yesterday, we had to go to fortunoff to spend a gift card that we had received for our wedding. it was quite a generous amount, and we would have lost it in a couple of weeks (it expires in 2 years). we were hoping to find a coffee table, but no such luck. so, onto the lighting department we went.
and we found some great pieces!!! we got a great chandelier for the bedroom, along with a gorgeous chrome-finish table lamp (on sale from $150 to $50!!). and then we found a tall buffet-height table lamp for the dining space for $40. oh, the joy! the ecstasy!!!
now we have more of a direction for the bedroom. along with our white shag rug, we're doing b&w bedding in a bold print to go with the black shades on the chandelier. we'll offset this with the beautiful pillows made for my by my friend loren in a teal/gold fabric. then we're thinking of a warm grey paint color and possibly gold sheer curtains. sigh... so sophisticated!
