Baby Bo Peep lives in Lubbock, and if I have the windy dusty reality where I live
mark her down x 20!
to get us through the howling month of March
we discussed often how helpful it would be to have a project to dream of and tackle in April
the current formal living room began with great bones
even though this living room had moved way beyond this point
it still wasn't exactly what I had in mind just yet
we are still living with lots of furniture and accessories that came from 1107
like this wonderful farm table from World Market that was in our outdoor kitchen
I love it and the benches that went with it...but it seemed too informal for the living room at 822
and all this while I have been toying with a music room versus a dining room
the room began with a coat of the palest pink paint to compliment the very dark rough beams, white carpet and very white trim
at the end of the room is a very large window where our 1921 black grand piano sits
making this more of a music room than a dining room...in my dreams!
so....how to bring it all together???
in the dark perilous windy cold nights of March I have been being so inspired by your
photos and ideas and vision
below are a few
from the very talented Joan and Dan
this began my mental process to change the dark table with benches into something more
I love this but too too white
I went back and forth for a long time on
slips..these are so beautiful and I found lots of really pretty ones!
I really love this too...I love the mix of all the shades and texture
I so very seriously considered this...something about it that I just can't get out of my mind
I usually choose without much thought but I had about 5 different carts from about 5 different stores
racking up those Southwest Miles on my VISA
here is what will arrive only a few days past April
the Harper Oyster Banquette from World Market
I will keep the dark farm table and have it covered mostly with some type of
burlap runner, linen table cloth..glass cloches and candles for sure..unless I go for minimal and just have the farm table...is that possible?
I love World Market..such a bargain with sales and coupons and free shipping
the Linen Lydia Chair
it's not the exact same color of the banquette which I like and it has nail head trim on the back
the tufting is different which bothers me a bit...but I do have a plan in mind to use antique pearl buttons
I actually have an antique candelabra similar to this and my curtains are blue dupioni silk
which I am seriously considering replacing with pink??? should I???
I'm not a bow person and I would only have lights like this at Christmas
I love the heavy white floor baseboard through the sheers!
The large mirror over the fireplace mantel...yes yes yes on the candles and old silver!!
Our last freeze is usually about the 3rd week of April
I plant when the barn swallows arrive
so here's to spending the early weeks of a thawing April indoors on the
APRIL DINING ROOM PROJECT
and then blog friends?
I will be in touch with you for inspiration on the
