new finds and gray walls

I just had to post a couple shots of my new pieces . These chairs were given to me { yes GIVEN} and they are so gorgeous! Solid walnut and in too good of shape to paint. I can’t believe those words even came out of my mouth! Anyway, I finally will get to put to use some gorgeous fabric I bought at Mood in NYC to recover the seat cushions and they will be fantastic! The hutch has so much personality I can’t stand it ….. jury is still out as to what the final destination of this piece will be but I will show you when it is done. If you all have any good names I would love to hear them!

Last but not least a window shot …. and notice the lovely , perfect, amazing gray walls in the background! I had the studio painted this weekend and I wish I had done it a long time ago.

Have an awesome day my friends! xoxo

    The gray walls are perfect with your furniture and your wonderful finds! Every now and then it does seem a shame to cover something in paint, and those chairs will be gorgeous with their wood showing juxtaposed with a gorgeous piece of fabric.
    Can’t wait to see the cabinet – my name entries – Hayworth, Garbo, Betty, Katherine (Hepburn) it reminds me of glam women of Hollywood.
    I love that lamp shade in your studio!

    Barb, I thought of you when I was at my gran’s place in Malaysia. She had huge vintage sets of drawers with really interesting shapes. I imagined what you could have done with those!

    The chairs are gorgeous. I have a love of chairs with curlicue arms. And the gray is fantastic . . . amazing how gray can be both mellow and dramatic.

    The gray walls are a Ralph Lauren paint called forde abbey ….. the best gray ever … I painted my den at home this color as well.
