a chandelier in our living room and important giveaway

Welcome back to your week!  I hope you all enjoyed a fantastic weekend.  We had many plans, but all were cancelled due to my youngest who is still sick.  Poor little guy.  If you are a client and haven't heard from me...that's the reason.

But we did make time to hang a chandelier in our living room!  
Remember, it was a gift from Tom and Kara.  It used to live in their entryway, but it was just not for them.  Thank goodness because it's certainly for me!

I know some people will hate it.  But I can see the finished room in my head,  (new walls, a white fireplace, drapery panels, bookshelves, a new sofa, and fantastic pillows) and 
have to trust my gut on this one.

Here is a VERY UN-STYLED phone picture for your chandelier enjoyment.  
Please, don't judge the rest of the room.  :-)

There's really nothing special about this room architecturally.  But this chandelier helped get the boring out.

I know, I've been talking about ME and MY HOUSE too much lately.  So here is something truly exciting!!

Mark your calendars for July 15!
I'm participating in this very important giveaway by donating four hours of design service.  
Need an inspiration board for your home?  Are you local and would love 
a consultation and some fabric ideas?  
More on this to come...
O.K., now go mark your calendar!!

Finally, thank you so very much for all of your sweet comments on the new look of our dining room.  I have the best readers around!   xo
