E-Design Hazard Of The Moment

Look, I know I have a problem.  The first step is admitting it, right?  When I shop for my e-design clients, I inevitably end up shopping for myself.  Ugh.  This mirror.  Case in point.


I have had this knot mirror in my shopping cart at Kirklands.com for oh, about a month now.  Um, and then it disappeared.  Yep, they were out of stock.  Well, maybe it was because it was a steal at $49.99.  Yeah, that was probably it.  So I trotted my happy self in the Kirklands store today and snagged the last one.  It was kind of a rush even though maybe no one else even wanted it.  Ha. 


My mirror (courtesy of Kirklands).  $49.99

Rich people's mirror (courtesy of Horchow).  $525


No surprise here, my pal Cassie pioneered the Kirkland's effort awhile back, scoring the exact version of the Horchow knot mirror for $45 at Kirklands too!  I've admired her find for awhile now!  Read about her mirror here!


Oh, and yes, I caved.  I can't help it.  I had the whole DARN house painted baby fawn.  Uh- huh.  The WHOLE house.  Oh, and I'm lovin' every square foot of it.  Bye bye Comfort Gray that I also adored but was kind of sick of.  My bedroom feels new and it feels HUGE.  It's not not normal to be this excited over neutral 'ish' paint is it?  Don't answer that.  Just love me anyway, even if its because you feel sorry for me.  


Oh, more on the 'bedside tables in progress' later this week....

  1. I have the same problem...shopping for myself when I'm shopping for somebody else. Maybe we need a 12 step program.

    Love that mirror. A new Kirklands just opened up here after being gone from our mall for a few years. May not be a good thing. lol

  2. Shelli, the mirror looks fab! Is Kirklands the same as Target? We don't have Kirlands in CA! Is that the headboard you ordered from Ballards? You have such wonderful taste!

  3. It's totally normal to feel that excited about a neutral paint color. We just redid our laundry room and sometimes I just stand in there and smile. It's a freaking laundry room!

  4. What a great mirror. I know the feeling of stalking and shopping for clients. Unfortunately I am at a stand still with my shopping.

    But I do love your mirror.

  9. I love a good neutral. It makes everything feel fresh and open. Good for you. Can I get a Woot Woot for Baby Fawn!? ;)

  10. Dare I say that I like the one you scored even better?! Love that you painted the whole house... Soooo tempting. I figure I better finish other things first... my husband would kill me as then, the new paint color would of course require a lot of other changes.

  18. I know what you mean re: the shopping problem. I often call it an designer's occupational hazard. The mirror looks great and I can't wait to see this baby fawn color you are talking about. I'm still trying to decide what I'm going to do around here. These two-story ceilings can be a pain sometimes. xo
