A Lucite Wish Come True!

House Shoot May 2010 094[1]

I had been lusting after a custom iomoi lucite tray since I first learned of the fabulous stationery company a couple of years ago. I have long loved the gorgeous La Fiorentina-inspired Coakley Cay pattern so you can imagine my excitement when I won the exact tray I had been longing for on Peppermint Bliss. The giveaway took place a few weeks ago and the tray arrived, perfectly packaged a little over a week ago. I knew that I wanted to place it on my new vintage console in my home’s foyer and am thrilled at how fabulous the two pieces look together!

A HUGE thank you goes out to Bailey of Peppermint Bliss for hosting such an amazing giveaway! If you’re not familiar with Bailey’s blog, you should definitely visit soon. She has a great eye and the sharpest sense of humor. She seriously cracks me up in every post. Bailey recently started her own design business in Chicago and I am very much looking forward to seeing more of her beautiful work. Bailey’s living room was featured along with mine on AOL's ShelterPop this past Friday. You can see both rooms here.

Paloma,

I have been looking for a silver mirror for my dining area and LOVE this one! Do you mind telling me where it's from?

Hello Lover... said...

You are incredibly lucky! That is also the tray I have been coveting. I even have some matching la fiorentina fabric I've been waiting to use on some stools beneath the tray!

Love the lights. Were they a Circa Lighting find? Also, I am somewhat new to the blog. Does Sally Wheat have a retail and/or online store? All is gorgeous...as always=:)

Paloma {La Dolce Vita} said...

DC Metro Mommy, thank you for your sweet compliment!

Yes, the sconces are from Circa Lighting. They are the Bryant style designed by Thomas O'Brien:
