One step forward and two steps back is this weeks ORC theme, sadly.
The only real progress is the AMAZING KARASTAN EXOTICS carpet as installed and it ROCKS! I use this series in leopard and antelope constantly as it is the most durable and camouflaging carpet I have ever seen while still being uber chic.
My beautiful custom curtains from Tonic Living arrived in pristine condition as did my pillows. The malachite fabric is more beautiful than you can imagine and the workmanship of Tonic Living is immaculately sewn and tailored at each pleat. They are being hung on Friday. I cannot wait to share them.
Now, I really messed up! Neither sideboard I chose was available and I am on a mad hunt for a 80+” wide storage piece. I am afraid to hang the gallery wall without this piece.
Suggestions in stock?
I have my photographer scheduled in about 10 days. Lots left to happen!!!!!
Find and install the sideboard piece
