A  fresh new vibe  is slowly  beginning to take shape in our

oyster painted living room situated right off the entry.

First, I’m going for gold with a pair of chic…gold metal occasional tables. {LOVE}

Picked them up on a fun girlfriend  shopping adventure!  They are so versatile! For now,

I’ve  topped the tables with small white marble pastry boards from our kitchen.

I’m all about repurposing…plus, I like the gold & white against the white hide rug.

(We will see just how long this arrangement lasts though…a girl’s gotta make pies!)

I brought in more bits of gold  with a mid-century Italian tray I picked up antiquing with my dear

 friend Jeanne, in Orange County. I also added a sophisticated vintage ice bucket I found on the

fore mentioned shopping adventure in Seattle.

Pink pom pom mums add a bright and unexpected dash of  fall color.

What can I say, I love the pairing of pink & gold!

Next, I picked up a pretty little mid-century inspired,

blown-glass perch table lamp, from West Elm.

Adore the shape, warmth  and yummy rose-gold colored base!

Light on….

Light off.  

  I also spotted  this zebra print pillow cover on the West Elm

clearance table for under $10 bucks!

How could I NOT?

The pattern adds energy and a fresh layer to the room. Now I’m looking for the perfect throw and

accessories to go with. I worked our existing gold & antique mirror table into the mix

and added our gold mesh accent pillow to a soft blush pink leather and hobnail trimmed chair.

The oversized shell in the corner of the room  still needs some  fall ‘love’…

My dear friend Janice,  filled hers  with plush velvet pumpkins!  I might do the same!

All and all, I really love the feminine and eclectic  vibe of our living room.

Might just need to curl up with a cappuccino and a good book.

BTW, I have lots to share with you! Been busy working on a very

exciting project that has so many fun elements!

Be back with more soon!
