Thank you, Thank you

I wanted to thank you all for your kind comments on my "ongoing home design". I truly appreciate each and everyone of my readers!! I also wanted to list some of the sources that you asked for..My home is a mix of vintage and new. I always have to keep a budget in mind and splurge on my absolute "have to have" favorites. Oh and if you live near a Home Goods they just received a great selection of lamps {a weakness for me}. I bought the one pictured below, it's hand made porcelain. I just loved the intricate details..It's either going to my daughter's nursery, which I need to start working on, or my master bedroom!

Foyer: Mirror - White Coral Mirror - Ballard Designs
Black console - vintage, I painted it black and replaced the hardware - Muffs Hardware {beware include the word hardware, I made that mistake}

Living Room:
White Chairs - Pottery Barn
Vases - Vintage
Paint Color - Dorian Gray - C2. It's a light grey with aqua undertones, very soothing.

Paint Color - Chocolate - Clinton Brown, Benjamin Moore
Foo Dogs - Via Ebay from an Asian store in San Francisco
Rug- Seagrass - from - they have great prices

Dining Room:
Mirror - I found this on the side of the road and painted it black {i'm a sucker for road side finds..}
Chair - Vintage- covered in Coral Velvet Fabric. I also painted the legs white and added the over sized nailheads.
Lamps - Home Goods
Gurgling Cod - Sherve, Crump and Low
Paint Color - I just painted this..{well my husband did actually} Turquoise Mist - Benjamin Moore. It's the perfect mix of green and blue.

Thank you for the sources. I have two addictions in design, lamps & chairs. Guess who will be trotting, no running, to HG?

Love,love the lamp, I am a little obsessed with lamps also. I have them everywhere,including inside the closets waiting to come out when I feel I want a change. My husband cringes if he knows I am gong to a store where they carry lamps. I guess I need lots of light!!! Love yours from Homegoods, I don't dare go,dare I ??? Kathysue

I am really enjoying your blog...just read about it after looking at your home tour on Made By Girl today 2/26.

Your home has great style, nice job...I had to blog about it! I hope some of my (very few!) readers come visit. :)

AH! I almost bought that lamp at Home Goods last night but it would've been breaking my lent and I decided to be good...hopefully it'll be there in 30some days

Hello, Love your blog. Of course I love anything to do with interior design! So yours is right up my alley! I came over from Madebygirl. I saw her post on your house, and before I even went to your site I KNEW you were a Home Goods shopper like me! K, it is bad when you can look at a picture and know they have that at Home Goods! Mine is like 5 miles from my house...bad, bad news for my family :) It is my second home!Their stuff is amazing, and they always sell out, so you have to buy it right? Thanks for a great blog!
