Go with your gut…

  1. It’s lovely! I’d keep it black, I always love a pop of black in the room and in this case my eye went directly to this print and why shouldn’t it!!

  2. Kristy Swain says:

    Looks great in that spot. Goes well with the room! I bet it feels great to have it up!

  3. i like it black! It is a beautiful piece- glad you finally found the perfect spot for it! Hope you mess straightens out soon- sounds like a real headache!

    How have I missed all your dining room posts? Red chest, turquoise chairs, antique table, black chandelier, perfect wall color. I love it all! Would you please share the wall color with us? And for the art, I like the frame black.

  5. Ashley says:

    What a lovely piece of art. I’m curious to see what colors you are thinking of painting the frame.

    P.S. Bummer about the Gmail situation…whoever hacked into your account is in for a lifetime of bad karma!

    I love the black frame! It ties it to your chandelier…so I’d leave it. I’d be more inclined to paint the white Bally frames black – but their fine as they are too – let your statement be the Tina Steele Lindsey piece – just BEAUTIFUL!!

    Love Tina’s artwork…I could just look at it for hours. As for framing, I always think the artist knows best how to present the piece of work…ask her for her input! As for your e-mail, that absolutely stinks.

  8. caitlin says:

    this piece is so gorgeous!! i love it. i like how the black makes the art stand out…

  9. That is a great painting, but I think it might be lovelier in a gold frame – just me.
    Sorry about all the Gmail crapola – ugh.

  10. oh, I love that painting!! That’s the perfect spot for it!

  11. I vote black. Relates to the other art and your chandelier.

    How about navy on the frame?
    So sorry about your gmail mess. It must be very surreal having someone change your stuff! Not the sort of thing you think of with hackers . . . a decorating blog? Must be so frustrating.

My living room is one of the rooms that evolved drastically from when we first moved one. Originally I painted the walls chocolate brown and did accents of white, blue and orange. That lasted maybe 2 years.

Our dining room sat empty for months. Okay maybe it was empty for just a handful of weeks and then we couldn’t take it anymore and put in a folding table and plastic outdoor chairs, but in my mind that was still empty.

On the main floor of our house we have a Florida room. Being that it’s a Florida room it is a considered a 3 season room, because there is no heat in the room. The previous owners used it as an indoor patio with outdoor furniture and it looked like this when we moved in.


Fall is the perfect season to host an outdoor movie night in your backyard! It’s that time of year when outdoor furniture is still outside and it gets dark earlier than the summer which means your little kiddos can enjoy the movie night as well. It’s so nice to transform your backyard with cozy blankets, […]

round up of budget friendly bar carts

Can you believe it’s already November? Before we know it Thanks No. 1 Modern bar cart with patterned sides that looks great as is, but would also look amazing painted a pop of color! Plus it’s only $157. No. 2 This lucite bar cart is a personal favorite of mine. Look at those chic lines! […]

For the longest time our backyard was mainly just grass and a little small area where we laid down some pavers so that we could set out a little plastic table/chairs during the summer. Not exactly ideal for entertaining. For the past couple of years we have wanted to build a deck and enjoy the […]
