Hi there! It’s Harriet – i’m the reason for all of the large bills from Home Depot, Build.com, Pottery Barn, Sherwin Williams and Restoration Hardware, just to name a few. Yep, I’m the reason projects always seem to come in over budget. With good reason, though!
I know my husband is focused on the budget, but when you are trying to beautifully rehab a property, you sometimes need a little pizzaz! Unfortunately, pizzaz = money.
Over the weekend we did one of my favorite shopping trips for the Century Home – lighting! We shopped at two local lighting stores to find just what the flip needed…a little sparkle! While we always try to leave plenty of room in our budget for lighting and other finish projects, our daughter Mila couldn’t take her eyes off of one of the most expensive (and sparkly) chandeliers we’ve ever seen! Definitely castle worthy!
Here’s a sneak peak of the dining room chandelier we chose – a slightly tarnished silver that will definitely go well with the 100 year old sconces we were able to salvage.
We haven’t been updating the blog as often as we should, but I have to brag for moment. When you seen the end result … the transformation … your jaws will drop! My hubby is an intelligent man, but with all of the stress he’s been under to hit project deadlines, I think he’s been too distracted by the little things to realize just how beautiful the Century Home flip will be.
Ladies, this home is something we fantasize about. The walk in closet is the size of most bedrooms. The master bedroom is just as big and has a gorgeous fireplace, where the crystals radiate more than the flames. The kitchen is inviting and will be perfect for hosting large parties. Stay tuned, we’re just a few weeks away from hitting the market!
