Hello Again {I'm still here}

Hello Friends! 

It has been so long!  Hope you are well.  Did not plan to take such a long hiatus, but, you know....moving is hard!

Where were we last time?  Oh yeah, you all were kindly helping me with this design dilemma...the ugly former wet bar turned cheesy half-assed desk.  Funky in a bad way.

You all had some fantastic ideas!  If you missed them, check back to the post and see all the great suggestions.

As per usual for me, I cannot make a decision without taking F-O-R-E-V-E-R, so here is what the space currently looks like:

I had the upper cabinet and everything else (except the plumbing) taken out.  With the fresh paint, it looks really clean and fresh, which I like.  This will do for now.    
No idea what will come next.

However, I do like the idea of something like this:

(Grey and Scout)

A small chest with a tall arrangement and some art would fill the space nicely and give me some much needed storage.  Been looking for one that is just the right size.

I have also made a little progress with my books.  Still have more books in storage, but making headway.

(sorry for the crummy iphone pics...too lazy to learn to use my nice camera ;)


If you follow me on Instagram (@homesweethollywood), you know that I finally made a decision on a rug for the living room.  Was hemming and hawwing (are those real words?) but got a much needed kick in the pants when West Elm put all rugs on sale 30% off!  Funny how that works.


 West Elm's Amer Wool Dhurrie rug, which is deceiving because it's not wool.  It's a beautiful linen and cotton blend that is hand-dyed so there are many different shades of blue.  I knew in a minute it was perfect for my room.  Done :)

So that's what I've been up about you?  How has your summer been?  It flew by for me in a blur of boxes, packing paper and bubble wrap. 

If you're still here, thanks for hanging around!  I really look forward to hearing from you.  Have a great weekend.
