My to do list keeps growing... 
and so does the wish list
right now I'm obsessed with this rug

Room View

how fab it would look in my LR

I really, really need these in my studio/office
I'm inclined to keep way too many magazines lying about in stacks collecting dust
these boxes would help greatly

and I'm still loving a nude nail by Tom Ford.... its always gorgeous and appropriate
and on the opposing side of 'Toasted Sugar' is this lovely shade called 'Bitter Bitch' 
 which was named a NM Beauty Award Finalist for 2014


Happy Monday Morning musings....

I'm still contemplating black doors going into the dining room...
I love this exterior door in black
~Vicki Archer
and this was the picture that inspired me at first... I posted it a few days ago and it made
me think of doors going into a formal dining area and how dramatic this would be

i definitely love the matte finish instead of shiny ....I think

Main Entrance concept

the shine is so glam and i do think it would be too over the top dressy for our little cottage
what do you think of black doors for the entrance to a dining area?

DESIGN MUSE tranquil greys | vintage pieces

Love this dining room table and chairs.  Using vintage in your decor brings a level
of authenticity to the room that you just cant get by purchasing all new items.

via shopstyle

so crushing on this chair!  Recover a vintage wing chair with this fab fabric and get some glam going.
I could just kick myself too... you know when you see something....your out shopping and you think OMG I should really get that now.... cant believe I found this here....and then you think hmm maybe I should wait or look one more place and you come back and its gone.....well I did that...again! Why I havent learned yet to NEVER do that..... its beyond me but yea.... the rug below.... I found it...here in my small home town and I didnt get it that very moment... i came back with the bf in tow and it was of course gone. Sad!
Lesson.....if you love it...don't pass it up EVER~

another thing I'm absolutely dying over is this black door.... well and the grey chair.
But I'm thinking that a pair of swinging black doors entering the dining room would be swoon worthy..yes?

Currently in the process of painting a dresser grey ...and a bookcase.... i'm totally into the tranquility of grey mixed with the glam of gold, black and white.
I love these prints with a large expanse of white mat and a thin gold frame.
