This is where we left off last week…

I started off this week by installing the light fixture. This lighting fixture was gifted to me from my FAVORITE lighting manufacturer, Mitzi by Hudson Valley Lighting. I chose the Renee wall sconce in black and aged brass to dress the wall above the sink while adding some task lighting.

So, the plan was to center the light on the wall and then flank it with wall shelves that look like this…

but…I was’t loving how it was feeling so I ended up taking down the 2 shelves and made one long shelf. It felt more balanced and intentional. Sometimes in design it’s about trial and error. I can’t wait to show you how all of the details are coming together! Just a few more days until the big reveal!!! See you then!
