As promised…a few of the details in the main living areas.

Here are the bookcases we had built for my husband’s study. Why raise them off the floor, you ask? Scroll down…..


We “inherited” a wonderful Persian Oriental rug from my sister-in-law. It was the perfect size for this room, but minus the intrusion of the bookcases. So: simple solution: raise the shelves! It works beautifully.



Door handles: love these very solid brushed chrome handles from The Hardware Hut.


The paint color in here is Benjamin Moore “Camouflage”

actually, there is a chair rail, and the lighter color on the bottom I can’t remember …sorry.

It’s a wonderfully neutral gray/green: not too dark and is a great backdrop for photographs.


And here, finished, is the stair railing in Iron Mountain!

love love love


Not a great shot here, but take one last look at those horrendous sconces; they are soon to be replaced. And, we got some really FABULOUS lighting for this front hall. It won’t be up for several weeks, but just wait til you see it! It will be eye-catching!!


Afternoon shadows:


Late winter afternoon, looking west from the stairs:


I’m signing off for the week. I’ll be in Atlanta for Market week, meeting with artists and customers, and seeing lots of new things.

Have a nice weekend everyone!
