What can I say? My readers have exquisite taste!! These were my top four as well and it was a dead tie between the first two for me. No wonder we all like each other:)
They had to uncover the stairs just for an afternoon so I took a few pictures, but its all covered up again
Living room is done, but being used as a temporary storage/workshop
Egg and dart almost done here, hard to see it was getting dark
Clearing area past future patio
Master all done, floors are finished and therefore covered up
The following is the finished landing of the back stair hall (not yet stained though)
Closets are getting done, this is our downstairs guest closet
Molding about done on main floor arches
Love how they finished out the window sills in the stair hall
It is basically about this huge almost illiterate man who has a chance encounter sitting next to this highly intelligent ,well read cultured older lady, and she soon opens up a new world to him by reciting poetry, and sharing her love of reading with him as they have regular meetings in the park, in turn allowing him to reveal an intellect he didn't know he had. She opens a new world for him and thus a beautiful friendship develops...how sweet is that!! (Plus anything with Gerard Depardieu.....)
A ROOM UNDERWAY. I am so excited, one room we have started working on to complete is our family room. We selected, after looking many months, the rug which was found at Safavieh in NYC! Once then, did it allowed us to plow ahead into looking for fabrics and furniture to complete the family room, no doubt the one room we will living in. I am really loving what I have so far......mostly rich blues, camels with a check and herringbone, very "Ralph". So a little sneak peak at the rug and as to what we are doing.....
No, that's not me up there...another customer!
Fabrics....so far blue will be the big sofa, the check will be a covered ottoman and the seat of a leather chair, herringbone will be a pair of chairs and that paisley will be possibly a chair and definitely pillows.
FUN BOOTS. How cute are these? I love them! Discovered them on horse country chic, and am ordering myself a pair TODAY and lo and behold its raining AGAIN. Wish I had them today. You know my love for monograms and NY has never seen so much rain, so these are a must have. Love the idea! Click here to visit the Zoubaby's website.
Well, that's about it on this end...would love to know if there is anything that you are loving or want to share! Would love to know. Wishing you all a wonderful day.
