If you have read my blog for any amount of time you know that the Fall is my favorite time of the year.
I love to savor every day of this magical month,the days are getting shorter with the nights getting cooler with just the tips of the trees transitioning into fiery bursts of orange and reds.
Many projects have been idealized and realized while some have been created out of sure fun for the holiday season which comes at the end of the month.
Here are just a few snapshots of some projects completed and in the works:
This project has been ongoing from floor refinishing to plastering the walls. A fireplace emerged and now finally overhead lighting and rough hewn beams are finished.
Next comes the daunting task of furniture placement and fabric and painted finish selection.
I think as I have walked by this for about a week now, I like the placement of the furniture.
Note: When clearing out the room for the lighting and bean installation you may notice that the sectional is gone, well the boys moved it to the den where it is now residing. Another room redo in the works,,,,,,,
So I picked these up at a local antique mall (best of Tulsa in People Magazine) River City Trading Post, if you are local you need to stop by it's full of surprises!
These are vintage California chairs from the 1960's and started off when I received them as chippy barn red and crackled with these cushions...... they are getting a new face lift and will transform soon!
I was on the spot at the end of September and had hoarded these mini skeletons for many years wanting to use them on the fireplace mantle at some point when we built one. These little guys were gilded gold and are repelling down my beams to the mantle piece for some kind of take over later this month.
Last one for a while, for moi! As my working projects are first on the list, this pedestal is used to add height to the lamp and the shade I am loving it is a cork shade with flecks of gold infused into the shade.
In other noteworthy news. the spring is an emerging time for many local designer showcases and fundraisers for design.Locally, Tulsa has a tradition of Designer Showcase which has been operating for many years. Tulsa Philharmonic orchestra was the original sponsor, the Tulsa Foundation for Public Schools is currently supporting this annual event for 2015 the home is a Mid-Century modern design, Leslie Rowlands Interiors will be collaborating with Rick Boyles to complete a room in the 2015 Tulsa Designer Showcase.
I will be documenting this event and after the opening I will share the transformation with everyone.
