Greetings challengers and friends! This week we have been waiting for fabrics to arrive, installing a light fixture and working on a wall treatment that will be revealed next week. Today's progress shows my fabulous new Morovian Star pendant; a light I have oggled for years and finally found a place for it! Do you know about Dovecote Decor? They have a great store in Winston Salem, NC and their prices are so affordable. There are many of these star styles available, but mine is antique bronze and clear glass. I do love the mirrored glass, but opted for this beauty, and I am so happy with it.
Here is how you get into it to change a bulb, so cool, right? I hope you're making the switch to Eco friendly bulbs like this one. It will only cost about $1.10 per year in electricity.
Here it is at dusk:
And did I mention I never install a fixture anymore without one of these? Ceiling medallions just add a little layer (for as little as $9.00)...
As I've mentioned, this is the room people come into from the driveway, not my front door, so I wanted to make this laundry room more special. The fabric that I've chosen is Lacefield's Cub Fossil. It is $40 a yard and is a heavy cotton that could be used well for upholstery, but I did find it here . There are so many other colorful choices I was wanting, but this one melds the best with the Turkish Runner I am using, which makes the whole room:
In searching for the perfect color trim, we tried Bethany's Fratelli Tea Rose fabric from her ORC draperies and it is a perfect match to the rug, and just the pop this room needs. Luckily she has some leftover fabric, so I am making trim pieces from that.
Check out my girls today!
Best of luck on your projects challengers! It is so fun to see what you're up to, and wishing you the best in your final push to the reveal March 20th!
