Ta Da!

Remember when I spoke of my living room (here)? Well, pulling it all together took a LOT longer than anticipated. I'm 95% finished (that's for you KN) and can't wait to share. That last 5% will have to happen when 4 boys happily return (or are happily returned) to school.
In the meantime here's a peek at this mom-only space. The tile is Ann Sack's Opera 12"x36". YUMMY! Do tell, what say ye good lovers? Floating white mantel (much like ikea lack shelf) or possibility 2: over sized Italianate mirror to reflect all the gorgeousness? What to do, what to do? 
As always, welcome to all the lovers who joined this week and much love to the rest of my Moth friends! Happy Friday! xoxo

Also, BIG thanks to Tiler Bob, the worlds most fastidious, perfection/attention to details installer. You do such awesome work.

Holy fantastico! It's gorgeous!
On a slightly different note...I'm obsessed with windows as I'm shopping around for new ones for my own home. Are your windows new or old? Can you share who the manufacturer is?
Thanks!

Wow- gorgeous! Amazing! I love the large mirrors idea! It will reflect all of the beautiful things going on in the space. I am your newest follower! :)

Alcira Molina-Ali said...

Oh my gorgeous,

Absolutely stunning -- truly, soothing, gloriously glam.
I'd vote for the Venetian mirror as well, much as I love me a floating mantel, there's something so calming about that smooth swath of stone.
Perfect for an angelic mommy to float around in.
Cheers, Alcira
