, and shoes.
Today’s the day to go out and VOTE!!! Enjoy your Election Tuesday.
