Pottery Barn Office with Bedford Furniture and the Airgo Desk Chair

Welcome to the 234th Metamorphosis Monday! Hope your weekend was awesome! Mine was good. I worked in the yard a little and I'm hoping it doesn't rain on Tuesday since that's "S" Day...Sod Day.

I believe the sod will be cut this evening so I guess they will lay it rain or shine since it has to … [Read more...]

i_wm

Back in September, I was on an all-out mirror search for the office.  I wanted a mirror to go above the chest in my little reading corner, something that would reflect the light coming in through the windows .

I shared my small (but growing) office … [Read more...]
