The best part of design is the creativity.....I love putting rooms together and I don't think I will ever tire of it.
In fact I feel that when I am living in a senior facility someday I will be the resident designer. And a bossy one at that.
I wonder if my husband will just be so sick of me and my ideas that he will keep me bound with duck tape and an old tube sock stuck in my mouth.
Since that hasn't happened yet..... I was putting together a design for a dining room.
Before I get to the plan how about we take a look at my inspiration using a favorite wallpaper from Schumacher.
I have been dying to use it for somebody! It comes in a couple of other color ways....
I kind love this straw color...it has a french feel doesn't it?
Then of course the blue has me panting a little also.
This is the last one which is really not my fav but I am sure if hung....I could work with it. Give me a challenge.
Back to the first color way....Oyster.
It has a tiny bit of gray/lavender in it.
Which I am falling for.
Here is what I came up with....
I would use the natural sisal rug....I can't get enough of this look....especially with a traditional table.
Also I love the scrim [linen] for the curtains. The good thing about using this is the savings on lining etc.
How about we paint the ceiling a light lavender. Are you with me?
White painted queen anne chairs with the gray velvet covering the seats. These are from Hooker
But I know you can find some while you are out thrifting:)
Last would be the textured fabric from Laura Kirar for Highland Court. How about a couple of pillows in the arm chairs....
The chandelier...and I am inclined to go fairly traditional....only to keep the room classic and timeless...would be this little beauty.
I have always loved it..... from Currey & Company which I found on Lamps Plus.
It would be such a pretty room....maybe horizontal boards on the bottom half of the wall....to counter the vertical lines of the wallpaper.
It's a good thing I am a designer so I can get this stuff out of my system....
