Photo Shoots and Farmhouse Mirrors

 Love love love these Woodlawn blue walls...I am so happy with the color.
With every day I grow to like it more and more, which is a good thing.
With paint it can be a bit nerve wracking to pick a color and then discover
it really isn't what you had in mind after all.  So with that, I started thinking of 
perhaps painting the dining room walls.  But I really love the simplicity
of how the room feels, so I am not sure I am ready to pull the paint trigger just yet.
 I was considering painting the doors, and maybe that is all I would need for awhile.  
One thing that I will be changing is the mirror in the room.  I found an amazing mirror
at AntiqueFarmhouse.com and it is going to make a huge difference in here.  
 This is the mirror I fell in love with, and it is four feet long and three feet wide.  
A statement piece for sure!  I think it will convey more of the french farmhouse
look in the dining room that I am going for....
When Antique Farmhouse asked if I wanted to work with them, how could I resist?
They have loads of rustic, cottage, farmhouse style accessories,
 from large to small items that can finish off your space,
which is exactly what I am hoping this beautiful mirror will do for my dining room.
 The reason why I am extra motivated right now to get all of my rooms 
looking extra pretty is because Fifi O'Neill is coming to shoot my home this spring!
Here she is looking through the camera lens at a shoot last year at My Desert Cottage.
Fifi and interiors photographer,  Mark Lohman will be doing their thing at my house!!
So all of the projects I planned to do this year at a leisurely pace, will now have to get done
just a bit more quickly!  
 Fifi is the author of books, like this one that is one of my faves, and 
she is also the editor of several magazines, so I am not sure where my house 
will be featured quite yet.  All I do know, is I want it to look the way I imagine it can look, 
which in my mind is pretty amazing (hahah) I just have to finish my projects....
 Like this one, with the help of Mr. Maison Decor, I scored on this antique French daybed 
with the makers mark still welded to the frame.  I have to make a mattress and
 cushions and pillows and all that stuff.  I imagine it sitting outside in the French courtyard 
I created last year, which is almost finished, but not quite.
 So while its still winter time, my mind is firmly planted in spring, 
where photo shoots will be taking place, and things will be painted and new mirrors 
will be hung, creating my vision of that french style home I aspire to create.

So for now, this dream is still a dream...
but I am getting one step closer, one step at a time.
