Here is a little peak on what is going on. . . . . . .
Our living room with Restoration Hardware slate walls. . .
(The soft green silk drapes stayed the same and look 'fab'
with the new walls)
I have been minimizing and putting things away. . I
am loving a cleaner look without all that stuff!
I have edited and edited and I am happy with my new dining room. While I have let
the outside come in with no drapery, I have decided to add a panel or two to the bay
and French door window. . . . I found a flax colored very light weight linen fabric that will not be lined or inner lined. Those are being installed today. I have also replaced an area
carpet with a woven natural fiber. The ceiling around my chandelier will have 'company'
at the end of the day. . . . Caryn Aikens, the decorative painter I have used for my
clients and also who painted my French country chairs will be doing a stencil today around my antique (straight from Paris) chandelier. It will be done to look old and worn and in
shades of silver with a gold wash like the carving on the French country chairs she painted.
If you are local and wish to buy tickets, they are for sale at Clever Girl in Western Springs,
at Jane's Blue Iris in Hinsdale and at The English Garden Flower Shop in Clarendon Hills, to name a few.
So much more to share. . . . I will be back!
