Happy almost New Year! We hope you all had an incredible Christmas filled with love, friends & family. We sure did! I just thought I’d give you the update on some new additions to the living room. If you follow me on Pinterest then you know I have been obsessing over these glass waterfall coffee tables for months now.
So for Christmas, Virginia surprised me with this beautiful glass waterfall table!!! I am IN LOVE. Thanks Mommy!!
The table is by Viva Modern – she got it on Ebay here.
You might also notice those gorgeous tufted linen chairs my Hubby got from Overstock. These were also on my Christmas wishlist.
Oh and our Oscar Sofa from ZGallerie came too! You like?
and.. look who’s already breaking in the new couch 🙂
I will be taking better photos of the entire room real soon! This is just a teaser. Stay tuned..
Happy New Year to you all!
Xo, Melissa & Virginia
Clay & I got so much done on the living room re-vamp this past weekend. I FINALLY picked the perfect aqua color for the accent wall. We chose Benjamin Moore’s bird’s egg . Clayton keeps saying our living room looks like a nursery hahaha but says he loves it. He didn’t want it too bright and wild, so this was the perfect color for us. BTW, I highly recommend using green frog tape to tape off your walls when painting. This stuff is amazing. There was absolutely no bleeding through at all! You can find frog tape at all home improvement and painting stores.
and as you can see we got the chandelier up!!
So romantic at night…
Special thanks to my handy little brother. Love you!
Here’s a before picture (notice the horrendous ceiling fan) – sorry for the crappy iphone pic
What a difference huh? Everytime we are hanging out in the living room, I can’t stop staring at the walls and the chandelier haha. Obsessed. We still have to get a coffee table & two chairs but the room is coming along quite nicely.
Also the Pottery Barn Teen lattice rug is working out perfect!
Sunday we headed up to San Francisco to check out the Oscar Sofa at ZGallerie that I have been obsessing over.
Turns out Clay liked it just as much as I did, so we bought it.
Can’t wait for it to come!
I couldn’t really get a good full shot of the couch since there was a bunch of stuff in the way! The SF store was small and kinda cramped. Anyway, I’m loving the tufted bottom cushion, turned legs, bronze nailhead & the soft pillows make it oh sooooo comfy. Classic. Chic. Timeless. LOVE.
Here’s a better picture from ZGallerie’s site
We ended the night off by going out for dinner & drinks at this amazing Thai restaurant – OSHA Thai
Hope you all had a fun weekend too!
Hope you all had a good weekend!! Clayton & I spent the majority of our 4 day weekend being lazy & sleeping in.. Well I did squeeze some work in there too. Yesterday we headed out in search for our Christmas tree. (He never lets me get a tree this early!!) haha. I have been hearing a lot about Frosty’s Christmas Tree Farm in the Los Gatos Mountains for a couple years now and thought it would be so much fun to go cut down a tree ourselves. Apparently the tree lasts a whole lot longer when you cut it down fresh off the mountain!
Such a gorgeous drive!
Frosty’s was amazing. They provide you with a saw, twine, free hot chocolate or coffee and the best part, they allow your furry babies! All their trees are $60 – any size! Check out the view!
20 acres of Christmas trees!!
Searching for the perfect tree!
Frank & I waiting patiently
Enjoying the view
Smelling the fresh air
And he’s done!
If you are thinking about cutting down your own tree this year, Clay and I definitely recommend you check out Frosty’s!! I think we started a new tradition!
Guess what came in the mail today!!!! My gorgeous Pottery barn Teen lattice rug (Yes I said PB teen). I am obsessed with this rug. I can’t stop staring! I decided on warm gray, but it also comes in light blue (aqua), mauve & black.
Anyway, the couch is on it’s way. Next on the to do list: pick the perfect turquoise/aqua paint color & paint! I’m also on the hunt for an antique chandelier, Chippendale chairs & new coffee table! I will keep you updated as Operation Glam Chic comes together. Stay tuned!
