I've been slowly sprucing up the house, changing things around and all that since its been so cold and rainy and I'm stuck inside.  Here are a few of the changes I've made.  I bought this mirror about a month ago and I'm still not sure how I feel about it.  I was looking for something old and mottled with a simple wood frame, this one's definitely got the mottled thing going on but the frame is a bit ornate, not to mention bronze.  It does look pretty nice next to my little bobble head lamb though.
I finally bought a frame for the letterpress print by Jason Munn for the book The Small Stakes Music Posters.  I was pretty excited when I found that the pre-cut matt at Ikea fit the print like a glove.  Woo woo!
And last but not really last cause I've been doing a ton more little home improvements that I will share when they're done...on my trip to Ikea I hit up the As-Is section first (it's kinda my rule) and found out that my unattractive but super comfortable couch is being discontinued so I scored a ton of new covers and pillows for pretty much nothing.  I'm into all the pillows.  Oh yeah, I just wanted to show off my super awesome prism paper weight I picked up at the Pirate Supply Store while up in San Francisco, ta-da!

Your place looks beautiful, and very relaxing.I love the frame of the mirror with everthing, from far its still looks very simple, but closer up it has nice detail.

faye,

i've just come over after reading about you this morning on GOOP! what a great intro and piece you did there. loved hearing your top 5 insps!!!

your blog is lovely and full of goodness, i'm following so as not to miss out on any more.

your home is gorgeous and that mirror is a stellar find; not too ornate at all and adore your bobble-head lamb with it. isn't it the best when art work fits together like your print, matte & frame did, so good. yes and more yes to that awesome prism score!

off to look at more now. ♥

Love the image of this living room. The proportion of the sofa vs. the table vs. the rug give interest with the muted tones. I'm looking for a rug just like this - any sources you could share?

Hi L, it's an actual print that came with the book.
