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.

  5. 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!

  19. 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

  62. Realizing this is an old post I'm SO hopeful you'll respond - can you give me any idea where I can find a decorative branch like the piece you have on top in the fireplace? And what kind of wood is in the fireplace below the branch? (obviously birch logs easy to find in the lucite/glass container - also love.) Again, beautiful. Thanks for any suggestions! xoLori

    ReplyDelete
  63. Hi Lori!
    That's called a manzanita branch! I'm pretty sure if you googled it you'd probably find many different places to order online. Hope this helps and thanks for reading Moth Design! xoxo Erica
