Big weekend, so I send you best wishes. Tis the weekend before Thanksgiving, so I imagine this to be your last dash if you are having folks over (or travelling) next weekend. On the other hand next weekend could be a perfect time to get a lot done if you don't have plans. When I taught school, we were always prepping on Saturday and Sunday because after this the holidays are upon us.
Abby - I agree with Opo that sconces don't follow the 57" rule and they should probably have another rule entirely. I would say be consistent. Match the ones you have already up or - if starting from scratch - find a height that gives you light but doesn't get in your way.
Vivienne - With air purifiers I used to buy fancy ones, now I just buy simple Hepa filter ones that won't disappear in a year (along with their filter replacements). I like Bionaire and Honeywell lately. Get whatever size fits your home best.
This Week's Assignment:
In the Deep Treatment you are diving headfirst into the bedroom, working to declutter and luxurify your space. I do recommend an air purifier and use them ourselves in both of our rooms. While it may seem to some like an indulgence, keep in mind that indoor air is more polluted than outdoor air and that 8 hours of breathing while asleep means you are sucking in a good deal of the room at night.
One Room Workout? Start Cleaning up! Clean up is as important as set up and it usually takes longer than you think, so start in on it now. Additionally, take a close look at your artwork this week. I always find that people do a disservice to their art by hanging it either too high or in an unflattering grouping. Fixing this can really make a room sing.
