details from my weekend at home

For the past month or so, there have been two round dining tables sitting in the living room. My roommate purchased one she found on sale (marble-top from CB2, great piece), but we haven't had anywhere to put it. Until I realized it can actually work in the living room, not as a dining table, but as more of a decorative piece and end table for the giant chair I own. It works out perfectly! Sneak peek above. Oh, also - the pillow are from Furbish and Serena and Lily!

And in case you forgot... we are shooting my full home tour next week (eek!), and you'll be able to see it on The Everygirl at the end of this month!

Naturally, I had to style said marble-top table so that it worked in the space. Oh, how I love creating little vignettes; pulling trinkets from other places in my home and grouping them together in new ways. I'm obsessed w/ my marble pattern lacquer box and horn sculpture, both from Furbish. And I've been wanting Celerie Kembell's Black and White since it came out. It perfectly depicts what I've done with my living room.

Another project I tackled this weekend was repainting the office. Remember the epic fail of painting my office pink? The room looked white/purply/grey/pink depending on the lighting... well I went over it with a coat of Farrow and Ball's Middleton Pink, and it's pretty much everything I ever hoped for in a pink room. I will definitely use this shade of pink here on out in the future. *Note the wall color in the photo above is the old pink prior to getting a new coat.

How was your weekend?! Get anything productive done?
