Bridging the Gap

I'm just back from a very last minute trip and visit with a dear old friend, who just had her 3rd baby. What a whirlwind {and adorable baby}! So forgive me for only sharing a recent purchase for our dining room, today. 

That being said, it's still a pretty amazing mirror that I think really bridges the gap between casual and formal in our new dining space. As per usual, it's not exactly what I had pictured here, but when I found it, it just seemed too perfect to pass up. 

The intricate carvings make it feel special, while the mid-toned wood keeps it safely on the informal side. Exactly the look I am trying to achieve. 
Before you even ask, I am sure you can guess, I found the mirror at HomeGoods. I swear, you must think it's the only place I shop. 

Hung above our refinished eBay dresser, I think they make quite the pair. 
Funnily enough, it was actually T's idea to include a lamp in this corner. I wasn't too sure about it, especially this lamp, but it seems to be working. Of course, the collection of candlesticks playing off the straightness of the lamp, help. 

So, that's that for this corner. 
Hope you had a nice weekend, too. I've got a couple fun things planned for this week, so hopefully I'll be seeing you.
