If you're a regular reader, you are probably happy that the posts gushing over Olivia are over now.
Two weeks ago, I picked Olivia up from A & D Custom Framing in McLean and brought her home. Last week, I had the thermostat that hogs space in the middle of the wall that would be her home moved and upgraded (more on that later this week). She was finally hung last Friday.
On Saturday, I stopped into Pillow Mint in downtown Charlottesville (if you're a design blogger, you probably already know owner Anita Davis' blog) and found a great pillow to tie the other colors in the living room (black and yellow) in with the Olivia's blue background and the gray-blue walls of the living room. Bonus: the pillow was on sale for 40% (there's always a sale at Pillow Mint!).
I'm pretty happy with how things turned out! Any thoughts on the garden seat? Should I leave it white? Or, should I put a different table between the chairs (I have a bronze-ish, round campaign table) and move forward with painting the garden seat yellow to use in a different part of the room?
