I haven't styled it properly yet, but I'm definitely leaving my Francis Zimbeaux ink drawing up there. I'm probably going to frame it in a thin gold frame to match the mirror.
I scored the mirror at a consignment store for only $90; it's huge and it really makes a statement in the room. The chandelier is being replaced with something more modern and a little unexpected. I just have to assemble it first.
And here's the sofa that I recovered earlier this year. I love how the chevron echoes the herringbone tile on the face of the fireplace.
So I took a risk painting the fireplace white, while the rest of the trim is stained. I couldn't find any pictures on the internet with this combination. I think it looks lovely and breaks up all the brown. I also like how simple the mantel looks without the extra scroll detail.
And below are some inspiration pictures that I had pinned to my board on Pinterest.
And finally, the competition at Apartment Therapy is still going strong. I'm currently 3rd, and would love it if you would check out my entry and vote if you like it :)
