Do I want it darker or lighter? Do I want it dramatic or casual elegance? Chris likes the stripes and I was going to do a diamond pattern with button tufting in the middle + contrasting piping. I, on the other hand, love the paisley and I think it complements the Ming Dragon drapes and the Crystal Lake bar stools beautifully. And just before I thought I was done, I found this gold and platinum suzani and the size is just absolutely perfect for the stools.
Which one did I go for at the end, you will soon find out!
I also visited Kevin of Vintage Fine Objects. Lots of fabulous finds but this vintage bar cart with impeccable style captured my attention. Would love to have it at #ProjectChris … but I think it's slightly too large. This collection of malachite beauties also caught my eyes. Those mini bud vases had to come home with me.
We also had a double birthday on Sunday and to celebrate the occasion, we went to The Spoke Club. It's a private club for members and friends only. A chic, stylish place and I think I spotted a few pieces from the Sarah Richardson collection. Thanks for the fab party Ryan and happy birthday boys!
Since Chris wants to get the balcony ready for the season, I thought why not check out the pre-season sale at Andrew Richard Designs? So many incredible pieces to choose from with great discounts. This pair is just to difficult to part with but I think they are too big for the balcony. Why do I have to fall in love with them??
To recovery from the painful process to "forget" about these sensational chairs, I tried to focus on other beautiful things like a little vignette at the house, a walk in High Park, meeting the swans, and enjoying my new book by Barbara Barry.
Hope you all have a great start of the week! xo
