Dear CanadianMango,

Guess what ? ... you're right! I moved the torchiere lamp out of the dining area and put it in place of the other one near my bay windows in the living room. I also removed the one in the bedroom. So now instead of 3 I am left with just 1.
You got me thinking and I AGREE!! Thank you so much for your honest input
Best,
Madelyn.

Thank you for that! And I am finally embracing my green tiles. As for the closet situation..great observation and question. When Rich and I first laid eyes on the place we were wondering where we were going to store our stuff..but then we looked up and jumped for joy! Because of the high ceilings every closet has an adjacent cubby hole closet that reaches to the ceiling! Miracle of Miracles for our small little abode..

Those are my Shabby archives of Linens and sheets...soon to be encased in some gorgeous dream vintage antique Armoire. One day!
Thanks for the gorgeous part!

I know.. lived in Santa Fe for awhile and was up to my ears in Adobes. Never my style preference. Even in the remake of A Star is Born with Barbara and Kris- in their gorgeous adobe home in the middle of no where- it didn't do it for me.
Thanks for loving!

So appreciate this comment because it took me years to figure out this room. How do you deal with green tile without going kitchy? It went from light green to blue to yellow painted walls to accent them but when I simple relinquished to white it all started to make sense.
Sometimes the most obvious and simple solution works the best.

No dogs...just our Mr.Cooper cat. I placed them in the room to warm up the area and I am still experimenting with their placement and color.
Thank you so much for your wonderful comment!
