First, I have to apologize for the lack of posts around here. There hasn’t been a post since last week’s ORC update, but I’ve got some great home tours and exciting partnerships coming up this fall that I can’t wait to share more about. We’re now at the point where most of the large pieces are in place for my ORC project, so I wanted to give you a glimpse of the room with the new sofa and hide rug. Now that I’m started to think about the finishing touches, I can see the six-week deadline approaching more quickly than I expected! Check out all of the linking participants on Calling it Home.
Now in last post I mentioned my quandary with the bare fireplace, and I think I may have found part of the solution. While I was perusing the other link-ups last week, I stumbled upon The Honeycomb Home‘s inspiration for her project, which included filling the fireplace with books! I think the idea could add some textural interest to the black hole that is currently our fireplace, and since it doesn’t vent well, we won’t be using it anyway. My only concern is that the look is very styled – so let me know what you think about it in the comments… I created a little GIF below so you can see what it might look like!
Now that we’re approaching Week Five I’m getting anxious about it all coming together. Like always, I can expect a very last-minute prop run before the shoot, but I’m still looking for the right side table for the leather armchair on the left side of the chaise. I’m thinking something without legs (there are enough of those in the room as it is) that has a solid modern shape. Any ideas?
