Progress in the Hearth Room

Things are coming right along in our hearth room...in fact, it's basically done, except for the long-awaited couch and maybe some new pillows! I am SO excited about how this room is coming together! I think after 2.5 years it finally feels like my style, not like an afterthought. It's also been a great place to test my evolving style that's leaning more modern than vintage. I definitely still have vintage and antique pieces incorporated, but it just feels fresher, cleaner and more...2016? If that makes sense? Here's what I've been up to (sorry these are just photos from my phone)

I was gifted these gorgeous myrtle topiaries for mothers day and they are the perfect touch of green for the space!



Next I picked up just a few finishing touches for the shelves. I actually found the blue bottle, bone inlay black and white tray and decorative brush (can't remember the name of these off the top of my head) from Tuesday Morning. I love the graphic pop the tray adds and it's so fun mixing in the deep blues.



In this little corner, I picked up the gold side table at Ross for a steal. I had really wanted a gold table with a marble top, but was having trouble finding the right thing, and this one was such a good deal I couldn't pass it up. I also swapped the lamp shade for a black one from the guest room. I am the worst about "shopping the house" because once I find something to go in a spot...that is its spot! : ) But I think the black shade is just what this corner needed to anchor the space.


Then a few days ago our new rug arrived. I liked the one we had in here previously but I felt the size was too small and it was also a bit dark. This 8x10 from Overstock was such a good price I couldn't pass it up, and the herringbone pattern feels modern yet timeless...which is sort of the theme of the room right now!


I also purchased this round mirror from Target which I am in love with but just wasn't quite right in the room. I am desperately searching for a place in the house for it because it is so gorgeous and was a steal!
 

The couch is supposed to arrive this week (I may have mentioned it came a few weeks ago but had a large black mark on it so they had to send out a new one). I am still debating getting this art in place of the galvanized wall clock (that's where the round mirror was supposed to go), and will probably add in these pillows and these. And then I think it will be officially finished! A mere two and a half years after we started... : )
