Sneak Peek and Another HomeGoods Find


My week has been so insanely busy, I have not had the chance to do a proper photo shoot of my new pagoda chandelier, but I promised to show it to you this week and a promise is a promise. Here is a little peek of it above and just below. I will take more photos of the room today for a post, but I absolutely adore it.


I posted before about how much I like this silver leaf pagoda mirror just below. I am about to start on a little facelift of my entryway and I really wanted a silver Chinoiserie mirror for it. I was envisioning a DIY with silver leaf and a vintage mirror and it was not a pretty picture. Pretty much my idea of DIY is knowing who to call for a project. When I was in HomeGoods yesterday on a little outing with my daughter, I found this mirrored Chinoiserie fretwork mirror for $79.99. Sorry for the lousy Instagram shot, but you get the idea.

Next I need to decide on a paint color for my entryway walls. I want a really pale ice blue and I'm thinking of Benjamin Moore Glass Slipper or Farrow & Ball Borrowed Light. Any other suggestions on a really soft gray blue?

Beautiful Beth!I can see it in a rubbed antique gold; however as that is not the look you want, a soft pewter gray?

The pagoda lantern is beyond stunning and I cannot believe what a deal! Not to mention all the other amazing things you're finding there. Our HG is east of me about 8 minutes if no cars are on the road which never happens. With traffic, it can be more than 15 minutes, so I rarely make my way over there. Looks like I'm missing out!

XOXO,

Love the mirror I'm lusting after it Chandelier is gorgious +++ should it have crystal droppers as it looks like tiny holes in the branches .Dont know if you have Dulux in America but Manhattan view is my suggestion for a blue.

Love the chandy and I am so glad you have the canopy that goes with it. After seeing it together, I could not imagine anything else. Our HG is very...what's a nice way to say it.."Jersey Shore?"

Just perfect!

The chandelier is stunning! What an amazing find. I love the mirrors too!

To echo Linda, my HG is...so heartland Cincy. Now I will conceded that I find plenty of goodies but no pagoda chandys to be seen and I go at least once a week. Sigh. Both stunning finds. Adore the paper in your dining room.

All are stunning, but you are really in the wrong line of work. I am convinced you are clairvoyant when it comes to finding great Chinoiserie decor!

We're on the same wavelength when it comes to color. I automatically thought of the color W65427, Strathmore Linen in stone from
Essentials Linens.

That chandelier is incredible! And I'm wondering why I never find beautiful items like your mirror in HG. Lucky, lucky you! :)
