Boyfriend decided he wanted a wall mounted bottle opener as his anniversary gift. Very practical and necessary as we are forever losing our real bottle opener. Also we have yet to paint/decorate the kitchen in the new condo. Instead of just getting a plain boring one I picked out this lion's head from Pottery Barn - for $12.
I think it's pretty awesome but then again it's Boyfriend's kitchen (for now!) and I am loathe to make a design decision without his approval. Also we still haven't picked out a paint color though we are leaning towards the red family. Old Sallie's Niece would have just said "hey it's only twelve bucks, just buy it" and then decide but luckily I have restrained myself.
In the meanwhile I have become very fixated on decorating the condo. Boyfriend got to have all his fun with renovations and now it's time for some finishing touches. I want to get him some accent pieces - especially for the bedroom which has absolutely no decoration as of now. Look for some posts on DIY decoration soon as I've become one of those boring nesting types now.
In my online bargain hunting I did find the coolest thing and I can't decide if our decor would allow it but I wanted to share it nevertheless. It's a head made of recycled glass, awesome! And available at Pier One Imports for $15. I think it would look pretty cool in an office. Who doesn't need to clear their head sometimes?
What do you think of my design ideas - tacky or trendy?
