When we were discussing dining room tables, she knew she wanted a turned leg table; something similar to a farm table look, but less rustic. You might remember the inspiration post here? She narrowed down her choices and ended up picking a classic turned leg table with a beautiful set of chairs and sideboard.
For the windows, I suggested paneled drapes using the allora fabric from calico corners. I liked how it has a neutral background, but incorporates the red to tie in her walls and the aqua blues to tie in her artwork.
Since we already had a significant amount of color from the walls, we decided on a neutral rug. She wanted it to be practical and affordable, because with two children under the age of six, a dog and a cat, accidents were bound to happen! So, I suggested the jewel jute diamond patterned rug, mentioned here.
She really has done a great job putting this all together and it shows. I love how she styled her sideboard too!
This is still a work in progress and next up she hopes to replace the mirror with a larger one, add some parsons head chairs to soften the wood tones (I really want her to do the parsons chairs in a pale blue buffalo check!) and perhaps a new chandelier.
And, next Monday, we will be trying paint colors for her living room! Fun, fun, fun!
