We just hit the eleventh month here in our new home. The design progress
has been in both big and small pieces. One of my favorite new additions
is this dramatic Selenite sculpture
we added to our bedroom fireplace.
This was a big ticket item so I made sure to measure several times and
thought about it for awhile before pulling the trigger. Apparently, Selenite has some postive energy attributes
which helped me rationalize
this purchase. Since we’re not likely to use this fireplace (we haven’t
yet-hence the lack of ashes) I figured this would be a great way to
deal with the focal point aspect of the fireplace.
I love the way it looks and have no
regrets. There are votive candles inside that I’ve only just recently
lit. The glow from this piece is so soothing- I’m sure it will be lit
I had a lot of fun pulling together this little kitchen vignette. Not only do I love the way it looks, but it’s very functional too, as it serves as a convenient holder for all the necessities for a quick cup of tea or coffee.
This is Mr. Zhush’s home office. I haven’t shown a lot of this room yet, because up until about a week ago, it was still filled with a wall of unpacked boxes. Happily the new built in bookcase (not shown) is up and the boxes are gone! The room still needs some art and some window treatments, but I’m so thrilled to finally be rid of all the unpacked boxes! (paint color is Balboa Mist by Benjamin Moore)
I was craving a bright pop of color in my home office. Adding this beautiful Jenny Prinn painting
was the perfect solution. However, this piece might’ve been my gateway drug, as now I just want more Jenny Prinn in my life!
Finally, this fun new bubble chair
in my middle daughter’s room just makes us smile. I may or may not be sitting in this all day when she’s at school.We are tackling the dining room (finally) next and of course the guest bathroom is part of The One Room Challenge
-of which I’ve got less than five weeks left to finish…yikes.
