We are moving right along, and making some new progress in the family room.

Last time I posted about the family room I showed my new ligting sconces designed by Mary McDonald.

I left a comment on her FB page, and told her how much I loved her sconces that I got from Lamps Plus, designed by her, and she commented on how much she loved the final results in my room. Can you believe she took the time to do that?


 I LOVE Mary McDonald’s designs, and after watching her on Million Dollar Decorator, I am convinced we would become fast and furious friends. Shopping and doing lunch would be perfect with Mary. 

So Mary if you are reading this let me know if you ever want to do lunch?

I am sorry I digress. Let me show you my sconces and my Winter pillows that are in the white chairs.

Here are the fabrics that I am using for my winter look….

I am not sure if you remember my Spring/Summer fabrics so I thought I would show you those too…..

The fabric on the top left is Carnival/green by Christopher Farr linen.

I got my custom pillows this last Friday. I had them made into 22in. pillows, the cord welting is in the bright green in a linen.

I love my pillows so much, they were just the right touch of whimsy and sophistication the room needed…..

You are also seeing the new white Atoll mirrors from Ballard that I ordered.

I think the mirrors add just another touch of whimsy to the room. They almost look like a clam shell with all their grooves around the edges.

The white paint and distressing was not quite right for me so I got out the paint brush(which never happens and added two coats of my trim color.)

You can see the white paint, swiss coffee on the left, and the original gray based white with distressing on the right.

I am liking the new more finished look on the mirrors.

Oh there is one more thing taking place!

Here is a little sneak peek….
