We now have walls in #patriciaspartypad! Yep, you heard right. This past week the walls went up in the loft. Like I said before, the walls are actually the wood boards from the old original barn on the property. Pretty cool, huh? To juxtapose the rustic vibes of the wood walls I’m adding glam accents through pieces like the Bellacor pendants (which arrived this week) and stud details on the furniture. Speaking of furniture, this truly amazing sofa from Taylor Burke Home was ordered for the space in navy velvet. It’s the sofa of my dreams, I can’t wait to see it in person!
We made a lot of progress this week as we also picked out the (faux) wood floor for the space. Since there are some grey hues in the walls, a light tan with grey accents in the flooring would lighten up the space and compliment the existing tones. Plus, part of the floor will be covered with this Karastan rug.
This week we’re working on the ceiling then onto the floors. Do you want to know what hell is? It’s staining over 100 wood boards that are twice as tall as you in 85 degrees. I think my back will never uncoil from the hunched over position, my blisters will never go down and the scratches on my knees (how they got there, who knows?) will never heal. However, now that the boards are staining they can go up on the ceilings this week.
On a happier note, I can’t end this post without talking about these adorable custom napkins from Sequins & Lipstick shop. Tammy was such a pleasure to work with and her store is full of possibilities to make you the hostess with the mostest. Can you imagine custom #patriciaspartypad matches too?!
