Week 5 of our Great Room remodel…
Getting closer…! The center cabinet arrived and was installed during the past couple days! I am grateful for all of the attention to detail that Petrick Construction has given my project. Seeing the cabinet installed sure brings a coziness into the room, something that was missing before. I feel between the installation of the beams, removing the shutters from the upper windows and the height of the center cabinet ~ the room seems more balanced than before, don’t you?
Also this week ~ I had my curtain rod hung. I told my husband when we moved into Fishtail Cottage that because we have shutters, we would never need window treatments…lol! I look forward to seeing window treatments in this room after six years. I will be putting the shutters backup on this window.
I chose a more dramatic finial because of the room size. And these pretty Pottery Barn Alessandra Floral panels for the room. I love the this muted blue, and think it ties into the patio decor just outside the french doors of this room.
Today the hardwoods are being installed which is very exciting. I am getting so excited to see all the visions in my head coming together!
I am on the look out for something substantial for the upper shelf of this cabinet…any ideas? would love to hear…

Don't go out hunting for something to fill your space, let the piece find you, this is when your look will pull together perfectly imperfect with just that right piece adding the right kind of rightness needed.
thank you for visiting my place inspiring that sweet small cage of interest. Tracie you too could set out to fill the shelves with piece of nature, some twigs laying across the shelves and cages of sorts, also bird art leaning against the back s of the shelves with books of nature of course old and tattered helps.
You can change out this space now and then by borrowing from your homes decor. How fun to have this much space to create.
Love it all.
Blessings to you and the space that shelters you and your family.

Have a wonderful weekend Tracy.
For the top shelf - I'm agreeing that you should let it find you - but I'm seeing something vintage - for now you could even make a sign out of some old barnboards (if that's your style).
Going over to Pottery Barn to check those curtain out - wondering if they come in a more neutral colour for my boring beige living room.
Have fun - it's really coming together now.

The room is coming along beautifully. Love the cabinet! Can't wait to see it when you have the room all decorated.
p.s. Thinking of doing a Christmas link party with a few other blogs. Would you be interested? Not sure how it works. I'd have to research it.
Cottage?" I'm kidding. A big architectural piece, either wood or iron, would be cool. Not sure if you have a theme in mind. I say look around, go to your favorite haunts with your measurements, and see what you find. The hunt will be enjoyable and when you see that perfect piece, it will be so special! Enjoy! Hugs, Leena
I am yearning for shutters on my house both inside and out but the internal ones are so terribly expensive in New Zealand to buy. Obviously its nice if a house has its original shutters.
I love your chosen fabric for your curtains, it will look stunning....I'm thinking of some ideas for your top shelf, will have a browse later.
Your blog has a new look!
Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!
