The color is beautiful and really blends well with our Rocky Mountain Sky painted living room. And my husband is Greek, so I like the name.
I paired it on our TV console with some chippy candleholders I was given as a wedding gift…
And the verdict is….I love it!
I also found a few things to dress up my fireplace. You may remember that I’ve pointed this fireplace out as a major design dillema before. The mantle is too high and it just looks bare no matter what I do. Well, I got a beautiful firescreen to dress it up a bit.
The screen was a “hostess special” and you wouldn’t believe the deal I got! It’s got feet (which you can’t see in the photo…should really pay more attention to detail when taking those), and the middle portion is actually a door that opens so you don’t have to move the entire screen to poke the fire or throw on a log. I love love love the acorn finial on the top!
The hurricanes up top are new from the Southern Living at Home line as well. They’re a coppery bronze color with a georgous turqoise patina on them. I used them to flank a bronze mirror I already owned and a “G” that plays musical rooms around our house…he just goes wherever I need him! I haven’t decided what to put inside them yet. I’m thinking some creamy white candles on moss to bring some springtime cheeriness into the room…maybe easter eggs in April…and I can already see gold & silver ornaments for next December!
All in all, the SLAH party was a success! I got few more things for the house, but I’ll save those for a later post!
