Paula Grace's New Home Continued

So far, you know my paint colors ~ here's a review...

Brittany Blue, Sandy White, Shaker Beige, and White Chocolate. There is also a pinch of...

Plymouth Brown ~ coffer ceiling in the family room. All colors are from Benjamin Moore.

I have wallpapered the cathedral ceiling in the music room and the tray ceiling in the dining room. These rooms are extensions of each other so the wallpaper in the same...

A Candice Olson design from York Wallcoverings. I love the way it looks! The ceilings in the rooms with this wallpaper are painted in the Brittany Blue. It really is pretty. They go nicely with my existing chandeliers.

The chandelier in the dining room went from this...

to this.

In the music room from this...

to this.
Both from Fine Art Lamps. The chandeliers that conveyed with the house are beautiful and good quality but they are just not my style.

I'm hesitant to show pictures of the rooms at this point because they seem so far from finished. I'm going to Market later this month. My plan is to finish them further. Maybe then. Unless you really want to see it from beginning to end (gulp!), I'll show them to you.

To round out the lighting, the new chandelier over the kitchen table went from this...
to this...

A Visual Comfort beauty.

Now I am in the process selecting chairs for the music room (it had a grand piano in it before so it will forever be known as the music room), selecting and designing fabrics, finding the just right counter stools, a new console table... and pieces for my foyer. I think I found the table but I am designing the chest. That is always the fun part for me... designing my own pieces.

My window treatments are either up (woven shades) or being fabricated as I type (drapes). The hardware should be here... hmmmm??? I wonder where it is??!! I feel a phone call coming on.

Details, details......

I DO have a grand plan though, which intimately involves Paula Grace Designs, Inc.

Stay tuned.


  1. Having seen your home recently Paula, I hope you decide to post the process photos! It is stunning and can only get more stunning-er :)(yes, I said "stunning-er"!). The ceiling in your music room with the wallpaper HAS to be shared, it inspired me to do something special to my boring tray ceiling!

  2. Oh Andie, you're so sweet! What did it inspire you to do?? I cannot wait to add your artistic hand to the mix. I'll blog about the table you're doing for me! Ok, I'll take some pictures and share. BTW, love your English grammer :) It is to the point!


How wonderful! You are leaving me a comment. Thank you!
