Maybe It's Love, Maybe It's Infatuation

I think these wingback chairs are smoking hot in his fabric. And the peacock upholstery? What more can I say!  To top it all off, they threw in my favorite color: turquoise. It's going to be a good day.

I must say I hate the floor though. I would so take this room with this floor. The white sofa and white chairs against the wood would just sing:

And for the cherry on top of my Friday morning, Galley Direct is 50% off plus free shipping. This M. Drake oversize (48 x 48) painting I have been pining for, like, a year, is less than $150.

I am dying to mix a big, modern piece of art into my home design.  For whatever reason, this girl just speaks to me. After "visiting" her online for at least a year, I haven't grown tired of her in the least. I say I need to just go on and buy her and not be afraid of how to make it work.

I also love this painting by Cecil Peacock that I could see hanging in my bedroom, but you can't build Rome in a day.  I love her confidence and aloofness. Still, if you look at her long enough, she seems vulnerable, like it is all just an exterior shell.

As much as I love these pieces, I don't have experience in mixing modern with a more traditional, cozy feel. I am nervous. I'll let you know how it comes out.


  1. I love both of those art pieces and think that mixing the modern with traditional would be a great, unique look for your home. Good luck!

  2. I think if you really love a piece of art you should just get it and figure it out later like you said. I bought this awesome piece of art for only $20 last year. It was too good to pass up and I had no idea what I would do with it but now it's over our dresser in the master and I couldn't imagine not having it. If you've pined for it that long its meant to be!

  3. Brandi, I agree! Thanks for agreeing with me LOL!
