Not everything in the October, 2010 House Beautiful feature of this NYC apartment resonated with me. Some of the mixes of English Country/Indian/Contemporary took me a while to warm to. But when I saw this fabric-covered desk, it was LOVE at first sight. It looks just like my West Elm parsons-style desk.
See this photo of Nate? Looks like he was looking right at me, doesn't it? Well, he was. Because I totally asked him for his Perfect Gray. And I did it all for you guys. His answer:
Light Grays: Benjamin Moore's Moon Shadow (#1516) and Silver Lake (#1598)
Dark Grays: from the Benjamin Moore Historical Collection (he didn't give a specific name)
And here is Nate doing a fist pump and saying, "Woohoo! Thanks for coming, Donna! I love your blog!"
Well, not really. But I did kinda get an inflated ego - being invited to The Nate Show and the HGTV luncheon. It was awesome meeting so many wonderful bloggers. I tried to meet as many as I could, so I introduced myself to a couple of ladies while we were in the 'green room,' asking, 'Are you design bloggers, too?'
One replied, 'No, and I really don't know what a blog is. What is it....?"
Then I remembered I'm just a gal with a computer. Pushing up pretty pictures.
I am one lucky gal. I'll be in New York City this week for a taping of The Nate Berkus Show featuring an audience full of design bloggers. I am so excited and hoping to meet a lot of fellow bloggers...
Thank you all for hanging out with me here. It's so awesome to know a group of folks that are excited about the same things that I am.
As a mirror-lover, I have been drawn to mirrored furniture and vanities for a while. But I've never taken the plunge. I think I'm afraid I'd get tired of a mirrored piece or that it would be a little too glam for me. But I don't know.....these sure are lovely.
Do you have a mirrored piece? What are your thoughts?
