good bye...

I'm not very good with goodbye's....because i tend to shed a tear or two. But not today. Do you see a peek of the black ceiling fan in the pic above? I bid it farewell.......






thanks to my electrician, who happened to be in town this last weekend. His name is "dad", and he's quite pleasant to work with.......



in it's place, i put my beloved grey chandie that's been sitting quietly in a corner for the last year......







i have to say i do love it....















I hope you all have a wonderful long weekend...
oh....and my good friend Anne over at City Sage said i really should bring 8 pairs of shoes to Spokane with me, 2 pairs for each day...because shoes are like food....you need a variety to stay healthy.
I think i have to agree.

Much better! I am laughing ~ we have 2 of the most hideous fans in our house. It has gotten to the point I don't notice them so much but hmmmm....after seeing what you've done I feel a change is in order. You know what? I didn't get the Friday drinks email! Can you send again? Have a wonderful weekend.

trash talk said...

Everybody should have such a complying electrician! The new lighting really makes an impact.
I always carry a suitcase with just shoes...one just never knows.
I love the fabric on the pole lamp shade. Who's design is it?
The whole room is inviting and just beautiful.

Oh! I SOOOO love it! OF course, I've already told you how much I love your sunroom/office. Sigh.

(and in all honesty, I loved the look of the bed before I painted it too...but the paint was too chippy and I still have little ones in the house.)

Tami (Pixeltrash) said...

Super! It is a really pretty chandelier and goes perfectly. Those ceiling fans... whose idea were they anyway?

♥ miss.michelle said...

...I've always loved antique chandeliers, yours is perfect!

I can't give up my two ugly ceiling fans, they are much needed where I live. Though I do have three antique chandeliers elsewhere in the house. One in our formal dining, one in our breakfast nook and the other is in foyer. So that's not too shabby :)
Thanks for sharing the lovely photos!
Have a great weekend Kasey...

<3~michelle.f

TheSuiteLife said...

I love it! Now it's perfect. Of course you need at LEAST 2 pairs of shoes per day. Have fun in Spokane, I'll be living vicariously through you!

AshleyR said...

The blush colored chair in the last photo is dreamy. As for the shoes, a girl can never have too many. After all, they can make or break an outfit :)

Barb said...

That is GORGEOUS!!!!

Beautiful home.

Amy said...

Is that your house?? It's so beautiful! So full of light & rather girly but also sort of like a Swedish country house (which is pretty much the highest compliment I've got).

The Lil Bee said...

Oh. My. GOD! I have such chandelier envy right now. Not to mention overall decor envy. Your style is impeccable, lady. Look at those gorgeous pink tufted chairs!! I just love this!

Karyn - (French Charming) said...

Okay...I'm having serious jealousy issues...what a lovely room and that chandelier is so gorgeous!

Urban Farmhouse said...

Wow Kasey, this room is BEAUTIFUL!!

Suzanne : : S.HOPtalk said...

Oh my, my, my...I'm swooning over every bit of it. *LOVE*!

truly blessed said...

Kasey, what is that GREAT color on your walls? I looked up shale blue by RL on line and it looks so dark. If that gorgeous color on your wall is shale blue then, I'm out the door to get it!

Zoë Moët said...

That's your house??!! A real live house?? Not from a magazine? With children and a MAN living in it?? How do you do it? It looks amazing!

Ashley@AshleysBusy said...

Wow wow wow! This room is ab fab. I'm so obsesses with Norwegian/Swedish White and this is so there. Love. Lots of Love.
