Dining Room

I took a quick pic of the dining room this morning.  The painting is finished and now the beams are being attached to the ceiling.  I'll post that later…..

Townsend has had enough…can you tell by the expression on his face?  It's hard being the man of the house.

    Love the chandelier, and the fur on the chairs really softens the look and makes it yours. Good luck with the rest of the renovation!

    I love it all, you have a divine style and it is such a unique mix of everything wonderful. I love the chandelier as well and I just went on the design with in reach site it is still a bit too much for me. I have to ask you during your search for this lighting did you come across anything similar with a slightly lesser price tag.

    I’ve been lusting after that chandelier for seriously like YEARS, I saw it in some catalog that I now can’t remember ages ago and I’ve never forgotten it.
    the wool on the chairs is brilliant, I love your taste, so inspirational

    I absolutely love what you are doing with your home! All of it! The paint, the wall texture, the blackboard, the cupboard, the ghost chairs, the lambswool, the table! It’s all fabulous!! I’m seriously swooning over here.
    Can’t wait to see more 🙂
    Your one dog matches the lambswool and that made me giggle.
    Townsend is such a cutie!

    Beautiful! Love the neutral tones… it really allows the details to sparkle and shine. So clean and simple yet complex. The chair’s seat covers are brilliant.
    The wonderful inspiration I’ve gotten from this blog has inspired me to become more creative with my home decor — thank you!

    Where did you find the fur for the chairs from??? It’s so simple yet so nice. Do you plan to do anything with your floors or leave the slab? I have the same chairs around my dining table. Theyre tres chic! Do you answer posters questions?! Thanks, Cat

    Hi! I really love your blog and I’m about to start my own about interior and architecture general, I was wondering, how could I make it more popular and get more readers?
    Thank you, if you should bother responding!

    ANSWERS–Townsend is a Cardigan Welsh Corgi. The fur covers for my ghost chairs can be easily purchased at IKEA. Cut with ordinary scissors to whatever size you want. I have 4 dogs. My mantle was found years ago at a flea market, and it just happened to fit perfectly. My floors are epoxied concrete. (so easy) I hope that answers most everything. thanks for all the kind comments and for reading my blog…judy

    This kind of a random question… I want to get the same arm chairs to go with a table from cb2, but I am worried about the spacing. How long is your table? Do you feel that have 3 chairs on each side of the table to spacious enough for guests? Thanks and your dining room is amazing!!!
