    Lesley thanks so much. I have to tell you, I am from Richmond, the West End also, originally. I now live in the Shenandoah Valley but my childhood home is still in Richmond. My mom passed away 3 years ago and my dad just passed away 4 months ago and so we are having to sell my childhood home. Your beautiful home in Sleepy Hollow reminds me so much of my childhood home...... we have the same paneling in our family room as you have in yours. I was so happy to see you had not painted it. When we started getting our house ready to put on the market, the realtor suggested we may want to paint the paneling since it dated the house so much. I said no way, that there just may be some very hip young couple that would come into that home and see it as being very retro/vintage and perfect for their funky vintage/thrift store style. I hope that is what happens and some young couple will move in and start their family in the house that brought so many years of happiness to me. I am in Richmond often working on clearing the house out and "staging" it with my brothers so we can put it on the market mid February. I want to show our realtor the photos from your home so he can see just how awesome paneling can look, even in 2015. But, anyway, sorry for that nostalgic moment from me, thank you so much again for letting me know the paint color. I just love it and will try to find a color that matches the Martha Stewart one. Have a great day Lesley!!!

    That's a wonderful story! I hope the sale goes quickly for you. Send me another message with the link to the house when it goes on the market-- I'd love to see it!

    Hi! The fish is actually a vintage "mount", or fish taxidermy. I bought it at an antique store. If you wanted something similar I would look on eBay, or even better: Craigslist in your area. That way you don't have to pay for shipping!

    Zone: BedroomMood: The one that didn’t get awayWhy it works: Moving in with someone can be treacherous, especially when it comes to agreeing on color palettes and furnishings in the bedroom. Often your partner is happy for you to take control, until he or she utters this line: “There’s just one little item I’d like to add … ” It might be Granny’s rocker or a collection of vintage albums. Or it just might be a giant marlin that threatens to take over the entire room. Never fear: This bedroom offers a perfect example of how compromise can lead to design excellence.

    Lesley purchased this mounted sailfish on the website of local antiques store Class and Trash. “I knew I was done,” she says. Then she built the rest of the room around it. She pulled colors from the fish for the turquoise walls and used an orange duvet she already had. “It looks like it’s kind of careless, but it’s not,” Lesley says. In this room, as with others in the house, Lesley let one piece lead her to the next, using each product as a guide on the path to the room’s completion. “I feel like a room is done when there is a really good color and space and shape balance,” she says. She laid out everything she had and looked for gaps, filling those with pieces that would tie the room together, such as this plaid blanket that marries the two bold colors.Wall paint: Blue Fir, Martha Stewart Living
