My weekend started with my beautiful custom headboard being 3 inches too big to fit into my car when I arrived at Fine Interiors by Susan. I was so looking forward to having it in the bedroom and now I have to wait until next week for my delivery guy to come to the rescue. Sorry Susan!! I know it has been sitting in your shop for a couple of weeks already. You are the BEST!
Then we were just about to install this modern, sculptural chandelier I picked up from Urban Mode a year or so ago until I discovered a screw was missing at one of the arms. Not sure if it will be problematic in the future, I will also have to wait for an electrician comes for a look first.
Things took a better turn when our kitchen sprayer came to label, collect, and remove all the cabinet doors. 3 weeks … and we should have a brand new kitchen! Can't wait! I also can't wait to get rid of that pendant at the island. #FingersCrossed my lighting plan for a pair of pressed glass by Tom Dixon will work out.
These beautiful drapes by Tonic Living also put me in a good mood.
I also had some artwork fun over the weekend. No budget left for a gallery visit, so I focused on incredible pieces from HomeSense at unbeatable prices. This birdie print won all the votes on the weekend and its colours work perfectly with the drapes and the muted gold wallpaper. The doggie prints from Trowbridge Gallery also cheered me up.
Here is your sneak peek of the living room in progress. Love my stylish Annex credenza from Gus* Modern.
We also decided to install the chandelier after sunset last night and had to pull multiple light sources to give us enough light for the task. Why didn't we do it during the day … I've learned not to ask "why" anymore. The end result looks amazing and I hope Chris will start to "like" faux bamboo soon.
We are also making great process in the den. Wallpaper, bench, and rug now live happily together. So thrilled by Nate's encouragement on Instagram. Up nest are wall sconces, chandelier, artwork , and the vintage sliding door.
Of course I have to thank this #German who is behind the scene, coordinating with trades, and working super hard and overtime to make this makeover a reality. From builder basic to custom show stopper, thanks for all your patience and love during my mini melt-downs and faith in my vision for your first home! #LOVE
OK, it's time to get back to work … good luck to us all on Monday! xo
