Mid Week Fix Six and a Little Help, Please

Lauren Liess Habitat book

As the first round of renovations conclude, I just have a few more decisions to make. We’ve added new lighting for all of the main floor with the exception of the office {still contemplating a quatrefoil brass flushmount, but can’t get too excited about it with popcorn ceilings} and the dining room. Anyways, I can’t decide between these 3 light fixtures for the dining room. There’s something I love about each one…what do you think?

Onto this week’s six!

You can see one of the light fixtures I love in polished chrome in Bill and Guiliana’s living room. Meanwhile, I fell in love with their drapes as well! It reminded me that I need to search for a custom brass curtain rod for the dining room.

Lauren Liess released her book Habitat – The Field Guide to Decorating and I can’t wait to receive my copy! She’s always inspiring and this book is sure to become much more than just a coffee table staple.

Restoration Hardware Teen! Okay, for a 36 year old with three small children I may seem all too giddy about this, but if you read my article 12 Tips to a Luxury Home for Less, this is one of them! Similar styles, often at lesser prices. I perused the catalog a few weeks ago and it didn’t disappoint.

Every time I see one of Loi’s spaces, I want to redo one of my own. The pretty blues and ghost pumpkins pair perfectly with the gilded mirror. You can see more of this home and Tone on Tone Antiques here.
