ORC Linking Event … Week 4

I cannot even believe we are at Week FOUR!  Linda is still calling the shots and keeping me on track! 


If you are new here, Linda organizes a semi-annual Challenge to change one room in Six Weeks.

You can check out Week 1 and 3 if you are interested.
I skipped Week 2!

And then she asks everyone to join in on their own in her Linking Event to do the same.

Perhaps because I have an entire house, also known as #ProjectDownSize, to do … 
I am just crazy willing enough to join in!

I promised last week a post on lighting and a new ceiling. 

Well here is the problem when I am not a total DIY'er.
My Electrician is coming TODAY.  He is clearly not as interested in pleasing all of you as I am.

I apologize on his behalf.  However, if you are in my neck of the woods, I'll share him.

He rocks!

So … here is what is happening that you cannot see!



You might remember the "Hide" I scored last year.  
It finally has come into it's own.

It is at the upholsterer right now.  Taking over the Toile that graced my kitchen a few years ago.  Here's the thing about chairs.  They Rock. And can be changed in a heartbeat.  Continue the Chair Hoarding.  It is a constant Giver!
And the Kravet accent fabric … well, you will just have to wait to see that little treat.

So … while you might think I am slacking off … here is the real DIY'er going on right now.  
Yes, at the same time as the ORC Linking Party.

Remember when Don told me to focus.  
You clearly know I am no good at that!!

We are painting the kitchen cabinets.


And I haven't even shared about my countertops yet.

 So I can't make it a total surprise …  they are man-made.  
Love at First and Last Sight!
I promise to share more on my finds.


You might spy my Island Top … 
But this was quitting time my friends.

Notice Don has his hand on the Kettle One.
Yep. Cocktail time.  
We do have priorities after all!
Looking forward to showing you my lighting next week!  

Check out all the linking participants here!

9.  Thank you to European Manor for the fun day and wonderful clients!


This week was fun, design filled and completely Fall Focused!  I was invited to talk with the customers of European Manor in Wellesley about Fall decorating ... not the kind where you just bring in autumn leaves and pumpkins!


We styled the luscious fabrics in beautiful warm hues to create vignettes with their collection of Classic accent pieces, small furnishing and amazing lamps.  The fabric textures and colors will create an updated look in any type of home!

Happy Friday my friends!  Go Warm your place up!  You can even buy a pumpkin or two!
