I have been working on the Master bedroom .... the walls were already painted with Sherwin Williams Everyday Green... love it! It is a very soothing color and the perfect background for gray and neutrals. I purchased the 2 gray wing backs from Overstock.com they are the Biltmore wing chairs. Love em! great price and surprisingly good quality! The little chest between the two chairs has been passed down on hubby's side of the family and got a wash of creamy paint... we have had it for years and the more beat up it gets the better I like it. The mirror was gifted as payment for helping someone style their dining room... very fun piece, love mixing the ornate with simple.. it is so me. I found the perfect little lamp in teal glass from Home Goods, as well as the chevron glass box. It created a nice little sitting area in the bedroom perfect for chillaxin... yes, that is a word. I kept the artwork neutral, 2 sea shell prints were also found at Home Goods, love the Charcoal mat on them, I stacked them above a little table and set a iridescent coral bowl on top to catch odds and ends. I haven't gotten any new bedding.. thinking about adding a little gray to mood it up for the Fall and Winter.. what do you think? Bamboo shades and drop cloth drapes for the windows were both economical and stylish. Feel like this room is pretty much done... yeah... right!

As always the change of seasons has inspired other changes...mixing up the vignettes,moving things around....a new thing here,a little something there....and of course a pretty bouquet are really all that is
wanted needed to breath some fresh air into the house. I adore this time of year with the warm weather and things bursting forth in the garden....in fact I can easily spend most of the day putzing around out there with my hands in the dirt or pulling weeds in the rock garden and admiring all that is blooming or about to. Have you been inspired to make any changes?

Bathroom project complete and I'm loving the fresh new look! We are putting our house on the market in the next few weeks and wanted to update the bath without breaking the bank. We spent 5K and I believe we got the most bang for our buck. We replaced the tile in the shower and bath tub surround, new shower glass surround, repainted the walls and cabinet and added legs. I still have to go to Lowes to get the new bamboo shade... hoping to get that done this week. We kept the floor tile we had to save some $ there and tied it in with the mosiac on the shower floor. Love the tans and grays... almost hate to leave it, but alas we need to downsize, this house is just to big for H.H.,Maggie and me!
