MY DECOR {UPDATE}

Hi Ladies! 
Hope everyone had a great weekend! 
I try my best to keep you up-to-date on my major decor developments...I hope you enjoy this post!
I've finally decided on, and ordered some key pieces for my place. 
Im so excited....Things are finally coming together!
I've done my best to keep with what I call, my monochromatic Hollywood regency look. 
DESIGN/ OFFICE SPACE:
My lil design/ office space is well.....getting there! 
If only I could learn not to be so picky! 
The majority of the pieces...my shelving, storage piece and design station are from Ikea. But I decided on the classic Parsons style desk for my computer area, pictured below. 
And all pieces in a glossy, white finish.
I have so many personal touches to add, I can't wait!
COFFEE TABLE:
The temporary coffee table I had, which you may remember from a past video and blog post is going to be replaced with a much more chic option. 
It's HIGH TIME!
After months of searching for a reconditioned brass or chrome accented glass coffee table, I realized I just wasn't going to be able to find what I wanted at the price I was willing to pay.
The one I found is pretty close to perfect.
It's sizeable without being too overbearing and simple yet elegant. 
Unfortunately for Bao this one doesn't have a second level....he'll just have to find somewhere else to hide out!
Here's a similar one the the one I chose. Mine is chrome and rounded crossed "C" shape, rather than "X" shaped legs. 
DINING ROOM: 
I once had a Docksta (Ikea's Saarinen inspired table). But among other reasons, it wobbled and I could barely sit comfortably while trying to enjoy a meal. I've tried to find an alternate but always go back to the Docksta... I'll pair her with two vintage, re painted and reupholstered bamboo style chairs.
Crossing my fingers that this one wont be wobbly!

I can't wait to give you a tour!

  17. seeing all these photos motivated me to FINALLY get my computer room together and get it organized (i've been putting it off for months).

    question though.... do you store pieces away that you aren't using or do you have a policy that if something new comes in something goes out?

    thanks!!!

  26. This is all so utterly, enviably, impossibly beautiful.

    I'm especially inspired by your office area. I work in publishing - forever surrounded by books - and desperately need to arrange a study area for home.

    These pictures are all the motivation I need...
