Happy 2012 & Keeping Focused

Decorating to me is so enjoyable. On the downside, it is costly and usually takes longer than I'd like. I'm trying to stay focused though... one room at a time, problem is (well not really a problem) I have two other mini areas in my dining room. So in order for the entire room to look complete, I have to address each of these mini areas. This is where I start to loose focus because I bounce from one project to another. 

Right now the "bar area" is being used as a mantle for a couple prints I want to frame for a gallery wall on opposite side. I have a vintage painting of my mom that I love, but I don't think she would approve of me having a painting of her above my bar area lol!   

One of my favorite pictures. I love the purple Jacaranda trees and the balloons in center just look so peaceful. I'm thinking since this one is my favorite, I will center the gallery wall around it. 

Future gallery wall of prints/pictures/paintings, different places I've traveled.  The white mirror was another cheap find! I spray painted it a glossy white, but...I don't know where to place it. I'm thinking above my desk?? What do you think?

These two tufted stools I purchased years ago from Target. My son noticed the sparkly button and pulled it off :( need to have it sewn. I love their bright fuschia color.

Lastly, Since walls are white, I do need some color other than what I already have and plan on doing with the gallery wall, so I was thinking some curtain panels. Something inexpensive but still a little dramatic looking. These caught my eye, I love the pattern and what else goes better with white than black right? 

To sum up this post, I need to cover up these bare walls! 

Happy Friday!

Hope you had a happy weekend! xo

I love your tufted stools, and I think you've just found me my next pair of curtains! I was looking for a black and white chevron print but I think I much prefer this - thank you very much ;)

I love that mirror, your Mr. & Mrs. glasses, your dalmatian coasters, and that you have a vintage painting of your mom. Here I am on ebay and etsy looking for vintage paintings of total strangers. That would be so cool to have one of an actual family member.

I know what you mean it is so costly and always takes longer than I'd like. Your house looks great and it's going to be perfect, I love the mirror and it's inspiring to see what you're doing because my sister just moved to a new place and wants me to help her decorate. I'm going to show her this post...

Following you now,
