Good morning my readers, I do know that a lot of you like to be updated about our living room redo.


About a week ago, the artist painter finished the paneling patina.

2-1Before bringing on the final coat, we added the mirrored glass into the paneling above the fire place.

It is always diffficult to see the exact color of the patina in a picture. We have chosen for a faded green, a verdigris.


8This week, the painters started to paint the window frames and will going on to paint the ceiling.


3-1Everything wrapped in!


In the meantime I am thinking about the type of wall lights we need to have in the room.

I already ordered a pair of French LXV appliques in an unlacquered polished brass from Vaughan which will be added on both sides of the mirror.

And this pair of 18th century Italian wall lights, which I found a couple of months ago at Brigitte & Alain Garnier Antiques, will be hung on the paneling.

A few days ago we received the rim lock and handles for the secret doors from van Cronenburg Architectural Hardware.



In one of the next days I will have to make a decision about the window treatment fabrics! There are so many beautiful fabrics ! So hard to make a decision!
