New Finds

Sep 13, 2012

I've been searching for artwork to fill my huge dining room wall.  I found exactly what I want at ZGallerie.

Pretty, right?  Wouldn't it look great in my dining room?  I just love gray and yellow together.

The only problem is that it's $899.95.  That's a big problem!  I decided to go to Homegoods and check there for artwork.  I wasn't expecting to find anything because I only find things that I don't need there.  You can imagine how my eyes bogged out of my head when I saw this:

Granted, it's not quite as awesome as the ZGallerie canvas, but it's large and abstract with the exact colors I was looking for.  Here it is in my dining room:

Yay!  It looks great. 

Well...until you step back.

Ugh!  That's a big wall.  I'm going to have to add more artwork or maybe some sconces.  I also need to tie in some yellow florals now. 

I don't know if anyone else does this, but one of my first thoughts was how was I going to decorate for Christmas around yellow.  It's only a month (or two for me) of decorations out of the year, but it guides a lot of my decorating decisions.  I'm trying not to let that happen because I know you can work with almost any color during the holidays.  I decided a gold theme (and maybe silver too) would be great for Christmas.  Go yellow!

Those are new chandelier shades if you're wondering.  I moved them from the breakfast room because they were too big for that chandelier.  I think they look so much better in here.

I also found a great coffee table basket at Wal-Mart for $14.

I filled it with all of my usual coffee table clutter.

I don't know if you've priced these, but they can get very expensive.  I've been eyeing one for the last year that's not much bigger for $79.  I don't know about you, but I just couldn't spend that much on a basket. 

Don't you just love when you find an affordable version of what you have your heart set on?
