I finished setting up the bar cart and it is great. You'll have to wait for the reveal to see it in all its glory.
Inspired by this wonderful masculine fireplace by Mark Sikes above, I styled the fireplace in the man cave and am very happy with it. It's a chic mix of abstract art and Chinoiserie. Here are some pieces I used to give you the idea.
This great vintage Fitz & Floyd dragon -
A black Harry Allen pig bank, one of my signature accessories -
This beautiful Chinoiserie lantern in black -
Other finds this week include a white juju hat and a Beni Ourain rug -
A black leather butterfly chair -
A Scalamandre black zebra golf umbrella -
A star like this one in the late Albert Hadley's apartment -
And I've started putting together the art -
I also did a great DIY. OK, so I didn't actually do anything myself, but it is a great "I came up with the idea and had someone else do it for me."
I bought this fringed lined burlap table skirt from Ballard Designs. It's $65.00 for the 90" but I got it on sale.
I had a bunch of black and white Greek key trim hanging around that I had gotten at JoAnn's for $5.00 a yard. I had my dry cleaners sew it on just above the fringe and it looks AMAZING. Masculine, textural, organic, elegant, and dirt cheap.
You'll see the table styled in the reveal, but here is a peek.
This coming week I'll be -
1. Hanging the art
2. Installing the new chandelier I had custom made
I hope everyone else has been busy -
