Hope you guys had a great weekend.  We had a beautiful spring day on Saturday but rain on Sunday which is good for making everything look so green.  

Which leads me to wishing you all a Happy St Patricks Day!

Yesterday I made the bad judgement of putting a tool in my hands.  That was a big mistake.

I was just trying to install a simple shelf and ended up with holes the size of Lake Michigan and enough frustration to fill it.'s just a few screws so why the hell did I have so much trouble?  

The holes are patched and I am just praying that I don't have to paint the whole wall. That will send me into a nosedive.

I'm no outsmarted me and I know when to call in a professional.

It still makes me a little tense to talk about it.

I was at ADAC the other day looking at wallpapers and stumbled across this one.

Holy Foo Dogs!  It's by Sanderson.
It also comes in black.  As usual that got me thinking and the next thing I knew.....a plan was born.

I started with the teal color way and threw a little No. 9 Thompson at it.

Of course every room needs some Schumacher Leopard linen right?

And a small blast of color also.  Thibaut Zig Zag

It's no secret I am a big fan of natural fiber go to texture in a room.  Merida.
 It was starting to come together and I pictured it  in a dining room for some reason.

So I threw together a board.
Cause why helped with the annoyance  of the power tool destruction.

I found the chandelier on Nierman Weeks....don't even go there unless you have a quadrillion dollars.

Check out this beauty.

The table is also from NW

Found these on 1st Dibs.  More money.

Some great art by Terrell James

Just some simple cream silk drapes.....

Maybe someone will install this plan and send me a picture.

Alrighty then.....I have some sanding and painting to do.

Just drooling! Love, love everything. I'm obsessed with foo dogs right now and I was worried I was the only one! I still can't get enough of leopard and heading off to see other color ways! Thanks girl!

What pray tell were you trying to hang? I love Nierman Weeks, but yeah, over my budget. I used to love to stalk their showroom in the DC Design Center. They have an annual warehouse sale up in Maryland that I always wanted to go to when I lived in Virginia, but never did get there. Best, Beth C.

Sorry about the holes. I'm no good with tools either. Would love to see that mood board come to life!

Fabulous lady! I went to my workroom to pick up some pillows recently and she had just finished up some curtain panels with Enter the Dragon in that very colorway. If I could have fit them in my purse I thought it might be worth the risk. said...

Lol! You kill me. What an AMAZING plan. So freaking gorgeous.

Lisa @ Shine Your Light said...

Ooooh I love how you do that! The green paper with the fabrics… good, especially with that piece of art! I will be your handywoman for life if you could decorate my house!!!!!!!
