my pretend dining room

If I had a dining room… a real dining room… I'd have raised panel walls painted green with the trim to match.  The draperies would be made out of this fabric


My table would look like this

Amy perlin walnut convent table

And my chairs would be these

Carnegie hill antiques 8 french dining chairs

Upholstered in this

800-29 perennials jake  

With these (wired) and hanging over the table…

Circa antiques

And the wall over the sideboard (by the way the walls are a slightly darker shade of green than the sideboard) would be chock full of my mother's Majolica (on plate hangers), because she just all of a sudden got tired of it and passed it down to me…

Pieces sideboard

A basic seagrass rug under foot…


And in the kitchen Ina would be preparing the meal… wanna join me for dinner in my dining room?

Laura posted this image on her blog on Monday and I was fascinated.  I wasn't the only one.  Curious about the floor plan… is that all one house?  Yes, it is.. and others were curious too, so Laura did some more research, and scored more photos and a floor plan straight from the designer – architect Hugh Newell Jacobson
