Slowly Coming Together

Our new space is slowly coming together. We’re still debating about a couple of things & the closet is still in discussion. Here’s some of what we’ve gotten so far & some stuff we’ll definitely get:


We did use this color on most of the walls. Iron Gate from Ralph Lauren silver metallics.

And yes, I’m a die hard lemongrass fan. We resolved our curtain dilemma & found out how to hang these dupioni silk drapes from Pottery Barn by getting hospital-type tracking for our 20 feet wide floor-to-ceiling windows. I’m crossing my fingers that this will work. We’ll hang the drapes up tomorrow.

Raymond Waites Haute Resort Collection.

My fiancee’s not a big fan of wallpaper but I’m determined to put this in our bathroom.


Our bedroom walls are chocolate brown like this & we bought a low profile bed from West Elm (they’re so nicely priced) & as far as headboard, I’m leaning towards the upholstered kind but it’s so hard to find just the headboard, any ideas?

Z Gallerie

White & tufted, yet again, so predictable of me.

I thought this lamp will look so glam for the bedroom.

Jayson Home and Garden.

I would love to have this Napoleon Chair for my ultra-mini office.

And two of these chippendale barstools with yellow seat cushions.

My other design dilemma (well, I have lots) is the big wall on top of our sectional sofa in the living room. I would like for the artwork to be personalized. Any ideas?

All accessories are going to be from my store. Thanks Tina at Luphia Loves… for the post:)

Details are my passion. From curating vignettes to designing spaces. I thrive in finding the finds and just discovered the art of collecting...all while sipping on a cafe au lait & a french macaroon in hand.

  1. Nuts for that wallppaper!!!!
    In all my years of retail…. men dislike the outcome they dislike the change.
    Hang a piece like art in the bathroom…once he realizes how great it it & he will…boom..hang!!!

  2. lovee your paint choices…especially the dark grey. i also lovee the wallpaper you chose for the bathroom! its gorgeous. and those yellow and white stools! quite beautiful i must say! πŸ™‚

  3. I’m so excited for your new space and I love your ideas so far! They gray is divine and I really like the curtains, bar stools, and that lamp – Beautiful! πŸ™‚

    As for the headboard, I inherited my mom’s Italian platform bed (all white) and to style it up a bit, am going to add a fitted slipcover to the headboard, so I can easily wash and change it whenever I feel like it. I’m not sure, but it seemed like the ideal solution and a super easy way to change up the look/color.

    I say go for the wallpaper – it would be such a delightful surprise for your bathroom πŸ™‚ Depending on how your space is laid out, you could carry the same wallpaper into another part of your place, ie.inside the back of a cabinet, framed, etc. Knowing you, you will come up with some really cool ideas. Can’t wait to see more~

    (sorry for the long comment!)

  4. That lamp is just gorgeous. And the wallpaper is beautiful. I feel that relegating it to a small space like the bathroom is an admirable compromise.

  5. Hi Maureen! Thanks for visiting my blog today…I enjoyed yours and will be back for more. Your online shop has wonderful items that I could use. I’ll remember to shop around it when I need some unique pieces.

  6. Love the choices! Great colors. The Z Gallerie bed and lamp are perfect for your spaces. That is a killer bed. I may have to side with your husband on the wallpaper. It’s very cool wallpaper but we learned in the 70’s the hanging wallpaper in a bathroom isn’t practical; the steam makes it peel. Otherwise, great choices!
