Meet Odalie

Odalie, meet my friends! Friends, meet Odalie.
She is named after Odalie Fox, a character in The Foxes of Harrow by Frank Yerby. And if you have read it by chance you most definitely understand why the name suits her.
As soon as we pulled into the driveway I began scurrying about the house collecting my paint brushes and painters tape. I had doubts about putting a white mirror on a white wall. I had picked up a very nice “greige” recently and had enough to do the whole wall… but Holy, Big Job Batman! I decided to bring her in and take a look before tackling our 18 foot ceilings!
And I am uber thankful we did! Because while it is definitely white and our walls are most definitely white, you can see that there is a subtle difference. Enough to feel peaceful but not too boring. Plus I hadn’t taken into account that surprisingly NOTHING else in the room is white! WHAT??? I am scratching my head on that one still…

She will be hoisted and mounted about 2-3 feet higher for a more dramatic view from the living room and doorway and then it will be time to work on accessorizing some final touches!

I can’t wait to show you a couple other things I have been working on for the dining room, one of which is pretty visible in these shots, the other is a little more elusive!

  1. oh i love her!! she looks perfect, can't wait to see the whole room.

    On a differnt note, I had the worst paint spraying day ever. I didn't clean my gun good enough and it caused major delay. I wonder if I need to soak it in paint thinner after every use, what a pain….


  2. This is quite the statement, and utterly gorgeous to boot. Wow!

    I just discovered you on Melanie's (Pretties and Posies) blog roll, how have I missed your beautiful blog thus far?

    Nice to “meet” you!
    Have a wonderful week,


  3. Wow, Holly! That looks fantastic!! I have been trying to find a spot in my house for one ever since I ran into you at Homesense…..maybe in my little girl's room??
    It looks amazing in your dining room!


  4. Horray!!!! It looks stunning in your dining room! Love everything I see in that reflection!!! I can just imagine you guys trying to get that giant mirror home LOL!
