September 25, 2011

Good day, all, how’s your fall?  This morning, Rhoda and I off to the Antique Faire (with a chance of rain, yikes) so we’ll see how far we get.  We’re also working on two mantels this afternoon!  Meanwhile, let’s take a peek at more inspiring projects from this week.

There’s a lovely dining room over at From the Right Bank you won’t want to miss, I am especially smitten with that Barbara Barry chandy and those coffered ceilings.

Cassie makes the case for painting a brick fireplace over at Hi Sugarplum, and isn’t that black and gold mirror a fabulous accent?
