Moving along....slowly

Hey guys - sorry to be MIA but there is some movement on the apartment front. Beni Ourain left and I put simple cream wool sisal down in living room. It is much simpler and gives a cleaner backdrop for the furniture I think...
Got this insanely heavy cool vase at Marshall's!

Still gonna paint this chair black or white


Still not sure about orchids here but loving everything else...
The desk area has not changed too much, though I got a new black hardback shade for the brass lamp...



Now the reupholstered desk chair, side chair, and armchair will be back in about two weeks, so that will make a huge impact. Then I really only need to do art for over the sofa and solar shades on the windows and either a bench or stools or poufs in that huge space in front of coffee table. Then pretty much done with living room!
In the bedroom I got in the parchment Augousti chest...


I love it but the mirror is changing and the styling will change. There is no outlet there so I can't have a lamp (ugh), I need a new rug and art (dogwood branches!) in there and then pretty much done with whole apartment this round. Can't wait to get the art up as it really makes the whole space. One of my fave parts of designing is taking and editing the photos at the end.
My friend Katy is coming in from Mexico tonight so the rest of the week is going to be spent going out to dinner and relaxing - catch you later!

Sorry if you already mentioned this in another post but where did you get the desk? It's awesome.

Thanks, KC! I found it on Ebay for a steal! To have your own base made I recommend Plexi-Craft in New York, then you can have a glass top cut in your area...

I love how everything is coming along and I would DIE for your desk! BTW, I think I might come to New Orleans for Mardi Gras! I hope we don't completely miss each other.

That is hilarious, Sabz! I always leave during Mardi Gras because that is the only time of year I close my store and can travel! I want to see you, though!!

That lamp is amazing! And I need to know where you got the drum side table?

I loved your place before. I love your place now. I am sure I will love it after more is done too.
