A week ago, I closed on my new home built circa 1892 in historic Downtown Savannah.
I finally have another home to call my own, after bouncing around from home to home for 3 and a half months. The bad news is, every square inch of this house has to be touched by my hands. So I had my contractor immediately tackle the living room, because I need at least one room where I can go to have a little peace. Since I sold my last home fully furnished, I had to start from scratch. In the photo above, you can see what I’ve purchased so far.
Craftmaster, the makers of Paula’s upholstery line for her furniture, custom built me these two sofas. The chandelier and floor lamps came from a killer company called Currey and Company. And the paint color is Benjamin Moore, “Iron Mountain”.
One of my pet peeves is a white ceiling. I paint all of my ceilings. The living room ceiling is a pale, pale gray. I think by painting the ceilings, it just really finishes off a room.
Cream drapes are being made for the windows, floor to ceiling. I’m on the hunt for a killer piece of art to hang above the chest of drawers. And I’m also looking for a coffee table…which isn’t easy, but I’ll keep you updated!
More blogs about my home, and pictures to follow!
And now for a sneak peak of Paula’s home, take a look at this:
Paula recently threw a baby shower for her stepdaughter Michelle Reed. Since she’s having a boy, I wanted to give my centerpiece a masculine flair. Paula recently found this statue of a man at a junk store in Savannah. So I set it atop several blocks of wet oasis, and created a foyer centerpiece. All the flowers and greenery were grown on Paula’s property. I used Casablanca lilies from the cutting garden, oak leaf hydrangeas from the front of the property, and I used English ivy from the pool area. I think the look was quite dramatic for a baby shower, but my philosophy is go big or go home, and that’s what I did!
Stay tuned for my next blog which is all about Liza with a “Z”…and me!
