I have a little progress to report. The room is being painted but, my busy week at market has slowed me a bit. 

I am loving the Farrow & Ball paint combo of Off Black and All White.

The carpet goes in on Friday.  

The upholstery will get picked up on Friday.

Progress is happening slowly but surely…

Now, I really need to get serious!

I still have a few missing elements to nail down

Console/ Sideboard – TBD



or I really love this too but it was new at HPMKT. I am not even sure I can get it. 



Game Table – TBD

I want this Oomph table with the lucite top very badly but, cannot fit it in the budget. 


I will likely go with this old standby from CB2


Coffee Table/ Ottoman-TBD

I bought this beauty at HPMKT, getting slightly worried I may have gone crazy with white fur… but, man do I love it. It is from a great new source from Design Bloggers Tour, Ambella Home. I now need an uber chic big tray. 


I have this tray and may use it if color works…

I also picked up my bird friend to hang. I need a cool brass chain.


Cabinet pulls:

These agate slice or 


these Amethyst Gemstone Drawer Pull Knobs
