Sonneman Quadratto Swing Satin Nickel Floor Lamp $600 instead of $900 but a bit pricey for our project.

  • Jim Oakley

    also good lines but 20" shade feels massive and only slightly taller than the other one. Also pricey.

Sonneman Perch Coffee Bronze Floor Lamp at Lamps PLus $350 instead of 530. Simple, but with a presence. Coffee bronze leg or brushed nickel?

    If you click on the picture, it should take you to the site, and then "details' on the right. There are 2 mats: one thick pure white and one velvety black.

  • Jim Oakley

    Hi Catherine - was this the you were sharing? I don't have a details button when I visit that page. It might just be for the author. What point are you trying to make? :)

  • Catherine Grison

    2 thick mats. One pure white top, one soft black under. Thin tarnished metal frame. Voila.

  • Catherine Grison

    Out of desperation for you to see the result, I just shared on Google + where I never post! ;-)

Eiffel Tower (Gold) - Artcom ;-)

  • Jim Oakley

    I'm not sold on the gold against yellow walls. I do think an interesting color could be nice - any suggestions?

  • Catherine Grison

    Are you kidding? I was, because of our running gag conversation about the Eiffel Tower you need in this office.

  • Catherine Grison

    When I was working on my translations, I stumbled upon this very chic one and I had to pin it for you. I would not do gold in our office either anyway. First time however I see something not tacky with this Tower....

SANELA Pair of curtains - grey 55x118 " - IKEA $69.99 I like the velvety cotton. Looks more than it costs.

  • Jim Oakley

    attractive and I like the dampening of noise.

  • Catherine Grison

    I went to Ikea and bought all the drapes I thought could work. I will return them/the ones we do not use. We need to make a date on site asap. ;-)

    kind of fun but could dominate. the olives (martini) kind of set the wrong tone for a therapist office, too.

  • Catherine Grison

    Nothing better than a martini to fix all problems! ;-)
