I love the simple drama of this space. The blank chalk board makes such a contrast from what we might normally see when they are used in decor. The chairs and the chandelier are by far my favorite part of the otherwise simple space.
I have been seeing these little chairs just about everywhere and I love love them. I have used them in a few jobs but keep trying to figure out how I can have them at home.. maybe my office would be a good spot. Wishing you a very wonderful Holiday weekend- I hope you have wonderful plans!
We do our standard egg dying on Saturday and then dinner with family and friends on Sunday.
Susan Ferrier always knows how to make the most beautiful spaces. I love this just as much as so many others I have featured here on the blog. The sofa itself is to die for! I love the stone on the table to add that extra bit of dark drama to the space though. The color palette is based off of a pair of Uniforms from the owner Mary Pirllaman's Great Grandfather (one shown below). What an amazing bit of inspiration. I love everything about it!
I am totally obsessed with the Klismos chairs, it seems I am not alone. The chairs design dates back to the ancient Greeks so I see some staying power. There are so many styles and types currently available it can be hard to find just the right piece.
These are beautiful and the legs are so elegant.
Clean and contemporary and I love the boxy feel of the back.
Simple and modern with upholstered seats and nail head detailing
I love the open rope style seat on these.
Contemporary legs and an open back.
These are the beauties that I am waiting on for my own kitchen with a little bit of it all and the contrast in color they are perfect for me!

Simple elegance in this dining room is just amazing... simple clean lines with just enough detail to make it perfect.
It is a wonderful start for a Friday don't you think? I am almost done with my installations this week, it always seems to take a bit more time than you think, with a little something coming up here or there. I hopefully will be able to share some pictures tomorrow. But for now I will take a second to day dream about the upcoming weekend and spending a little time for me.
I adore these two dining rooms for their great sense of style.. so fun to mix it up don't you think. I am not really a traditional person and I think that being able to use things that you truly love in this way is what makes a house a home. Keeping it interesting is the point right?
Happy Saturday.... We are off to the Mart today in search of new pieces for the shop and projects that are coming this year, I will be sure to share my finds with you next week.
I feel for both of these photos when I saw them on pinterest next to one another, rustic with a bit of luxury. The light fixture is my all time favorite, which is why I put this one in our dining room!
As my birthday and the holidays inch closer I always feel the need to asses what I have done this year. There are so many things I want to accomplish and share that I don't seem to get to. There are also so many things that I have done this past year and I am thankful that I have been able to share many of them with you my lovely readers. I have been thinking that I need to compile a list (I have tried it before) of things I would like to accomplish for the year not a resolution list but a list of dreams and ideas to be realized and developed. Do you have list? Is it written or mental? I will admit I love lists, I am a list maker, I have been all my life. I love to write them out to get my ideas straight and my focus in the right place.
Aside from that I thought you might like a little dining room inspiration to get you kick started for the upcoming entertaining whirlwind we are all about to embark on. Isn't this beautiful and simple?
This is a picture of my dining room from many moons ago.. I have been "changing" it for what seems like at least 2 years now. I am struggling.. I want something unique, I want something that is a reflection of me, I want something I love..
So since this photo was taken I have painted the room Slate from Restoration Hardware, which I love. I have taken down the mirrors and put up a sunburst mirror, which I was not in love with and I have traded chairs many times. Now we are having some vintage chairs I found upholstered in vintage linen and I am so excited to say that I am picking up my new artwork today. I had a pair of pieces custom sized for that wall.
Keep your fingers crossed that they came out perfect and that I like them on the wall! Hopefully if they look super cool I will be able to share them with you when they are up.
I cannot believe we are already on Thursday- wishing a nice smooth transition into the weekend!
How completely wonderful are these dining chairs?? I just love everything about them! Tomorrow we will be going to Rose Bowl to search out some new dining chairs for my sister. Our hopes are high that we could find something this amazing.
I am also excited to pick up the custom lights that I had made from Cleveland Art while I am there! I cannot wait to put them in the bathroom, they will be like the finishing touch hopefully late next week!
