cabin fireplace – searching for a screen

cabin fireplace // smitten studioOver winter the work has definitely slowed down over at the cabin, so the status of our fireplace area is still much the same as our last update. It is nice to look back at how far we’ve come and I am going to head over there soon to get back on track with my growing to-do list.

Now that we have the fireplace cleaned up, the hearth tile changed out, and started the process of styling the area I am on the hunt for a new fireplace screen. At least I can always do the shopping while I’m staying warm in L.A. (or New Zealand for that matter)

fireplace-screens-smitten-studioI never knew how many variations of fireplace screens there are out there, or how expensive they are either… jeesh! I kind of love the “lexington” screen but I could also see myself going with something super simple and basic like the “olde world” too.

1: Mirrored Screen from Neiman Marcus // 2: Diamond Screen by Minuteman Intl. // 3: Peacock Fan Screen by Uniflame  // 4: Golden Branch Screen by Horchow  // 5: Olde World Screen by Uniflame // 6: Lexington Screen from Horchow

searching for a new chair

smitten studio chair guideLike I said last week, I am now on the hunt for a new chair to sit along side our new blue sofa. Here’s a round up of some of my favorite upholstered options that are out right now.

The new chair will be heading for that empty spot between the TV console and the chaise side of the sofa (where we used to have the two yellow ones).
