I am a mess. I have little to report. I had a crap week. I have been busy running on the hamster wheel. I had a car accident that shook me yet didnt physically hurt me. thankfully.
I have replayed it in my mind a zillion times. I looked and the car wasn’t coming… but it was. I pulled out and was hit by the kindest man who has worked so hard for his new car that he had owned for 3 days. His car and mine were BAD. Airbags were out and we were emotionally shaken.
The kind man called his wife as I called my husband. They arrived almost in tandem. She parked and almost raced to ME. His wife raced to me!!!! She gave me a reassuring hug and said cars don’t matter but lives do. I was moved and still am. I cannot shake this generous response. I want to learn her kind and generous spirit…

Lighting and accessories certainly play a big role too.
Dimond Swirl Glass Radiant Orchid Glass Table Lamps from Overstock (hoping they arrive in time)
Arianna Belle is crafting me some solid bright velvet pillows in Orchid, Purple and Capri Blue/
York Wallcoverings Candice Olsen Dream On Onyx Wallpaper from Bellacor.- this sadly didn’t ship in time and the closet lost its upgrade… hopefully it has future hope.
I am also upgrading the outlets in the spaces with these Legrand Adorne Dual USB, Plus Size Combo Outlet and White Wall Plate Bundle and the White Pop-Out 1-Gang Outlet (fingers crossed they arrive in time. )
Here are a few peeks… paint art and curtains… Much of the room still needs help.
The curtains in Stroheim’s Montargis Berry are pure perfection. The embroidered linen drapes beautifully and they come perfectly packaged ready to hand. The hem length is also spot on grazing the floor as I had hoped.
Cupcakes and Cashmere Gold One-Light Table Lamp with Metal Mesh is the perfect little accent lamp below the Mick Jagger painting by Charlie Hanavich from Hidell Brooks Gallery.
This Mini Hinsdale 5-light LED Aged Brass Table Lamp is a stunner and provides a tremendous amount of light in the dark space.
This hallway is getting its makeover today with the Citrus Burst Paint and the wallpaper from Milton & King tomorrow.
I have little progress. The art that is here has been hung. The room needs the furniture to come together.
The curtains from Fabricut have been hung and they are stunners.
I leave for London Thursday night. I am going to see my daughter. I cannot wait because I miss her so very much! I get back Tuesday night. I plan to install the rug and all the furniture on Wednesday. That being said, all must arrive and work perfectly. We all know that doesn’t happen. Nail biting….
Follow along the other participants too!
